Sotec provides Watermist systems specifically for the protection of hazardous areas such as machinery spaces on marine vessels and offshore structures.
These systems are designed to protect areas which include highly volatile hydrocarbons, while using minimal quantities of water. They provide highly-effective, ultra-fast fire suppression without the environmental problems normally associated with gas and chemical systems.
Watermist systems deliver a fine spray of water mist, which is completely harmless to hot metal surfaces, such as the casing of a marine engine. The nozzle combines water and air to produce controlled size water droplets. These droplets are transported into the base of the fire, allowing for rapid extinguishing of large, intense fires with very limited quantities of water.
Sotec represents several manufacturers that provide this type of equipment. Marioff and Danfoss-Semco are two internationally recognized companies that have years of experience in providing these types of systems.
