OFF ROAD 8x4 description eng


Firefighting  water mist technology has developed rapidly the last ten years, with the phase-out of Halon for fire suppression as one of the main driving forces. As a result of the development of Water Mist Fire Suppression technology, based on Wien conference 2001, new fields of application have also emerged. In addition to replacement of Halon gases, water mist is now applied as an alternative to inert gas systems and as a replacement for sprinkler systems. At present, the general trend is that a new application of water mist needs to be tested in a set-up similar to the practical situation where it is to be used. In parallel to the manufacturers testing efforts, test institutions and researchers world-wide focus on more general questions regarding the effect of water mist in interaction with fire, and standardization committees work with new standards and test methods for different applications. The general trend in fire science, with focus on scenario based design and fire safety engineering, leads to the need for documented calculation methods and engineering practice. This paper sums up the state-of-the-art regarding research and documentation into the field of mobile water mist technology, and points out the most innovative relase:
