What is low pressure water misting?

The Autoquench mist is a class 2/3 water mist as defined by NFPA 750. The mist (average drop size of 300 microns) is normally delivered at mains water pressures of 3-8 bar. Our water misting systems are designed for non life safety applications, where a suppression system is required.

The small drop size not only produces a rapid cooling in the fire zone, but also has a significant 'wetting' effect which helps to damp down the area and prevent the spread of fire.
