    Throwback to an eventful last week at the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) Performance-Based Design (PBD) Conference and Exhibition in Copenhagen, Denmark. This premier event gathered 300 fire professionals and enthusiasts to discuss new fire safety technologies, methods, processes, and materials for safer buildings. During the event, we were incredibly sad to witness Børsen, the old Stock Exchange House and one of Denmark’s most iconic and historic buildings, burn into flames. The 400-year-old building was well recognized in the Copenhagen skyline, due to its dragon-tailed spire. This unfortunate event reinforces the importance of protecting historical buildings with reliable fire safety solutions. Forums, like the ones provided by SFPE, are thus essential to sharing knowledge and taking action. During the SFPE congress, we tackled the benefits behind our SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist solution for key applications, such as heritage, hospitals, mass timber buildings, tunnels, and parking garages with electric vehicles, to name just a few. The Danfoss Fire Safety representatives Poul HarderANTONIO TERIOHenrik BygbjergLars Wrang JensenJonas Ertmann HansenOliver Bradleynicolas BRIANDMaria Elisabeta Salcudean and Frederikke Tange would like to thank all participants for their interest in our technology, for the knowledgeable discussions, and interesting presentations.

    High-pressure water mist – suitable for modern data centre cooling methods

    Published 22 April 2024

    If you design data centres, you will have… View

    Danfoss Fire Safety Data CentreIf you design data centres, you will have noticed that facilities are getting bigger – and hotter. As a result, data centre cooling is evolving towards new techniques that provide effective, sustainable, and cost-effective cooling that maintains the right temperature, even as server rack power continues to grow. But no matter which cooling technology is used at the facility, high-pressure water mist systems are evolving too in order to continue to provide efficient fire suppression and thus remains the key to optimal fire safety design in any data centre.

    Growing industry, growing demands

    The data centre industry is growing rapidly – as are the demands placed on it. The increasing adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud services, edge computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) means that the need for storage space and processing power is skyrocketing. Server racks are getting more powerful, but their increasing power density also means higher rack temperatures. At the same time, data centre owners and operators need to minimise operating costs and reduce power consumption as much as possible to minimise the climate impact of their systems to comply with client expectations and sustainability legislation.

    Evolution driven by power density

    Adopting new cooling techniques is a good solution to these challenges. Liquid cooling such as direct-to-chip cooling and immersion cooling offers high performance plus efficiency improvements that can increase power usage effectiveness (PUE) and reduce climate impact. This evolution is largely driven by increasing power density: With the more powerful, and hotter, server racks being deployed, traditional air cooling including CRAC (computer room air conditioning) and CRAH (computer room air handling) in many cases is no longer sufficient. Liquid cooling, by contrast, offers the required performance.
    • In direct-to-chip cooling, small pipes deliver liquid coolant directly to the server motherboard. The liquid absorbs processor heat which is then transported out of the server and evaporated (using a chilled-water loop or similar).
    • In immersion cooling, the server itself is submerged into liquid coolant, for example mineral oil or another dielectric liquid. The coolant is pumped through an evaporator system, efficiently removing the heat from the server hardware.

    Varying risk profiles

    But how exactly do cooling methods affect fire protection? Do they make any difference? It depends on how the data centre is designed. Data centre designers take many different approaches to cooling depending on their targets, and the risk profile depends very much on the actual design in each case. A couple of examples:
    • If air cooling is used, how are the airflows designed? Does the cooling system use forced ventilation, and does it use hot and cold aisles? What role do the airflows play in a fire – and how do you design a fire suppression system that delivers the required performance in each case?
    • If the data centre relies on immersion cooling, what liquid is being used? Some dielectric fluids have a flash point low enough for them to constitute a fire hazard. And what would happen if unforeseen events or mechanical failure were to result in liquid leakage or heating?
    In any case, the increased temperatures in modern data centres constitutes an increased risk. If the cooling system fails, today’s high-powered data centre server racks will quickly rise to higher temperatures, increasing the risk of asset breakdowns – and of fire. [caption id="attachment_14372" align="alignnone" width="700"]FM Approvals data centre halls - below floor double tier cable trays fire test[/caption]

