Fire suppression system
A fire in a truck can put the driver’s life, the truck itself, and valuable goods at risk. It can also cause unwanted downtime.
Chokes the fire quickly. Cooling time at least double compared to other certified systems*.

The system is always ready. No power supply is needed for activation or system monitoring.
Low Total Cost of Ownership through quick and easy maintenance.
Global distributor presence and local knowledge. We offer you certified training for easy installation directly in the factory.
Prevent damage to the truck, people, and surroundings
A fire in a truck engine compartment can lead to several disastrous consequences. It may mean risk for the driver’s life, risk of loss of the truck, as well as unwanted downtime and even loss of valuable goods being transported.
Many trucks operate in environments where a fire could lead to severe risks to the surroundings and people, such as tunnels or underground mines.
Another large number of trucks transport under the ADR, from which the classes EX II, EX III and FL are subject to an immense risk to their surroundings as it could lead to a BLEVE*.

Ideal FIRE suppression technology for a truck engine
Fogmaker takes safety seriously. Fogmaker fire suppression system with high-pressure water mist is an ideal suppression technology for a truck engine, as it operates independently of the vehicles position, horizontally or vertically, as well as independently of electric power. Fogmaker high-pressure water mist also chokes a fire quickly, and offers an evacuation time of at least double that of other certified fire suppression systems. This ensures a superior cooling effect that minimizes the risk of reignition.
The single Ø178 piston accumulator inside compartment is the base of the Fogmaker system and should have a working pressure of 100-105 bar at 20 degrees C.
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.
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.
Light alarm – integrated in manufacturers system, in Fogmaker alarm panel and/or optional light strobe.
Manual actuator (optional) – by mounting an actuator on the detection line the Fogmaker system may deploy by hand – manually.
How it works
Outstanding choking and cooling technology
High-pressure water mist has an outstanding choking and cooling effect. The system is always active – no power supply is needed for activation or system monitoring. Fogmaker has a longer emptying time than many competing systems, and this is critical to prevent reignition.
A SMALL BUT VERY IMPORTANT INVESTMENT
Most truck fires start in the engine compartment. This area typically has large quantities of diesel fuel and hydraulic oil – often under high pressure – and an ignited fire can lead to a rapid and disastrous series of events almost impossible to suppress with a hand-held fire extinguisher. Fogmaker’s system keeps vehicles and drivers safe, in an environmentally friendly way and with a low total cost of ownership. The system has been installed in thousands of trucks around the world.
It is particularly important to protect ADR vehicles and other trucks that transport potentially flammable goods; a fire in a truck that’s moving an explosive or flammable substance can have horrifying consequences. Fogmaker suppresses an engine room fire quickly, and the long release time cools down affected areas and lowers the risk of reignition.
