ACAF Systems-PFS Fire Suppression Group, LLC, a manufacturer of FM Approved, Compressed Air Foam (CAF) fire suppression systems for fighting special hazard, flammable liquid fires, announces the successful completion of testing at the BEST in Beaumont (TX) extinguishing a simulated oil rig fire in a matter of minutes using just two gallons of RF foam from a 60-Gallon CAF Skid System.
The event was documented by the facility, showing firefighters easily suppressing the flames with the ACAF system, despite never having used it previously. The video can be viewed at the ACAF Systems-Fire Suppression Group web site.
“The testing done at the BEST in Beaumont, Texas clearly demonstrates that our CAF Systems can fight flammable liquid fires quickly and effectively, without the need for a fixed water supply or electricity”, said Dave Munroe, COO of ACAF Systems-Fire Suppression Group. “Multiple studies and test fires continue to validate that using our compressed air foam systems greatly improves fire extinguishment and overall fire safety.
