Product Information

Improvements in computing hardware have led to an increase in Hard Disk Drive (HDD) sensitivity to sound. Clean Agent fire suppression systems, normally used to protect this type of equipment, can produce sound levels that may have adverse effects on noise sensitive equipment. The Acoustic Nozzle, designed for SAPPHIRE® fire suppression systems, decreases the acoustic footprint during a discharge. 
The Acoustic Nozzle directs agent into the hazard area and reduces the sound level compared with standard nozzles. Flow calculations are used to specify the nozzle orifice size for the correct quantity and distribution of agent. The Acoustic Nozzle manufactured by Johnson Controls is sold with suppression systems under the ANSUL®, HYGOOD® and LPG® brands.
