Foam flooding system


We are one of the leading manufacturer, supplier & service provider of Foam Flooding System in Pune, Maharashtra, India. We are providing a great solution to the foam flooding system. This type of system can be used for warehouse, air force hanger, Chemical storage, etc.


Foam flooding systems will be operated both ways automatically and manually. The most frequently used solution to generate a suppression initiation signal is for the fire alarm system to issue a fire alarm. On the other hand, the suppression initiation signal may also be generated otherwise if needed (such as using pilot systems).




In order to avoid false alarms and the resulting damage, the fire extinguishing system usually starts operation only once a pre-programmed amount of time has passed. During this delay, those who are at the location can disable the suppression if they have ascertained beyond any doubt that the suppression is not necessary.


A light foam flood-based sprinkler system fills the protected section with foam to full height. In a foam-filled location the foam cuts off oxygen from the fire, which is a prerequisite for burning, so it is best suited for fire suppression with deep-seated places of origin.

A quenching system based on light foam flooding minimizes the minimal secondary damage caused by quenched foam during suppression, unlike other foam-based or water-based quenching techniques, during which the volume of the extinguishing material is more often several are needed. Be transported to a protected area.


Foam flooding systems are similar to water mist fire suppression systems, but use a foam solution mixed with water to extinguish the fire. Foam suppression systems are useful for companies that cannot afford expensive tank and pump systems to operate sprinklers or when there is a particularly high risk of high flammable liquid that may require the cover. Automatic or manual fire detection can be used to release a mixture of foam and water that will expand upon the release of the agent and give a larger fire rating cover without the need for large storage or pump tanks.


Types of Foam Flooding Systems:


There are two types of Foam Flooding Systems


1. Low expansion foam flooding Systems

Low Expansion foam flooding offers a 5:1 expansion rate, making it the foam system of the first choice to protect large and vulnerable facilities to fire, which includes petrochemical tank fields, loading docks, processing blocks, and refineries and liquefied natural gas storage. Companies storing or handling flammable and combustible liquids will usually need to comply with Indian Standards on 'The Storage and Handling of Flammable and Combustible Liquids’ and industry experts can provide the design expertise and system components to help any facility comply with these Standard(s).


2. High expansion foam flooding

With an expansion rate of 500:1, High Expansion foam systems are best fit to protect less common three-dimensional vulnerable facilities including; warehouses, conveyors, aircraft hangars and tunnels. In high expansion, foam is measured by volume output rather than application rate, as is typical of low expansion foams.


High-expansion foam systems can optimize to form concentrate with foam high output foam generators to provide firefighting protection for a multitude of applications such as aircraft hangars; basements; cable tunnels; flammable packaging areas; flammable liquid drum storage areas; hazardous waste facilities; LNG tank farms and loading facilities; mines; roll-paper warehouses; shipboard engine rooms, bilges and holds in shipyard; storage buildings; warehouses; and wildland fire breaks. The light, voluminous foam blanket produced by our high-expansion foam systems can quickly obtain great heights, reaching elevated flammable materials (such as on warehouse racks). The foam cover efficiently transports small amounts of water to the fire, encapsulating the flammable vapors and letting suppression and extinguishment.


Discharge Devices

With both low and high expansion foam systems, once a facility has been evaluated either an ‘Aspirating’ or ‘Non-Aspirating’ discharge device’ will be advised, based on the facility's specifications. For maximum effectiveness, the expansion ratio, discharge device, and foam concentrate must be correct.


Aspirating discharge equipment allows a more viscous foam – great for reducing burn back and keeping the foam restrained. Non-aspirating discharge devices - are best used where the foam is needed to spread over a large space.
