Chemguard 3% AFFF Foam (5 Gallon Pail)

Chemguard 3% AFFF is a specially formulated, synthetic, aqueous film forming foam concentrate. A vapor suppressing aqueous film is formed by the foam solution draining from the expanded foam blanket. It is intended for use at a proportioning rate of 3% (3 parts AFFF concentrate to 97 parts water) on Class B hydrocarbon type fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel, etc. Chemguard 3% AFFF is not intended for use on fuels, which are polar solvent/water miscible such as alcohols, ketones, esters, etc.

Features:
  • U.L. Listed, Foam Liquid Concentrates 
  • U.L. Canada Listed 
  • U.L. recommended application rate on hydrocarbon type fuels is .10/gpm ft². 
  • FM Approved 
  • Performance to ICAO, Doc. # 9137, Part 1, Chapter 8, Level “B” verified 
  • Suitable for use with fresh or salt water 
  • Excellent wetting characteristics when used in combating Class “A” fuel fires 
  • Suitable for use with both aspirating foam and standard water fog nozzles 
  • Suitable for use with deluge or closed head foam water sprinkler systems 
  • If inadvertently frozen, thawing will render product completely serviceable again 
  • Suitable for use with carbon steel, fiberglass, polyethylene or stainless steel. Chemguard 3% AFFF is not compatible with galvanized pipe or fittings in an undiluted form.

Proportioning:
  • Fixed or portable in-line eductors 
  • In-line balanced pressure and pump pressure proportioning skid 
  • Bladder tank balanced pressure proportioning systems 
  • Around the pump proportioners 
  • Handline, air-aspirating nozzles with fixed eductor pickup tube 

Discharge Devices:
  • Foam Chambers 
  • Air-aspirating and non air-aspirating sprinkler heads or spray nozzles 
  • Standard water fog nozzles for handlines and monitors 
  • Air-aspirating foam nozzles 
  • Foam makers for use with either Floating Roof storage tanks or Dike/Bund protection systems 
  • High back pressure foam makers for sub-surface base injection system (hydrocarbon type fuels only) 

Applications:
  • Crash Fire Rescue 
  • Storage Tanks(non-polar solvent type fuels only) 
  • Truck/Rail Loading or Unloading Facilities

  • Mobile Equipment 

Foaming Properties:
Aspirating type discharge devices typically generate expansion ratios between 6-10 to 1 when 3% AFFF is mixed with water at the correct ratio. Non-aspirating type devices will typically generate expansion ratios of between 2-4 to 1. Expansion ratios are dictated by the type of discharge devices, flow rate and discharge pressure.

Typical Properties at 77ºF (25ºC): 
  • Appearance: Clear Slightly Yellow 
  • Specific Gravity: 1.02 
  • pH: 7.7 
  • Viscosity: 1.5 cps
