Hygood Sapphire Fire Extinguishing Systems

Hygood Sapphire Fire Extinguishing System

Hygood Sapphire Overview

Hygood Sapphire™ Systems, using 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid have emerged as the solution of choice for fire extinguishing systems to protect high value assets and processes. Sapphire is a clean agent system which is proven to be environmentally friendly.

Today’s need is for a fast-extinguishing, sustainable, clean agent – free of any impact on the ozone and with the lowest possible emission of “greenhouse gases” – that can be used in occupied spaces.

Hygood Sapphire - How it Works

Fast acting Hygood Sapphire Protection Systems using Novec 1230 fluid are designed to work fast, rapidly absorbing heat to the point where combustion ceases.

Once actuated, Hygood Sapphire systems deliver the extinguishant within 10 seconds, stopping fire before it has a chance to spread. When fire is extinguished this quickly, the result is less damage, lower refurbishment costs and reduced downtime.

Service and Maintenance

In order to optimise the performance of any fire suppression system, it is essential that service and maintenance should be carried out by a competent engineer in accordance with the relevant standards, this includes F Gas trained engineers for any work carried out on FM-200 fire extinguishing systems.

Automatic Protection Limited are able to offer a full a “24/7” maintenance and call out facility as well as in house integrity testing. We can also service and maintain the detection content of the protected area, aspirating systems and leak detection, this allows us to ensure that all of the related equipment within the protected area - detection, cylinders, solenoids etc. are serviced, operate as intended and are left in good working order.

British Standards recommend that the systems are serviced twice per annum with a room integrity test (where applicable) carried out once per annum. A full service report is given after each visit, this will highlight any aspect of the system that will be due for service exchange e.g. cylinders reaching 10 years old and requiring hydrostatic testing. This will allow companies to plan for this and allow for the additional costs within their budgets.
