The CHEMGUARD Horizontal Pre-Piped Bladder Tank is a steel pressure vessel which stores foam concentrate contained within an elastomeric bladder. The concentrate is discharged from the tank by incoming water applying pressure to the bladder. This applied energy is transferred to the foam concentrate, supplying pressurized foam concentrate to the proportioner.
The CHEMGUARD Horizontal Pre-Piped Bladder Tank is a complete balanced pressure proportioning system inclusive of a proportioner and all of the valves and piping required for either manual or automatic operation. These tanks are intended for use where is it desirable to have the proportioning system pre-assembled with fixed dimensions known, eliminating field assembly of loose components and uncertainty in the layout of the foam equipment room. CHEMGUARD pre-piped bladder tanks can be used with most CHEMGUARD foam concentrates and any suitable discharge device to complete the foam system.
CHEMGUARD Pre-Piped Bladder Tanks require only a pressurized water supply for operation. No other external power is required. As with standard CHEMGUARD bladder tanks, they can be used in a variety of applications, including aircraft hangars, foam-water sprinkler systems, truck loading racks, and helipads.
CHEMGUARD Horizontal Pre-Piped Bladder Tanks are UL Listed and FM Approved for use with various CHEMGUARD foam concentrates. FM Approval only valid when used in conjunction with the optional Hydraulic Concentrate Control Valve Supervision Retrofit Kit. The UL mark and FM Approval diamond are applied at the factory along with a label identifying the CHEMGUARD foam concentrate for use in the tank. Every tank bears a permanently affixed ASME data plate showing the National Board number which identifies the tank as compliant with ASME code Section VIII, Division 1 for unfired pressure vessels.
CHEMGUARD Horizontal Pre-Piped Bladder Tanks 200 gal (757 L) and larger are CE marked in conformance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive, 2014/68/EU. Under European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU, tanks smaller than 200 gal (757 L) are acceptable based on sound engineering practices of ASME code and cannot be CE marked.
