ANNOUNCEMENT! Dyne Fire Protection Labs' New Service - 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Analysis

Dyne Fire Protection Labs is excited to announce the growth of their laboratory services to include the analysis of 3M Novec 1230.

Novec 1230 is a halogenated clean agent for applications where water-based fire suppression could damage sensitive equipment/property.  A clean agent, sometimes referred to as waterless fire extinguishing agent, is formally defined by NFPA 2001 as a “volatile or gaseous fire extinguishant that is electrically nonconducting and that does not leave a residue upon evaporation”.

The current, 2022 edition of NFPA 2001, the Standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems, states each batch of recycled agent shall be tested and certified to the quality specifications outlined in the standard.  According to Grant Lobdell, the President at Dyne Fire Protection Labs, “As 3M exits this market, Dyne will be here to help recyclers ensure existing Novec 1230 continues to meet NFPA 2001 requirements.”
