Solberg introduces foam concentrate test kits for compliance testing

Published:  14 October, 2014

Three different types of compliance testing are offered: Foam Quality Analysis, Proportioning Verification or US Coast Guard Foam Quantity Analysis.

The Foam Concentrate Test Kit consists of collection bottles, service request forms (foam analysis request, foam proportioning results), return address labels and reusable shipping carton.

Compliance testing service is offered through all three of Solberg’s laboratories located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Bergen, Norway and Sydney, Australia.

Foam concentrate or proportioning system test intervals will vary depending on the method and frequency of testing required relative to the type of protected risk and/or the requirements of the Local Authority Having Jurisdiction. Authorities may include fire service, insurance or building code officials. Most authorities will require a proportioning test upon the installation and commissioning of a fixed foam system, in addition to a regular interval thereafter.

Bulk foam concentrate in storage may also be subject to regular test intervals as required by the authority or defined by safety codes or standards such as, but not limited, to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 11: Standard for Low, Medium and High Expansion Foam; NFPA 16: Standard For The Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems; NFPA 25: Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems; NFPA 409: Standard On Aircraft Hangars; NFPA 412: Standard For Evaluating Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Foam Equipment; NFPA 418: Standard For Heliports and EN13565-2: Fixed Fire Fighting Systems – Foam Systems Design, Construction and Maintenance.
