Water Mist Fire Extinguishers and Systems

A water mist fire extinguishers and systems are the best solution where ecological concerns and regulations about the disposal and environmental impact are the critical concerns, especially those where business continuity is vital.


Water mist as an effective extinguishing agent

Water mist fire extinguishers or systems discharge clean, deionised water through unique spray nozzles in microscopic particle spray that forms a mist curtain that is non-conductive and non-toxic. The fine mist particles blanket the oxygen feeding the fire and provide the cooling effect, extinguishing the fire. Water droplets can cool and smother a fire without causing damage to the covered region or its contents because they are so little.

Many applications that employ water mist are searching for a different way to deal with fires than typical fire suppression systems. Water mist systems utilise 70% to 90% less water than a traditional sprinkler system, leave no residue, and do not cause water damage.


Working Principle

Clean, deionised water is used in these extinguishers, which is non-toxic and non-conductive. When the device is turned on, water is released in minute particles using a special spray nozzle. The resultant water particles cool the area and displace enough oxygen to put out a fire, but not to the point where it is harmful to the inhabitants. Since the droplets are so tiny, water mist systems are safe for data centres, switchgear rooms, generator enclosures, museums, rare book libraries, and archive storage facilities.


Benefits of Water Mist Extinguishers and Systems

  • No residue and water damage
  • Less water consumption
  • It may be used on a wide range of flames and applications.
  • Non-toxic, non-conductive, and safe to use in occupied areas
  • Environmentally friendly

Suitability on Fire Hazards and Applications

Water mist systems or fire extinguishers are effective at fighting a wide variety of fires. It provides a clean, effective, and safe option to use on Class A, B, F, and electrically induced fires. The resulting water droplets are so small that, they leave almost no trace, making water mist extinguishers a safe option for electronic/electrical equipment, books, etc.

Water mist fire extinguishers and systems are a great solution for many applications such as,

• Hospitals / Clean Rooms

• Server / Electrical Room

• Data Centers

• Switchgear Rooms

• Generator Enclosures

• Museums, Historic Buildings, Archive Libraries
