The article reports that smoothbore nozzle are the effective and potential designed for delivering compressed-air foam system in the U.S. The development of sprinkler system separates the smoothbore stream of water into a droplet form which is suitable for effective fire prevention method. Nozzle is described as the mechanic method in processing droplets of water smoothbore stream. It shows that through this kind of air foam solution it reduced the heat-absorbing quality of the surface.
