Specifying a 1600, 2000, or 3012 System

Your maximum and minimum flows and pressures for all discharges supplied with foam.

Example

  • Maximum: One deck gun: 500 gpm (1893 LPM) at 150 psi (10 BAR)
  • Minimum: One 1-1/2 line flowing 35 gpm (132.5 LPM) (mop-up)
    = 35 gpm (132.5 LPM) at 100 psi (7 BAR)

Determine the maximum and minimum foam concentrate levels that must be provided.

Example

  • Maximum: 1.0% AFFF Minimum: 0.5% Class A

Determine the size of the proportioner needed.

Example

  • Maximum Concentrate Requirement = maximum flow x maximum concentration
    500 gpm (1893 LPM) x 1.0% = 5.0 gpm (19 LPM)

Example

  • Minimum Concentrate Requirement = minimum flow x minimum concentration
    35 gpm (132.5 LPM) x 0.5% = 0.18 gpm (.68 LPM)

Therefore, the FoamPro system must be capable of delivering 0.18 to 5.0 gpm (.68 – 19 LPM) of concentrate. According to the performance curve, the Model 2002 will meet these requirements.

Determine if the flow sensor and flow sensor tee for the plumbing size being used will cover the range of flows in the first step.

Example

  • A 3″ diameter pipe will be used to supply these discharges. The 3″ flow sensor will accurately read between 30 gpm (113.6 LPM) and 1,150 gpm (4,353 LPM). The required range is 35 gpm to 500 gpm (132.5 – 1,893 LPM). Therefore, one flow sensor in a 3″ tee will handle the requirements. If the flows should exceed the capacity of the flow sensor tee, then the installation would require two or more appropriate size flow sensors and a MultiFlo.

NOTE: FoamPro systems will pump all known Class A and Class B Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) to capacity. Many brands of Alcohol Resistant-Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AR-AFFF) exhibit higher viscosity characteristics due to chemical composition and polymers. As viscosity increases, diminished flow may affect pump performance. Because of numerous variables, including pump design, foam cell configuration, inlet piping/components, and system layout; please contact FoamPro for application-specific recommendations when foam viscosities of 2000 cps or higher are used.

TurboFoam Accessories and Options

Electric ABF Selector

The electric ABF selector is standard on the TFC400 models. It allows the operator to select Class A foam, Class B foam, or flushing operations from the push buttons on the control module. The selector is installed between the foam tanks and the foam pump assembly intake and has an input for flush water. The electric model is made up of three electric valves mounted on a manifold that controls the flow of foam concentrate or flush water into the system. On each of the valve covers there is a dial indicator to show the valve position and an allen head screw that allows for manual adjustment of the valve position.

Manual ABF Selector

The manual ABF selector is an option with the TFC200 models. It allows the operator to select Class A foam, Class B foam, or Flushing operations by rotating the ABF selector handle. The selector is connected between the foam tanks and the foam pump assembly intake and has an input for flush water. Two check valves are included with this option that must be installed between the foam tanks and the selector.

Electric Flush Valve

The electric valve is standard on the TFC300 models and an option with the TFC100/200 single tank systems. It is used to provide flush or prime capabilities for the concentrate pump.

Remote ON/OFF Switch & Indicator

The remote switch and indicator mirrors the control module ON/OFF button and LED on the control module.

Check Valve & Drain

  1. Includes a water way check valve, check valve injector port, and
    a drain.
  2. Includes a flow sensor mount, water way check valve, check valve injector port, and a drain.

TankVision or Tank Float Switch

A TankVision sensor or tank float switch is required to be installed in the foam tank to provide the tank empty signal to the control module. The TankVision is connected to the control module on the datalink and provides tank volume data. If a tank float switch is installed, it is connected to the tank empty inputs on the control module.
