Brigit™1230 is a pre-engineered extinguishing system which utilises FK5112 Fire Protection Fluid (chemically known as fluoroketone, Perfluoro(2-Methyl-3-Pentanone)
The system is in accordance with international standards and is designed to provide gaseous fire extinguishing in situations where conventional extinguishing agents such as water, dry chemical, and carbon dioxide are unsuitable. It is a 2nd generation clean agent and the latest environmentally acceptable replacement for Halon 1301.
Brigit™1230 is safe for use in applications were people are normally present for both Class-A and Class-B fire risks. The system is typically used for the protection of valuable/critical assets (usually electronics), the loss of which would not only be the value of the equipment, but also the cost of business interruption. FK5112 (as a clean agent) leaves no residue after discharge, is electrically non-conductive, and is colourless and odourless. FK5-1-12 extinguishes fire primarily through heat absorption (80% cooling & 20% chemical reaction). Once discharged, it suppresses fire rapidly thus minimising damage to property and valuable equipment.
