Fight fire at its source
A release mechanism on an extinguishing agent cylinder - that's how simple the AMFE is. Once the predetermined temperature has been reached, the 3M NOVEC is released within seconds and extinguishes the fire at an early stage.
Extinguishing agent 3M NOVEC
The choice of the appropriate extinguishing agent varies from case to case. However, especially in the case of fires caused by or on electrical components, the use of conductive extinguishing media can cause additional dangers. This threat is not present if 3M NOVEC is used. It is completely non-conductive, has no corrosive effect and evaporates completely after use leaving no residue. These properties make it so valuable that it is also used in large-scale fire extinguishing systems in data centres.
The extinguishing agent cylinder is tightly closed at the factory and remains sealed even with the release mechanism screwed on. This means that the cylinders can be used for up to 10 years and the release mechanisms for more than 12 years. The only recommendations are to check the extinguishing system for intactness, cleanliness and filling weight. This can be carried out quickly and easily as part of regular system maintenance.
