Waste & recycling
The fire risk in recycling facilities arises from the multitude and high fire load of easily flammable solids and liquids of various compositions. Foam agents used here must meet the requirements of a broad range of applications and be capable of transporting the extinguishing water to inaccessible and deep-seated fire sources, such as in landfill fires, or to deprive the fire source of oxygen by covering it.
At locations where no retention of extinguishing water can be ensured and the extinguishing water seeps into the ground, it is particularly important to use an environmentally friendly foam agent that biodegrades completely and without negative effects within a short time, depending on weather conditions and ambient temperature.
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.
vaPUREx® AR 3/3 is a fluorine-free alcohol resistant class B fire extinguishing foam agent for low-, medium- and high-expansion foam applications. Its special combination of polymers supports the formation of a resilient foam lamella. The generated foam displays an exceptional burnback resistance.
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.
