What are Water Mist Systems?
Whenever there is a fire, the first and foremost thought that appears in one’s mind is to use water to douse it. Water mist systems are an improved way of how water is used to douse the fire. Water mist systems uses fine droplets to extinguish the fire by cooling it down. The cooling effect of water mist will be anywhere around 6 to 7 times than that of traditional water sprinkler systems.

For any fire to occur the minimum ingredients are Oxygen, Heat and Fuel. It is also called the fire triangle.
The removal of any of these three components will extinguish the fire. The water mist system extinguishes the fire by neutralizing heat and oxygen, hence it results in quicker firefighting.
The efficiency of a water mist system in fire suppression depends on its spray properties, like droplet size distribution, flux density and spray dynamics, with respect to the fire scenario, such as the shielding of the fuel, fire size and ventilation conditions.

Water mist system has the below advantages as compared to traditional sprinkler system or gaseous systems
  • It has a very quick response
  • Water damage to the subject of fire is minimized
  • Not toxic
  • Environmentally safe
  • Highly efficient to suppress a wide variety of fires
