The event of a fire in an engine compartment is often fast and difficult to suppress with only a hand extinguisher. Since 1995, Fogmaker International has manufactured fire suppression systems that use water mist to cool engine compartments of machinery and commercial transportation.
- Water mist provides a unique extinguishing performance; not only does it cool the fire, it also deprives it of oxygen.
- Quick and effective suppression of fires with water mist limits the amount of damage expensive vehicles may sustain.
- A small amount of foam additive simultaneously and effectively prevents the fire from reigniting by creating a blanket around the entire engine compartment.
- The extinguishing fluid that is generated from the water mist is environment friendly and it is easy to wash away.
With the hydro pneumatic fire detection, the suppression system works with the same effect even when the electric supply is disconnected and won’t be affected by its positioning. Even if the machine is upside-down or lying on its side, it will still discharge with the same effectiveness.
The installation of a small, one cylinder Fogmaker suppression system is normally completed in less than one working day, and resetting and recharging a released suppression system can be performed in the field.
This very reliable high-pressure suppression system has been designed for specialized vehicles in demanding environments, including vehicles like buses, forestry equipment, loading or shipping machines, and contractor machinery.
