WHAT IS WATER MIST SYSTEM
Water mist systems are systems which can be effectively used as an alternative to carbon dioxide systems, these carbon dioxide systems can be dangerous to civilians. Water Mist Systems with low pressure, medium pressure, and high pressure systems are available. water mist systems can be used to replace old sprinkler systems creating a fog to suppress fire. Here in this water mist systems works by converting the water into steam instead of only water in old sprinklers.These type of water mist system is mostly used in areas where there is a water damage or areas where water supplies are restricted.
We supply and install water mist systems and Dubai and in other Emirates of UAE. We also do the maintenance of water mist system in UAE

Working of Water Mist System
Water mist systems works with the same functionality as dry pipe, deluge, pre-action or wet pipe systems. The difference in other systems and water mist system is that water mist system uses a compressed gas to reduce water into smaller or tiny particles, which is pumped through the sprinkler pipe. Some systems use a high-pressure pump to pressurize the water instead of compressed gas, so it reduces into tiny particles as it exits the sprinkler nozzle. Water Mist Systems are define din different types in their standard, they are low pressure systems, intermediate pressure systems, and high pressure systems. So low pressure systems will do their operation at a pressure as same as the pressures that sprinkler systems will operate.
Intermediate system operates at pressure varying between 175 psi and 500 psi, and then high pressure systems operates at pressure varying between, 500 psi and more.Now, differences are in terms of droplet sizes that they produce, usually as as water droplet size decreases the system is better at extinguishing a fire risk.
Low Pressure Water Mist Systems
Low Pressure Water Mist systems are those where the water piping is under pressures varying from 12.1 bar (175 psi)or less. The mean droplet size and flow rates and are generally higher when compared with intermediate pressure or high pressure Water Mist systems.
These Water Mist systems are quite economical because these systems are usually installed along with conventional sprinkler alarm valve, however the applications of Water Mist systems are limited when it comes to Intermediate and High Pressure Water Mist systems in. terms of extinguishing efficiency.
Intermediate Pressure Water Mist System
Intermediate Pressure Water Mist systems are those where the water piping is under pressures varying from greater than 12.1 bar (175 psi) but less than 34.5 bar (500 psi). The most known examples of Intermediate Pressure Water Mist System are skidded, self-contained units, that have water contained at atmospheric pressure and nitrogen cylinders with high pressure to provide the propellant to discharge the water. In Intermediate Pressure Water Mist Systems Mean droplet sizes are tend to be larger than that for high pressure water mist systems. Application of Intermediate Pressure Water Mist systems include hydraulic pump rooms,machinery spaces, turbine enclosures etc.
High Pressure Water Mist System
High Pressure Water Mist systems are those where the water piping is under pressures varying from 34.5 bar (500 psi) or greater. Water supply pressure to High Pressure Water Mist systems can be supplied by a high pressure pump(120 bar) connected to a continuous water supply or tank by high pressure nitrogen cylinders operating a number of separate water containers. Mean droplet sizes of these High Pressure Water Mist System are usually 100-200µ (micron) in diameter
Why water Mist System in your building
We see water mist system installation in Dubai, UAE is growing because of these reasons:
It’s a safe when compared to total flood carbon dioxide systems.That’s one of the main reasons to use it. We see a lot of companies and organizations, if they have an option between carbon dioxide and water mist,and they actually care about the safety of their life and commodities, water mist system is going to be their first selected option. We even see companies and organizations with existing total flood CO2 systems are replacing them with water mist. It’s water-efficient alternative to traditional sprinklers. So we can use a water mist system.At Blue Flame Firefighting, we could replace the conventional sprinkler system with a water mist sprinkler system with an affordable package.
