 Water Mist Technology 


Presenter:  Lorraine Smith, Marioff North America

In this month’s presentation we will take a look at how high pressure watermist fire protection works and what key attributes it consists.

Key takeaways of the presentation will include:

  • ·       Water is discharged only to the area of fire, not the entire data hall subsequently preventing flooding of the premises.
  • ·       Understanding of relevant codes and standards.
  • ·       High pressure watermist uses significantly less water compared to traditional sprinkler systems.
  • ·       Cooling is also more efficient in comparison to traditional sprinklers or low pressure water mist systems.
  • ·       Water mist can provide total protection for all spaces within the data center building envelope.
  • ·       Water mist fire protection can also be used in office areas where personnel are located. And water mist offers an excellent choice in fighting fir in technical areas with back-up generators, transformers and UPS’s.
  • ·       Any expansions of the site can be done easily and efficiently just by adding pipes, valves and high pressure/thermally operated sprinkler heads to new areas supported by the original pump-set. This scalability is especially beneficial in data centers that are built in phases.
