The use of Fluorine Free Foam is the most effective way to extinguish fires with the application of foam smothering the fire, cutting the oxygen supply, and cooling the area to prevent reignition. Importantly, Fluorine Free Foam will also assist in extinguishing any ground fires that may have ignited under the machinery.
Unlike powder suppressant systems, Fluorine Free Foam does not cause a powder cloud when activated therefore reducing the risk of an operator’s vision being impaired whilst trying to safely evacuate from the machine. Fluorine Free Foam also allows for easy clean up and does not have the corrosive risk of powder suppressants.
Each system design is undertaken with customer consultation and thorough risk assessment and analysis to ensure optimum coverage of all risk areas and hazards such as fuel and ignition sources. All system installations are backed up with FSI 24-hour technical support along with full service and maintenance plans to ensure that systems are maintained in accordance with FSI procedures.
