Foam manufacturer introduces foam system upgrade programme

Published:  30 June, 2014

Initiative by Solberg enables companies to replace fluorine-based foam concentrates in foam/water sprinkler systems for class B fires with UL-listed and FM-approved fluorine-free foam.

Solberg has announced a program to replace fluorine-based foam concentrates in foam/water sprinkler systems with a high-performance environmentally sustainable firefighting foam concentrate for Class B fuel fires, while maintaining the critical product certification on the existing system.

The foam/water sprinkler system opgrade programme utilises Re-Healing foam, the world’s first UL Listed and FM Approved fluorine-free foam concentrate, which contains no fluorine or other organohalogens, whether surfactant or polymer based.

Customers that currently have foam/water sprinkler systems that contain fluorine-based foam concentrates, that would like to replace this old technology with the latest advancements in firefighting foam agents, can now do so under this program without losing the product certification (UL listing or FM approval) on the existing installation, as a result of; their desire to improve their environmental responsibility, a foam/water sprinkler system discharge, or replacement of foam concentrate that has not passed its annual foam concentrate test as required by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 11 – standard for low, medium and high expansion foam.

Re-Healing foam system upgrade programme certificate

The program allows users of fluorine containing aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) foam/water sprinkler systems to upgrade to Re-Healing foam while reducing the cost of system changeover, and to maintain the existing system compliance certification as well.

When Re-Healing foam is purchased for a foam/water sprinkler system at standard market price, Solberg will supply to the customer, free of charge, a Solberg UL listed and FM approved standard proportioner, and a supply of automatic sprinklers that are also UL listed and FM approved with Re-Healing foam concentrate, allowing the customer to maintain the current listing or approval on the system.
