Perimeter Solutions announced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for basic objective use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam technology designed for extinguishing and securing each Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent focus is made with no siloxanes and is a combination of hydrocarbon surfactants and components that delivers excellent foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using contemporary, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently present viscosity enhance when involved with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams whereas keeping an analogous viscosity to traditional AR-AFFF foams. This significantly improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a rising variety of worldwide certifications, together with EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to Javier Castro, General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an example of the persevering with know-how innovation by the company in the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive growth programme for fluorine-free know-how that meets the highest stage of fire-suppression requirements,’ he said. ‘In addition to the wonderful firefighting performance, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its constant viscosity when in contact with water, which is vastly totally different from many different fluorine-free foams available on the market. This can have a dramatic impact on dealing with and use rates in firefighting operations.’ he said.
A broad vary of use purposes
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate steady foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. เกจ์วัดแรงดันลม allows SOLBERG VERSAGARD to carry out equally to fluorinated products. It may be used with low-expansion foam equipment (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge devices to struggle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent gasoline fires. It is fully compatible and simply proportioned with standard firefighting tools, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fireplace truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced strain techniques and extra.
In addition to its glorious foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has wonderful wetting capacity, making it additionally an efficient device for the extinguishment of Class A gas fires.
Multiple certifications reveal effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for numerous regions and purposes. The firefighting foam concentrate:
Has achieved the maximum rating and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half 3 & 4 on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – to be used with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with 3 nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The firm is pursuing additional certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is available immediately on a world basis. Perimeter Solutions might be discussing the new foam technology on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
