F500 Encapsulator Agent vs One Million Tires

large_tire_fire

On a Tuesday morning, the Watertown Fire Department responded to a tire fire in Dodge County, Wisconsin. It turned out to be the largest coordinated fire in the state of Wisconsin with 106 fire departments responding with 920 firefighters. One million tires were involved. Failing to control the fire, the Chief was told about F-500 Encapsulator Agent. Within 24 hours, a truckload of F-500 EA arrived at the Wisconsin border and was escorted by state police to the scene.

After two and a half days, on Thursday evening, they began applying F-500 EA. During the night, they were already gaining control of the fire. The F-500 EA was able to penetrate the tires, rapidly cool and encapsulate the burning oils, exuding from the tires. Overhaul continued until Sunday morning when the fire was declared to be extinguished.

You should read this excellent article.  The pictures are amazing.

Why You Should Be Using F500 EA

If you are concerned about firefighter cancer, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about the environment, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about lithium-ion battery car fires, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about Class D fires or mag flash during car fires, you should be using F500 EA.

If your firefighting agent does not provide permanent burn back resistance, you should be using F500 EA.

If you know that foam is not recommended for three-dimensional Class B fires, you should be using F500 EA.

F-500 Encapsulator Agent is now recognized by NFPA 18A Section 7.7.  It extinguishes a fire three-ways. F500 EA encapsulates fuels, rendering them nonflammable.  It rapidly cools – remove the heat; extinguish the fire. F500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction.

One agent is all you need. You can use F-500 EA for Class A, B polar, B nonpolar, Class D, three-dimensional fires and it is recommended by ConEdison/FDNY for transformer fires and by many companies for lithium-ion battery fires.

The future is now.  Call us.

Reducing Smoke Virtually Eliminates Cancer Causing Toxins

warehouse fire in Böblingen, Germany

You can easily reduce cancer-causing toxins in smoke by applying 1-3% F-500 Encapsulator Agent in the water stream. This reduces the carcinogens everyone on the fire scene is exposed to. Independent tests show toxins are reduced 98.6% and smoke is reduced 97%. Plus, the scalding steam quickly turns into a warm vapor.

This should be a major concern for every firefighter.

It’s not magic; just a unique solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

F-500 EA extinguishes fires three ways. In addition to removing the heat and encapsulating fuels, F-500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction. This reduces the airborne particulates, greatly reducing toxins in the smoke. F-500 Encapsulator Agent is well-suited to Class A, Class B polar and nonpolar, Class D, three-dimensional fires, and is the only agent recommended for lithium-ion battery and transformer fires.

Watch the video to see how F-500 EA quickly changes the black smoke to a warm, white vapor. This means the cancer-causing toxins are reduced.

Are You Prepared for Landfill Fires?

These fires burn beneath the surface, so you need an agent designed to penetrate. Enough oxygen is available beneath the surface to sustain combustion, so laying foam on the surface won’t smother these fires.

F-500 Encapsulator Agent will penetrate deep and provide the burn back resistance needed to extinguish landfill fires. At the same time, F-500 EA cools the fuel. If you remove the heat; you remove the fire! Finally, F-500 EA is versatile. One agent can handle the varied things you would find in a landfill; Class A (paper, plastics, fabrics), Class B (oil in tires) or even Class D metals.
