FIRE FIGHTING FOAM TESTING

Foamlab Fire Technologies Sdn Bhd was established on 26 January 2011, a subsidiary company of oil technics Limited, a company incorporated in England. Foamlab Fire Technologies Sdn Bhd main objectives are to provide fire fighting foam test laboratory, services and trading.

Foamlab Fire Technologies Sdn Bhd focuses in distributing fire fighting foam products and providing foam testing services to customers in East and West Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Singapore.

WHY FOAM TESTING
Quality foams exhibit excellent storage characteristics and most foam comes with at least 10 years life for products stored in original and unopened containers. However, foam's performance can be compromised by:

  • Dilution
  • Contamination
  • Temperature
  • System Failure

NFPA11, BS5306 and UKOOA/HSE recommend that:
"Foam concentrates and produced foams should be tested at least an annual basis"

THE TYPES OF FOAM TESTED INCLUDE:

  • AFFF
  • Alcohol Resistant
  • Protein
  • Fluoroprotein
  • Vapour Supression
  • Training Foams

FOAM CONCENTRATE TESTING
The purpose is to evaluate if the sample tested is in satisfactory condition and most importantly is within the manufacturer's specification. The concentrate sample will tested for the following physical characteristics:

  • Appearance
  • Specific pH
  • Viscosity
  • Surface Tension
  • Freeze Point
  • Expansion
  • 25% Drainage
  • Fire Extinguishment Properties
  • Burnback performance

PRODUCED FOAM TESTING
The testing determines the suitability and accuracy of a foam system's proportioning / induction equipment.

Each produced Foam Test Report shows the calculated % induction obtained from the sample provided. This result is compared against two internationally recognized Foam Standards – NFPA 11 and BS 5306.
