Water Mist Systems

 

Small droplets deliver big fire protection

 
Water Mist is a versatile and highly efficient fire-fighting medium. What differentiates Water Mist from traditional water based systems is its reduced droplet size. When a droplet of water vaporises, it expands by some 1,600 times. Because heat absorption is a function of surface area and not volume, smaller droplets mean more surface area and therefore faster heat absorption.

Water Mist has the unique ability to deliver water as a fine atomised mist. This mist is quickly converted to steam that smothers the fire and prevents further oxygen from reaching it. At the same time, the evaporation creates a significant cooling effect of combustion gases and blocks the transfer of radiant heat. In this way, Water Mist combines the fire suppression properties of both conventional water-based deluge or sprinkler systems and gaseous fire suppression systems.
