AFFF foam concentrates are designed espmua rapid fire knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film which spreads across the surface of the fuel, separating the fuel from oxygen. Be the first to review this product! It may also be stored and used as a premixed solution in fresh water only.
The foam concentrate has a dramatically reduced viscosity that enhances performance in all types of foam proportioning equipment including inline eductors, balanced pressure systems, and built-in systems aboard CFR vehicles.
Regardless of the fuel type, a foam blanket is formed which excludes oxygen and from which drains the liquids that form the film or the polymeric membrane. As a participant, you will be The shipping weight of these pails is pounds This product hasn’t received any reviews yet.
The water content of the foam provides a cooling effect. Typical installations include foam water sprinkler systems, aircraft hangars, loading racks, process areas and aircraft rescue and firefighting ARFF or other manual firefighting applications where polar solvent fuels are not encountered.
Ansulite™ 3% AFFF MIL-SPEC Concentrate (AFC-3MS), 55 gallon (208 liter) drum
Typical applications include oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, refineries and tank farms, alternative fuel facilities, warehouses, municipal fire service, and many others. This item is also available 5-gallon pails item as well as gallon totes item There are three fire extinguishing mechanisms in effect when using the concentrates on either a conventional Class B hydrocarbon fuel such as gasoline or diesel fuel, or a Class B polar solvent water miscible fuel such as methanol or acetone.
However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, care must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface. If frozen, the concentrate can be thawed and remixed before use. Turn on more accessible mode Turn off more accessible mode Skip to main content.
Aer-O-Lite is suitable for use with most types of proportioning and discharge equipment. Water hardness should not exceed ppm expressed as calcium and magnesium.
This film or membrane forms a barrier to help prevent the release of fuel vapor. An aqueous film is formed in the case of a conventional hydrocarbon fuel, or a polymeric membrane in the case of a polar solvent fuel. Sign in or Create an account. All prices are in USD. This is accomplished by allowing the foam solution to quickly drain from the foam bubble which in turn, affects long term sealability and burnback resistance.
They may also be used and stored as a pre-mixed solution in only fresh, potable water. We promise to never spam you, and just use your email address to identify you as a valid customer. The aqueous film is produced by the fluorocarbon surfactant reducing the surface tension of the foam solution to a point where the solution can be supported by the surface tension of the fuel.
To provide even greater fire protection capability, it may be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application.
AR-AFFF exhibits the best cross-functional performance for flame knock-down, burnback resistance, extended vapor suppression, manufacturing and proportioning consistency, and the longest potential shelf life. However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, care must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface when using the twin agent method on polar solvent fuels.

Because of the low energy to make foam, it can be used with both aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices. Below are the available bulk discount rates for each individual item when you purchase a certain amount. Come visit us at the FDIC, booth Because of the low energy required to make foam, they can be used with both aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices.
It may also be used in conjunction with dry chemical agents to provide even greater fire suppression performance.

Write your review here: They contain no PFOS. They are transported and stored as a concentrate to provide ease of use and considerable savings in weight and volume. When these foam agents are applied to a water soluble fuel such as methyl alcohol, a polymeric membrane is formed between the foam and the epuma soluble fuel. The effectiveness of the aqueous film is directly influenced by the surface tension of the fuel.
To provide even greater fire protection capability, both agents may be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application. Full performance and technical specifications are available in the Ansul data sheet for this product.

If you need rush delivery or delivery outside this area, you can contact us before ordering, otherwise, we will contact you with the actual freight costs before processing your order. Intended for Class B fires, their excellent wetting characteristics make them useful in combating Class A fires as well.
If stored below the minimum use temperature, freezing may occur. While early alcohol-resistant foams were based on mixtures of protein foams and chemicals called metal soaps, the most current alcohol-resistant concentrates are based on AFFF concentrates to which a water soluble polymer polysaccharide has been added. To provide even greater fire protection capability, it can be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application. This concentrate can be used on either conventional Class B fuels or the polar solvent type Class B fuels.
To provide even greater fire protection capability, it can be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application to provide even greater fire protection capability.
The concentrate has excellent wetting properties that can effectively combat Class A fires as well.
