Some alternative quenching systems have been developed for the places where water quenching can not be done today. Extinguishing with water in areas containing paper, paper, etc. where there is a lot of electric charge or damaging water may cause big financial damages and even result in loss of life.
Therefore, an alternative extinguishing system applied in such rooms is Water Mist – Water system extinguishing system.
Water Mist – Despite the use of water as an extinguishing agent, the water system extinguishes at micron level by making the water particles pulverize by means of high pressure pumps and special nozzles. Thus, materials such as paper, electric panels, cables, etc. in the room do not suffer damage when they come into contact with water; in this way the spaces are reliably extinguished.
In areas such as pedestrian and highway tunnels, it can provide more effective results than watery sprinkler systems. For this reason, water system – water mist systems have been preferred in many road tunnels, especially in Europe.
