Extinguishing a Three Dimensional Fire

free flowing 3-D

This short video shows how effective F-500 Encapsulator Agent is on three-dimensional fires. Foam is not recommended for three-dimensional fires because it can’t create a blanket to smother the fire. In fact, NFPA 11 Annex A.1.1 states, “Foam is not suitable for three-dimensional flowing liquid fuel fires or for gas fires.”

F-500 EA extinguishes a fire in three ways. It encapsulates hydrocarbon fuel and vapors, rendering them nonflammable. It also rapidly cools the fuel and structure. If you remove the heat; you remove the fire. Finally, F-500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction, which virtually eliminates toxins in the smoke, including cancer-causing toxins.
