Tyco Sapphire Fire Suppression

As part of its commitment to meeting all of the market's demands for high-performance total flooding fire suppression systems for critical asset protection, the Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Products offering includes SAPPHIRE(r) which uses 3M(tm) Novec(tm) 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

It is stored in containers as a low vapour pressure fluid that, when discharged, transmutes into a colourless and odourless gas. Typical total flooding applications use a low concentration that is well below the agent's saturation or condensation level. After discharge, the agent is dispersed through natural ventilation, leaving no residue to damage sensitive electronic equipment; it is also nonconductive and non-corrosive.

SAPPHIRE has a negligible impact on the environment with an insignificant global warming potential, lower than any of the halocarbon agents acceptable for use in occupied spaces. It has zero ozone depleting potential and a remarkably low atmospheric lifetime of just five days, compared with 107 years for Halon 1301.
