Water Mist Systems
A water mist system is similar to a sprinkler system except that it utilises fine water sprays (‘water mist’). The smaller water droplets create a fine mist to cool the flame and released gases as well as displacing oxygen. The smaller droplets themselves assist in reducing the temperature in area.
Water mist systems use in fire suppression depends on a number of factors, including droplet size and distribution and on the desired performance and protection requirements.
