25 bar system The market standard 25 bar technology fire extinguishing system is also within the S i n o r i x p o r t f o l i o . T h e m a i n f e a t u r e o f t h i system is the ability to utilize large storage containers. s

42 bar system Siemens was the first manufacturer to develop a 42 bar high pressure fire extinguishing sys- tem that extinguishes fires even faster than the standard 25 bar system.

Storing the extinguishing agent in 42 bar cylin- ders allows higher nozzle pressures and more complex system designs. This both increases system efficiency and relaxes design con- straints when laying out and installing the system. For example, the extinguishing agent

storage containers can be installed at a sub- stantial distance from the protected area.

Advantages Less than 15 seconds between the start

of the extinguishing process and the fire actually being put out More consistent and homogeneous

atmosphere in the room Ability to construct complex systems

Applications S l o w - s p r e a d i n g e l e c t r o n i c f i r e s : computer rooms telecommunication systems electrical switching rooms electrical distribution rooms underfloor cavities for cables

Less suitable for flammable fluids and gases.

S i n o r i x 1 2 3 0 : Extinguishing system with

Novec1230 Fire Protection Fluid*

Operating principle T h e S i n o r i x 1 2 3 0 c o m b i n e s t h e l a t e s t g e n eration of chemical extinguishing agents with the high pressure extinguishing system design (42 bars). The nitrogen is used to transport the gas to the individual nozzles, where it evaporates rapidly, creating a homo- geneous atmosphere in the room. A single Novec molecule decomposes into 18 atoms when exposed to the heat of a flame. This results in a slightly reduced concentration of the extinguishing gas needed in comparison to HFC227ea. -

Advantages No risk of personal injury Efficient extinguishing performance due

to 42 bar technology and high nozzle pressures Faster than extinguishing systems using

natural gases, extinguishing agent release

in less than 10 seconds

High environmental compatibility (GWP = 1/ALT (halflife) of 3 to 5 days), no effect on the ozone layer (ODP = O) Extinguishing agent storage takes up little s p a c e a s c o n s u m p t i o n i s v e r y l o w L o w e x t i n g u i s h i n g a g e n t c o n c e n t r a t i o n needed Pressure-free transport of the e x t i n g u i s h i n g g a s P o s s i b l e t o u s e e x i s t i n g p i p i n g s y s t e m s , e . g . w h e n u p g r a d i n g H a l o n 1 3 0 1 s y s t e m s M o d u l a r d e s i g n o p t i o n u s i n g m u l t i p l e extinguishing agent storage containers in the protected area
