Firefighting Efficiency Improvement by Spraying Water in Flames
Firefighting Efficiency Improvement
by Spraying Water in Flames
Purpose

The technology development of localization and extinguishing fire by using sprayed fluids for thermal power engineering, petroleum production, petroleum storage and petrochemicals facilities in order to reduce fire suppression time and specific flow rate of extinguishing agent.

Field of Application

Prediction of movement pattern and evaporation rate of sprayed extinguishing agents in flames during localization and extinguishing fire. Obtain results and approximate correlations are basis for parameter determination of spraying extinguishing agent as well as increasing efficiency of existing fire extinguishing technologies based on usuing aerosolic agents and developing new technologies.
