Low Expansion Foam Branch Pipes

DESCRIPTION

NAFFCO Foam Branch pipes are air aspirated nozzles for application of foam solution. They have been developed to combine superior throw with the ability to produce stable, cohesive foam. The unique design of these branch pipes results in the required expansion of the foam, ensures proper mixing in the tube & at the same time provides higher velocity to the emerging foam stream, giving excellent range.

In-line Foam Inductor

DESCRIPTION

Line Proportioner offers a simple accurate method of proportioning when the water supply pressure is reasonably high. Each proportioner is designed for a set water pressure. However, higher or lower inlet pressure results in an increase or decrease in water flow with a change in proportioning.

Fluoroprotein Foam (FP) Concentrate

DESCRIPTION

NAFFCO FLUOROFOAM is a fluoroprotein foam concentrate containing C6 flourinated surfactants in a carefully formulated protein foam liquid base. This ensures the production of a stabilised fluid foam which will cover a burning hydrocarbon fuel surface very rapidly. The water soluble fluorosurfactant makes the foam hydrocarbon repellent and reduces the amount of burning particles absorbed by the foam in fighting the hydrocarbon fuel fires. Once fire extinction has been achieved the high stability of the foam blanket ensures against the risk of re-ignition and provides excellent protection against “burn-back” should any inaccessible pockets of fire remains.

Film Forming Fluoroprotein Foam (FFFP) Concentrate

DESCRIPTION

NAFFCO FLUOROFOAM FFFP3AF and FFFP6AF are Film Forming Fluoroprotein Foam concentrates (FFFP) containing hydrolyzed protein and preservatives, together with a blend of fluorinated surfactants to achieve the maximum synergistic effect. The blend of flurochemicals selected is effective in reducing the surface tension of water as well as the interfacial tension between water and oil sufficiently low to give stable film on the surface of the fuel and as a result produce fire extinguishing rates superior to those obtained with synthetic based compounds.
