System overview Sinorix 1230

SinorixTM 1230 is an innovative solution that reduces the risk of fire damage in critical applications and sensitive equipment. At a proper system design concentration the extinguishing agent 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid absorbs sufficient heat to upset the balance of the fire. This cooling effect is supported by the oxygen reduction in the flame due to the volumetric expansion of the molecules. The high efficiency of the Sinorix 1230 system allows using a low extinguishing concentration. As a result, you need to store only a relatively small amount of the extinguishing agent to safely protect rooms. Additionally, the minimum 10 bar at the nozzle concept used by Siemens ensures fast and full evaporation of the Novec 1230 fluid, minimizing extinguishing times. Compact system designs are possible as Sinorix 1230 works with the Novec 1230 fluid which offers the lowest design concentration of all currently authorized extinguishing agents. Fewer cylinders and less space are needed for installation and storage because the liquid agent Novec 1230 fluid is stored in cylinders pressurized with 42-bar nitrogen.

Siemens' high-pressure technology allows higher design flexibility and enables the realization of larger and more complex piping networks compared to low-pressure systems. Special software precisely calculates the ideal layout of the piping network, so you get an optimal solution tailored to your individual needs. Sinorix 1230 systems can easily be adapted to existing ones with few alterations.

Agent overview Sinorix 1230

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid The innovative Novec 1230 fluid is non-corrosive and non-conductive, which means it does not damage high value assets such as delicate electronics. It is also harmless to people's health and to the environment. The Novec 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential, a short atmospheric lifetime of 3 - 5 days and a global warming potential of 1, making it exempt from restrictions of so-called “greenhouse gases” imposed by the Kyoto Protocol. This makes Novec 1230 fluid an innovative, clean, and future-proof solution.


Its low acute toxicity, combined with low design concentrations, gives the Novec 1230 fluid the widest margin of safety compared to halocarbon agents, CO₂ or inert gas mixtures. This makes the Novec 1230 fluid ideal for spaces that are normally or occasionally occupied. Since the agent is non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-explosive, there are no transport restrictions at all: the Novec 1230 fluid can be transported pressure-free via ship, plane or truck in unlimited quantities.

Typical applications

  • IT and server rooms
  • Telecommunication systems
  • Electrical switching rooms
  • Store rooms
  • Military depots
  • Clean rooms

Reference ─ Pappas Group Headquarters, Salzburg, Austria

The three IT rooms at the corporate headquarters of the well-established car trading and service company needed effective protection against fire. A complete fire safety concept was established that also included the innovative extinguishing solution Sinorix 1230. The latest generation of our chemical extinguishing systems extinguishes fire quickly and thus ensures business continuity in server rooms. Moreover, it is environmentally friendly and harmless for people and sensitive assets.
