Fire suppression for petrochemical, oil and gas infrastructure

Hydrocarbon Engineering,


TFPP has extended its award winning SAPPHIRE system to include 25 and 42 bar variations for effective fire suppression of critical POG processing infrastructure.

SAPPHIRE is a clean agent system, offering a greener and more environmentally friendly fire protection solution. The system is custom engineered for 3M™ NOVEC™ 1230 fire protection fluid, a clear agent with negligible global warming potential, zero ozone depletion and is safe for use in occupied areas.

10 years online

The first commercially available system to deliver NOVEC 1230, SAPPHIRE has been in use for over 10 years. SAPPHIRE is particularly suited to vital facilities in the POG industry, such as backup power supplies, emergency facilities, including onsite medical centres, data communications and other ancillary buildings, where specialist solutions that can suppress fires rapidly and are safe for use in occupied areas are a necessity. Technically it can deliver a rapid knock down extinguishant within 10 seconds, which can result in less damage to electronic or other sensitive equipment. This in turn can facilitate a much shorter recovery period; a key consideration in POG facilities.

42 bar system

The 42 bas SAPPHIRE system is ideal for applications which involve multiple risks. Selector valves are used to cover several areas from a central storage location creating a space saving and potentially more economical solution. There is also the opportunity for reduced pipe sizes, which can reduce installation time and increase overall cost effectiveness.

The SAPPHIRE system is UL listed, FM, LPCB and VdS approved, and fully meets EN12094 standards and the requirements of NFPA2001, ISO14520 and EN15004 to ensure the highest quality fire suppression performance in every application.
