Firetrace International offers 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid for CNC and EDM machine tool applications. Designed as an environmentally friendly Halon replacement, the fluid has zero ozone depletion potential, a 5-day atmospheric lifespan and a global warming potential of one. It can be used in occupied areas and is among the safest and greenest fire extinguishing agents currently available.

The fluid is a highly efficient extinguishant designed to quickly suppress CNC and EDM machine fires sparked in oil-based metalworking fluids, coolants and lubricants. Using Firetrace’s pressurized pneumatic tubing for fast fire detection, a system using this fluid can suppress a machine fire in as little as 4 seconds.

Already used extensively in Europe by companies as part of their program to reduce their environmental impact, Novec leaves no residue on CNC machines or workpieces and will not contaminate expensive lubricating oils or cooling fluids, the company says. In many cases it is possible to return a machine to service minutes after a fire.