    High-pressure water mist remains effective

    Fortunately, the wide variety of cooling technologies and general design principles doesn’t have to give the fire safety designer sleepless nights: In a changing data centre industry, high-pressure water mist systems remain a reliable method for suppressing data centre fires.When activated, a high-pressure water mist system emits a fine mist of water droplets through a localised section of nozzles. The droplets attack two elements of the fire triangle, removing both oxygen and heat and combining the suppression effect of gas and traditional sprinkler systems.In data centre applications, high-pressure water mist has several benefits over gas or sprinklers. It uses less water, reducing damage to data centre assets. Only the nozzles in the affected area are activated, further reducing water consumption. And because the system uses only clean water, it is harmless to humans, and excess water can quickly be removed after a fire, shortening downtime.The physical properties of high-pressure water mist systems mean that they are capable of handling any type of data centre fire. This applies to all commercially available solutions that conform to the FM 5560 Approval Standard for Water Mist Systems (Appendix M and N), and some manufacturers go beyond that basic requirement.The nozzles of the SEM-SAFE® system from Danfoss Fire Safety, for example, have been tested and approved for higher nozzle release temperatures, allowing for an increase in the ambient temperature within the data halls. This reduces demand on the cooling system and minimises cooling system energy consumption significantly.  As new cooling methods introduce these challenges in fire protection, whether that be from increase air velocities, liquid cooling, or higher temperatures, Danfoss Fire Safety works with third parties to evaluate its solutions, such as tests from FM 5560 Data Centre tests (Appendix M and N) and additional fire tests with RISE Fire Research in Norway.

    Additional benefits with future-proof technology

    In addition to reliable fire suppression, high-pressure water mist systems provide other benefits to the fire system designer, installer, and data centre operator: The small pipe size and compact pump units typically used make the solutions easy to integrate and install. And their low water and reduction in raw materials makes them a good match for clients looking to reduce their climate footprint.You may find yourself faced with many different rack space and cooling system designs, and with the need to design and install fire protection systems that deliver satisfactory performance for all of them. High-pressure water mist has been an excellent choice for fire extinguishing systems in data centres for years. As the industry evolves to tackle new challenges and client demands, the technology remains the key to ensuring adequate fire safety.

    What is SEM-SAFE®  system for fire protection

    SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist systems are suitable for protecting an entire mission-critical data facility, including double tier cable trays, data processing equipment rooms or halls, and sub-floors.

    In addition, SEM-SAFE® systems comprise a high-pressure modular pump unit, section valves, piping, and water mist nozzles. The pump unit has a compact design, low weight, small footprint and an easy configuration to fit the data center’s need for expansion.

    Moreover the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water systems use water micro-droplets released through the nozzle into protected areas. An ultra-fine mist is formed with a two-fold extinguishing effect. In addition to cooling the flames, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen. The cooling effect also lowers the risk of re-ignition, protects against heat damage, and hinders fire spreading.

    Features and benefits

    •  Minimum downtime
    •  Low water consumption
    •  Ventilation can be kept running
    •  Lower total cost of ownership 
    •  Small pump and water tank footprint

    We are very happy to introduce the new SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun product version 2.0. 

    Through engineering and research, we developed a fire fighting product that is an immediate and efficient tool for the fire brigade and non-professionals to use in the fight against fire. The fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is part of the 1st emergency response strategy in case of a fire. The fire department saves important time.

    The new SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun replaces the traditional design consisting of sprinkler system and separate hose reel system, whilst adding a series of advantages within installation, integration and operation. The most important goal is to offer the best possible efficiency when fighting fire and protect people, equipment and assets.

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is suitable for installation in any building types, modern or historic, and of any size and height

    It is an immediate fire safety solution for commercial applications such as hotels, stores, warehouses, underground car parks, health care facilities, educational facilities, museums, offices and high-rise buildings. 

    The Danfoss SEM-SAFE®fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is suitable for fire fuelled by wood furniture, plastics, but also flammable liquids and combustible liquids.

    Key advantages of the SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun

    Fully integrated with SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is designed for direct connection to a high-pressure water mist system for fire fighting, meaning there is no need for separate installations and separate systems.

