Fighting fires in tunnel systems and metro shafts are usually both challenging and dangerous activities. The enormous amount of smoke and soot generated considerably hinders efforts to extinguish the blaze. Added to this is the extensive development of heat.
Our firefighting turbines have on many occasions already proven how effective they are in these areas. The water mist captures the smoke and the soot particles in the air and brings them down to the ground. The turbine also supports the tunnel’s existing ventilator system. The water is atomized and spread over a larger area, which results in a larger area for heat transportation. The development of heat around the burning object is reduced.
The burning object is almost enveloped by the water mist, which deprives it of oxygen, thus suffocating the fire. The fire is rendered inert in a limited amount of space, and directly at its source.
