||3rd Quarter 2000, Vol.20, No.79, p.37-47. Illus. 12 ref.
||The principles behind the functioning of two new fire-fighting systems are described, and their practical applications are presented. They consist of smoke detection systems based on highly-sensitive aspiration (using light dispersion, laser-based particle counting, ionization and cloud chambers) and extinguishing systems based on water atomization under high pressure. Basically, these systems are not new, but have been improved thanks to technological developments in other areas.
