A functioning business may have all it's necessary ingredients to make the business a success. However, failing to have the necessary fire safety could accidentally bring it all to an abrupt halt.

 
 

 
 
   
Bringing you foam agents of the highest quality for optimal protection.
   
Fest Fire Security's foam systems can extinguish and control virtually any hazard where flammable liquid fires are present. Fire fighting foam is the only agent capable of suppressing vapors and providing visible proof of security.

Foam concentrates
The following foam concentrates are the most commonly used today to suppress and extinguish fires:
   

Protein Foam Concentrate

Prescribed for extinguishment of fires on hydrocarbon fuels, manufactured by hydrolysis of granulized keratin protein. They form a stable mechanical foam blanket that has unprecedented heat resistance, burnback and drainage properties. Foam stabilizers and inhibitors are incorporated to prevent corrosion, resist bacterial decomposition, control viscosity and may be used with fresh or sea water. Fest Fire Security offer protein foam as 3% and 6% concentrates.

Fluoroprotein Foam

Fluoroprotein foams have fluorochemical surfactants which provides greater control and extinguishment, fluidity, fast knockdown, exceptional resistance to fuel contamination, and dry chemical compatibility. Prescribed for use on Hydrocarbon fuels and select oxygenated fuel additives. Fest Fire Security offer fluoroprotein foam in 3% concentrate.

Aqueous Film Forming Foam

AFFF’s are a combination of fluorochemical surfactants and synthetic foaming agents. AFFF’s extinguish fires by forming a aqueous coat. This coat is a thin layer of foam solution that spreads rapidly across the surface to provide the fastest possible knockdown on hydrocarbon fuels. Their fluidity allows them to rush around obstacles, wreckage and debris. Fest Fire Security AFFF is available as 1%, 3%, and 6% concentrates or as 1% and 3 % freeze-protected concentrates.

Alcohol-Resistant Concentrates (AR-FFF)

Alcohol Resistant Film-Forming Fluoro is based on AFFF chemistry to which a polymer has been added. ARC’s have exceptional performance characteristics under a wide variety of conditions. The ARC concentrate forms a tough membrane which separates the foam from the fuel and prevents the destruction of the foam blanket. Alcohol-resistant concentrates provides good burnback resistance, knockdown and high fuel tolerance. Fest Fire Security offers various 3x3, 3% and 6% alcohol-resistant concentrates.

High Expansion Foam Concentrates

High expansion foams are based on combinations of hydrocarbon surfactants and solvents. The agent is used in fighting Class A, Class B, and LNG fires both indoors and outdoors. Foam generators can be used to apply in total flooding and three-dimensional applications. Fest Fire Security also offers various high-expansion foam concentrates.

More about foam fire protection
   
What is fire fighting foam
 

Fire Fighting Foam is made up of three ingredients - water, foam concentrate and air. When proportioned with water at the recommended percentage, and administered with conventional air aspirating/non-aspirating fire suppression equipment - foam can form a linkage blanket that is buoyant on incendiary and combustible liquids. Foam suppresses or extinguishes fires by smothering air and rapidly cooling the fuel. It also hinders reiginition by preventing formation of flammable vapors.

 
Why use foam
 
A foam blanket can intercept a fire on a unignited spill.
The suppression of vapors averts them from finding an ignition source.
Foam presents a post-fire security by guarding the hazard until it can be secured or removed.
Formation of a physical barrier against flammable vapors.
Rapid extinguishment

Cools the fuel surface

 
Where can foam agents be used
 

Foam is effective at suppressing vapors and extinguishing Class B fires such as hydrocarbons and polar solvents. These hazards are common to multitude of industries including:

 
Petrochemical
Marine/Offshore Applications
Refineries
Dike Areas
Aircraft Hangers
Helicopters
Jet Engine Test Facilities
Jet Engine Test Facilities
Jet Engine Test Facilities
LNG(liquefied natrual gas) Storage/Manufacturing
Flammable Liquid Storage
Warehouses
