Foam Fire Extinguisher

[zionhost_shortcodes_title_two heading1=”Foam Fire Extinguisher” heading1_color=”#0769bf”]

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 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 LPM 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:

  1. The cylinder is made of stainless steel.
  2. Trolley Foam Fire Extinguisher is used to suppress the fire that is caused by Class A, Class B, and are used for multi-task fire.
  3. Trolley Foam Fire Extinguisher is easy to operate and only one person is required to operate it.
  4. They are more effective to be used in an industrial environment. Because in factories the fear of fire hazards is more and if the fire disaster happens it requires a large quantity of extinguishing agents to suppress the fire.

  6. Don’t use this fire extinguisher on electric or electronic or gas type fire.

Instructions:

  1. Do not use if the pressure indicator enters the red section.
  2. Do not use outside the specified temperature range.

Portable Foam Fire Extinguisher:

Portable fire extinguishers discharge the extinguishing agent that suppresses the fire by covering the flames with a thick layer of foam. The foam cuts off the supply of oxygen and extinguishes the fire. When there is a lack of oxygen, it stops the chemical reaction and the fire cannot continue to burn. It consists of two containers. The outer container contains water. The central container contains a foam solution and carbon dioxide charge. When we compress the handle of the extinguisher, the agent is discharged from the nozzle. Hose clips, squeeze for action handle and carrying handle are made up of stainless steel. Stainless steel prevents these parts from corrosion, starches, and then help in the maintenance. Portable foam fire extinguishers are reliable. They are suitable for use when they are readily accessible so that they can be used immediately. The foam is basically a blend of perfluorinated and hydrocarbon surfactants. It is an ideal Class B fire. It is best suited when the fire is caused by flammable liquids such as petrol. Portable fire extinguishers require regular checking.
