Where would I use the FOGMAKER system?

FOGMAKER’s fire suppression system using high pressure water mist is very efficient for extinguishing fires in closed and semi-closed engine compartments of industrial vehicles, machines and equipment. Our system has proven its reliability and durability for the demanding environments of mines, marine, military, forestry, genset and ports.

The water mist immediately chokes the fire and quickly cools the protected area. A unique feature of water mist is that it flooding the entire engine compartment and accesses fires positioned outside the direct spreading area of the nozzles.

The water mist’s ability to quickly extinguish the fire limits the amount of damage in the engine compartment. With our hydro pneumatic fire detection, the detection and suppression system works even when the electricity supply is disconnected. The system efficacy is independent of machine orientation, so should the vehicle or vessel be involved in an accident and is on its side or up-side-down, the system is still effective.

Fire re-ignition is prevented cooling the compartment and hot surfaces to below the re-gnition point of the fuel and by the adding of a small amount of foam to the water mist which forms choking blanket and preventing the fuel from being available to combust. The extinguishing fluid that is generated from the water mist is environment friendly and it is easy to wash away. Re-setting and cleaning up of a discharged suppression system is often simpler, easier, faster and thus often cheaper compared with traditional powder or foam suppression systems.
