Mobile Foam Fire Extinguisher on Trolley
Foam Mobile System
The foam liquid extinguisher on trolley is highly manoeuvrable and it is suitable for outbreaks of fire that cannot be dealt with by using portable extinguishers. It is effective on flammable liquid fire.
This is a self-contained foam production unit which only requires connection to suitable water supply (minimum water supply required is 180 LPM at 5 bar)
Foam Mobile Extinguishers
FlameStop’s Alcohol Resistant mobile extinguishers are suitable for fires that involve flammable and combustible liquids such as petrol, oil and paints (Class B) and combustibles such as paper, textiles, wood, plastics and rubber (Class A). The cylinders are constructed from stainless steel with a red powder coated finish and brass valve.
FlameStop’s superior AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) extinguishers are well suited to tackle Class A fires such as wood, paper and plastics, plus Class B flammable and combustible liquid fires such as oil based fuels, paints and solvents.
The foam used in FlameStop’s AFFF mobile fire extinguishers is C6 compliant.
Some features include:
All units are available in 30L, 50L, 70L and 90L sizes and a choice of hard rubber or pneumatic tyres.
Foam Extinguishers are made of high quality ST14 by means of deep drawing.
Foam Fire Extinguishers are effective on class A & B fire.
Corrosive and impact resistant polyester paint finish (powder coating).
All Extinguishers are coated internally for optimal protection against rust and corrosion.
AFFF is an extinguishing agent which seals the burning surface against ignition.
The valve provided with safety release valve to release the excess pressure.
These extinguishers are manufactured according to International Standards and approved by local civil defence in U.A.E.
Cylinders of different capacity can be supplied upon request.
Foam Fire Extinguishers are available in cream color also.
The low expansion foam quickly blankets the fire and prevents further outbreak
A balanced pressure proportioner guarantees reliable foam mixing from 1-3 % ratio
Foam monitors and portable applicators can be used individually or in conjunction
Fixed foam monitors are used to fight fire from a predetermined safe distance, while portable applicators and nozzles cover shadow areas not reachable by the monitors
Sturdy and compact foam monitors are adjustable and can be used in two modes: jet or fog
It comes in two operating options: manual or remotely controlled with hydraulics
A cost effective solution, keeping both installation and operational costs low
Designed for optimal system performance
Components delivered on modular units reduces installation cost
Minimal and easy maintenance keeps operational cost low Foam Mobile System
Modular skid based units provides easy installation and reduced footprint
Corrosion resistance component materials and coatings provide a robust, low maintenance system
For services purposes, foam concentrate replacements are delivered worldwide
Flexible, high quality and compliant system
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND CONFIGURATION
The Survitec Deck Foam Fire Extinguishing system consists of a fibre glass foam tank, foam pump, proportioner, sturdy and compact foam monitors and portable foam applicators or foam spray nozzles meeting the latest IMO regulations. The system can be delivered as either a central system or independent modular skid units. In a modular design, foam tank, foam pump, proportioner, valves and control panels can be delivered on skid units. All components are constructed in corrosion
resistant materials. The control station is suitably located outside the protected area, adjacent to the areas protected and readily accessible and operable in the event of fire.
The monitors are located along the deck, with two monitors mounted on the poop deck. They can be operated manually or remote hydraulically.The number and spacing of the monitors, foam tank capacity and system pressure/capacity is dependent upon vessel type and the area to be protected. For maximum effectiveness, a balanced pressure proportioner guarantees reliable foam mixing. Foam applicators are provided for Foam Mobile System flexibility during fire fighting on deck areas and to cover areas shielded from monitors.
In machinery spaces
In machinery spaces where a fixed low expansion foam system is fitted in addition to a total flooding system, the system discharges foam through fixed foam spray nozzles. In addition, inductor type portable foam applicators are required.
Foam Mobile System Survitec fixed low expansion foam system can be used for any size of helidecks and helicopter landing areas. It can be a combination of deck integrated pop-up nozzles or fixed foam monitors. In addition, the system consists of hose reels fitted with foam-making branch pipe and non-collapsible hose.
Activation of the system
System is activated from control panel. It can be either an automatically controlled or a manually operated system. For an automatic system two alternatives are available: electric controlled and hydraulic controlled. In case of electric controlled system, valves are electrically actuated, while foam monitors are manually operated. A hydraulically controlled system requires a hydraulic power pack, which is usually installed in the machinery space. Valves and monitors are then hydraulically controlled from a remote location with joystick connected to the control cabinet.
Extinguishing fire using Deck Foam
The fire fighting foam concentrate is a collection of bubbles that consists of water, air and special chemicals. The bubbles float on top of flammable liquids and work to extinguish flammable liquid fires.
Foam Mobile System
The foam blankets on the fuel surface smothering the fi re.
The foam blanket separates the flames/ignition source from the fuel surface.
The foam cools the fuel and any adjacent metal surfaces.
The foam blanket suppresses the release of flammable vapours that can be mixed with air.
Survitec Deck Foam system uses either fluoroprotein or synthetic foam concentrates. Depending on application, it can be alcohol resistant for polar solvent fi res or regular ones for hydrocarbon fi res. Foam concentrates offered are MED, IMO MSC.1/Circ.1312 approved. Some foam liquids are HOCNF and ICAO approved. Based on extreme applications, foam concentrates can be freeze protected down
