Fires can be very hazardous and hard to put out. Recently, two US engineering students have been prototyping a way to put out fires with sound. This is a non-destructive and cautious way to extinguish blazes.

Two engineering students in the US established a new type of extinguisher that uses sound waves to put out fires. The invention offers a relatively non-destructive method of fire control, which could find applications in fighting small fires in the home, and the researchers now hold a preliminary patent application for their device in both chemical and water-free settings.

Drown Forest Fire in Sound

Heretofore, sound waves can stride oxygen and fire through pressure from their vibrations. This particular frequency of sound wave works to distinguish the flame molecules from the surrounding oxygen, effectively starving the fire and snuffing out the flame.

Sound Waves Fire Extinguisher

As the concept of extinguishing fires with waves is not completely new, a handheld extinguisher had yet to be developed and mass-produced for fire extinguishers.

A supplementary use for the sound wave extinguisher could be outer space, where fire poses a huge crisis. Since traditional extinguishers are used for zero gravity spray contents in all ways, as it’s incredibly difficult to target a flame. But since sound waves can be directed without gravity, rather using the bass frequencies could be an ideal solution.
