Aerosol systems are suitable for use in smaller technical containers. When activated, the extinguishing systems release fine aerosols, which can then safely fight a fire in the closed area. Aerosol systems are used in areas where gas extinguishing systems with cylinders are too complex.
The extinguishing effect of the aerosol system is based on an interaction of the flames with the aerosol. In a cartridge, a defined amount of solid is stored, which is ignited electrically in an alarm. By the controlled burning of the solid in the generator aerosols are formed, which flow at high speed in the protection area.
