Foam and high-pressure extinguishing

01

Why FoamGiant?

The FoamGiant foam cannon is compact, handheld and fire resistant. It is also compatible with high-pressure extinguishing systems. Up to 8000 liters of foam can be produced from just 100 liters of water, which is an enormous achievement.

foam

Foam is created from a mixture of water, foaming agent and air. During operations, the foam concentrate is mixed with the water and this combination is swirled with air in the foam nozzle to create the foam. The type of foam concentrate used and how the foam is produced depend on the particular application. There are a variety of foam types and foam concentrates that are suitable for different applications.

03

extinguishing effect

Foam has a very low specific gravity. Therefore, it is able to form a closed layer on the surface of the flammable material, even if it is liquid. This barrier layer prevents vapors and gases from escaping and also impedes the supply of oxygen to the fuel.

04

Advantages

Foam has an excellent extinguishing effect on liquid fires. Due to its low density, it floats on the burning liquid and effectively smothers the fire. In addition to its suffocating effect, foam also has a cooling effect.

Thanks to its high mobility, foam can flow around obstacles and penetrate into crevices. This property enables it to flood even areas that are difficult to access and to fight fires effectively.

05

classification

Depending on the expansion number, foam is divided into the following types:
Low expansion foam up to 20
Medium foam over 20 to 200
Lightweight foam over 200

06

Low water consumption

The surface of the water is extremely increased by the atomization of the water. As a result, the water suddenly evaporates when it hits the fire

1 liter of water = 1700 liters of steamf

07

Why high pressure extinguishing?

through theEfficient extinguishing with extremely small amounts of water (approx. 20 liters of water are required to extinguish a vehicle fire):
 

  • Compact, affordable systems that fit in cars and pickups

  • Minimizing water damage in buildings

  • Extinguishing possible in remote areas without water supply
