Abstract : Pre-primed ultra high speed deluge systems are used to protect personnel, process equipment, and buildings from the fire and thermal hazard presented by munition operations such as weighing, pressing, pelletizing, propellant, loading, melting, extrusion, mixing, blending, screening, sawing, granulating, drying and pouring. An ultra high speed deluge system is designed to apply large volumes of water in an extremely short (milliseconds) period of time.
