The Experimental Study on Extinguishing Cooking Oil Fires by Water Mist


Article Preview

Abstract. The effects of flow coefficients, working pressures and different spray distances on extinguishing cooking oil fires by water mist were studied by experiment. The results show that the fire suppression effectiveness is increased with the increase of flow coefficient and working pressure, spray distance also affects the fire extinguishment efficiency of water mist. Reasonable conditions and designing parameters for practical engineering application of water mist are suggested.
