THE UNIQUE FIREXPRESS MICRO-DROPS


Firexpress has designed the patented dual nozzle of the lance so that it produces extremely small water micro-drops that evaporate very fast, reducing the temperature of the fire quickly. This is achieved in an optimal combination with a low nozzle pressure and still achieving a long spray range of up to 15 meters.



The micro-drops are so small that 1 liter of water produces a surface area of more than 100 m2.

As the micro-drops vary in size, it is possible to use the aerodynamic effect of a moving water drop to propel the smallest micro-drops out to a range of up to 15 meters. The largest micro-drops, although still small will create a vacuum behind them as they travel through the air. The smallest micro-drops will enter the vacuum and will be dragged along with the larger micro-drops so that they also achieve a long spray range.

Due to their size, virtually all the micro-drops sprayed into a fire are turned into steam. This leaves almost no water damage afterwards, which normally is substantial when using traditional fire fighting equipment on e.g. house fires.

THE FIREXPRESS LANCE

The Firexpress lance is a lot more than microdrops.
