Foams for training and testing of installations and equipment

Training foam concentrates are designed for training with foam equipment and fire extinguishing foam systems. The specific recipes limit the environmental impact to a minimum. The surfactants used are easily and 100% biodegradable. Training foam concentrates may be used with all commercially available low, medium and high-expansion foam installations and equipment. They are not suitable for firefighting operations.

Training Foam-N
is used for training with foam and testing of foam equipment. It is very easily expandable and has reduced foam stability, in order for the foam cover to collapse more quickly. Depending on the desired foam quality, the proportioning rate is 3%-6%.

Training Foam-N 1%
is used for training with foam and testing of foam equipment of highly concentrated foam agents at 1% proportioning rate. It is very easily expandable and has reduced foam stability, in order for the foam cover to collapse more quickly. Depending on the desired foam quality, the proportioning rate is 0.5%-1%.

is a pseudoplastic foam agent for testing or inspecting foam extinguishing systems, induction rates during initial operation, or functionality tests. The viscosity of the test foam is adjustable according to that of the foam concentrate in use. Post use, test foam solution may be flushed into the sewage system, if consultation with sewage plant operators and local authorities has taken place prior to the operation.
