Technology: Compressed air foam vs foam water UL162 test
Compressed air foam key features are four times less water and up to six times less foam concentrate and reduced infrastructural requirements:
ICAF can eliminate or reduce the size of water supply tanks and fire pumps.
Drainage and containment
ICAF can eliminate or reduce the size of drainage and containment systems including spill tanks and oil separators.
The significant reduction in foam and water required for ICAF reduces the costs associated to clean-up and disposal of foam during discharge testing or after a fire.
