    Firefighting foam is a foam used for fire role is to cool the fire and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the -fighting foam was invented by the Russian engineer and chemist Aleksandr Loran in The surfactants used must produce foam in concentration of less than 1%. Other components of fire-retardant foams are.   AFFF foam concentrate are designed for rapid fire knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film which helps to prevent the release of fuel vapours. The foam blanket, from which the film forming liquid drains separates oxygen from the fuel surface, extinguishes the fire and prevents re-ignition. The water content of the foam provides a cooling effect.

    KV-LITE AFFF is Aqueous Film Forming Foam concentrate (AFFF) has characteristic of film forming, due to which flame is rapidly knocked down & sealing of fuel surface is achieved. KV-LITE AFFF is formulated with Fluorinated surfactants, hydrocarbon surfactants and stabilisers to give best performance and long shelf life. Film Forming Fluoroprotein Foam - combines the qualities of fluoroprotein foam with those of aqueous film forming foam. The rate of application of class B foam varies depending on what 5 variables? 1. Type of foam concentrate 2. Whether or not the fuel is on fire 3. Type of fuel 4.

Aqueous film-forming foam. Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) is a synthetic mixture containing hydrocarbon-based surfactants and fluorinated surfactants with the ability to rapidly extinguish hydrocarbon fuel fires. It is mainly used in civil and military aviation, and oil industries.

Aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) is a highly efficient type of fire suppressant agent, used by itself to attack flammable liquid pool fires, and in conjunction with Halon to attack fires in Navy vessel machinery spaces. Gaseous halon replacements for machinery spaces will likewise operate in conjunction with AFFF systems.

Aqueous Film Forming Foam Concentrates. Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrates are formulated with hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon surfactants to produce high-performance, synthetic firefighting foams for use on non-polar, Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as crude oil, petroleum, diesel and aviation fuels.

Recognize and Identify the hazardous materials Aqueous film forming foam. * Scope. A Fire-fighting foam is an aggregate of air-filled bubbles formed from aqueous solutions and is lower in density than flammable liquids. It is used principally to form a cohesive floating blanket on flammable and combustible liquids and prevents or extinguishes fire by excluding air and cooling the fuel.

It also prevents reignition by suppressing formation of flammable vapors. File Name: Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) Use and Discharge Effective Date: 12 DEC Document Owner: EMD. All testing of AFFF fire fighting equipment will be performed using non-hazardous dyes and directed toward areas not immediately accessible to storm runoff drains.

Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) have been an integral component of a firefighter’s arsenal for many years. Whether synthetic or protein based, these foams are found at mine sites, ships, airports, defence facilities and facilities that use or store large volumes. Aqueous film forming foam - Alcohol resistant concentrate The 1x1 NV is a Newtonian liquid based on specially selected hydrocarbon / fluorocarbon surfactants and does not contain any polymer that makes general ARC type foam concentrates viscous.

Its high fluidity makes the induction easier and accurate through both portable and fixed inline. Importantly, all Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) products contain PFAS (ITRC ). So far as this guidance document is concerned, the focus is on PFAS-containing AFFF, Alcohol Resistant AFFF (AR-AFFF), and fluoroprotein foam; the foam’s potential to be a hazard to.

A. Aqueous Film Forming Foam, or AFFF, is a fire -fighting agent used commercially and by the Department of Defense, including the Air Force.

Most commonly used to combat petroleum fires in aircraft accidents, hangars and during live-fire training exercises, AFFF was found to contain. Despite growing concerns about human exposure to perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS), other poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) derived from aqueous film-forming foams (AFFFs) have garnered little attention.

While these other PFASs may also be present in AFFF-impacted drinking water, their removal by conventional drinking-water treatment is. 3 Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) continued Figure 1.
