BIOEX Technical Open Day at GESIP – Performance of BIOEX firefighting foam concentrates on class B fires
Video of 3 firefighting foam concentrate tests carried out on the technical platform of GESIP (France):
- ECOPOL F3HC: hydrocarbon fire (heptane) on exchanger
- BIOFILM 1S premium: hydrocarbon fire (heptane) in a 45m² pan
- ECOPOL PREMIUM: alcohol fire (ethanol) in a 100m² pan
The BIOFILM line fire-fighting foam concentrates are fluorosynthetic AFFF foam concentrates exclusively formulated using a surfactant foam base designed to put out hydrocarbon fires.
The so-called AFFF film generating property (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) gives BIOFILM an excellent extinguishing speed on hydrocarbon fires using direct application. The foam is applied directly on the surface of the burning hydrocarbon using a fire monitor or hose in the solid jet position making it possible to fight the fire from a distance.
The BIOex R&D department has designed BIO FOAM firefighting foam concentrates with the intention of being totally fluorine derivative free. BIO FOAM is biodegradable. It deteriorates quickly without any PBT residues (Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxins).
Depending on the type of sewage treatment station you use and the arrangements for its use, BIO FOAM foaming agents can be flushed away and do not require incineration.
