FPA Technical Director set to hold webinar on watermist technology

On the 24th March at 14:00, Dr Jim Glockling of RISCAuthority and the FPA is set to hold a webinar to discuss why watermist is unique amongst suppression technologies.

Dr Jim is the Technical Director of the FPA, Director of RISCAuthority, and Convenor of the Suppression & Detection Working Group.

The one hour webinar is set to highlight why watermist technology deployment will always require a much greater knowledge of the system, the environment it is set to work in, and the overall protection ambition. The challenges of making comparison with sprinkler system protection, and the associated pitfalls, are also discussed.

The objectives of the seminar are:

  • To explain the many modes of watermist function
  • Key factors that influence watermist performance
  • Challenges of sprinkler vs watermist consideration

After registering, users should receive a confirmation email containing the joining information. Those who attend will also receive 1 hours’ worth of CPD points.

Register here for the ‘Watermist – Why it’s Complicated’ seminar.
