Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

Manufactured by 3M™

3M™ Novec™ 1230 is a fluorinated ketone that is stored as a liquid and discharged as a gas. It is electrically non-conductive and leaves no residue after discharge. It distributes uniformly throughout the hazard zone and suppresses fire primarily by heat absorption from the flame.

Clean Agent


Manufactured by Chemours™

FM-200™ sometimes referred to as HFC-227ea is the most tested liquefiable clean agent of all time. It is an electrically non-conductive odourless and colourless gas. FM-200™ offers minimal downtime due to no clean-up, post discharge. It is stored as a liquid and introduced into the protected hazard as a clear colourless vapor. FM-200™ leaves no residue and is suitable for occupied spaces. FM-200™ has zero Ozone Depletion Potential.

Our High Performance Systems

Reacton uses a patented ultra high flow fire suppression valve. The valve, made from 303 stainless steel alloy, ensures that all extinguishing agents are discharged as designed.

Our systems feature:

  • Integrated Isolation Valve
  • Stainless Steel alloy 303 (UNS S30300)
  • Multi Port High Flow Discharge
  • Multi Cylinder & Agent On One Detection Circuit
  • Fully Vibration & Corrosion Tested

In-Direct Release System

In-Direct release systems from Reacton use our heat and flame sensitive detection tubing as a primary detection method. After detection, our patented in-direct valve activates releasing the clean agent through a network of discharge hoses and pipework. It is different from our direct-acting system, which releases the clean agent through the burst hole in the detection tubing.

Our In-Direct systems works in the following way:

  1. Once the detection tube ruptures, it releases the nitrogen held within it.
  2. This loss in pressure causes the Reacton patented valve to operate, releasing the clean agent into the protected area. This floods the protected area extinguishing the fire.
  3. Additional devices such as pressure switches are activated to alert building management fire alarms and ultimately alert people that a fire has been detected.

Reacton systems are designed to meet the most robust and demanding certification standards around the world. Our automatic fire suppression systems are independent of a power source which ensures detection and suppression in any condition.

Our systems are all manufactured and designed under our BSI ISO9001:2015 quality policy and are CE & DOT Compliant. Our components undergo vigorous testing such as ISO 16750-3:2007, ISO 21207, IEC 60529:1989.
