WATER MIST

Watermist works by a combination of heat absorption and oxygen depletion at the heart of the fire and can help to slow the spread of fire by absorbing radiant heat. It is not toxic or corrosive. There's no danger from asphyxiation so it is safe for use in occupied areas.

Watermist is very effective for use on fast flaming hot fires. For example, diesel generators and gas turbines.

However, water and electricity, in any quantity, do not mix. Even when mains power is removed, residual capacitance may still remain and this could be enough to cause damage to critical circuitry.

The results of water and residual capacitance could be as catastrophic as the original fire. So use in electronic data processing applications is not recommended.

A fire within a communications cabinet will not be extinguished unless the watermist nozzles are within the cabinet and aimed at the fire. The same holds true for a fire in a waste paper basked under a desk.

Watermist systems require clean water storage and a pressure generating arrangement ready in anticipation of a discharge. This can be costly and often is no cheaper than a gaseous extinguishing system.

Watermist is a good fire suppressant but only in the right circumstances. To appreciate what these circumstances are, you need to understand how watermist works.
