Does the type of system affect the Dv0.99 of the water mist droplets produced?

In general, high pressure water mist systems will produce a finer mist (with a lower Dv0.99) than either intermediate or low pressure systems. A notable exception to this is the SECURIPLEX FIRE-SCOPE® 2000, Low Pressure, Twin-Fluid, system.

  • The SECURIPLEX (FIRE-SCOPE® 2000) is a Low Pressure System with minimum nozzle pressures of 70psig.
  • The SECURIPLEX (FIRE-SCOPE® 2000) is a “Low Pressure” AND “Twin Fluid” Water Mist Fire Suppression System.
  • The SECURIPLEX Semi-conductor (Wet Bench) Protection System is a Low Pressure System with minimum nozzle Pressures of 40 psig.
  • The SECURIPLEX FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 is a High Pressure System with minimum nozzle pressures of 750 psig.
