Product Description

The VID Fire-Kill Model Tampa & Biscay are open low pressure watermist nozzles integrated into thin walled stainless steel pipes and designed for bilge area protection with pure watermist in engine rooms.
The design saves cost on fittings as well as reduces the risk of getting impurities into the systems when nozzles are installed since there are fewer connections. The design ensures correct nozzle spacing installation. Finally the firefighting with pure watermist enables fast refurbishment in case of fire and less corrosion damages in case of activation.
