PyroBubbles® float on liquids and spread evenly on burning liquids such as gasoline, oil or kerosene. It forms a heat-absorbent layer that prevents further fluid from evaporating and re-igniting. Furthermore, the air-oxygen is displaced, and the fire is smothered until it is successfully extinguished.
PyroBubbles® are thus ideal for extinguishing fires in storage tanks or, for example, the oil sumps of transformers.
It is particularly worth noting that PyroBubbles® are independent of the polarity of the flammable liquid, so that, for example, they can safely and effectively extinguish burning alcohols or ketones without the risk of flashback. PyroBubbles® are thus particularly suitable as an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to aqueous film forming foams, particularly vis-à-vis the environmentally hazardous fluorinated foaming agents (AFFF, FP, FFFP), so that discussions on the further use of these toxic foaming agents are terminated.
