No material loss

Traditional sprinkler systems cause huge losses

Water, despite being the most popular extinguishing agent, often causes greater losses than the fire itself. The most important here is the method of feeding water to the fire. With traditional sprinkler systems, most of the water is wasted. Only 5-10% of water acts as a extinguishing agent, while the remaining part only contributes to increasing losses after a fire. Water fed in this way will not have time to evaporate, due to the size of the droplets. For maximum efficiency, droplets of the smallest possible diameters should be administered in the form of extinguishing mist.

No material loss

The highest efficiency is achieved with droplets with a diameter of less than 50 μm. The water mist sprayed in this way lasts long enough on the extinguished surface to suppress the fire. In addition, water evaporating takes a huge amount of thermal energy from the fire, causing it to fade. After evaporation, the volume of water increases more than 1700 times, displacing from the air the oxygen necessary for the fire, causing no material losses, or minimizing them. However, this is only true in the case of extinguishing with water mist. The traditional way of feeding water does not provide such an effect. Much of the water, more than 90%, falls to the ground before it can evaporate. The advantage of water mist is the ability to effectively clean the air from smoke, so that the damage caused by smoke is much less than when using systems based on oxygen displacement by CO2.
