Extinguishing fires with water fog is a method superior to most alternatives through its efficiency and cleanness. There are different system solutions for water sprinkler systems and water fog is one method. Ultra Fog AB has developed different systems depending on the application in which the system is to be used that are all based on products and components developed and manufactured by Ultra Fog AB.
Both nozzle types are available in models that are to be mounted either with the piping inside a wall or ceiling or on the surface of a wall or ceiling. The nozzles can be coated or painted in almost any material or colour. As standard the nozzles are polished stainless steel.
Nozzles with glass bulb
The nozzle with a bulb is normally closed and is used in systems with conventional activation. In the top of the nozzle there is a glass bulb that keeps a piston in place. The piston prevents the nozzle from leaking. When the nozzle is affected by the heat of the fire, the glass bulb will burst releasing the piston. The water will then pass through the nozzle creating small droplets.
The open nozzle is normally open and is used in systems with intelligent activation. The water will pass through the nozzle creating small droplets as soon as the pipe to the nozzle is pressurized with water.
