Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems

The benefits of a Clean Agent Fire Suppression System are speed in suppressing fires, reducing damages, saving on floor space and allowing visibility. It leaves no residue and doesn't require costly clean-up, unlike sprinklers and other fire protection systems. Our systems are designed to extinguish a fire quickly and effectively thus allowing businesses to continue operating with minimal interruptions.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems are great in applications ranging from telecommunications and data processing to switch gear rooms, military applications and cell sites to high-tech medical applications. FM-200 fire suppression is also a widely accepted replacement for Halon 1301.

Our Clean Agent Fire Protection Systems feature a non-ozone depleting clean agent providing our customers with the fire protection they need and still protecting the earth's precious ozone layer. USGBC LEED Recognized.

annul sapphire clean agent system
Ansul Sapphire Clean Agent System

The heart of the system is revolutionary 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid, a clear, colorless and odorless clean agent. Stored in cylinders in its fluid form, Novec 1230 instantly vaporizes upon discharge, totally flooding protected spaces and absorbing heat better than water. In tandem with a sophisticated ANSUL AUTOPULSE control panel, the SAPPHIRE system suppresses a fire before it can start by detecting it at invisible levels. And once the danger has passed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without harming any valuable assets.

SAPPHIRE suppression systems represent the most effective fire protection on the market today. These systems are especially suited to suppress fires in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot be shut down in an emergency, where cleanup of other agents poses a problem, and in normally occupied areas that demand a non-toxic agent.

Applications that benefit from Ansul Sapphire Fire Suppression Systems:

  • Aviation Facilities
  • Commercial/Naval Vessels
  • Computer and Electronic Control Rooms
  • Critical Military Systems
  • Data Processing Centers
  • Medical Facilities
  • Museums
  • Offshore Platforms
  • Power Generation Plants
  • Tape Storage and Vaults
  • Telecommunication Switch Rooms

Ansul Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression Systems

The original "clean" agent, carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind an agent to damage sensitive equipment. And because there is no agent to clean up, you're back in business faster. To provide the most economical system arrangement without sacrificing performance, we offer both High and Low pressure systems including the exclusive ANSUL "Mini-Bulk" tank technology.

ANSUL High Pressure Carbon Dioxide Systems are especially effective for non-occupied hazards such as semiconductor wet benches, control rooms and paint lines. Whatever the application, from cylinder to nozzle, each system is custom-designed for your specific fire hazards.

High pressure systems use individual storage cylinders - from 35 lb. (16 kg) to 120 lb. (54 kg) capacity each - that can be manifolded together for rapid simultaneous discharge. Cylinder valves can be opened automatically or manually, and either locally or remotely using electric, pneumatic or mechanical valve actuators.

amerex clean agent fire suppression system
Amerex Clean Agent System with FM200

Utilizing the industry recognized FM-200 suppression agent, Amerex has developed an affordable pre-engineered clean agent suppression system to protect areas with sensitive electrical equipment and valuable data. As an industry leader in innovative design of products that provide the quality and performance you expect, Amerex has developed the CPS system to be the most cost efficient clean agent system available. The modular design incorporates pre-assembled wiring harnesses and keyed locking connectors on all electrical components to assist you in a simple and confident installation.

Agent tanks are available in two sizes having a diameter of ten inches making tank location in confined spaces less stressful. Tanks are charged with FM-200 in increments of two pounds in a small tank or three pounds in a larger tank for a custom installation without un-necessary expense. Electrical actuators are used for system actuation and can be reset reducing the number of components to be replaced during service after discharge. The CPS system is designed to use schedule 40 pipe giving you easy access to the materials you need to complete the installation. Nozzles are available in three designs; corner, side wall, and center room for flexibility in system installation to protect those "challenging" areas. The Amerex CPS is monitored by an electrical control panel that has a battery back-up for 24 hour protection during power failure. Photoelectric smoke detectors are used for detection and are cross zoned to reduce the potential for unwanted system discharge. A bell and horn - strobe device alarm when fire conditions are present. All electrical circuits are supervised and factory terminated.

MX 1230 Fire Extinguishing System using 3M Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

Lost data, the breakdown of machines and equip- ment, on which enterprise-critical business processes are proceeded, or a total breakdown of operations - those are risks, which represent a concrete existential threat for every company. Companies with unique and high-value technical equipment and central IT systems are dependent on the high availability of these critical operating resources. This is inevitably leading to growing expectations concerning fire protection. Here fire extinguishing systems are in demand, which detect a developing fire in its initial stage and extinguish it in a exceptionally fast and protective manner so that even sensitive components are not damaged e.g. by residues of extinguishing agent. This is why Minimax has developed the MX 1230 fire extinguishing system using 3MTM NovecTM 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. It is characterised by its fast flooding of the room (< 10 seconds) and its highly extinguishing effectivity. The extinguishing agent itself is toxicologically harmless; it extinguishes without leaving any residue and gets along with a small storage volume.
