Efficient fire extinguishing with minimal water damage

To increase efficiency and minimize water damage and risk of flooding, high-pressure water mist fire fighting have become a safe choice when choosing a fire fighting system.

High-pressure water mist systems provide better fire suppression as well as better protection of personnel and surroundings by minimizing the potential water damage as significantly less water is used.

By applying high-pressure fire fighting systems water is forced through micro nozzles at very high pressure to create a water mist that effectively combats fire.

The high-pressure extinguishing gives maximum protection by cooling through heat absorption and inerting the fire when the water expands through evaporation.

The Danfoss PAH pumps are ideal for high-pressure water mist systems with a flow capacity up to 187 l/min (49.4 gpm). The pumps are designed for tap water at pressures up to 160 barg (2,321 psig). The pumps can be used with high-pressure components, valves, nozzles etc from the Danfoss product portfolio to form a complete solution with high reliability and long service life.

Fight fire and protect people and assets with high-pressure water mist

Speed, efficiency and reliability of firefighting equipment can mean the difference between life and death when a fire breaks out. The question is – how do you protect your building, tunnel, station, vessel or historical monument in the best possible way in case of fire?

Among several options like traditional sprinkler systems and CO₂/gas systems, water misting is emerging as one of the most efficient and least damaging firefighting technologies.

Discover some of the benefits of high-pressure water misting:

  • Absorbs heat efficiently, using less water
  • Protects structures and reduces damages caused by water
  • Suppresses toxic gasses, protecting people and animals
  • Blocks heat radiation, protecting fire fighters

Fight fire on ships and  offshore installations

Fight fire on ships and offshore installations

Seconds count when fire breaks out at sea. Far from fire brigades, people onboard ships and platforms rely on safe and efficient firefighting equipment to put out the fire as fast as possible.

Water mist is the most effective firefighting strategy offshore.  With PAH pumps from Danfoss, the water mist solution ensures:

  • Immediate activation
  • Fast and efficient extinguishing that cools and removes oxygen at the same time
  • Protection of firefighting personnel by reducing heat radiation
  • Less water usage, reducing damages and subsequent downtime
  • Compact and lightweight pumps, easy to fit in when space is limited
Protect people and building assets most effectively in case of fire
