Perimeter Solutions announced the introduction of a brand new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for common purpose use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam focus is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam know-how designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. เกจไนโตรเจนsumo and non-persistent concentrate is made with no siloxanes and is a mix of hydrocarbon surfactants and components that delivers excellent foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using recent, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and sometimes present viscosity increase when in contact with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very steady foams whereas keeping an analogous viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This considerably improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a growing variety of international 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 continuing expertise innovation by the corporate within the space of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive improvement programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the best degree of fire-suppression requirements,’ he stated. ‘In addition to the superb firefighting efficiency, one of many key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its constant viscosity when in touch with water, which is vastly completely different from many other fluorine-free foams in the marketplace. This can have a dramatic effect on handling and use rates in firefighting operations.’ he stated.
A broad range of use functions
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate secure foams with excessive fluidity and gradual drainage. This novel know-how permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform equally to fluorinated products. It may be used with low-expansion foam gear (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets to struggle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is fully suitable and simply proportioned with normal firefighting equipment, together with in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fire truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced stress systems and extra.
In addition to its glorious foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting ability, making it additionally an effective software for the extinguishment of Class A gasoline fires.
Multiple certifications show effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for numerous regions and applications. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the maximum rating and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 3 & 4 on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – to be used with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The firm is pursuing additional certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is available instantly on a global foundation. Perimeter Solutions will be discussing the new foam technology on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
