Fire suppression system
An electric vehicle offers the removal of liquid fuels and the hot surfaces associated with internal combustion engines, but other fire initiators remain.
Water mist for EV
Water mist is the most efficient FSS for EV, according to research.
Safe for use in EV
Fogmaker’s water mist will not penetrate IP classification IP66 or higher.
Easy to clean
After an activation of the system, simply rinse well with pure water.
Secure the fire safety of your electrical vehicle
The evolution of electromobility is moving faster and faster. An electric powertrain offers the removal of liquid fuels and the hot surfaces associated with internal combustion engines. Nevertheless, other fire initiators remain, like heaters, A/C-compressors, hydraulic fluids, 12/24-volt systems and flammable materials such as insulation and interior textiles. Also, the early stage of standardization permit the variety of installation designs to add further unknown risks. Hence, equipping electrified vehicles with a high-performance Fire Suppression System (FSS) such as Fogmaker’s, contributes greatly to the fire safety of your vehicle.
Pinpoint known and suspected fire initiators
Fogmaker’s high-performance water mist system is ideal to protect common fire initiators. The Fogmaker system can be used to pinpoint known and suspected fire initiators, but can also be used to thermally shield and cool the exterior of a battery pack in an electric vehicle, to prevent fire from spreading towards the battery pack, or knock down flames and give extra time for evacuation.
The piston accumulator is the base of the Fogmaker system. and should have a working pressure of 100-105 bar at 20 degrees C.
Different risks may be identified on different buses. The Fogmaker system may be installed to protect A/C components on the roof or pneumatic components in the front.
The distribution system consists of distribution hoses, pipes, fittings, and spray nozzles. The system distributes the suppression liquid from the piston accumulator out into the fire-protected area.
Different risks may be identified on different buses. The Fogmaker system may be installed to protect A/C components on the roof or Pneumatic components in the front.
Mini fire suppression system – a separate system that may be installed in volumes smaller than 0.8m3, in this case a pre-heater.
The detector bottle is the base for the detection system and the pressurized detection tube. This bottle is checked with every annual inspection to ensure correct pressure and functionality.
Fire and fault alarm signals – a constant alarm signal equals fire! An alarm signal every 60 seconds equals a fault alarm, it could be a sign of a broken cable, faulty pressure switch/signal module, leakage/low pressure etc.
How it works
Outstanding choking and cooling technique
High-pressure water mist has an outstanding choking and cooling effect. They system is always active – no power supply is needed for activation or system monitoring. Fogmaker has a longer emptying time than many competing systems, which can be critical to prevent reignition.
Safe for use in most electric environments
Water mist cannot conduct electricity in the range of voltage found in automotive applications. This is assured by the micro-sized droplets of water mist and insulating air in between those droplets. Fogmaker’s water mist will not penetrate IP classification IP66 or higher, making it safe for use in most electric environments.
