What are the benefits of low pressure water misting in bin room fire systems?
Low pressure water misting systems supplied by Autoquench operate at working pressures between 3 and 10 bar. Based on mains water or pumped water, a fine water mist is produced in the particle size range 250-500 microns. This size range achieves a great 'wetting' effect to both quench the fire and to prevent the fire from spreading within the bin.
The AQ2000 system developed by Autoquench is an 'intelligent' fire protection system that utilises microprosessor technology to detect and spray water onto the hazard at a very early stage in order to prevent the fire from establishing itself.
