Cryptzo FK1230 (FK-5-1-12) stands out for its outstanding suppression power by ensuring efficient liquid agent distribution throughout the protected hazard. Cryptzo system hardware is optimized to work with the FK1230 clean agent. Known as “liquid that doesn’t wet”, this extinguishing agent far exceeds the benefits of water since it does not damage equipment and evaporates easily.
FK1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a fluoroketone with the ASHRAE designation of FK-5-1-12 and is manufactured by Cryptzo. Chemically, it is dodecafluoro-2-methylpentan-3-one, CF3CF2C(O)CF(CF3)2. It does not contain bromine, like Halon 1301 (CF3Br), which is the component identified as contributing to the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer. With zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), FK1230 is environmentally preferred. FK1230 also has the lowest atmospheric lifetime at 5 days and the lowest Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 1 versus other chemical clean agent alternatives.
It works by total flooding, extinguishing the fire in a few seconds. It is suitable for class A, B and C hazards. It is designed to protect delicate and important hazards such as data processing and telecommunication centers, banks, museums and libraries, where water would not be viable.
New extinguishing technology.
Our extinguishing system is fully aligned to the special characteristics of the agent, providing the most reliable and cost-effective systems. This system is pressurized with dry nitrogen, providing different pressures depending on the hazard’s requirements.
FK1230 systems reach extinguishing levels in 40 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they can cause significant damage. That’s the fastest fire protection available, When a fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business.
