THE NEWEST INNOVATION IN
WATER MIST FIRE SUPPRESSION
In 2015 Fike launched DuraQuench, a low-pressure pumped water mist system which connects directly to a building’s water main or reservoir to provide unlimited fire suppression.
The next evolution of this revolutionary, cost-effective water mist technology will soon be available with the Fike DuraQuench Pro!
Fike will introduce this new system at the 2023 NFPA Conference June 19-23 in Las Vegas, NV.
The smaller and more efficient DuraQuench Pro offers reliable, eco-friendly fire suppression that avoids current market forces around chemical agents, the AIM Act, PFAS, etc., and the damaging effects of a traditional discharged sprinkler system in environments with mission-critical assets and invaluables.
Differences with DuraQuench vs DuraQuench Pro
- The new pump skid is smaller and lighter (approximately half the size and weight of the first generation DuraQuench), ideal for rooms where space is at a premium.
- By making DuraQuench Pro smaller and more efficient, it is now priced more cost effectively than ever before!
- DuraQuench Pro has been expanded into 111 GPM and 155 GPM models to minimize the need for multiple pump skids.
- DuraQuench Pro components come pre-piped and factory installed – just connect a potable water source into the pump skid, the outlets into the pipe network, the controller to the releasing panel, and DuraQuench Pro is ready!
- Component upgrades have been made throughout the pump skid, including a new stainless steel strainer for better filtration of inlet water, a user-friendly Tornatech Pump Controller, and a new thermal relief valve and pressure relief valve.

Fike’s DuraQuench pumped water mist system brings the benefits of water mist fire suppression within reach of most budgets and over the widest possible range of applications.
The heart of the DuraQuench system is a skid-mounted pump, electric motor and pump controller that can be directly connected to a building’s water supply or to a tank or reservoir. When connected to a building’s water supply, DuraQuench can provide an unlimited discharge duration – something not possible with “containerized” water mist systems. Used with the appropriate machinery space or light hazard nozzle, the DuraQuench pump can protect nearly unlimited volumes with 75% less water than a conventional sprinkler system, and at much lower cost than other water mist systems.

The DuraQuench™ Water Mist System: If you are going to use a water-based system, use the best water mist system out there, the newly FM Approved Fike DuraQuench™. This system utilizes Closed Head automatic nozzles, including uprights for subfloor protection. This means only the nozzle nearest the heat/fire will discharge mist. If discharged,
the amount of mist can be over 80% less compared to the water from a sprinkler preaction system. Provides 3D protection, can possibly reach permeating obscured flames that may be unreachable by typical sprinkler preaction systems. Clean mist = less clean-up time and no contamination like dirty sprinkler water. This in turn leads to much less down time! The data center protection system can operate as a wet pipe system, non-interlocked preaction system, or a single- interlocked preaction system.
C-EL-PA PreAction Water Mist System Valve
The C‐EL‐PA Pre‐Action control valve is a robust and reliable deluge, angle positioned, pilot control valve created entirely in stainless steel (316L), capable of functioning under harsh conditions and designed to be connected to systems where no corrosion is allowed. The valve is designed for operating in closed dry systems as a zone valve. The valve trim provides two methods of system activation which includes a manual release lever and electrical release through a 24 VDC impulse solenoid valve. The impulse solenoid valve is designed to hold the valve in the open position once active. The valve will remain in the open position until a reverse polarity voltage is applied to the impulse solenoid allowing the C‐EL valve to close.
DuraQuench™ Water Mist System Applications
Light Hazard Occupancies
The DuraQuench system is designed for the protection of light hazard occupancies such as offices, classrooms, churches, libraries, hotels and museums. DuraQuench is the ideal solution when the prospect of collateral water damage is a primary concern, or when existing water supplies are not adequate for a conventional sprinkler system.
Manufacturing and Processing
DuraQuench is an ideal system for protecting the wide array of hazards found in a manufacturing or processing plant. From transformer rooms and the production floor, to office spaces and common areas. Using the K6 machinery space nozzle, the OH-VSO light hazard nozzle, and selector valves, multiple hazard types can be protected with one DuraQuench pump.
Utilities, municipalities and independent power producers cannot afford unplanned generator downtime. DuraQuench provides fast-acting, environmentally sound fire-suppression for generators, turbines and pump and lubrication rooms.
