ANSWERS TO FREQUENT FOGMAKER QUESTIONS

What is Fogmaker?

Fogmaker is the chosen partner and preferred automated fire suppression system manufacturer of American Loggers Fire Suppression. Fogmaker manufactures and distributes automated fire suppression systems with high-pressure water mist for engine compartments and is the market leader in Europe, the Middle East and Australia.

Why should I use Fogmaker / ALFS?

Unlike other fire suppression systems, which rely on powder, Fogmaker utilizes cutting edge water mist technology to cool and smother a fire, while also preventing a reflash.

Cools the fire – through the formation of water vapor from high-pressure water mist, which absorbs energy, temperatures in excess of 1,200 degrees are cooled in seconds.

Smothers – through the formation of water vapor, or “fog” – it displaces oxygen and “chokes” the fire.

Prevents reflash – through the foam additive, which settles as a protective film over combustible material, the possibility of reignition is eliminated.

What is FMNA?

Fogmaker North America is the North American venture of the leading fire suppression system in Europe.

Why should I choose water mist versus powder suppression systems?

Unlike powder-based fire suppression systems, water mist is environmentally friendly and not harmful to humans. Water mist also envelopes the total area of the fire zone in your machine, where powder systems only extinguish a narrow area–directly in front of the spray nozzle.

Is the ALFS system automatic?

Fogmaker is fully automated and works independently without draining electrical power. In other words, Fogmaker is ready to extinguish a fire even after you’ve gone home for the day.

How fast does Fogmaker respond to a fire?

Immediately, once a loss of pressure is detected.  The water mist will then discharge continuously for 45-120 seconds depending on the volume of liquid and number of nozzles installed.
