|The Mobilcart is a highly maneuverable wheeled cart consisting of a 36 gallon (140 L) reinforced fiberglass tank with two built-in hose storage locations, eductor with metering valve, and two lengths of 50 ft. (15.2 m) 1 3/4 in. (4.4 cm) fire hose with choice of foam nozzle. Simply connect to your water supply, turn on the water, set the eductor metering valve as necessary, and direct the nozzle foam stream. It can be easily transported and operated by one person.
The Mobilcart will supply foam under a wide range of water pressures. Nozzle range is dependent upon the available flowing water pressure and the type of nozzle selected. See the Ansul data sheet (18K, PDF) for flow performance and other information.
Common applications include:
- Tank farms and refineries
- Loading areas
- Chemical processing plants
- Diked areas
- Warehouse facilities
- Paint storage areas
- Other manufacturing reas where flammable liquids are a hazard
A broad range of foam concentrates can be used for these applications including AFFF, Alcohol Resistant AFFF, JET-X® high expansion type, and protein based foam concentrates. Generally, the types of flammable liquids involved and the hazard configuration will best suit a particular type of Class B foam concentrate. For hazards involving Class A fuel fires including wood, paper, coal, and rubber; a proportioning setting of 1% is recommended for use with SILV-EX Class A Fire Control Concentrate.
