Fomtec P 3% firefighting foam is a protein foam produced from a carefully controlled blend of hydrolised protein, foam boosters, stabilisers and preservatives.
Fomtec P 3% is protein foam produced from a carefully controlled blend of hydrolised protein, foam boosters, stabilisers and preservatives. This ensures the production of stabilised fluid foam. Foam produced by foam making equipment is tough, stable, heat resistant and covers the burning hydrocarbon fuel surface rapidly. 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 remain.
Fomtec P 3% should be used as a 3% proportioned solution in fresh or sea water. The correct proportioning or mixture ratio is 3 parts of concentrate and 97 parts of water.
Fomtec P 3% is intended for use on B class hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, petroleum and aviation fuels. Fomtec P 3% can be applied directly onto the fire surface.
Fire Performance & Foaming
The fire performance of this product has been measured and documented according to “International Approvals” stated in this document. The foaming properties are depending on equipment used and other variables such as water and ambient temperatures. Average expansion 7:1, average ¼ drainage time 04:15 minutes using UNI 86 test nozzle.’
Fomtec P 3% can easily be proportioned at the correct dilution using conventional equipment such as:
- Inline inductors
- Balanced pressure, variable flow proportioning systems
- Bladder tanks
- Around the pump proportioning systems
- Water turbine driven foam proportioners
- Self inducting branch pipes and nozzles
