Partnership brings new fire protection solution

Fike Corporation, a global manufacturer of fire protection systems, has partnered with The Standard Fluids Corporation to introduce Fike SF 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

This new product aims to replace the soon-to-be-discontinued 3M Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) fluid, offering the same chemical compound and quality standards.

As reported by Fike, the new fluid will be available to meet the demand for a suitable replacement.

The partnership highlights Fike’s commitment to providing high-quality fire suppression solutions.

Fike SF 1230 shares the same chemical properties as Novec 1230, ensuring users have a reliable alternative.

Amos Leap, Fike Fire Suppression Product Manager, said: “Fike SF 1230 fills the void left by Novec 1230 by offering the same chemical with the same level of quality and purity standards set and accepted for over 20 years.”

Ensuring quality and transparency

One of the main advantages of Fike SF 1230 is the transparency in its contents and validation process.

Luis Gonzalez, President of Standard Fluids, emphasized the rigorous testing and quality assurance processes: “Standard Fluids maintains a thorough record and archive of products starting from production and testing and verifying in our US-based ISO 9001 laboratory.”

This approach ensures that the quality of the product meets or exceeds industry standards.

The testing methods used for Fike SF 1230 were developed by the engineers who created Novec 1230.

This continuity in expertise provides customers with confidence in the product’s reliability.

Gonzalez added: “The credibility and experience of the team at Standard Fluids give our customers confidence that the quality of the product is maintained to meet or exceed industry quality requirements.”

Innovative technology integration

Fike SF 1230 integrates seamlessly with Fike’s existing system, utilizing the Fike Impulse Valve and the Axius rupture disc technology.

This integration supports longer pipe runs, small pipe diameters, and greater design flexibility.

Gonzalez stated: “The SF 1230 fluid seamlessly complements the Fike system’s serviceability as a direct drop-in replacement.”

Fike’s innovative approach in developing SF 1230 demonstrates its focus on providing advanced and environmentally friendly fire suppression solutions.

The company continues to offer a variety of products to meet the unique demands of different industries, ensuring that customers have access to reliable and effective fire protection.

Commitment to sustainability

Fike Corporation’s introduction of SF 1230 reflects its ongoing efforts to deliver sustainable fire suppression solutions.

The company’s collaboration with Standard Fluids Corporation aims to set a high standard in performance and reliability.

This partnership ensures that the new fire protection fluid adheres to the quality expectations established by its predecessor.

With the upcoming discontinuation of Novec 1230, Fike SF 1230 provides an essential alternative for industries relying on clean agent fire suppression systems.

The continued development and innovation in this field underscore Fike’s dedication to environmental responsibility and safety.
