Water mist Extinguisher

How Do Watermist Extinguishers work?

There is a nozzle on the extinguisher disperses ‘dry’ water mist particles at a microscopic scale (ranging from 50 to 300µm, 50µm (micrometres) is 5/100ths of 1millimeter). 

This ‘dry’ mist fire extinguisher suppresses the fire and extinguishes flames on something that is burning, the water particles are attracted to the fire/heat and then starves the fire of oxygen
