Fluorine-free foam and the consequences for fire extinguishing systems

By 2025, fluorine-containing foam will no longer be used to extinguish fires. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) wants to ban approximately six thousand hazardous substances that collectively have the name PFAS. 

This has an impact on firefighting practices. Not only must all fluorine-containing foam be replaced, it is also necessary to reassess the extinguishing systems.

Do you want to guarantee the fire safety of your location...

  • Does your foam extinguishing system still meet the properties and qualities of the 'new' foam?
  • What consequences does fluorine-free foam have for your installations?
  • What should you take into account as an installer or end user?

The composition and properties of fluorine-free foam differ enormously from fluorine-containing foams. For example, the viscosity may be higher or the expansion rate may be lower. It is important to respond adequately to this to guarantee fire safety.

HES Hartel Tank Terminal

The foam extinguishing system that is designed to eliminate all risks

To cover the maximum risk, a solution was chosen at HES Hartel Tank terminal that responds to the situation of being able to extinguish and cool multiple tank pits at the same time. This was done by mixing the foam concentrate at each tank terminal. There is an Electronic Foam Controller at each tank terminal to inject the correct amount of foam concentrate.
