    AquaMist FOG systems reduce the consumption of water and pipe diameters required whilst providing a fast and efficient method of fire protection for class A and B fires.
AquaMist FOG provides outstanding fire suppression protection for turbine and transformer rooms, engine test cells, diesel engines and alternators, paint spray booths and mechanical escalators.
Droplet Sizes
 50 μm FOG
1,000 μm Sprinkler
The system operates at working pressures of 70 to 200 bar to produce droplets of water with small diameters, which discharge at high speeds.
For each different protected hazard, optimized nozzles have been developed and tested. AquaMist FOG is based on principles of well-established hydraulic technology. Spray heads are designed to discharge water in the form of Water Mist, with tiny droplets creating a large effective cooling surface area of the fire and surrounding volume. The high speed of the droplets allows the mist
to penetrate the hot fumes and reach the combustion area quickly. AquaMist FOG systems are available as either a pre-engineered cylinder system or engineered pumped system, and provide a versatile fire protection solution.
AquaMist FOG systems are one of the best options when piping dimensions or pressure losses are critical, for example in applications such as heritage buildings, libraries and archives, where fragile structures require preserving from water damage.
• Ideal when piping dimensions are a problem
• Ideal when pressure losses are critical
• Quick discharge of Water Mist on combustible areas
