Foam Concentrates
Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF)
Back to Top
Features :
Chemguard aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) requires low energy input to produce a high-quality foam blanket that floats on the fuel surface. By quickly covering the fuel surface, AFFF provides fastest knockdown of hydrocarbon fuel fires (gasoline, kerosene, diesel, etc.). AFFF also is effective on Class A fires.

Chemguard AFFF agents provide excellent burn-back performance, superior drain time, and low application rates. Most of our AFFF formulations contain significantly less fluorine content than other UL Listed products on the market, without compromising fire-extinguishment properties.

Biodegradable and environmentally friendly, these agents are available as 1%, 3%, and 6% concentrates for use at the proportioning rate of the product (e.g., 1% would be 1 part concentrate to 99 parts water).

Alcohol Resistant AFFF
Back to Top
Features :
Chemguard alcohol-resistant aqueous film-forming foam (AR-AFFF) creates a physical, polymer-membrane barrier between the foam blanket and the fuel surface.   AR-AFFF suppresses Class B hydrocarbon fires (diesel, gasoline, kerosene, etc.) and polar solvent/water-miscible fuel fires (alcohol, ketones, methanol, and MTBE products). In addition, AR-AFFF suppresses the hazardous vapors emitted from fires or spills of these materials.

Biodegradable and environmentally friendly, AR-AFFF also is effective on Class A fires.

Discharge Devices
Foam Chambers
Back to Top
Features :

Designed to deliver foam directly onto the surface of flammable or combustible liquid and lessen submergence of the foam, Chemguard foam chambers are installed on flammable liquid storage tanks just below the roof joint.  Flow rates for these UL Listed, type 2 discharge devices (NFPA 11), can vary, depending on the application.

Foam solution is supplied to a chamber from outside the hazard area, either from a fixed foam-storage and proportioning system or from a dry-pipe semi-fixed system that receives foam solution from a mobile foam apparatus. Upon entering the chamber the foam solution is expanded and then discharged against a deflector mounted inside the storage tank. The deflector (split or solid) directs the foam against the inside wall of the storage tank, reducing the agitation of the fuel.
