The fire fighting effectiveness of a water mist system is defined by drop size distribution, the number of droplets, and penetration to the fire. The combination of these properties is entirely system-specific.
 
There are two principal ways to correctly disperse the water mist. One way is through the use of low pressure and specialized spray nozzles, like those found in a patio mister. Another way is to use a high pressure water source and specialized spray nozzles. The fine spray from the unique misting nozzle provides safety from electrical shock, greatly enhances the cooling and soaking characteristics of the agent and reduces scattering of the burning materials.

Water Mist system is a highly effective extinguishing system that uses water and air to generate a fine water droplet.
