1. Foam Fire Extinguishing

Foam fire extinguishing is a set of actions to eliminate fire. A foam or a wetting solutions are used as a fire extinguishing agent in foam fire extinguishing systems and installations. Fire fighting equipment for systems includes foam generators, foam storage and dosing systems, fire filters, proportioners, etc.

Pozhneftehim recommends using modern efficient foam fire extinguishing installations. The customer engages us in as a company responsible for designing, production, supervision, commissioning and maintenance during the further operation of the complex of fire fighting equipment and foam concentrates.

1.2. Advantages of foam fire extinguishing

The foam fire extinguishing installations makes it possible to effectively isolate fuel from oxidizer and cool the seat of fire. This significantly reduces water consumption and effectively limits the spread of flame.

Air-mechanical foam is divided into low, medium and high expansion foam. Depending on the foam expansion ratio, foam fire extinguishing installations are divided into installations (systems) for area and volume fire suppression. There is also a method of subsurface suppression of oil and oil products in reservoirs with flammable and combustible liquids.

When choosing a fire extinguishing method, it is necessary, in accordance with the "Technical Regulations on Fire Safety Requirements" No. 123-FZ dated July 22, 2008, to identify the object of protection according to the functional fire hazard class, fire resistance level, category of buildings, structures and premises by fire and explosion hazard (for production sites).

2. Examples of Pozhneftehim fire extinguishing installations (logic diagrams)

General view (logical diagram) of the Pozhneftehim foam fire extinguishing installation for a reservoir with flammable and combustible liquids. The reservoirs are part of processing sites for oil and oil products. Large-scale fire extinguishing systems are required for tank farms - storages for petroleum products. The site requires foam fire extinguishing and water cooling systems. Low expansion or low and medium expansion foam are used, depending on the method of extinguishing.

General view (logical diagram) of the Pozhneftehim foam fire extinguishing installation for general purpose industrial warehouses in accordance with SP 5.13130-2009. They include buildings and premises where products of light, food, chemical, woodworking industries, agricultural products, paints, varnishes, fuels and lubricants are stored. Such warehouses are part of many production and industrial facilities. A foam fire extinguishing system with low, medium or high expansion foam is required depending on the characteristics of the object. Water fire suppression with a wetting agent is also widely used. The choice of fire extinguishing agent is made by the design organization, depending on the specific character of the fire hazard for the stored values.

3. Regulatory grounds for the use of foam fire extinguishing installations
3.1. Foam fire extinguishing in Russian and international standards

Foam fire extinguishing is included in the main Russian and international regulatory documents in the field of fire safety. Among international and foreign standards that relate to foam fire extinguishing installations, the following is worth mentioning:

3.2. Russian standards applicable to designing of foam fire extinguishing systems and installations

The design of foam fire extinguishing installations on the territory of the Russian Federation is carried out in compliance with the following main regulatory documents:

3.3. Classification of foam fire extinguishing installations according to Russian standards

Pozhneftehim is a developer of fire safety systems for industrial and production sites.

Requirements to automatic installations of foam fire extinguishing are established by GOST 12.3.046 and GOST P 50800. The systems are divided by design into sprinkler and drencher types (electric, pneumatic, hydraulic, etc.).

Foam fire extinguishing installations have different response time, that is, the period of tume before the system starts releasing the fire extinguishing substance:

Classification of foam fire extinguishing installations by duration of action:

Regardless of the response time and duration of foam extinguishing, any foam extinguishing installation contains the following elements:

Pozhneftehim recommends to take the foam expansion ratio as the basis for the classification of foam extinguishing installations. By this criterion, the systems are divided into:
