THE SELF CONTAINED FIRE PROTECTION ALTERNATIVE
Fike’s MicroMist system is a self contained, single fluid, pre-engineered watermist fire suppression alternative to many traditional fire protection methods. MicroMist has demonstrated excellent performance in the suppression of a wide range of flammable liquid (Class B) fire scenarios including pools of fuel leakage, fuel sprays and potential Class A involvement of fuel soaked materials.
MICROMIST – THE COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION
As a safe alternative to traditional fire protection methods, Fike’s MicroMist is a water-based, non-toxic, environmentally friendly fire extinguishing system. Designed and manufactured to be self contained, MicroMist has an excellent track record with special hazard
applications. And since it utilizes water as the suppressant agent, MicroMist is cost-effective and environmentally sound. MicroMist offers superior quality that protects your assets, the environment…and your budget!
HOW DOES MICROMIST WORK?
- Cooling at the flame level by droplet vaporization (heat absorption)
- Oxygen displacement by steam generation (localized inert environment)
- Wetting/direct impingement
- Washing out of combustion products
The Fike MicroMist system utilizes a nozzle design that shears the water into small droplets. These small droplets are very effective in producing water vapor, when they come in contact with the fire. Water vapor is a key component in suppressing a fire with a limited amount of water.
