BALANCED PRESSURE PROPORTIONING SKID
Chief Fire Foam Skids are custom engineered to meet client specifications and these designs will match the requirements of your fire protection challenges. Our experienced engineering team utilizes 3-D modeling software and established engineering calculations to enable us to customize the best possible skid footprint and piping solution.
The Foam Skid works on the principle of balanced pressure proportioning, which delivers consistent foam liquid concentrate over a wide-range of water flow and pressures. Diaphragm valves are designed to balance the foam concentrate pressure to the water pressure, at the ratio controller inlet, by controlling the foam concentrate discharge pressure of the valve.
Balance is achieved by regulating the volume of foam concentrate discharged to the ratio controller.
The basic compact platform measures approximately 3M wide x 9M long x 4M high. Simple to operate, user-friendly controls and quick to implement. The skid offers tremendous firefighting impact, in a moment’s notice! The multi-purpose package combines water and foam tanks, fire pump, foam system, and pre-connected firefighting hand lines.
The system is designed to be totally self-contained without the need for external power or water supply services.
Additional services for a generator and floodlighting can be added, along with additional firefighting cabinets for gear, nozzles, hose and other tools.
The unit can be supplemented with a fixed foam monitor and intakes for foam and water supplies from fire apparatus or portable sources.
The Foam Tote Truck/Trailer provides a large storage capacity for foam concentrate totes along with a high-performance engine-driven pump to transfer the foam at a high flow rate. Foam totes are stored in a steel tubing framework and can be loaded and unloaded easily by forklift.
