GRP MISTING TANKS 

Nicholson Plastics offer a wide selection of water storage solutions including fire suppression and misting tanks.

MISTING SYSTEMS:

Misting systems use high-pressure mist to remove two of the three elements which are needed for a fire to spread and grow oxygen & heat. A water mist system uses very fine water spray which when actioned in a fire controls, suppresses and/or extinguishes the fire by cooling both the flame and surrounding gases by evaporation.

Misting systems use specially designed nozzles with high water pressure to create a mist which acts similar to a gaseous fire pretention system.

 HOW DO MISTING SYSTEMS WORK? 

The cooling power of Mist Systems is based on the process of atomizing water droplets to a size that can quickly evaporate. Water is forced through a specially designed high-pressure nozzle to create an ultra-fine fog that quickly absorbs heat and cools surrounding air as it evaporates.

THE BENEFITS OF MISTING SYSTEMS INCLUDE:

  • The mist can extinguish a fire in shielded and obstructed locations.
  • The larger the surface area, the more effective the system becomes in quickly reducing temperature and oxygen at the flame front.
  • Immediate activation
  • High efficiency in the suppression of a wide variety of fires
  • Minimized water damage
  • Environmentally sound characteristics
  • No toxic problems

MISTING TANK OPTIONS:

  • Tank dividers (across or along) may be provided to ensure a constant supply of water while cleaning the second chamber in the tank
  • GRP internal ladder
  • Protective hand-railing for around the perimeter of the tank or around the perimeter of the manhole
  • May be supplied with internally flanged or externally flanged panels

Misting systems are an extremely effective fire protection medium that significantly reduces asset damage and operational downtime in all business-critical applications.
