NanoMist® is a revolutionary new agent for thermal management, fire prevention, and fire protection, starting from residential kitchen to industrial fire protection applications.
NanoMist is a gas-like ultrafine water mist that flows in cluttered space, around objects, and corners.
NanoMist overcomes pitfalls of Halon substitutes and short comings of pressure atomized mist with a wide spread of droplet size distribution.
About NanoMist Hybrid Fire Protection
The breakthrough technology of NanoMist resulted from fifteen years of research and development efforts by NanoMist Systems.
Through the U .S. Navy sponsored tests, university labs, and basic applied research, important characteristics of NanoMist have been evaluated and validated.
A number of U.S. Navy reports, magazine articles, international conference presentations, and publications in refereed journals are available online.
NanoMist Hybrid System (NHS) evolved as a novel blend of gas-like water mist (NanoMist®) and nitrogen showing strong "synergistic" effects of components.

Synergistic Effect of Water and Nitrogen Components in NHS Hybrid
A paradigm shift is evolving by NanoMist® Hybrid System (NHS) with an enhanced performance due to “synergistic” effects of gas-like ultrafine water mist and an inert gas blend. Neither water alone nor inert gas could provide the hybrid blend performance at similar mass flow rates, used independently. The below 10-micron uniform droplet size of NanoMist® ultrafine water droplets interact with fire generating a favorable flow dynamic for local depletion of oxygen at the fire base. The analytical theory is being developed. Upon introduction of hybrid blend with a small proportion 8-12% (wt.) of water significantly reduced the extinction times even at low release pressures such as 200-300 psi. At 12% water and 300 psi, the extinction time was about 100 s in a 28 m3 room.
A comprehensive data of extinction times for randomly varied water mass fraction and nitrogen release pressures is shown for 28 m3 room with NHS hybrid.
