Foam Fire Suppression Systems
Kauffman Co. Serves Houston & the Greater Gulf Coast Area
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 won’t go out when doused with water (and in many cases, the fire can get worse).
For these situations, foam fire suppression systems are ideal. If you want to install a foam fire suppression system in Houston, TX, contact Kauffman Co. today! We offer quality service for foam fire suppression system inspection, testing, repair, and installation.

Benefits of Foam Fire Suppression Systems
Since fires from many flammable liquids cannot be controlled with a traditional sprinkler system, foam systems suppress fire 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.
The benefit of these types of agents is that they require very low energy input to produce a high-quality fire-fighting foam. As a result, they can be delivered through a wide variety of systems.
This versatility makes foam fire suppression systems the obvious choice for businesses and buildings with special hazard fire protection risks such as:
- Aircraft hangars
- Jet engine test facilities
- Manufacturing plants
- Marine facilities
- Municipal fire departments
- Storage facilities
Do you operate or manage one of these facilities? Call Kauffman Co. for fire protection services, including installation, inspection, and repair of a foam fire suppression system.
Foam Fire Suppression System Bladder Tanks
Foam concentrate is often stored in a bladder tank system. In AFFF systems, a bladder tank containing a nylon reinforced elastomeric bladder is used to store the foam concentrate. System water pressure is used to squeeze the bladder, providing fire-fighting foam concentrate—at the same pressure—to the foam proportioner. With bladder tank foam systems, no external power is required, and little maintenance is needed.
If you operate a facility that handles large quantities of flammable liquids, a foam fire suppression system will go a long way toward keeping you safe from a devastating fire. At Kauffman Co., we can install, replace, repair, and test your foam fire bladder tank and suppression system. Call us to schedule an appointment with an experienced and licensed technician today.
