Computer simulation has greatly shortened the path towards the development of ultra fine water mist fire suppression technology for NanoMist Systems, LLC. NanoMist is the trade name for the proprietary process technology of producing, scaling, transporting, and delivering the ultra-fine fine water mist system.
The fire suppression chemical Halon 1301 was banned after it was identified as an ozone-depleting substance and the search for newer and safer fire suppression agents was renewed. Amongst several other clean agents, the non-ozone depleting chemical HFC-227ea is the most popular agent in use today. It has some limitations, however, because of toxic by-products which may often reach harmful levels. It also has a global warming potential. From both an environmental and toxicity point of view, ultra fine water mist is an ideal compound. It may be potential permanent solution for fire suppression technology.
