System overview Sinorix H₂O Gas
During a fire, Sinorix™ H2O Gas floods an area simultaneously with both nitrogen and water mist for ideal protection from combustion, smoke, and heat damage. Both extinguishing agents are carried by the same piping network and are distributed by the same nozzles to the flooding zone. Nitrogen is used as the extinguishing agent and as the propellant for the water, modifying the dispersement and softening the initial burst of gas. Thanks to the water component, reignition is not possible.

The extinguishing system is laid out using a specifically developed calculation program. The program was tested and approved by VdS as part of its system approval.
Sinorix H₂O Gas minimizes secondary damage with its fine spraying technology, which requires only 30 - 80 liters of water for each 100 cubic meters of space. It generates ultrafine droplets with a diameter of 10 - 50 μm. The smaller the droplets are, the larger their relative surface area is, and the greater the cooling effect they have. As a result, exposed surfaces are coated with only a very thin layer of water. This is usually harmless, even on electrical equipment, because the water normally evaporates within a few minutes.
The water mist additionally removes toxic fumes from the air. This protects the health of people in the affected area and prevents smoke damage to property. Moreover, the area can be entered and utilized sooner because the removal of the toxic fumes restores visibility very quickly.
