We recommend the units for all the appliances we sell whether it is a full size Tybe B domestic unit or one of the rapid response units.

Because the only part needed is the branch it represents a massive saving on the cost of fogging systems which require a specific type of pump whereas the FireBug WaterMist branch simply replaces the existing Akron or Delta type units as would normally be installed.

FireBug's - WaterMist is the only method in the world to extinguish all classes of fire using only water and no additives, ensuring a truly environmentally friendly solution.

 

Benefits of Water Mist

What are the Benefits?

  • 100% environmentally friendly and responsible
  • Toxic-free agents for safe fire fighting
  • Designed for most fire risks, A, B, C, D*, E and F
  • Little or no collateral damage after discharge
  • Lower life cycle costs
  • No thermal shock or electrical conductivity resulting from discharge
  • Perfectly safe for use in highly populated locations, around or directly on humans and animals
  • Leaves almost no residue when applied to the fire due to evaporation
  • Safety for the user due to mist barrier / curtain between fire and operator. Small droplets result in heat absorption.
  • Safe on electrics up to 35kV

*Suitable for use on non oxidising D class fires only.

Video Demonstration

We have a growing library of videos which we will in time make available through the site but for now, the most compelling video is the one below which demonstrates (under controlled training conditions) how the Maxi WaterMisting branch (formerly known as the ST15) is used to extinguish a gas flame.

Watch how the fine water droplets of the WaterMist branch easily knocks out the fire (and no, they didn't just turn off the gas) using up to 65% less water than is used in the second example where a standard Akron type branch is used to try unsuccessfully to extinguish the same fire.

  

You can see from the video that straight away the WaterMist branch immediately knocks the flames out.

This test was performed WITHOUT additives i.e. AFFF foam's etc.  ONLY WATER was used in this demonstration.

Demonstration Video's

Below we have provided a couple of demo videos which show how the branch actually works as demonstrated by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue and below that a demonstration of how by using the ST15 MaxiMist Nozzle a car fire which has been allowed a pre-burn time of 5 minutes (to get well alight) can be extinguished in under 2 minutes using WATER ONLY no foam additive.

It further demonstrates how by using the low pressure MaxiMist Nozzle it gives the fire fighter the opportunity to attack the fire within the cabin of the car even if people are trapped in the vehicle.

Applications

The Maxi is a fire fighting nozzle designed to fit all current fire fighting vehicles which can supply a constant 15-20 bar of pressure.

The branch offers 45 litres of water per minute in mist mode, or 150 litres per minute in jet mode making it the ideal choice for Fire & Rescue Services worldwide for many industries and applications including but not limited to:

  • Vehicle fires
  • Compartment fires
  • Building fires
  • Events inc. tents, caravans etc.
  • Medium / large fires such as large skips

Standard quick couplings allow for changing of nozzles in seconds

 

And don't forget the branch when fitted with a standard quick release coupling, can be changed in seconds if required in other words, as long as at least one of these branches is carried on an appliance it can be fitted to suit the incident or to simply conserve the water being carried.

If you have an appliance with a pump that can deliver 15-20 bar of pressure then all you need is the branch...

  • No extra pump needed
  • No additional engine
  • No expensive modifications to the vehicle
  • No special hose lines
