Bristol unveils low pressure ‘water mist’

The distinguishing feature of Bristol’s dual fluid technology is its ability to atomise liquids into extremely small droplets and carry them on an air stream. By adjusting nozzle design, water volume and air pressure parameters can be controlled



Bristol, the Dubai-based leader in fire protection services and equipment, has unveiled the Low-Pressure Water Mist Fire Suppression System at the Intersec exhibition and conference in Dubai.

An innovative new system that not only quickly and accurately extinguishes flames but also protects the surrounding environment from water damage, the ‘mist’ system was showcased to leaders of the security and safety industry at the annual Intersec event, which took place from the January 21 to 23 at the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena.

The distinguishing feature of Bristol’s dual fluid, low pressure technology is its ability to atomise liquids into extremely small droplets and carry them on an air stream. By adjusting nozzle design, water volume and air pressure parameters, qualities of the mists it generates can be controlled. This unique flexibility allows for creating optimal mist solutions for a broad range of applications.

The system atomises water at very low pressure, and this provides several advantages over high pressure technologies as it is relatively low cost and allows the technology to be deployed as a portable hose reel device.

Delicate and non-toxic, the Low-Pressure Water Mist Fire Suppression System can also be used to ‘envelope’ a person threatened by fire to allow firefighting personnel to secure and rescue them while tackling a blaze.

Many industries will benefit from the application of optimal mist to tackle fires while leaving water sensitive infrastructure undamaged such as chemical, computer, construction, defense, energy, manufacturing and mining industries.

Held each year in Dubai, Intersec attracts more than 1,300 exhibitors and over 30,000 visitors. The largest exhibition and international trade event for the security and safety industry, Intersec is the ideal platform to showcase its new products and technologies.Mahmoud Awad, managing director of Bristol, commented: "The Low-Pressure Water Mist Fire Suppression System represents a really exciting step towards our commitment to breaking ground in the industry of fire protection as we believe that using water as a universal agent for fighting fires is the future.

Not only is the system a revolutionary step forward in the way fires can be tackled and safely extinguished, it’s a very versatile, operator- and environmentally-friendly system.

"We are sure that the Bristol system’s ‘dry’ mist will impress the industry leaders and government heads as an alternative to traditional, water or chemical based firefighting techniques."

Alongside the Bristol Low Pressure Water Mist system, the firm also presented two new product launches from Bristol’s vehicles manufacturing division.

The ‘Mobile Ambulance Vehicle’ with the drives straight into the future with new generation of keypads control panels strategically placed for easy and safe access and fire-retardant materials utilization for extreme fire hazard and safety during all kind of operations.
