The Chemguard Foam Fire Fighting Station is a self contained unit that relies only on water flow and pressure to place the system into operation. It is designed to be installed in a fixed location such as processing, storage or handling areas where it is used to control fires or spills of flammable or combustible liquids. The unit is constructed in such a manner that one person may operate it to its full potential with the speed and effectiveness necessary in an emergency situation when foam is necessary. The 60-gallon unit holds 60-gallons of foam concentrate, has a 95-gpm in-line eductor prepiped to a fixed mounted continuous flow hose reel containing 100’ of 1.5” hard rubber hose and a hand line nozzle with ball shut off. The 36-gallon units holds 36-gallons of foam concentrate, has a 95 gpm in-line eductor prepiped to 100’ of 1.5” UL-19 flat fold hose and a handline nozzle with ball shut off. All that is required to place either unit in operation is to fill the foam concentrate storage tank with the correct type and quantity of foam concentrate and connect a suitable water source to the inlet of the in-line eductor.
