Sinorix 1230 - system overview
Sinorix 1230 is an innovative solution that reduces the risk of fire damage in critical applications and sensitive equipment. At a proper system design concentration the extinguishing agent 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid absorbs sufficient heat to upset the balance of the fire. This cooling effect is supported by the oxygen reduction in the flame due to the volumetric expansion of the molecules. The high efficiency of the Sinorix 1230 system allows using a low extinguishing concentration. As a result, you need to store only a relatively small amount of the extinguishing agent to safely protect rooms. Additionally, the minimum 10 bar at the nozzle concept used by Siemens ensures fast and full evaporation of the Novec 1230 fluid, minimising extinguishing times.
Compact system designs are possible as Sinorix 1230 works with the Novec 1230 fluid which offers the lowest design concentration of all currently authorised extinguishing agents. Fewer containers and less space are needed for installation and storage because the liquid agent Novec 1230 fluid is stored in cylinders pressurised with 42-bar nitrogen.
Siemens' high-pressure technology allows higher design flexibility and enables the realisation of larger and more complex piping networks compared to low-pressure systems.
Special software precisely calculates the ideal layout of the piping network, so you get an optimal solution tailored to your individual needs. Sinorix 1230 systems can easily be adapted to existing ones with few alterations.
