A Solution for All Foam Applications

TFC100

The simplest system, this control is for use with a single foam tank. A single 4-digit display and four LED indicators provide system information to the operator. A mode button is used to toggle the display to view foam percent, water flow, or flow totaling.

TFC200

Flexible programming allows this control to be used with a single foam tank or in a two foam tank system when the manual ABF selector option is installed.

TFC300

This control is for use with a single foam tank and includes an electric valve to provide electronic flush control. A flush button with an LED indicator on the control module operates the flush valve.

TFC400

This control is for use with two foam tanks and includes the 3-valve electric ABF selector to provide automatic electronic flush control. A flush button with LED indicator and an A/B button with foam A and foam B indicator LEDs on the control module operate the ABF selector.

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.
