One of the challenges in fire protection is providing proper suppression systems in sensitive areas with high dollar equipment or irreplaceable artifacts. For years clean agent systems and early detection has been a large part of this solution. However, as the areas we are protecting become more challenging due to unique designs we need to turn to new technologies that outperform the current mindset. Location of cylinders, pipe sizing and multi zone systems can all play an important role in providing optimal solutions to these difficult applications.

In this presentation we will explore advancements in higher pressure Novec 1230 and FM200 systems. We will review new cutting edge technologies that will allow for selector valve systems never before done with chemical agents. These systems allow for greater design flexibility and can be cost effective. We will take a look into a variety of clean agent applications and discuss basic design considerations. If you are designing fire protection solutions for data centers, archive storage, IT rooms or any sensitive areas like these, you will not want to miss this educational presentation.
