The FlexiFoam system is ideal for operations when rooms have to be flooded or greater areas have to be covered with foam. The foam generation takes place directly at the location of the fire. Compared to conventional foam generators, there is no inefficient and self-destructive transport of ready foam to the fire area. In addition the FlexiFoam can operate directly in areas filled with smoke. The system is not using the ambient air; clean air for the foam generation is fed through ducts by the fan. Smoke will not affect the foam quality.
Once placed at the scene of fire there are no more personnel in the dangerous area needed for operation. Even when the FlexiFoam is completely covered with foam it produces continuously foam and protects itself from the fire. The air output of the fan can be controlled by the engine / motor speed and thus the expansion ratio can be adjusted continuously.
In an operation with a turntable ladder the foam is generated directly on the platform. The fresh air and the extinguishing agent are fed through hose lines placed on the ladder. Thereby it is possible to produce foam in greater heights or smoke-filled areas and flood the scene of fire directly from above.
The FlexiFoam is connected with ventilation hoses and a suitable duct reducer to a high performance fan. The ventilation hoses are temperature resistant up to 180 °C and due to the inside cooling with fresh air allows the operation near the scene of the fire. The water foam agent mixture is supplied through standard fire hoses and existing premix systems.
