WATER MIST FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM
WHAT IS THE FOG FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM?
The FOGFIREFIGHTING system is a high pressure mist firefighting system designed to make the most of suppression of fires with the lowest possible water level.
Long range (up to 475 m) for forest fire suppression, in buildings or chemical storage tanks where fires can take weeks.
Ability to cover areas of thousands of square meters.
Over 22 years of combined experience in this Swiss-made industry, we have the level of engineering expertise to design and the right system for any application.
FOGFIRETRUCK - OPERATING PRINCIPLES
Water mist systems extinguish fires using the following basic principles:
Cooling - Water atomization generates a massive surface reaction area and therefore results in extremely efficient cooling. As the mist is converted to steam, it removes heat from the fire source quickly and effectively.
Making Inert- Rapid vaporization of water droplets draws energy from the fire. Water vapor, which is 1640 times larger than liquid water, displaces oxygen from the source of the fire, thus creating a choking effect similar to an extinguishing gas, dispersing the oxidizer.
Humidify - Especially for Class A fires, wetting the surface helps extinguish and contain the fire.
Reduce Smoke - Great damage to people in fires comes from the smoke and gases released and not from the fire itself.
The 'MicroMist' system employs a specific nozzle that provides excellent fire suppression performance and is designed and tested for use in the protection of common combustible materials (Class A) and flammable liquids (Class B).
Droplet Size: The smaller the droplet size the more assertive the suppression of fires. 500 psi max is best suited for all fires and for resulting air pollution and dust.
Each nozzle flows approximately 8 liters per minute of water at 310 psi (21 Bar). A single FogFireFighting system is capable of protecting 260 m3 areas with a maximum ceiling height of 4.9 m.
Systems are NFPA 750 pressure defined, standard for low, medium and high pressure systems. Low pressure systems operate at the same pressures as sprinkler systems operate, average between 175 psi and 500 psi and high at 500 psi and above. The highest pressure water mist system we have created is about 2,300 psi.
Stainless steel nozzle and tubing. Particulate matter in piping systems is harmful to nozzles, so the system is added with filters that prevent all particles up to 5 microns or double filter up to 1 micron. Replace every 12 months or when visibly dirty.
Additionally AFFF or F500 additives may be added.
The FogFireFighting system is offered in 267 and 423 liter configurations. Each system package is skid mounted and includes all valves and actuation components required for system operation.
System nozzles are ordered separately. Each FogFireFighting package is pre-assembled and tested to ensure system reliability and simplify ease of installation.
