Marioff Launches New HI-FOG® Water Treatment Unit
3 November 2017

Marioff announces a new upgrade to its popular HI-FOG water mist fire protection system, the HI-FOG  water treatment unit (WTU). This latest addition enables the use of a wider water quality range in the HI-FOG systems. Marioff, a leading developer of water mist fire protection technology, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

 The HI-FOG WTU, which is installed on the feed water side of the HI-FOG system, consists of a chemical dosing station that includes an electric dosing pump and chemical tank. The chemical dosing unit, filled with a Marioff-recommended water treatment chemical, reacts to the flow in the HI-FOG system by feeding the appropriate amount of chemical into the system.

“I’m delighted Marioff is launching this new solution. The HI-FOG WTU will enhance the quality of the water. This will extend the life of the HI-FOG system and further reduce maintenance costs,” said Juha Ilvonen, marine business director, Marioff Finland.

The HI-FOG WTU can be retrofitted to existing HI-FOG systems in both land and marine applications and is currently available.
