Sinorix 1230

Sinorix 1230 - Automated extinguishing solution based on chemical agent Novec 1230

Sinorix 1230 is the latest generation of our chemical extinguishing systems, offering a range of unique features and benefits. This integral solution from one source also comprises a comprehensive service portfolio – from risk assessment, system design, installation, and commissioning to maintenance. Sinorix 1230 is based on a long-term, sustainable technology that has one of the highest safety margins and ensures quick and reliable extinguishing without negative impact on the environment, especially on global warming. The 42-bar technology from Siemens is space-saving and assures maximum design flexibility.

    Sinorix 1230 is an effective and clean extinguishing solution that is ideally suited to extinguish smoldering fires. It causes neither damage to nor leaves any residue on sensitive equipment. This makes it the perfect choice for eliminating electrical and electronic risks. Sinorix 1230 typical applications
  • Data centers and server rooms
  • Telecommunication systems
  • Electrical switching rooms
  • Store rooms
  • Military depots
  • Clean rooms

The high efficiency of the Sinorix 1230 system allows using a low extinguishing concentration. Novec 1230 fluid even offers the lowest extinguishing concentration of all currently authorized extinguishing agents. Therefore, compact system designs are possible and less space is needed for installation and cylinder storage.

The Novec 1230 fluid is non-corrosive and non-conductive, which means it does not damage high-value assets such as delicate electronics. It is also harmless to people’s health. This makes the Novec 1230 fluid ideal for spaces that are normally or occassionally occupied. The agent is also non-toxic, non-flammable and non-explosive.

The innovative Novec 1230 fluid is safe, effective and not subject to regulatory restrictions or phase-out. The Novec 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), a short atmospheric lifetime (ALT) of 3-5 days and a low global warming potential (GWP) of 1, making it exempt from restrictions of so-called “greenhouse gases” imposed by the Kyoto Protocol. This makes Novec 1230 fluid an innovative, clean and future-proof solution. Sinorix 1230 with the Novec 1230 fluid follows EN standards and guidelines and is backed by appropriate certifications such as VdS, CNPP and others.
