SEM-SAFE® in brief
SEM-SAFE® is a high-pressure water mist fire fighting system that uses micro droplets released through nozzles into protected areas.It comprises a high-pressure modular pump unit, section valves, piping and water mist nozzles.
The system is safe, efficient and environmentally friendly. With small pipe dimensions, large coverage, minimal water consumption, a compact pump unit and simple design, SEM-SAFE highpressure water mist is the perfect choice to protect data centres against fire, with reliability and cost-saving in mind.
The SEM-SAFE® water mist system is a unique fire fighting system. When water is forced through nozzles, at high-pressure, a super-fine mist is formed that has a two-fold extinguishing effect. As well as cooling the fire like a traditional sprinkler, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen like gas systems. When the mist comes into contact with flames, it evaporates and expands minimum 1,700 times. The dense vapour created displaces the flames and quickly extinguishes the fire.
The piping material is of high-class stainless steel, always meeting or exceeding AISI 316, an acid-resistant type with Mn contents. The pipe material is so soft that it can be bent. The small sizes can be shaped with hand tools saving a large number of fittings and reducing the risk for leakage.
Water is supplied via either pump units or cylinder systems. This covers small systems of just a few nozzles, right up to systems with thousands of nozzles, with or without electrical power.
