If your business or organization has operations involving the processing or handling of flammable liquids, a traditional water-based fire sprinkler system may not be enough to protect your space from fires. Not only are these spaces typically much larger, and therefore harder to protect, but fires may involve fuels or other flammable liquids that water won’t extinguish when in flames.
For these situations, ANSUL foam fire suppression systems are ideal. Kauffman Co. is a leading Houston-area fire protection company that provides full service on ANSUL foam fire suppression systems. We offer inspection, testing, repair, and installation, as well as 24/7 emergency service.
Since fires from many flammable liquids cannot be controlled with a traditional sprinkler system, foam systems suppress fires by separating the fuel from the air (oxygen). The main fire-fighting agent, Aqueous Film-Forming Foams (AFFF), is based on a combination of fluoro-chemical surfactants, hydrocarbon surfactants, and solvents.
ANSUL foam fire suppression systems require very low energy input to produce a high-quality firefighting foam. As a result, they can be delivered through a wide variety of systems. They are the obvious choice for businesses throughout Texas in the following industries:
If you operate a facility that handles large quantities of flammable liquids, a foam fire suppression system from ANSUL will go a long way toward keeping you safe from a devastating fire.
