Fire King Foam is used for re suppression. Its role is to cool the re and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the combustion.
The AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) concentrate consisting of uorocarbon and hydrocarbon surfactant blended with various solvents, preservatives and stabilizers.
This foam forms an aqueous lm that quickly cuts o the oxygen supply and thus stopping the re from burning. The foam also forms a stable blanket that suppresses the release of ammable vapours and cools down the fuel surface extinguishing the re and preventing re-ignition.
The FP 3% is a uroprotein foam concentrate containing uorinated surfactant in a carefully formulated protein foam liquid base. This ensures the production of stabilized uid foam which will cover a burning fuel. The water soluble our surfactant makes the foam hydrocarbon repellent and reduces the amount of burning particles absorbed by the foam. Once the re extinction has been achieved the high stability of the foam blanket ensures the prevention of re-ignition.
Both the AFFF and the FP 3% foam are intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel res such as oil, diesel and aviation fuel. The FP 3% can be applied directly onto the re surface and is also suitable for sub surface injection and the AFFF can be used with both aspirating and non aspirating discharge devices. And they are compatible with all dry chemical powder and can be used in powder/ foam twin agent systems.
