What is Water Mist Technology?
The key difference between a water mist suppression system and traditional fire sprinkler system is the size of the water droplets. Water mist consists of droplets with a diameter less than 1,000 microns each which is roughly a fifth of the size of the droplets made by standard fire sprinkler systems.
A traditional fire suppression system combats a fire by drenching the fire and the surrounding area with water thus lowering the heat of the fire and the fuel. A water mist suppression system works in the same way, but due to the smaller size of the droplets, when the tiny droplets comes in contact with hot air they evaporate and turn to steam, which then suffocates the fire. Steam also absorbs more heat per unit of time than larger water droplets, therefore reducing the temperature faster.
