Course Description: This course builds upon the introductory course 'Water Mist Applications for Fire Protection'. The presenter will focus on the use of water mist systems to retrofit existing structures as well as specific applications with industrial fryers, data server rooms, and lithium-ion battery protection. Water mist systems are ideal for historic structures containing dated artifacts and for applications where minimal water use is preferred. Participants will learn how water mist works to suppress or extinguish a fire and gain an understanding of the FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheet 4-2 titled ‘Water Mist Systems’ for these applications.

Learning Objectives:
• Explain how water mist suppresses or extinguishes fire in various applications
• Understand the benefits of water mist systems when retrofitting existing structures
• Learn how water mist protection applies to industrial kitchens, data centers and energy storage systems
