Applications that use fire protection spray nozzles will depend on the type of fire hazards that are common for the workstation. The spray nozzles may cool off platforms, shield equipment from heat and open flames, remove toxic gasses after gas leaks are detected, and provide mist in areas where water-sensitive equipment or processes takes place.
Fire deluge systems will directly apply an enormous amount of water at a high rate directly onto open flames that may be present around equipment, tanks, and applications. These nozzles are designed to put out fires and cool off tanks and platforms immediately.
Water wall fire protection systems create a wall of water as a way to keep open flames away from workers, equipment, and processes. The nozzles spray the water as a shield that the flames cannot pass through while becoming extinguished.
Water mist protection systems have spray nozzles that offer fine mist applications for workstations that may have water-sensitive locations. The mist acts to put out the flame and prevent spread while not creating further damage to assets and other company resources.
Toxic gas mitigation spray nozzles are designed to prevent fires from occurring by filtering the air of toxic gas after a gas leak. The nozzles emit water that passes through the air as the water attaches to the gas as the droplets force the gas downward to the ground.
Offshore fire protection nozzles are designed for oil rigs to spray water or foam on applications, rig decks, and platforms. When a fire occurs, these systems become the first line of protection for workers.
