Fogmaker is the first fire suppression system to hold the type approval certificate with regard to UNECE Regulation No. 107 (regulation for buses and coaches in Europe).
Fogmaker manufactures and distributes fire suppression systems
with high pressure water mist for engine compartments.
Fogmaker is the market leader in Europe, the Middle East and Australia
for automated fire suppression systems in Buses,
with installations in more than 50 countries since 1995.
Fogmaker Triple Action3
- Fogmaker cools the fire – through the formation of water vapor from high pressure water mist, which absorbs energy.
- Fogmaker smothers the fire – through the formation of water vapor, which displaces oxygen.
- Fogmaker prevents re-ignition – through the foam additive, which settles as a protective film over combustible material.
Installed units during 2016
The piston accumulator (1) filled with extinguishant and nitrogen and pressurized to 100-105 bar is connected to a distribution system consisting of: distribution hose(s), distribution pipes and Fogmaker’s patented high pressure water mist nozzles (2).The detector bottle (3) filled with detector liquid and nitrogen, pressurized to 24 bar is connected to a polymer detector tube (4).The piston accumulator and the detector bottle are inter-linked via a patented release valve (5) that keeps the piston accumulator closed if the pressure in the detection system is normal.
If there is a fire – the detector tube bursts (6), the pressure falls in the detection system and the valve on the piston accumulator releases. As the system deploys, the pressure switch warns the driver through the alarm system (7). The extinguishant is pressed through the distribution system’s nozzles and a high pressure water mist is spread throughout the protected volume (8).
Absorbs heat: 1 liter of high pressure water mist is converted into 1700 liters of water vapor by consuming 540 000 kilocalories.
LET US SHOW YOU OUR SYSTEM’S EFFECTIVENESS
“LKAB iron ore mine has worked systematically with fire vehicles protection over the last 10 years… The functionality and reliability of Fogmaker made us keep to it. …Fogmaker shown a willingness to drive development forward… Besides function have also the cost aspects been of importance, for which Fogmaker proved to be far ahead over competitors…”
Section Manager Fire, LKAB, Kiruna, Sweden
“Fogmaker system have been our preferred option for the last 10 years. Over that time they have proven to be an extremely robust and reliable product. The compact nature and versatility of the Fogmaker system means lower install cost, less ongoing maintenance and has significant advantages across many equipment models and applications”.
NSW Business Unit Manager, Westrac Caterpillar, Australia
“The Bloomfield Group has been utilising the Fogmaker fire suppression system on large mobile earthmoving equipment for several years. Due to Fogmaker weight and suitable machine mounting positions, the compact design has proven to be a sound fire suppression option. We have found the Fogmaker system to be a reliable, low maintenance cost and simple system that provides us comfort that our assets are protected from the potential of fire.”
