Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) fire fighting agents are used as an alternative to potable water. All AFFF agents contain fluorinated surfactants which enables film formation on top of lighter fuels.
The chemicals used to produce fluorinated surfactants can be manufactured by different processes and have different chemical structures. The fluorinated surfactants used in AFFF are produced from fluorochemicals manufactured by two methods: electrochemical fluorination and telomerization.
Regardless of the process or manufacturer's chemical make-up of the production of AFFF, the foam poses environmental hazards if not properly contained. We provide a fiberglass composite tank capable of containing AFFF foam along with residual contaminates as a result of the fire event. Our tanks do not rust or corrode, are leak tight and have a smooth interior for easy cleaning. They are designed to be trouble free, empty, and ready for temporary storage from a fire event.
A Chemical Tank Questionnaire is available to help design the perfect storage system for your needs.
