A high-pressure water mist (HPWM) system installed by AQUASYS successfully fulfilled its task and prevented a fire from spreading to the part protected by AQUASYS.
Aware of the existing increased fire risk in waste management companies, an AQUASYS system has been installed 3 years ago at the waste management company in Klagenfurt to avoid a fire flashover. On Sunday, 22.09.2019 fire brigades had to fight a fire near Klagenfurt, which had occurred in one of the waste buoys. Thanks to the HPWM system installed by AQUASYS, the fire could be prevented from spreading to other areas.
In this application, the HPWM system gets activated when the detectors identify a fire. The high-pressure pump system starts and the corresponding section opens. The fine water mist immediately distributes throughout the affected area, quickly removing heat from the source of the fire and also cooling the surroundings. This means that HPWM systems require considerably less water and operate at a much higher level of efficiency than conventional sprinkler systems.
Further HPWM projects to protect waste disposal facilities in Austria are currently in the status of implementation or planning. For each project, AQUASYS has developed an optimized and efficient solution with the Institute for Fire Protection Technology.
