1 Selecting A FoamPro System

2 153 Class A foam concentrates –NFPA 1150 or US Forest Service Approved Class B foam concentrates –Use of a lower % foam concentrate will increase the discharge capabilities; i.e., 1%x3% versus 3%x6%. –AFFF –AR-AFFF (Viscosity considerations) –Control at each discharge Emulsifiers –Viscosity considerations What Type(s) Of Foam Concentrate Do You Want To Proportion?

3 154 What Are Water/Foam Flow Requirements? What discharges require foam solution? –Pre-connected hand lines, trash lines, etc. –2-1/2” and/or larger discharge(s) –Deck gun or aerial waterway (secondary feed) What are min. & max. GPM requirements of solution? What are min. & max concentrate levels? Properly size proportioner, main waterway check valve and flowmeter

4 155 Class B Foam Sizing Considerations Performance expectations NFPA standards Storage requirements (On and off vehicle) Logistical requirements Concentrate proportioning rates Control at each discharge (AccuMax single or multi-point injection)

5 156 Gallons per minute of foam concentrate required Sizing The Proportioner

6 157 Class A Example Flow requirements –Maximum: One deck gun 500 gpm –Minimum: One 1-1/2” 35 gpm (mop up) Concentrate level requirements –Maximum 1.0% (exposure protection) –Minimum 0.3% (initial attack) Calculate concentrate requirements –Maximum: 500 gpm x 1.0% = 5 gpm –Minimum: 35 gpm x 0.3% =.105 gpm Choose pump and flowmeter from charts
