In its most basic terms, dry water mist is water in a super fine spray which is discharged from the extinguishers to form a mist curtain. Water mist uses 100% de-ionised water but has more fire fighting capabilities than powder, foam and wet chemical extinguishers!
The dry water mist technology used by the E-series extinguishers allows them to produce over 22 billion water droplets from only 1 litre of water. The droplets are as small as 25 microns in diameter and create an ultra fine mist which has superior fire fighting capabilities. The patented nozzle creates water droplets unlike any other extinguisher, producing mist that leaves almost no trace and no collateral damage.
The E-series fire extinguishers are capable of tackling almost all common fires including class A, B, C, F and electrical fires. The unique water mist has the normal cooling effects of water and creates a "mist curtain" cutting off the oxygen supply. The droplets are so small that they have no adverse reaction with burning liquids allowing the E-series to be used on class B and F fires.
Dry water mist extinguishers can be used safely on fires in kitchen, including fat fires, on burning office equipment, clothing, soft furnishing, petrol, paper, gas flames, wood and many more types of fire.
