FOAM EXTINGUISHING FOR CONTAINERS

Or more precisely:

FOAM EXTINGUISHING FIXTURES AND DEVICES FOR UPRIGHT CYLINDRICAL CONTAINERS
FOR FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS AND FOR HIGHLY FLAMMABLE AND EXPLOSIVE CONTAINERS

Mineral oil and its derivatives, as well as flammable liquids are stored in upright cylindrical containers with volumes of 50-120,000 cubic meters. A potential fire or explosion in the container poses an overwhelming hazard not only for the storage plant, but may also threaten the surrounding area with destruction. 1,200,000 litres of fire hazard! The intensive technical developments of the past 20 years, characterised by an increase in container sizes and by the evolution of a new closed technology for the storage and handling of materials, have greatly increased this potential hazard.

Foam extinguishing for containers

Fire extinguishing systems must use inspected and authorised devices everywhere. Sprinkler-1 llc fully meets the needs of all countries, regions, and insurance companies, and offers efficient and reliable devices of a guaranteed high technical standard, most of which are more advanced with regard to one or more aspects, than other products available on the world market. We offer these products partly on this page of our homepage, and partly on the page about other fire extinguishing devices. In addition, our design guidelines on our Customer Service page provide help for the work of designers, constructors and clients.
On the following diagram we have indicated the recommended devices on the outline of a stationary foam extinguishing system.

STATIONARY FOAM EXTINGUISHING SYSTEM FOR UPRIGHT CYLINDRICAL CONTAINERS

TRADITIONAL APPLICATION - SEMI-STATIONARY EXTINGUISHING SYSTEM

Upright cylindrical containers of flammable liquids were traditionally protected with semi-sttatinary foam extinguishing systems, but this is also the standard configuration currently in the Middle-East and in many other places. Sprinkler-1 Kft. [llc] also offers devices for this. The extinguishing system is based on a network of pipes consisting of dry lines integrated with a foam jet pipe, fastened within a spandrel. Traditionally this can be used to stop a fire by connecting a fire-fighting vehicle, or by delivering the appropriately proportioned foam into the protection pit.
The role of a semi-stationary foam extinguishing system is to enable the fire department to inundate the burning container and its protection ring with foam, after connecting their foam-based fire-fighting vehicle to the system, once they have arrived on site, following the occurrence and the detection of the fire.
The built-in pump of the fire-fighting vehicle's jet ensures the proportional mixing of the foam generating substance with water (foam solution) that is required for the operation of the system, and provides the necessary pressure to pump it into the system.
The fast detection of the fire and the circumscribing of its source, as well as rapid intervention by the fire-fighting unit, are of crucial importance for stopping the fire.
