What is Dry Water Mist?
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!
Innovative Dry Water Mist Technology
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.
Broad-Spectrum Extinguisher Capabilities
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.
Completely Safe to use on 35kV
Dielectrically tested with 35000 Volt. Therefore the E-series extinguishers are completely safe on live electrical equipment (max 1000V at 1m).
The water droplets created by the extinguishers are so small that electricity cannot travel through them. In addition, our water mist extinguishers contain only de-ionised water which cannot carry electrical current.
Approvals and Testing
The Jewel E-series is produced using a BAFE approved manufacturing process and has been tested to the highest standards achieving a CE mark and Kitemarked to BS EN3 certification. The E-series extinguishers have proven themselves on live fires in some rigorous tests, take a look at the extinguishers in action on some of our videos.
The E-Series extinguishers are 100% recyclable. Using only water, it is safe to both discharge on a fire and also when testing or servicing. The use of only water also means that actually discharging the extinguisher on a fire is not harmful to others, unlike CO2 and powder units. When an E-series extinguisher comes to the end of its life, all of the components can be recycled or disposed of with 0% damage to the environment!