                              Simple to operate                                                      

    Precision & simplicity in handling have been crucial parameters in developing the product. 
    The 50 m hose is thin and extra flexible for added ease of handling and a larger coverage area.

     Fast & easy installation

    Everything is optimised on the SEM-SAFE fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun for quick and easy installation by just one person.

    There is  extra flexibility in installation. By turning the cabinet around and by reassembling the internal main components, the fire cabinet door can be changed to left or right hinged.The fire cabinet has pre-cut holes for piping, which allow for extra flexibility in installation.

    One fire safety technology to cover all areas in a building

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinets can be connected directly to the high-pressure water mist piping network with very small branch pipes (OD 12 mm). Thus, a dedicated separate piping network is not needed. This means less time is spent on piping work, planning and installation as well as fewer components need to be installed on-site.

  • “Click” solution for SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation

    Published 2 April 2020

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit has been developed… View

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit has been developed to fit the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist nozzle and is compatible with a variety of ceiling types. It is suitable for drop-hose installation and fixed piping. It allows for easy installation and servicing of nozzles.

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit can be used for the following purposes:  

    • simply covering the nozzle or  
    • installing the nozzle in the ceiling, while also ensuring nozzle coverage

    Simplicity and ease of use were key parameters in developing this solution. With the help of magnets fitted to the clamp disc, the cover plate simply ‘clicks’ and covers the installation area. 

    By using the nozzle installation kit, the SEM-SAFE® nozzle can be installed last and the pressure testing can be done before the nozzle is finally installed in the ceiling. With this installation solution, any maintenance and inspection as well as alteration to the ceiling can be done without interfering with the high-pressure water mist nozzle and system, thereby saving time on installation and maintenance significantly. 

    The "click" solution kit includes 3 main components:

    Clamp disc
    - to be installed around the nozzle neck. The clamp disc is designed as a multi bracket, to utilize for both installing nozzles with screws and for installing nozzle with "spider" weldment functionality.


    Cover plate - clicks on clamp disc to cover the nozzle installation area.

    "Spider" weldment
    - needed when screws can not be used for installation. Supports installation from the top side of the ceiling.


    Please click here in order to access the data sheet for the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit.


    There are three methods in total of installing the nozzle using the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit:

    1. Nozzle installation with cover plate and clamp disc - nozzle covering only

    2. Nozzle installation with cover plate and clamp disc - installation directly in the ceiling or wall with screws

    3. Nozzle installation with cover plate, clamp disc and "spider" weldment - installation directly in the ceiling or wall with the use of "spider" weldment

    How to order

    To order the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit, write to our Customer Centrer via
    Please enclose the item number, the quantity you wish to order, your reference number, delivery address and contact information for the recipient. Remember to state the delivery date you require. The item number can be found in the data sheet. If you require the installation kit for a nozzle not listed in the data sheet, please specify the nozzle ID and nozzle part number and our Customer Centre will contact you back. 

    How can we help you?

    The sky´s the limit

    The cover plate can be painted in any RAL colour with standard gloss 10 (matt) and up to gloss 90.
    This helps the Danfoss product to blend in with whatever beautiful room and ceiling design and colours you choose. When ordering a coloured cover plate from our Customer Centre, make sure to also mention the RAL colour and gloss required. Customer Centre would then contact you back about the new price and new item number for the coloured cover plate you specified.

It was our pleasure to welcome 80 participants representing 28 Partner companies from 23 countries. At Danfoss Fire Safety, we call our distributors from the “land” market (buildings & industry) ‘Partners’. The seminar is a platform for sharing news with our Partners, getting direct feedback from them, but it is also a great way to socialize and have some fun. Day 1 took place at the Danfoss Grodzisk Mazowiecki Poland office.Adam Jedrzejczak, President of Danfoss EER Region, gave us an insight into the “muscle” power behind Danfoss. Our R&D department released a brand-new 3D Product Configurator Tool. The tool is embedded in our homepage. It offers a simple and transparent product portfolio. The 3D models are available 24/7 with accurate dimensions and comprehensive, up-to-date technical data. With this tool, we are truly putting digitalisation at the fingertips of our Partners by giving them the possibility to configure and preview the product with a single click. Partners can use it together with their own customers, for example architects, for a full hands-on digital experience. Day 2 took place in Warsaw, where we saw the installation of the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system in the Varso high-rise building, an iconic landmark in Warsaw, currently under construction. Once completed, Varso tower will be the tallest building in Poland and the European Union. We are extremely proud that our SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system ensures optimum fire safety of people and assets in this impressive building. For more information about Varso tower, please visit the Varso homepage. Passion for the fire safety business and the people behind it is the driver motivating us to create this kind of event. The first Partner Seminar was organised in 2010 and since then it has become an annual event, lasting 2 days.

