Be the first to review this product! However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, esouma must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface when using the twin agent method on polar solvent fuels.
Class B Polar Solvents (AR-AFFF)
This film or membrane forms a avff to help prevent the release of fuel vapor. While early alcohol-resistant foams were based on mixtures of protein foams and chemicals called metal soaps, the most current alcohol-resistant concentrates are based on AFFF concentrates to which a water soluble polymer polysaccharide has been added.
If you need rush delivery or delivery outside this area, you can contact us before ordering, otherwise, we will contact you with the actual freight costs before processing your order. Full performance and technical specifications are available in the Ansul data sheet for this product. The foam concentrate has a dramatically reduced viscosity that enhances performance in all types of foam proportioning equipment including inline eductors, balanced pressure systems, and built-in systems aboard CFR vehicles.

Aer-O-Lite is suitable for use with most types of proportioning and discharge equipment.
This product hasn’t received any reviews yet. Please enable scripts and reload this page. When these foam agents are applied to a water soluble fuel such as methyl alcohol, a polymeric membrane is formed between the foam and the water soluble fuel.
Typical installations include foam water sprinkler systems, aircraft hangars, loading racks, process areas and aircraft rescue and firefighting ARFF or other manual firefighting applications where polar solvent fuels are not encountered. The effectiveness of the aqueous film is directly influenced by the surface tension of the fuel.
The water content of the foam provides a cooling effect. To provide even greater fire protection capability, it can be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application. It may also be used in conjunction with dry chemical agents to provide even greater fire suppression performance.

The aqueous film is produced by the fluorocarbon surfactant reducing the surface tension of the foam solution to a point where the solution can be supported by the surface tension of the fuel.
As a participant, you will be among To provide even greater fire protection capability, it may be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application.
The concentrate has excellent wetting properties that can effectively combat Class A fires as well.
AR-AFFF Foam Concentrates
This item is also available 5-gallon pails item as well as gallon totes item edpuma AR-AFFF exhibits affg best cross-functional performance for flame knock-down, burnback resistance, extended vapor suppression, manufacturing and proportioning consistency, and the longest potential shelf life.
They contain no PFOS. AFFF foam concentrates are designed for rapid fire knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film which spreads across the surface of the fuel, separating the fuel from oxygen. Sign in or Create an account.
Intended for Class B fires, their excellent wetting characteristics make them useful in combating Class A fires as edpuma. The shipping weight of these pails is pounds Turn on more accessible mode Turn off more accessible mode Skip to main content.
Typical applications include oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, refineries and tank farms, alternative fuel facilities, warehouses, municipal fire service, and many others. As a participant, you will be Write your review here: They are transported and stored as a concentrate to espima ease of use and considerable savings in weight and volume.
Because of the low energy required to make sspuma, they can be used with both aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices. If frozen, the concentrate can be thawed and remixed before use. Regardless of the fuel type, a foam blanket is formed which excludes oxygen and from which drains the liquids that form the film or the polymeric membrane.
Ansulite™ 3% AFFF MIL-SPEC Concentrate (AFC-3MS), 55 gallon (208 liter) drum
There are three fire extinguishing mechanisms in effect when using the concentrates on either a conventional Class B hydrocarbon fuel such as gasoline or diesel fuel, or a Class B polar solvent water miscible fuel such as methanol or acetone. To provide even greater fire protection capability, both agents may be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application.
However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, care must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface. All trademarks shown are the property of their respective owners.
