Industrial Applications Water Mist

Industrial facilities are at risk of large liquid and solid hydrocarbon fires due to multiple machines, chemicals and hot surfaces. These facilities often feature complex structures, process enclosures and areas each with a different risk category and requirement for fire protection.

VID FireKill offers several water mist systems for the protection of applications such as:

  • Internal combustion engines
  • Oil pumps
  • Oil tanks
  • Combustion turbines
  • Fuel filters
  • Generators
  • Transformer vaults
  • Diesel engine driven generators
  • Exposed combustion turbines
  • Biomass storage areas
  • Conveyor belts
  • Lubrication skids
  • Drive shafts
  • Gear boxes

For fire protection of industrial applications several different systems are often needed to protect the location, secure a safe work environment, limit production downtime and maintenance expense after a fire. Most often industrial protection requires either general protection of the entire location, local protection for special machinery, full flooding for hazardous areas or point protection for special machinery.

VID FireKill has developed a series of unique low pressure water mist systems capable of handling each of the above mentioned principles. Depending on the facility structure and risk category each FireKill™ system utilizes specially designed FireKill™  products.

  • FireKill™ K6 is FM approved for total flooding protection of machinery spaces, special hazard machinery spaces, combustion turbines and insulated combustion turbines with volumes up to 4610 m3 (162800 ft3) and ceiling heights up to 12 m (39.37 ft ceiling height).
  • FireKill™ LAK7 system is successfully tested to FM5560:2015 appendix I for protection of various industrial applications with local protection design.
  • FireKill™ Model N-pipe is a low pressure fine water spray deluge system, successfully tested and verified for the protection of many different applications. The N-Pipe is manufactured in different shapes suiting various applications, typically biomass storage, conveyors, wood industry machines etc.

All our products are successfully tested by ISO17025 accredited re test laboratories and 3. party approved by organizations such as FM Approvals and DNV/GL.
