Using water as a fire suppressant in areas where electronics operate and irreplaceable high -value assets are stored could be as devastating as fire itself. Torvac is an authorised distributor and installer of ANSUL Sapphire Gas Suppression systems, recognised as the most effective fire protection on the market today. The Sapphire Clean Agent System quickly suppresses fires and protects sensitive equipment without causing harm to people or the environment. The system is 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.
The Sapphire Gas Suppression uses 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid for total flooding applications. The clear, colorless agent has zero ozone depletion potential, an atmospheric lifetime of just five days, and a global warming potential of 1.0. The SAPPHIRE system suppresses a fire before it can be fully engaged and once the fire is suppressed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without harming any valuable assets.
The fluid can be used in total flooding fire suppression applications such as:
- Data processing centers
- Tape storage vaults
- Occupied or unoccupied electronic areas with very sensitive or irreplaceable equipment
- Telecommunications including cellular sites and switching centers
- Military systems including combat vehicles and marine engine rooms
- Transportation including merchant marine vessels and mass transit vehicles
- Recreation including pleasure craft and race cars
Sapphire Gas Suppression systems are ideally suited to suppress fires in areas that house electronic equipment that can not 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.
