Watermist - SIAD Società Italiana Acetilene e Derivati
The water mist system suppresses and extinguishes fire by discharging a water mist generated by water passing through the micro-holes of a nozzle into the environment.
The system requires nitrogen cylinders to serve as a propellant, which avoids added costs from using pumps and electric controlled discharge systems.
Extinguishing the fire is guaranteed both by the cooling action of the water itself and by the radiant power of the fire being blocked and the local inertisation. Water mist extinguishing systems can be used instead of powder and traditional sprinkler systems, with notable savings in water.