  • Best fire suppression system for Data Centre

    Published 26 February 2019

    Technological advances in fire suppression for data centres… View

    Technological advances in fire suppression for data centres over the last 20 years mean that gas & chemical-based solutions developments are becoming obsolete. Amongst their disadvantages are the facts that they usually involve releasing chemicals over a wide area and require ventilation systems to be shut down to remove oxygen. Electrical supply often has to be cut & clean-up operations take time. Staff safety, damage limitation & the amount of downtime are all major disadvantages with these traditional solutions. More & more data centres have therefore been turning to high-pressure water mist solutions. These systems comprise a tailor-made network of nozzles, which release micro-fine particles of water exactly at the point of the incident. While the localised fire is quickly extinguished, the remainder of the data centre’s operations and equipment remain unaffected & can be kept up & running.  The solution is completely harmless to staff and equipment & clean up is swift.  

    High pressure water mist fire suppression - how it works

    The key benefit of high-pressure water mist fire suppression solutions are the extremely low levels of water used. Using a high-pressure pump, clean water is forced through a specially designed, tested network of stainless steel pipework and nozzles at 60 or 100bar. The microfine water droplets emitted have sizes ranging from 50 to 200 µm. They quickly vaporise to cool and extinguish the fire, by displacing the oxygen around the fire zone. With this localised response, only the nozzle at the affected point is triggered and hardly any trace of water remains after activation. The area does not need to be sealed in the same way that a gas suppression system requires and ventilation does not need to be turned off. Energy supply and business operations can continue as usual.  

    Proven experience in data centres

    Danfoss is a global leader in the sale, development, production and service/commissioning of certified fixed fire fighting systems under the brand name SEM-SAFE®. Innovation is our approach. Our SEM-SAFE® system for data centres uses high-pressure water mist. We have been engineering and pioneering SEM-SAFE® fire fighting systems for decades and have successfully designed and installed systems in major data centres.  

    Data Centre World London

    Data centre experts meet this year at Data Centre World 2019 in London. Danfoss is participating here with Fireworks, our official business Partner for UK market. “Fireworks was the first company to install high-pressure water mist solutions for data centres in the UK” said Derek Killaspy, Managing Director of Fireworks. “Moreover, major data centres around the world have put their confidence in the Danfoss SEM-SAFE® systems that we work with. Each year on our exhibition stand with Danfoss at Data Centre World, we are continuing to see even more interest for our solutions.” For more information on the SEM-SAFE® product meet us on Stand D1166 at Data Centre World on 12th and 13th March at London's Excel.For VIP tickets please click here.

    Better fire protection for metros and suburbain rail

    Our society is characterized by a transportation system that expands daily, contributing to our modern living. In some of the biggest metro stations in the world, millions of people transit every hour. In such crowded places, ensuring people’s safety can be a challenge. The passengers only transit the area, most of them without knowledge on what are the fire escape procedures. Metros are also poorly ventilated, which can easily lead to radiant heat and smoke being amplified. It is a prerequisite for metros to be equipped with a reliable fire protection system that will make evacuation of people possible and facilitate the access for the fire fighting crew. Rigorous tests have proven that SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system is the optimum fire fighting system for protecting these critical transit areas.  Marton Horvath, Country Manager at Danfoss Fire Fighting, presented the test results and benefits of SEM-SAFE® for metro stations and suburban rail at the RIFA Annual General Meeting.

    Danfoss Semco and their local partner NDN have, in close collaboration with the Tianjin Fire Research Institute of the Ministry of Public Security, established a demonstration mock-up for heritage buildings. The site is located at the TFRI fire testing center in Tianjin, China. Parameters such as activation time, spray pattern and water consumption can easily be demonstrated to fire marshals, design institutes and other government bodies. Overall, the test illustrates that the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system from Danfoss Semco is the optimal fire-fighting solution for heritage applications. Most buildings classified as heritage buildings were constructed before the time of fire codes and contain highly combustible materials. Wood structures are always a concern and have a high fire risk. High-pressure water mist is increasingly in demand for protecting these sensitive applications. The tests performed are the result of the need to maximize the fire safety of valuable structures.

    Safe and reliable

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system activates immediately upon fire detection. It is harmless to humans and uses a 100% environmentally friendly extinguishing agent.

    Perfect for retrofit projects and wood structures

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system uses high-quality stainless steel pipes that have a small diameter. They are light and can easily be bent to fit in tight spaces. The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist nozzles have an aesthetic design that fits with historical and modern design interiors.

    Limited water consumption

    Due to the minimum water consumption, the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system weighs very little. This makes it possible to install the system in areas where only lightweight systems can be used. Also, in cases of activation, the water damage is kept to a minimum. heritage-test-cn

    Extensive track record for heritage buildings in Europe

    In Europe, Danfoss Semco has an extensive track record of SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist installations in heritage buildings, such as: the Budapest Parliament in Hungary, Comparto San Paolo Modena historical library in Italy, Teatro Comunale Ponchielli Cremona in Italy, Havnbjerg Mølle mill museum in Denmark, Gamle Gård Kristiansand museum in Norway, Ten Trinity Square in London, United Kingdom.

Putting out the fire in seconds, without using any chemical additives and with minimal consumption of water and close to no water damage, it is one of the most environmentally-friendly and efficient fire fighting systems available, and is totally safe for human beings. The presentations and discussions that took place during the seminar have led to a high interest in high-pressure water mist. As a results several more seminars and trainings are already being discussed, where Danfoss Semco can take the opportunity to explain the details behind the high–pressure water mist technology and present the track record of projects where SEM-SAFE® has been installed worldwide.

    After working with water mist from the very beginning, Jens Jepsen has decided to retire at the end of April 2016.

    Jens Jepsen started developing the SEM-SAFE® water mist system in the early nineties and has been an important part of the Danfoss Semco research and development team ever since. For one, Jens has been part of forming the important ground rules within fire fighting with water mist, especially high-pressure, including IMO (from 1994) and CEN (from 2007). In addition, Jens is honary member of IWMA (International Water Mist Association) due to his engagement in water mist. Finally, Jens is probably one of the people in the world who has performed the most fire tests with water mist. For Jens, a personal success was to be able to work with a product where the quality was the best and also had a place in the market. Also, it has always been important to create safety and satisfaction for the customer by finding solutions every day that he could vouch for. Jens Jepsen appreciates the good times he has had with the remarkable people from the business. When Jens retires he will spend time with his family, working on his house and summer house, and go fishing and hunting. We want to take this opportunity to thank Jens Jepsen for the extreme amount of work and dedication he has given our company throughout the years. We believe that the success of water mist very much if owed to the commitment of Jens Jepsen. We wish Jens Jepsen all the best in the future. IMG_4528

    The German partner "Callies Brandbekämpfungsysteme GmbH" was among the first companies specializing in high-pressure water systems for land based applications.

    In March 2016 Callies and Danfoss Semco reconfirmed the partnership by signing a new agreement. As one of the pioneers in high-pressure water systems for land based applications “Callies Brandbekämpfungsysteme GmbH” became a valuable partner back in 2004.  (At this time to Semco Maritime as the predecessor for Danfoss Semco). Throughout the years Callies has been, and still is, a strong contributor to the growth and acceptance of our technology in a rather conservative fire fighting business segment. We highly value the efforts and commitment of Managing Director Oliver Callies and his team as a long standing and dedicated partner, says Mogens Jessen, Director, Water Mist Industrial & Commercial, Danfoss Semco.

    In December 2015, the entire Danfoss Semco China team gathered together for a meeting far away from the daily office environment, in Sanya, a beautiful, tropical city situated on Hainan Island in Southeast China. Group (3) The meeting had two main objectives: to make a summary of activities in 2015 and to draft the objectives and upcoming events for 2016. With these two main topics in mind, the meeting was of great importance. It was an opportunity to gather all the lessons learned in 2015 and implement this knowledge into planning 2016, ensuring that the year would start on a high note. For 2016, the team has approached 4 subjects:
    • Divide Danfoss Semco China into one division responsible for sales in the southern part of China and one division responsible for sales in the northern part of China. The purpose of this decision is to strengthen our networks of distributors and to reinforce our sales and marketing activities.
    • The roles within the Danfoss Semco China organisation have been redefined to take advantage of staff skills and abilities.
    • A completely new strategy called “Must Win Battles 2016” has been brainstormed to cover price management, sales strategy, market development and certificate target.
    • Training within pipeline management.
    The meeting was a success and all employees gained a good understanding of the goals and responsibilities within Danfoss Semco China. To ensure team cohesion, several sessions of the meeting in Sanya were allocated to team building, improving staff morale and enhancing skills. We have taken all the right steps towards a good start to 2016 and the team is confident that it will be a productive year. Teambuilding 1

    November has proven to be an interesting and very busy month for the Danfoss Semco marketing and land department. In close collaboration with Fireworks Ltd., our distributor in the United Kingdom, we have organised two events targeting key contacts in the British market.On the 25th of November 2015, the Houses of Parliament was the incredible location chosen to host our first event.  A select group of clients, together with key representatives from Danfoss Semco and Fireworks, enjoyed a tour of the Palace of Westminster, which is the meeting place of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, as well as a royal residence of the “Crown”.  The tour was followed by a lovely dinner, networking and fantastic conversation. The day ended on a high note as we got the chance to visit the “Viewing Gallery” where we witnessed the Chancellor, George Osbourne deliver his autumn statement. IMG_0277Great atmosphere at the end of the visit to the UK Houses of Parliament The second event took place the very next day on the 26th of November at Wembley Stadium, a location that is so representative of the British love of sport and leisure. With more than 90,000 seats Wembley is the second largest stadium in Europe. It was a great honour to be able to hold our seminar in the same location that has hosted major sport events and where legendary voices, such as Michael Jackson and Tina Turner have been heard. The event focused on the “Benefits of High-Pressure Water Mist Systems in Commercial Applications” and there were more than 65 guests from different companies from all around the United Kingdom. The event received accreditation from the Institute of Fire Engineers. The seminar has proven to be a great learning opportunity concerning the advantages of using high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting. The day ended with a grand tour of Wembley Stadium, which included access to the beautiful stadium pitch.

    The Danfoss Semco's portfolio at the China Fire 2015 fair has attracted many visitors interested in hearing about our innovative fire fighting technology. Representatives from both Danfoss Semco in Denmark and Danfoss Semco in Tianjin joined forces in a shared effort to exhibit at the 16th International Fire Protection Equipment Exhibition in China, one of the largest fire protection exhibitions in China. The event is an important channel for various levels of fire officials to meet, but also a significant trade platform in the Asia-Pacific region. DSC_1602 Visitors to the Danfoss Semco stand got the opportunity to see real life demonstrations of the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system, allowing them to get a good understanding of the excellent properties of high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting. Water is forced through nozzles at high-pressure to form a super fine mist. This has a two-fold extinguishing effect. As well as cooling the fire like a traditional sprinkler, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen like gas systems do. Visitors were able to touch the water mist and learn how high-pressure water mist is completely safe for human beings. Our range of nozzles for various applications was exhibited at the fair, giving visitors the opportunity to see the advantage of using SEM-SAFE® for fire protection in all areas and rooms of a building. China Fire 2015 was an excellent opportunity for Danfoss Semco to highlight its most recently acquired certification, the CCCF certificate, which makes Danfoss Semco the first manufacturer of water mist to attain CCCF approval. This adds to Danfoss Semco’s certificate portfolio, reassuring customers that we are a realiable, approved and original manufacturer of high-pressure water mist systems. We would like to thank the many people who visited our stand and express our appreciation for their interest in Danfoss Semco products.
