Good Selection of Foam Fire Suppression Systems
There are a number of situations where water or carbon dioxide are not the most appropriate or effective extinguishing agents. When flammable liquids catch fire, it is important to use an extinguisher that is capable of covering the entire fire, without causing it to spread further. In the case of petroleum-based liquids, for example, water is of little value because it is denser than the fuel, and thus immediately sinks beneath it, then the suppression agent evaporates due to the heat, causing the burning oil to spread further, and faster. In these sorts of circumstances, foam or dry chemical fire suppression systems are more suitable options.
Foam Fire Suppression Systems Have Several Benefits
Foam or dry chemical systems work by covering the burning material with a layer that is impermeable to oxygen. Deprived of its oxygen supply (one of the requirements for a fire to thrive) the fire will quickly die down. Both types of systems are lightweight to use, and cost-effective. This allows them to provide an optimal solution for niche environments where a prompt, effective response to fire is essential.
