Fire departments must be able to cover a very broad range of operations according to the respective risk situations in their response area. For firefighting with foam agents, this means that extinguishing operations must be feasible for fires of both Class A and Class B 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.
