Businesses and homes are destroyed. Precious natural resources are consumed. Too often, man’s greatest ally becomes man’s greatest enemy.Our weapons are weak or, worse, as dangerous to our environment in the long-term as the fire itself is in the short term.
PYROCOOL Technologies has developed a firefighting agent that will change forever the way fires are fought. The agent, PYROCOOL TM, is a sophisticated formulation, which employs advanced scientific technologies to destroy the ability of fire to exist.
By dramatically eliminating the heat component of the traditional fire triangle, PYROCOOL stops the combustion process. It does so quickly, economically and, as importantly, without damage to the environment.
PYROCOOL technologies has rejected time-worn theories and conventional thinking. We reject the idea that some problems just can’t be solved. With PYROCOOL, WE have crossed the threshold into the 21st Century.
PYROCOOL reduces the fire site temperature immediately. In field tests against a 2100º F fuel fire, PYROCOOL dropped the fire site temperature by over 2000º F in 15 seconds. Adjacent metal surfaces could be touched with a bare hand immediately after the fire was extinguished.
PYROCOOL’s amazing cooling effects allow the firefighter virtually immediate access to the fire source, eliminating the minutes, and sometimes hours, normally needed to bring a fire under control. High temperatures will no longer keep the firefighter at bay. The advantage of this feature alone cannot be overstated and no other product can provide this protection.
PYROCOOL is mixed with water at an astonishingly low 0.4% ratio, so it takes only 4 gallons of PYROCOOL to treat 1000 gallons of water. Water usage, especially important in dry climates, is cut by up to 60%.
The PYROCOOL® products can be mixed with water using conventional “in-line” eductors or around-the-pump-systems. The application methods are similar to that of conventional foams; however, because of PYROCOOL®‘s outstanding cooling properties, firefighters are often able to approach fires faster, but in safety.

For many years Ultra Fog AB has specialized in the development of products and systems for safer fire-protection and fire-fighting systems for on board and on shore facilities.
At the start, in the 1980’s, Ultra Fog AB participated in developing so-called “passive fire-protection”. This resulted in the automatically operated systems for opening and closing fire-doors to optimize the fire class rate of the doors.
From 1991, Ultra fog AB focused on the on the active variant of fire-protection, the high pressure waterfog system, ULTRA FOG, iN THE autumn of 1991, Ultra Fog received the first order for this system from Stena Line.
The installation was carried out in the spring of 1992.
The first tests for public areas on board were performed in April 1992.
It is our conviction at Ultra Fog AB, that in order to get good and safe fire-protection, bath passive and active fire-protection measures should be in harmony. We also in the importance of an early triggering of the active fire-protection system in the fire-fighting position.
This will save lives and reduce material damage.
Areas where Ultra Fog systems act as an active fire-fighting system:
Public areas, cabins, corridors, staircases, storages, kitchens, service areas, hotel rooms, offices, laboratories, historical locations, computer rooms, engine spaces, work shops, electrical rooms, pump rooms, machineries, deep fryers, ventilation ducts, and many more possibilities.
