Hey all

I have been musing about the idea of a suppressor with a liquid atomizing injector system operated by the propellant's own expanding gasses. Essentially the gas impulse would push some liquid (water, Novec 1230 etc) into the suppressor where the heat of vaporization would draw the energy out of the explosion. There would be no residue or mess and the suppressant liquid would be reapplied with every shot. This would keep the device cool and operating as long as there was enough liquid in a reserve tank.

It is generally accepted that "Wet" suppressors are quieter than dry, even with modern engineering. The problems with wet suppressors are:
-They dry out
-They wear out within a few shots
-They expel their dampener with every shot
-They are messy

What are the downsides of using a water or other liquid atomizer to absorb the energy of the propellant?
One such option I was looking at is the Novec 1230 fluid used in commercial fire suppression systems. (https://www.3m.com.sg/3M/en_SG/novec-sg/applications/fire-s uppression/)

I don't know, I like the idea, are there any major drawbacks or things that I straight up have wrong that would prevent this from working?

How easy is Novec 1230 to get?  Water's available pretty much anywhere on the planet, shaving cream's available @ your local drugstore 24 hrs.

I've wondered about a CO2 injection system to combat FRP, using ordinary CO2 powerlets.
