Sinorix H₂O Jet

About Sinorix H₂O Jet

Unique two-phase flow technology that generates fine water droplets at low hydraulic pressure ─ for effective control of open fires as well as for accurate extinguishing in object protection.

Highlights

  •     Highly flexible for both object and volumetric protection
  •     Low-pressure system reaching the same effectiveness as high-pressure system
  •     Use of SinorixTM CDT (Constant Discharge Technology) for constant flooding
  •     Unique two-phase flow technology uses a mixture of water and gas generating fine water droplets
  •     Droplet size and amount of water is tailored to the specific risk of fire for an enormous cooling effect
  •     Two different nozzles: one for object protection, the other for volumetric protection
  •     Innovative nozzle for object protection patented by Siemens
  •     Usage of simple galvanized pipes possible
  •     Harmless for people and the environment as water is used as extinguishing agent
  •     Objects stays well accessible thanks to high jet length
  •     Low maintenance costs thanks to easy and cost-efficient refilling

System overview Sinorix H₂O Jet

Sinorix H2O Jet mirrors our extensive expertise and profound know-how: with the Siemens patented nozzle technology and the use of the innovative Sinorix CDT (Constant Discharge Technology) that provides constant flooding. Sinorix H2O Jet is highly flexible and can be used for object and volumetric protection to control or even extinguish open fires. Thus, a single object can be protected in a targeted way, or an object and its surrounding area within a defined radius. Sinorix H2O Jet is a low-pressure system with less than 16 bar – reaching the same effectiveness as a high-pressure system because it mixes nitrogen with water. The nitrogen therefore acts as propellant for the water and is carried by the same piping network.

Concept example

The combination of the nozzles with the two-phase flow technology results in fine water droplets at low hydraulic pressure. This offers advantages such as the use of simple galvanized pipes as well as autonomous systems with steel tanks. In addition, the moderate water quality requirements ensure efficient operation. Only droplets of the right size can provide maximum cooling. This is why Siemens carefully considers the risks of fire for a particular application to decide how Sinorix H2O Jet droplets should best be formed. Choosing the appropriate nozzle either for object or volumetric protection ensures droplets of the most effective size.

Agent overview Sinorix H₂O Jet

The smaller the water droplets, the larger the surface area available to absorb heat from and to smother a fire. This way, a small amount of water is already highly effective. The low water consumption is beneficial for the environment. In addition, water is easy to obtain, transport, and store. And SinorixTM H2O Jet doesn’t require a special water quality: good filtration is sufficient to ensure cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly extinguishing.
