Nozzles for fire/explosion prevention systems

These systems are not designed to extinguish fires.   Rather they attempt to reduce the risk of a fire or explosion occurring in the first place.  This can be done by increasing moisture in the air or on a surface to reduce the flammability of the environment.

The information on the important engineering elements to consider when selecting nozzles for use in fire prevention systems can be accessed by the blue menu to the right hand side of this page.  The grey menu gives access to information on each of the nozzle design types that might be appropriate.  All the information in this Fire Prevention applications section of the SNP website is summarised in the Fire/Explosion protections systems cheat sheet, which is accessible by clicking on the orange button also to the right hand side of this page.
