Fog Fire Fighting
Water is an outstanding fire suppression agent due to its high heat capacity and latent heat of vaporization. The FogFireFighting system uses a nozzle ring to create droplets of an appropriate size and a large fan to deliver that to the base of the fire. The simple theory behind using mist for Fire Fighting is that a large number of small droplets have a greater surface area than the same volume of large droplets, therefore absorbing more heat.
Water mist systems extinguish fires using the following basic principles:
Cooling - As the mist is converted into vapor it removes heat from the fire source.
Inerting - As the water mist turns to steam it expands approximately 1700 times, forcing oxygen away from the flame front, thus denying it the oxygen necessary to support combustion.
Wetting - Wetting of the surface helps extinguish the fire as well as contain it.
FogFireFighting are designed and have been tested for use in protecting flammable liquids (Class B), ordinary combustible (Class A) materials.
