FEV 3kg Novec 1230™ gas FiA race car fire suppression system N-TEC3000R. Technical list 16 FiA / MSUK approved 3.0kg 3M™ Novec™ 1230 gas fire suppression system with lightweight aluminium cylinder and remote charge push button activation.
Supplied with 5 recently developed atomising gas nozzles producing a fine mist resulting in a much larger surface area coverage and faster fire out times, the clean agent NOVEC™ 1230 is also safe on all electronics and requires no clean up – 3 nozzles discharge in to the engine bay area and 2 discharge in to the cockpit area.
8865-2015 is the latest standard from the FiA for plumbed-in fire suppression systems. It has been a great development for the safety requirements across many of the highest levels of racing and in some of the harshest environments for fire suppression systems to be relied upon.
Since the FiA implemented this new standard, FEV have consistently been at the forefront of fire safety technology ensuring we are always ahead of the competition in supplying the most advanced systems that meet the strict testing and regulations for this standard.
In 2019 FEV developed and launched the new and highly anticipated product range for FiA Standard 8865, the N-TEC Series. These systems have been designed and developed to use 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid as the next generation of fire-fighting suppressant.
This clean agent suppressant not only extinguishes a fire in a matter of seconds, but it will also help to protect any valuable assets fitted on a motorsport vehicle, including electronics. Novec™ 1230 fluid is a waterless fire suppressant, it leaves no residue and is electrically non-conductive.
The 8865 range has been designed to provide customers with one of the simplest but most effective installations on the market. Using one multi angle cockpit bar nozzle and then two engine X nozzles the system allows for rapid installation.
8865 is mandatory for the following race classes WRC, R5, R3, R2, WRX, GT3, T1, RG-T and TCR.
Overall dimensions: 382mm length, 125mm height, 153mm width, 101mm bottle diameter, 4.6kg total weight.
