Watermist fire protection
What is it
What is watermist and how does it work?
How does it work
Watermist fights fire in different ways including cooling the flames and surrounding gasses through evaporation, displacing oxygen by evaporation, diminishing radiant heat, and by wetting the fire.
The benefits of watermist
Watermist systems are cost-effective. The systems are easier and cheaper to install and maintain than traditional sprinkler systems. This is due to watermist systems can be designed with smaller components and smaller diameter pipes. The water storage tanks for watermist systems are smaller than those required for traditional sprinklers, and therefore, require less storage space. In case of facility expansion, the watermist systems can be easily retrofitted and extended.
Tests and approvals
The fire testing must be performed in an ISO 17025 accredited test laboratory and should be witnessed by a notified body or an AHJ.
