AutoFoam Around-the-Pump

Complete Automatic Proportioning for Class B Foam

The AutoFoam around-the-pump system provides complete automatic proportioning for Class B foam. The operator selects a foam percent mixture and the solution provides a consistent foam solution at all discharges regardless of water flow fluctuations. A microprocessor controls the proportioning valve to automatically maintain accurate control over foam concentrate flow rates. The operator can override automatic operation by using the manual override buttons to control the proportioning valve. All operations, programming, and calibration are accomplished using the control module. Calibration for the system is stored in memory on each of the major components. This allows for the replacement of components without recalibration of the system.

System Features

  • Push button control
  • Flow totaling for both foam concentrate and water
  • Powers-up at the previous proportioning percent
  • Manual override
  • Remote Auto/Off switch (Optional)
  • Built-in diagnostics

Control Module Features

  • Current water flow
  • Total amount of foam concentrate flow
  • Foam concentrate left in tank (input required from TankVision display)
  • Percent the valve is open
  • Stored faults with date and time using the INC and DEC buttons to scroll

Options

  • Multiple discharge sensors
  • Flow rates displayed in LPM
  • Remote Auto/Off switch

Ideal for Use On

  • Municipal Fire Apparatus
  • Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Apparatus
  • Industrial Fire Apparatus
  • Compressed Air Foam Systems
