Firefighting equipment

Foam Proportioners Description

The foam proportioners are used for mixing water at low, medium, or high expansion foam concentrate to feed either portable nozzles or small stationary plants. For the later case, the total flow rate must equal the flow rating of the mixer at its outlet pressure.
They provide an inexpensive foam proportioning means for system requiring fixed flow rates and where available water supply pressures are adequate. The pressure drop across the foam proportioner will be approximately 30% of the supply line pressure, for this reason the typical operating pressure at the inlet of the foam proportioner should be between 5 - 8 bar (72.5.5 - 116 psi) depending on the model.

Low Expansion Foam System Description

Low expansion foam has an expansion of up to 20:1.
The advantage of low expansion foam compared to the other type of foam is the greater throw range and superior cooling effect, heat resistance and burn back resistance achieved by the higher water content. This characteristic make difficult to build up great depth of foam and can cause severe water damage in warehouse etc.
The most common systems to disburse the low expansion foam include the foam branch pipe and the foam nozzle.

Medium Expansion Foam System Description

Medium expansion foams are aggregations of bubbles that are mechanically generated by the passage of air or other gases through a net, screen, or other porous medium that is wetted by an aqueous solution of surface active foaming agents. Under proper conditions, fire-fighting foams of expansions from 20:1 to 200:1 can be generated.
These foams provide a unique agent for transporting water to inaccessible places; for total flooding of confined spaces; and for volumetric displacement of vapour, heat, and smoke. Optimum efficiency in any type of hazard depends to some extent on the rate of application and the foam expansion and stability.

High Expansion Foam System Descritption

A detailed analysis of cases of fires in recent years shows that not always the traditional fire-fighting systems, which mainly use water or low or medium expansion foam ensure the effectiveness of any intervention.
The main cause of this failure is due to the inability for that solution to reach quickly the fire source, in some cases, the presence of explosive dust or chemical gas during combustion makes the standard protection systems not valid.

High-expansion foam systems operate in a combined action on fire, creating a layer of foam that carries water at the point where the heat is developed and the congestion in the area of risk smothers the fire, removing toxic vapors and particles developed during combustion.
