Foam Concentrate Test Kit

Field Test Kit for Foam Concentrates

Designed to enable fire safety professionals to check for themselves on-site the specifications of foam concentrates.

  • Enables foam induction systems to be easily calibrated.
  • Enables foam concentrates to be checked for physical conformance.
  • Contains a step-by-step manual, together with worked examples.
  • Also suitable for testing Produced Foams to International Standards NFPA 11 2002 (para. 10.6.2 and 3) and BS 5306.
  • Packed in robust offshore suitable case.

Suitable for testing...

Suitable for testing the following properties of Foam Concentrate:

  • Specific gravity
  • ¼ Drainage
  • Expansion ratio
  • Induction percentage

For those with access to a laboratory, the manual includes “how to” descriptions for testing:

  • pH (requires a pH meter)
  • Surface tension (requires a surface tension balance)
  • Viscosity (requires a viscometer)

Suitable for testing the following types of foam:

  • Aqueous Film-Forming Foams (AFFFs)
  • Protein
  • Alcohol Resistant (AR) foams - but not suitable for testing Specific gravity of AR Foams

 Designed to test Produced Foams to International Standards NFPA 11 2002 (para. 10.6.2 and 3) and BS 5306.
