A complete engineered solution including pumps, valves, discharge nozzles, pipes and fittings, all designed to function as one dedicated fire protection system.
The system operates at working pressures of 7 to 12 bar (101.5-174.0 psi), producing droplets of water through a range of nozzles, specifically engineered and approved for a variety of fire hazards. AquaMist ULF systems are supplied through authorized partners.
The AquaMist ULF training modules provide complete design, technical, commercial and lifecycle knowledge. Authorized partners are fully supported by technical services team and all Fire Protection Products are manufactured to the highest quality.
Benefits of a low pressure Water Mist system include lower water demands, translating into lower pressure losses, smaller diameter pipes and lower installation costs when compared to traditional sprinkler systems. As the system uses only water without additives, it produces no adverse environmental impact.
AquaMist SONIC Solution
This system utilizes non-toxic and readily available extinguishing media (water and nitrogen). The AquaMist SONIC twin-fluid technology is safe for people and is environmentally-friendly.
It is constructed of industry proven, components including an ASME/ TPED approved stainless steel water storage tank. Capable of automatic detection and actuation and/or remote manual actuation, the system is installed and serviced by authorized distributors. Just two supersonic atomizers create 1.5 trillion superfine water droplets per second, producing a combined surface area of 121 m2 (1302 ft2). This is equivalent to covering the surface of an Olympic-size soccer field in one minute.
Additionally, the atomizers propel the droplets at high velocity throughout the combustion zone providing rapid fire knock-down. The atomizer is the key to the effectiveness of the AquaMist Sonic system. Supersonic technology generates a high-velocity, low-pressure zone that draws a thin sheet of water into a primary atomization region. A conical supersonic wave then creates a zone of extreme acceleration and high shear-rate, breaking the sheet into atomized droplets.
AquaMist FOG Solution
AquaMist FOG systems reduce the consumption of water and pipe diameters required whilst providing a fast and efficient method of fire protection for class A and B fires.
AquaMist FOG provides outstanding fire suppression protection for Turbine and Transformer rooms, Engine Test Cells, Diesel Engines and Alternators, Paint Spray Booths and Mechanical Escalators. The system operates at working pressures of 70 to 200 bar to produce droplets of small diameters at high speed. For each different protected hazard, optimized nozzles have been developed and tested. AquaMist FOG is based on principles of well-established hydraulic technology.
Spray heads are designed to discharge water in the form of Water Mist, with tiny drops creating a large effective cooling surface area of the fire and surrounding volume. The high speed of the droplets means that the mist can penetrate the hot fumes and reach the combustion area quickly AquaMist FOG systems are available as either pre-engineered cylinder system, or engineered pumped system, AquaMist FOG provides a versatile fire protection solution.
AquaMist FOG systems are one of the best options when piping dimensions or pressure losses are critical, for example in applications such as older heritage buildings or libraries and archives, where fragile infrastructure needs specialist care and attention.
