Product Description

Fluoroprotein foams at 3% concentrate provide better control, greater fluidity, and superior resistance to fuel contamination. Fluoroprotein foams demonstrate good burnback resistance, are useful for hydrocarbon vapor suppression, and have been recognized as effective fire suppression agents for subsurface injection into hydrocarbon fuel storage tanks.

Fluoroprotein foams are derived from protein foam concentrates to which small amounts of fluorochemical surfactants are added. The fluorochemical surfactants are similar to those developed for AFFF foam agents but used in much lower concentrations. The addition of these chemicals produces an easier-flowing foam. Because of these chemicals, fluoroprotein foams are said to be oleophobic (oil shedding) and are well suited for sub-surface injection.

Ansul 3% Fluoroprotein Foam Concentrate is intended for use on Class B hydrocarbon fuels having low water solubility such as various crude oils, gasolines, diesel fuels, aviation fuels, etc.. It is not suitable for use on fuels having appreciable water solubility (polar solvents), i.e., methyl and ethyl alcohol, acetone and methyl ethyl ketone. Its wetting characteristics make it useful in combating Class A fires as well. It can also be used with foam compatible dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application, to provide even greater fire protection capability.
Ansul 3% Fluoroprotein Foam Concentrate is formulated from hydrolyzed protein, fluorochemical surfactants, foam stabilizers (metal salts), bactericide, corrosion inhibitors, freezing point depressants and solvents. It is intended for use as a 3% proportioned solution either in fresh, salt or hard water. The correct proportioning ratio is 3 parts of concentrate to 97 parts of water.

The Ansul part # for this product is 73972; full performance and technical specifications are available in the Ansul data sheet for this product. The Safety Data Sheet is also available.
