What Is a Foam Fire Suppression System?
High expansion, medium expansion, and low expansion wet foam are all types of clean agent fire extinguishing systems. The higher the expansion rate, the lighter the foam and the larger space it can fill. We’ll help you determine which type of foam is best for your application.
Three components make up fire suppression foam: concentrated foam, water, and air. When combined in the correct proportions and discharged through strategically located nozzles, these ingredients create a homogeneous foam blanket, which is effective against flammable and combustible liquids. Foam fire suppression systems are designed to discharge automatically when a fire is detected.
How Does Foam Fire Suppression Work?
Fire needs three things to burn: heat, fuel, and oxygen. If any of these elements is missing, the flames go out. Fire-suppressing foam works to disrupt all three:
- The water content in the foam cools the flammable liquid and all surrounding surfaces.
- The foam floats atop the flammable liquid, cutting off this fuel source from the flames.
- The foam smothers the fire, separating it from the oxygen in the room and preventing the release of vapors that could ignite in the air.
Where Is Foam Fire Suppression Used?
Water alone is an ineffective fire extinguishing solution for any business that utilizes, stores, or transports flammable liquids, including gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and jet fuel. These unique hazards require fire suppression foam. Call Fire Guys NY to install this equipment if you work in any of these businesses:
- Processing plants
- Aircraft hangers and heliports
- Boats and marinas
- Jet engine test facilities
- Dike areas
