The extinguishing mechanisms of FIRECHEM  HiEx Foam Generator (FCH* -250) involve a combination of the following:

  • Free air movement necessary for continued combustion is reduced.
  • Water content of the foam being converted to steam dilutes the oxygen concentration to a level below that necessary to support combustion.
  • Cooling to a temperature below the combustion point or auto- ignition temperature of Class A or Class B fuels occurs as water is converted to steam.
  • Reduced surface tension of the foam solution draining from expanded foam penetrates into Class A materials extinguishing deep seated fires.
  • Insulating and heat reflective properties of the foam blanket provide a heat shield preventing fire spread extinguishing deep seated fires.

With this you can virtually fight any type of fire.

FOAM

FIRECHEM Foam type extinguisher is used for Classes A & B fires. Foam spray extinguishers are not recommended for fires involving electricity, but are safer than water if inadvertently sprayed onto live electrical apparatus. FIRECHEM has two types of Foam type Fire Extinguishers which are stored pressure type and cartridge type.

Wet chemical extinguishers are designed for use on Class K/F fires involving cooking oils and fats, such as lard, olive oil, sunflower oil, maize oil and butter. It is extremely effective as the wet chemical rapidly knocks the flames out, cools the burning oil and chemically reacts to form a soap- like solution, sealing the surface and preventing re-ignition. Independent fire tests have established that it is capable of extinguishing a fire in a deep fryer.

The extinguisher is easy to use producing a gentle but highly effective spray. The gentle application helps prevent hot oil splashing onto the user. An added benefit is that they are also suitable for use on free burning materials ( Class A ) such as wood paper and fabrics and are also effective on flammable liquids ( Class B ).

FLAME  -O – GUARD – DC

In the event of fire, the water-borne Flame -O-Guard -C fire protection coating for electrical cables form an insulating layer which delays short-circuiting and prevents spread of flame, thus maintaining the supply of electricity for a prolonged period of time.

DUST SUPRESSION AGENTS

Application of these products not only ensure dust control as required by the mining and environmental laws but in doing so effectively, it may ensure higher productivity and economy of operations. More and more mining projects, powder houses, cement plants, steel plants etc are going in for these products as a total solution to dust problems.

OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

Dispersants can be an effective oil spill response strategy. They are capable of quickly removing significant quantities of oil from the sea surface by transferring it into the water column where it is broken down by natural processes. Significant environmental and economic benefits can be achieved, particularly when other at-sea response techniques are limited by weather conditions or the availability of resources. This chemical is used to reduce offshore oil pollution. These chemicals contain surface active agents ( surfactants ) in a solvent base, which are absorbed at the oil/water interface and lower the inter facial tension.
