The Fomtec Skade high back pressure foam generator is an air aspirating discharge device designed to deliver foam directly onto or below the surface of flammable or combustible liquid in a fixed tank protection system. The Fomtec Skade is available 2×3” up to 4”x6” body size and inlet flange (DIN or ANSI) and flow rates up to 2000 lpm. Skade foam generators are installed on the outside of flammable liquid storage tanks.
Foam generators produce foam by mixing water and the foam concentrate supply, then pressurized and balanced with an air source, for example by using a turbine. Either a low expansion, medium expansion, or high expansion generator can be used. They are suitable for different applications. A high expansion generator produces foam quickly in large quantities, with a large supply of air to create fine micro-bubbled foam.
The Skade high back pressure foam generator is suitable for use with any foam proportioning systems such as bladder tanks, foam pump or inductor systems in applications such as:
- Petrochemical plants
- Tank farms
Skade is recommended for use with following foam types:
- Protein, FP or FFFP 3% or 6%
- AFFF 1%, 3% or 6%
- AFFF ARC or FFFP ARC 3×3 or 3×6
- Multi purpose foam
Foam solution is supplied to the generator from outside the hazard area. When foam solution enters the generator it is expanded and then discharged through a foam pourer or sub-surface injection.
