Water Mist Fire Protection Systems for Engine Compartments in Buses and Coaches

Project description

Innovative fire protection system for buses

Devastating fires cause loss of human life along with significant material and financial damages. In the EU, this led to the review of Regulation 107 on vehicle anti-fire equipment. Under these new rules, vehicles transporting more than 22 passengers should be equipped with automatic fire detection and suppression systems in the engine section. The EU-funded SNIPER project proposes a matchless fire protection system that uses water mist. The small water drops ensure perfect control and extinguishing. The system is provided with advanced components to disperse water all over the engine, reduce gas pressure and release the water. The system significantly lowers extinguishing time, restricts water consumption and considerably reduces gas and water pressure levels.
