Low-pressure water mist is the logical successor to sprinkler or high-pressure water mist systems. It requires a minimum of power and water, it offers ease of installation, and it benefits from the use of standard components.
The feature of FlexiFOG® water mist system is the advanced technology producing a mixture of small droplets in combination with mist, when activated. This ensures a quicker and more reliable suppression of fires in accommodation areas than any other system can offer.
FlexiFOG® water mist fire suppression system can protect accommodation, service areas and machinery spaces (total flooding and local protection) with one single pump package.
FlexiFOG® water mist systems are cost effective both when it comes to purchase and installation. Compared to traditional sprinkler systems, FlexiFOG® offers significant advantages, for instance:
- Low water consumption
- Low piping weight, PN10 and PN16
- Reduced risk of clogging
- Low power consumption
- Higher reliability
- Low profile – flush mounting and colour adaptation to surroundings (for accommodation spaces only)
FlexiFOG® water mist systems are type approved by all major classification societies and hold wheel mark certificates, and can be supplied in compliance with Safe Return to Port requirements.
Critical design parameters
Weight and power consumption are always critical design parameters, and has been one of the key parameters when developing the nozzles. The design on a medium sized ferry with approximately 1500 nozzles, enables a weight reduction of approx. 2 tons and the required power output is reduced with approximately 30 kW. This means that the emergency generator can be smaller, reducing cost and fuel consumption.
