About Foam System
As fire is made of three elements (referred to as the Fire Triangle) – fuel, heat, and oxygen, isolation of oxygen from the fire and fuel results in an extinguished fire. This process of isolation is carried out by the Fire Protection Foam System.
As soon as a fire is detected through the Foam Sprinkler, water starts to accumulate into the bladder tank where it meets the foam concentrate poured via the Proportioner. The Proportioner monitors and makes sure the desired foam is made through the amalgamation of water and the right ratio of foam concentration.
This foam passes through the pipes under pressure and directly on the fuel or fire, through the Sprinkler. The foam masks the fuel like a blanket and isolates the oxygen. The Fire Triangle is now cracked.
Yes. There are two types of it namely as Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) and Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Concentrates (AR-AFFF) .
- Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF): This is a high-quality foam. It is popularly used in, refineries, airports, and manufacturing plants. They can be used in a variety of mediums; they are hence very versatile.
- Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Concentrates (AR-AFFF): It is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires and with the addition of special polymers, it is also highly effective against polar solvents.
A Water Spray System is used to regulate the rapid spread of fire in a short period. They are an essential requirement in places like transformers, LPG bullets, and combustible fuels. Here are some frequently asked questions.know More
Foam Firefighting System is a special automated fire protection system made for electrical or petroleum-based fires. These fires if dismissed with water could result in its extensive spread. Here are some frequently asked questions.know More
Firefighting Hydrant Systems are the most used in many residential and industrial projects. Being easily distinguished through its “Red” color pipe, these systems can shoot water right up to the 8th floor blazing with fire. Here are some frequently asked questions.know More
Fire Alarm System
Fire Detection System / Fire Alarm System (FAS) is a wake-up alarm that gets activated either in industrial or residential spaces. Here are some frequently asked questions.know More
Gas Suppression System
Fire Protection Gas Suppression System or Automatic Fire Suppression System is relatively a new technology in India. It uses gas to extinguish fire versus the conventional method of using water. This puts out the fire within a minute, automatically. Check out some frequently asked questions.know More
