SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND CONFIGURATION
The Survive Deck Foam Fire Extinguishing system consists of a fire glass foam tank, foam pump, proportioned, 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, proportioned, 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 proportioned guarantees reliable foam mixing. Foam applicators are provided for 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 Survive fixed low expansion foam system can be used for any size of spellchecks 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 Foam Mobile 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.
Fire fighting foam extinguishing mechanism:
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 vapors that can be mixed with air.
Survive Deck Foam system uses either fluoroscope 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 ar approved. Some foam liquids are and approved. Based on extreme applications, foam concentrates can be freeze protected down to -45 °C.
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 defense in U.A.E.
Cylinders of different capacity can be supplied upon request.
Foam Fire Extinguishers are available in cream color also.
Foam Fire Extinguisher is a type of fire extinguisher that suppress the fire by cooling down the flames. Foam Fire Extinguisher covers the flames with a thick blanket of foam to suppress the flames. The blanket of foam cuts the supply of oxygen and cools down the flames. The water droplets in the foam cool down the burning substance and extinguish the fire. Foam Fire Extinguisher has a cream label. During the last few years, various transformations occur in the texture of foam used to extinguish the fire. In the original foam fire extinguisher, the texture of the foam was very thick. The foam was very smelly because the foam was made from animal protein. But now foam is made from more advanced material and is more effective than the previous one.
Foam fire extinguishers are available at affordable prices and are easy to use. They are more flexible. They come up with a full package of nozzles, valves, and steel cylinders. They can be refilled when expired.Foam Mobile System
Foam type fire extinguisher is suitable for Class A and Class B fires. Class A fire is the fire that causes fire due to solids such as wood and paper. Class B fire is caused by flammable liquids such as petrol or diesel. They are mostly used to extinguish fire due to flammable liquids. Foam fire extinguishers can be purchased at very affordable rates and are easy to use. they are supplied with a full package of nozzles, valves, and steel cylinder. The nozzles are non-conductors so they can be used for the equipment near live electrical installations. When the fire extinguisher expires it requires refilling.

TROLLEY FOAM FIRE EXTINGUISHER:
Trolley Foam Fire Extinguisher is the first type of foam type fire extinguisher. The foam type fire extinguisher on the trolley is moveable. When the fire cannot be dealt with a portable fire extinguisher, we use a trolley foam fire extinguisher to suppress the fire. This type of foam fire extinguisher requires a supply of water (the minimum water supply required is 180 at 5 bar). Trolley Foam Fire Extinguishers are available in different sizes. They are available in 25kg, 50kg, and 100kg cylinders. A trolley comes up with this fire extinguisher which enables easy mobility. Trolley foam fire extinguisher requires effective protection when it is used to extinguish the fire that spread out on the large area.
The features of the trolley area as following:
