Extinguishers, sprinklers, hoses, even a towel – there are many ways to put out a fire. It really just depends on the situation and the type of fire. Firefighting foam systems suppress fire by separating the fuel from the air. Depending on the type of foam system, this is done in a few different ways:
- Foam covers the fuel surface and smothers the fire.
- The fuel source is cooled by the foam’s water content.
- The foam blanket suppresses the release of flammable vapors that can mix with the air.
Engineered and manufactured fire suppression systems ensure a rapid, thorough, and economical response to fires and spills. Customized to application specifications, our dependable engineered systems include bladder tanks and pump-type balanced-pressure proportioning systems; in-line balanced-pressure proportioning systems; high-expansion foam systems; large dry chemical systems and skids; twin-agent systems and skids; foam trailers; large dry chemical and twin-agent trailers; monitor trailers; aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) pump systems; water-powered AFFF pump skids; foam/water monitors; nozzles; eductors; ratio-flow controllers; foam makers; foam chambers, and specialized proportioning storage and monitor trailers.
Listed high-expansion foam systems provide fire-fighting protection for diverse applications: aircraft hangars; basements; cable tunnels; flammable packaging areas; flammable liquid drum storage areas; hazardous waste facilities; LNG tank farms and loading facilities; mines; roll-paper warehouses; shipboard engine rooms, bilges, and holds; storage buildings; warehouses; and fire breaks. The light, voluminous foam blanket produced by our high-expansion foam systems can quickly obtain great heights, reaching elevated flammable materials (such as on storage racks). The foam blanket efficiently transports small amounts of water to the fire, encapsulating the flammable vapors and causing suppression and extinguishment.
