Dyne introduces 3M Novec 1230 analysis service

Dyne Fire Protection Labs has announced the expansion of their laboratory services to include the analysis of 3M Novec 1230.

This addition comes as a response to the evolving needs within the fire suppression industry, particularly for environments where traditional water-based systems pose a risk to sensitive equipment or property.

Novec 1230, known for its effectiveness and minimal impact on equipment, is a clean agent that evaporates without leaving residue, meeting the strict criteria set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Understanding the importance of clean agents

A clean agent, as defined by the 2022 edition of NFPA 2001, is a volatile or gaseous fire extinguishing substance that is electrically nonconducting and leaves no residue upon evaporation.

This standard, which outlines the requirements for clean agent fire extinguishing systems, mandates that each batch of recycled agent be tested and certified to meet quality specifications.

The introduction of Novec 1230 analysis by Dyne Fire Protection Labs addresses this need directly, offering a specialized service to ensure compliance with NFPA standards.

Dyne’s commitment to the fire protection industry

The decision to include Novec 1230 analysis in Dyne’s service offerings follows 3M’s exit from this market segment.

Grant Lobdell, President at Dyne Fire Protection Labs, emphasized the company’s dedication to supporting the industry through this transition: “As 3M exits this market, Dyne will be here to help recyclers ensure existing Novec 1230 continues to meet NFPA 2001 requirements.”

This move underscores Dyne’s ongoing commitment to innovation and support within the fire protection field.
