Water mist system optimises the quantity of water used, maximising effective water volume by means of distribution of droplets of very tiny size, which produce a cooling effect. Thus, damage is reduced by reduction of volume of water used.
Water Mist Systems offer safe, effective and environmentally conscious fire suppression. Low & High pressure systems operate at a working pressure from 8bar to 200bar with specially-designed discharge nozzles that spray water in tiny droplets. This results in a fog that provides a highly effective combination of extinguishing actions.
Water mist owes its extinguishing efficacy to the joint actuation of 3 main effects:
Smothering: Vapour generated displaces an equivalent of oxygen volume, thus producing a smothering effect.
Cooling: Water spray in droplets of micrometric size produce a large heat collector surface.
Attenuation: Mist generated in the enclosure absorbs a great amount of radiant heat, thus protecting adjacent objects.
