SPRINKLER SYSTEMS

Foam/Chemical Suppression

Foam is used whenever there is a possibility of a liquid fire. The Foam will mix with water and then expand over the liquid that is on fire, cool the fire, and will finally suffocate it.

A foam water fire sprinkler system is a special application system, discharging a mixture of water and low expansion foam concentrate, resulting in a foam spray from the sprinkler. These systems are usually used with special hazards occupancies associated with high challenge fires, such as flammable liquids, and airport hangers.  Operation is as described above, depending on the system type into which the foam is injected.

Used in:

  • Flammable Liquid Storage
  • Loading Racks
  • Processing Areas
  • Refineries
  • Dike Areas
  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Heliports
  • Jet Engine Test Facilities
  • LNG Storage/Manufacturing
  • Marine Applications
  • Warehouses
