Foam Fire Suppression - Viking - Facility Management Product Release
Viking offers complete, integrated low-expansion foam solutions for the suppression of flammable liquid fires. Protected hazards include fuel storage, refineries, aircraft hangars and helipads, logistics centers, incineration plants, military installations, and jetty loading areas.
Viking’s foam system components include: vertical and horizontal bladder tanks, bladder tank hose stations, and atmospheric tanks — single and double wall construction; deluge and concentrate control valves in grooved, threaded, or flanged inlet and outlet options and angle or straight-through patterns; and a variety of foam proportioning and discharge devices for a wide range of applications, flow rates, and foam system types. Viking’s C6 foam concentrates include synthetic AFFF and ARC concentrates for hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires, Military Specification concentrates for high-risk applications, and Fluoroprotein concentrates for hydrocarbon bulk storage and handling facilities.
Also offered is Viking’s FoamPak pre-fabricated and tested foam pumping system, which incorporates a foam pump, pre-wired pump controller, pressure sustaining valve and pressure relief valve in a UL Listed and FM Approved preassembled package. For aircraft hangar and helipad protection, Viking’s patented Grate Nozzle is designed to be installed in the hangar floor to quickly distribute foam where fuel spills typically occur.
Viking foam systems are FM Approved to FMS 130 and UL Listed to UL 162, and many Viking products have also been tested to local approval standards.
