INCREASED DEMANDS on reduced noise and emission of exhaust gases have lead to enclosed
and more insulated engine compartments, higher fuel pressure a which increases engine
Most fires start in the engine compartment. A well-developed fire in an engine compartment often
has a very intensive course of event and is impossible to fight with a hand extinguisher.
The solution is a installed and fully automatic suppression system –
Since 1995 Fogmaker International AB has been developing, manufacturing and marketing fire suppression systems for engine compartments with high pressure water mist. Our fire suppression system has a unique extinguishing performance as it both cools down and smothers the fire, at the same time as the foam additive effectively prevent the fire from reigniting.
Fogmaker is the market leader in Europe, the Middle East and Australia for automated fire suppression systems in Buses, with installations in more than 170000 systems in 50 countries since 1995.
Fogmaker became the first manufacturer to implement the official tests with successful results in October 2016. Fogmaker has also made the first fire suppression system available that has the type approval – UNECE Regulation No.107 Cert. No. 06001 (2017-01-18).
Fogmaker has the following certifications and approvals:
FOGMAKER has developed a method that suppresses
with the help of three basic mechanisms
Water mist under high pressure is a much superior extinguishing technique in engine compartments. The high pressure in combination with special nozzles creates microdrops with an average size of 50 μm. As a comparison, 8 000 of these drops are equal to a drop with a diameter of 1 mm! See how this method works here.
Extinguisher test in a simulated engine compartment with a volume of 3 m3. The fire source consists of four 20 x 40 cm pool filled with diesel. Diesel spray is also applied at 2,5 litre per minute at a pressure of 5 bar, which showers the engine. The heat effect reaches approximately 1,2 MW.
