Fire departments must be able to cover a wide range of operations based on the specific hazards in their response area. For foam fire suppression, this means that firefighting operations need to be possible for both Class A and Class B fires to a certain extent.
Fire departments predominantly use synthetic multi-purpose foam agents or Class A foam agents for generating heavy, medium, and light foam, as well as for producing compressed air foam (CAF) and aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), due to their wide range of applications.
vaPUREx® AR 3/3 F-5 #8343 is a highly effective, universal firefighting foam agent for use in critical risk areas where chemicals, polar, or non-polar hydrocarbons are produced, processed, decanted, transported or stored.
Fluorine-free class B fire extinguishing foam agent for low-expansion foam applications at refineries on large non-polar class B fires such as e.g. crude oil, Diesel. It can also be used for ethanol and methanol fires.
