The new CG and MA Series fire extinguishers feature the use of the 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. This clean agent offers:

The CG clean agent extinguisher is designed for smaller engine rooms up to 1,000 ft³ and deploys protection fluid from the nozzle automatically. The MA Series clean agent extinguisher was crafted for larger engine rooms up to 1,800 ft³ and deploys protection fluid from the nozzle automatically or manually with a Fireboy Manual Discharge Cable. Both designs in this series utilize a heavy-duty mounting bracket and are approved for Class B fires in engine rooms, machinery spaces, and similar industrial environments. Larger GA systems are also available with 3M™ Novec™ 1230 to protect enclosed spaces up to 4,000 cu. ft.
