Firefighting foam is a foam used for fire role is to cool the fire and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the -fighting foam was invented by the Russian engineer and chemist Aleksandr Loran in The surfactants used must produce foam in concentration of less than 1%.

Other components of fire-retardant foams are. Use of high-expansion foam on a Pennsylvania coal-mine fire / ([Washington, D.C.]: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, []), by T. McDonald and. Two high-pressure pumps supplied water from a dam to the area affected by the fire.

Water in the dam was supplied from a well with provisions to tap into a city water line if needed. Both of these sources were used during the fire described above. (Source: "Use of High Expansion Foam On a Pennsylvania Coal-Mine Fire," U.S.

During the simulations, mine rescue team members donned self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA) and traversed more than m of mine passageways filled with nontoxic smoke.

When this occurs, large areas of burning may go unaddressed or simply left to burn. Fire Solutions, Inc. has been investigating the use of gas-enhanced foam in concert with directional drilling technology. Gas-enhanced foam has the advantage of using less water and adds inert nitrogen gas to displace oxygen to infiltrate and suppress a fire.

high-expansion foam, hydrogel, or foamed gel injection all have a short effective life. In the case of a fire that has been burning for a long time, the fire will re-ignite once the foam, gel, or Author: Dave Hallman.

It involves the formation of a high-expansion noncombustible foam. Large volumes of the foam are drawn or blown over and around the fire until it can no longer be sustained due to lack of oxygen.

It's too dangerous to attack the head directly, fire officials said. Firefighters were able to stop the advancing flames deep in the canyon at about noon Friday with fire-retardant foam, which was sprayed around homes in Green Valley.

"They were able to turn the corner on that, which is good news," Forest Service spokeswoman Kathy Peterson said.

Foam. For dust control, foam works better than water. It provides dust reductions of 20% to 60% compared to water. Foam also can produce similar results at lower water use, that is, the amount of water needed to make the foam is less than the equivalent water spray.

Seibel [] compared high-expansion foam to water sprays at a belt transfer 5/5(1). High expansion aqueous foam is an aggregation of bubbles that has the appearance of soap suds and is used to isolate individuals both visually and acoustically. It was developed in the 's in England to fight coal mine fires and has been widely used since for fire fighting and dust suppression.

Firefighters finally were able to extinguish the blaze by using a high-expansion, all-purpose foam to smother the fire.

The foam generating and broadcasting equipment will be com- pact and light-weight, and the harvesting and liquid sub-systems will be designed to be easily transportable to the spill site by either air or highway.

All system components will be designed for use on vessels of opportunity at the site of the spill.
