Why is a FIKE Micromist system better?

The Fike MicroMist fire suppression system produces a fine mist to extinguish fires quickly and with very little residual water -- making it safe fire protection for everything from occupied spaces to valuable assets. That is efficient, controlled protection not found with many traditional fire protection options such as fire sprinklers.

The Fike MicroMist fire protection system uses single fluid, intermediate pressure, reducing high installation and maintenance costs associated with redundant piping networks and high pressure piping and fittings. The convenient MicroMist is a self-contained, single-fluid, pre-engineered water mist fire suppression system offered in 70 and 112 gallon (265 and 423 liter) cylinder configurations. Each MircoMist fire suppression system is pre-assembled, tested and packaged with all necessary valves and actuation components for system operation, (though system nozzles must be ordered separately). That's portability, reliability and simple installation in one easy package!

This cost-effective water mist system employs a brass nozzle, which has demonstrated excellent performance extinguishing flammable liquid (Class B) fire scenarios. The Fike MicroMist fire protection system is ideally suited for total compartment protection of machinery spaces, compartmentalized gas turbine generators (FM approved) and many other applications.

Don't settle for ordinary, damaging fire protection, water mist systems or fire sprinklers ... use the simple, cost-effective MicroMist Fire Suppression System by Fike:

  • Environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and people safe
  • Minimal amounts of water released (100 times less water than traditional sprinkler systems) means reduced down-time due to fire-related damage
  • Advanced detection and control system delivers rapid detection and suppression
  • Operates with Fike Cheetah Fire Suppression Panel
  • Intermediate pressure piping network eliminates expensive high-pressure piping, fittings, and associated installation costs
  • Self-contained, single fluid system eliminates expensive additional piping network
  • Takes less floor space than comparable Carbon Dioxide system
  • NO expensive and time-consuming discharge testing required

Fike MicroMist systems are suitable for hazards up to 9,175 cubic feet (260 cubic meters) including:

  • Oil and gas process plants and production modules
  • Gas and steam turbines
  • Fuel handling units
  • Machine rooms
  • Flare snuffing
  • Engine test cells
  • Special hazard machine rooms
  • Incidental storage of flammable liquids
  • Diesel engine emergency generators
