Installation and service of the ANSUL Sapphire 25 Bar Engineered, Unbalanced Fire Extinguishing System, using 3M Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, shall be carried out by technicians/staff accredited by Ansul Inc. in the handling of pressurized containers and the system installation and service manuals. iii. Design of the the ANSUL Sapphire 25 Bar Engineered, Unbalanced Fire Extinguishing System, using 3M . Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, shall be carried out by staff accredited by Ansul Inc. using the Ansul's Sapphire Designer Program. Producer's description The Ansul, Sapphire 25 Bar, Unbalanced-engineered total flooding, using 3M Novec 1230 extinguishing agent, fixed fire extinguishing system is used to protect hazards, which may be either normally occupied or unoccupied. It uses Novec 1230 [(trifluoromethyl)-3-pentanone] gaseous agent, which has been developed as an alternative to Halon 1301, production of which ceased at the end of 1993, under the agreed adjustments made to the Montreal Protocol in November 1992.
7 Novec 1230 agent has been developed and is manufactured by 3M. Corporation (USA). Chemical formula - CF3CF2C(O)CF(CF3)2. The Ansul, Sapphire 25 Bar, Unbalanced-engineered total flooding, using 3M Novec 1230 extinguishing agent, fixed fire extinguishing system uses one or more storage containers arranged to provide the protected area with a pre-determined quantity of gas. The storage containers are designed to hold Novec 1230 in liquid form and Nitrogen, which is used to super-pressurise the container to bar (360 psi) at 20 C. These systems are designed and tested to operate in the temperature range: -18 C to 54 C or as stated in FM Approval 3014138. Novec 1230 gaseous agent is a colourless and has a density 11 times greater than air. Its atmospheric lifetime is 5 days. It extinguishes the fire through heat absorption and chemical means. Novec 1230 has extremely low toxicity and as it extinguishes fires at low concentrations it does not significantly reduce oxygen levels.
8 The LC50. (rat) is > 10% v/v. The NOAEL for cardiac sensitization (The Occupational Exposure Limit) value for Novec 1230. is also > 10% v/v, providing a large margin of safety when used at effective design concentrations as a fire protection fluid. The Ansul, Sapphire 25 Bar, Unbalanced-engineered total flooding, using 3M Novec 1230 extinguishing agent, fixed fire extinguishing system, is suitable for protection of hazards involving Class A, B & C materials. These systems effectively extinguish fires in enclosures containing hazards or equipment where a clean, electrically non-conductive medium is essential or where the cleaning up of foam, water or powder would be problematic. The minimum extinguishing concentration for Class A (wood and most plastics) combustible surface fires is %, requiring a minimum design concentration, based upon the required design factor. Class B (normal heptane) fire minimum extinguishing concentration is , requiring a percent minimum Schedule to Certificate of Conformity Certificate num.

The minimum design concentration for all other Class B flammable liquid fires shall be held to times the established cup burner value. There are three basic types of activation for the Ansul, Sapphire 25 Bar, Unbalanced-engineered total flooding, using 3M Novec 1230 extinguishing agent, fixed fire extinguishing system: pneumatic, mechanical and electric.
