International Fog Inc (IFI) nozzles come in a range of sizes including ½, ¾, 1, 1.5 and 2.5 in NPT or NH. All nozzles are made in America out of the finest material including 17-4 stainless steel and a high endurance proprietary Kevlar composite. The nozzles are broken into two product lines, a medium pressure (75-300 psi) water mist (500 microns) and a low pressure (7-75 psi) large droplet (1-5 mm). The water mist nozzles are most effective in enclosed compartments, class B fires, thermal cooling, radiation protection and water sensitive material. The large drop nozzles are most effective in large volume spaces, and with class A fire sources. If you have questions about the proper nozzle for your application feel free to contact us. The nozzles can flow other agents than water including Direct Attack, FireIce, and Foams.

Applications for IFI nozzles include;

water deluge system – water walls for thermal radiation screening – low pressure water mist systems – foam systems – toxic gas mitigation – dust explosion protection – marine applications – tunnel fire protection – Halon replacement – ship water systems – escape routes on ship and oil platforms – LNG and LPG tank protection – offshore drilling rigs – transformer fire protection – flammable liquid storage

A water deluge system can either be designed for general area coverage, or a directed water spray protecting a specific equipment item. Both are delivered from fixed pipework and independent fire pumps and provide protection to:

  • control pool fires and thus reduce the likelihood of escalation;
  • provide cooling of equipment not impinged by jet fires;
  • provide a means to apply foam to extinguish hydrocarbon pool fires; and
  • limit effects of fires to facilitate emergency response and evacuation escape and rescue (EER) activities.

The four broad types of deluge system include:

  • area protection designed to provide non-specific coverage of pipework and equipment within process areas;
  • equipment protection designed to provide dedicated coverage of critical equipment such as vessels and wellheads;
  • structural protection designed to provide dedicated coverage of structural members;
  • water curtains to reduce thermal radiation and to control the movement of smoke in order to provide protection to personnel during escape and evacuation.

The Fire Suppression Tool (FST) Aerosol grenade is used by Firefighters, Police, Armed forces and First Responders as a highly effective suppression tool against early stage and fully developed fires. The FST aerosol grenade is designed for mobile rapid total flooding fire suppression applications The FST is non-pressurized and is deployed manually by pulling a pin which will set off an electronic ignition system.

After triggering the FST generator, an aerosol mist is generated, which expands volumetrically, flooding the space and suppressing the flames within seconds. The FST is designed for the use on class A, B, C and K fires and covers up to 5,300 cubic feet.

The Laser Methane Mini II offers a significant advantage over conventional detection methods by detecting Methane & Natural Gas leaks from a distance or through a window. This ability to remotely detect increases the speed of the search and offers a wider area of search due to sweeping of the beam. This is accomplished while keeping personal out of the gas cloud. The meter has a rapid warm-up (less than 60 seconds), self-calibration, is portable and lightweight. The wide temperature range allows its use in cold & hot weather

Principle of measurement – Laser Methane detection is based on utilization of laser absorption spectrophotometer of methane gas. The system detects natural gas leaks by emitting a Laser at particular wavelengths and analyzing the light reflected back from the ground to determine how much was absorbed by the methane in the natural gas. The measured gas volume is expressed by the methane column density (ppm-m): methane density (ppm) multiplied by the thickness (m).

Difficult to reach areas – Accumulated gas clouds in commercial and industrial facilities are commonplace. The Laser Methane mini allows for detection removing the need for ladders, scaffolding or aerial platforms or immersion into the gas with point source measurement devices.

Additional technology features

  • Can detect faster than conventional method (Detection speed 0.1 sec)
  • Remote Detection – By simply pointing the laser beam towards the suspected leak or along the survey line.
  • Can detect through the window. Measurement of room filled with methane from outside.
  • Only sensitive to methane so no false reports.

Typical applications include

Emergency response

Industrial and commercial property surveys

Gas processing plants

Landfill monitoring

Distribution pipeline surveys

Transmission pipeline surveys

The Micashield Fire Resistant Battery Container (FRBC) is an innovative product that can be used to protect lithium-Ion and Lithium-Polymer from fire during storage, transportation, or use. The exceptional insulation properties of the Micashield FRBC allows for containment in case of a battery fire and reduces the threat of ignition due to heat transfer in the event of a external fire. The construction of the FRBC includes a waterproof outer coating, Proprietary Micashield high temperature textile sandwiching a high insulated core material. The result is a ‘cold face’ temperature less than 400C (752F) after a 30 minute exposer on the ‘hot face’ side of +1000C (1832F). This allows for many substances to be kept below their ignition temperature.

The FRBC demonstrated the ability to withstand the thermal runaway generated by 6 lithium ion battery packs with the potential energy of 0.960 kWh. Decomposition gases and smoke are vented by design with no flames generated outside the bag. The FRBC therefore prevented the ignition of a secondary fire despite the high temperature achieved within the FRBC.

Applications include

Storage or transport of batteries

Containment of known defective or damaged batteries

Storage of damaged batteries during forensic investigations

Transport of damaged batteries
