The system is fast extinguishing with high-volume, high-velocity discharge
which quickly fills spaces. It is also more efficient and uses one-third the water
of comparable high pressure systems. As operating pressure is under 8 bar,
this proves that one does not need high pressure to generate the smallest droplet sizes. This system is listed and approved for the protection of flammable liquid hazards (FM) and extinguished all fire scenarios in the FM Protocol 5580.
It is FM approved for spaces ranging from 4,591 to 36,727 cubic feet
(volumes up to 1,040 cubic metres).

1,000 μm Sprinkler
This system utilizes non-toxic and readily available extinguishing media (water and nitrogen). The AquaMist SONIC twin-fluid technology is safe for people and is environmentally friendly.
It is constructed of industry proven, components including an ASME/
TPED approved stainless steel water storage tank. Capable of automatic detection and actuation and/or remote manual actuation, the system
is installed and serviced by authorized distributors. Just two supersonic atomizers create 1.5 trillion superfine water droplets per second, producing a combined surface area of 121 m2 (1302 ft2). This is equivalent to covering the surface of an Olympic-size soccer field in one minute.
Additionally, the atomizers propel the droplets at high velocity throughout the combustion zone providing rapid fire knock-down. The atomizer is
the key to the effectiveness of the AquaMist Sonic system. Supersonic technology generates a high-velocity, low-pressure zone that draws a thin sheet of water into a primary atomization region. A conical supersonic wave then creates a zone of extreme acceleration and high shear-rate, breaking the sheet into atomized droplets.
• Provides a solution to ventilation
• Facilitates protection of higher height risks
• Can protect highly-obstructed areas
• Protects volumes without the need for power or pump arrangement
