Compressed Air Foam is a cost reducing means to extinguishing fires. CAF is generated by the combination of compressed air, water and foam. It uses four times less water and up to six times less foam concentrate compared to foam-water systems.
Apart from the key features, Compressed Air Foam systems also significantly reduce infrastructural requirements:
Compressed Air Foam can eliminate or reduce the size of water supply tanks & fire pumps.
Drainage and Containment
CAF can eliminate or reduce the size of drainage and containment systems including spill tanks and oil separators.
The serious reduction in foam and water required for CAF systems reduces the costs associated to clean-up and disposal of foam during discharge testing or after a fire.
Additional advantages of CAF systems
- The performance in extinguishing is better,
- The burn back resistance is considerably longer.
All SIRON Compressed Air Foam systems are (already 10 years) FM approved and CE certified.
