T-STORM F701B

Print

T-STORM F701B 1% × 3% AR-AFFF is a specially formulated, aqueous film-forming free flowing viscous foam concentrate. It forms a vapor suppressing aqueous film on hydrocarbon type fuels or a polymeric membrane on polar solvent/water miscible type fuels. It is intended for use at a proportioning rate of 1% (1 part AR-AFFF concentrate to 99 parts water) on hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel etc. F701B is also intended for use at a 3% proportioning rate (3 parts AR-AFFF concentrate to 97 parts water) on polar solvent/water soluble fuels such as alcohols, ketones, esters, etc.

Features

  • U.L. listed, Foam Liquid Concentrate
  • Used at an 1% proportioning rate on hydrocarbon and 3% on polar solvent fuels
  • Suitable for use with either fresh or salt water
  • Excellent wetting characteristics when used in combating Class A fuel type fires
  • Suitable for use with fiberglass, polyethylene or stainless steel. Suitable for use on hydrocarbon or polar solvent type fuels
  • Suitable for use with both air-aspirating foam and standard water fog nozzles
  • Economized for Topside applications

Proportioning

  • Fixed or portable in-line eductors
  • In-line balanced pressure and pump pressure proportioning skid
  • Bladder tank balanced pressure proportioning systems
  • Around the pump proportioners
  • Handline, air-aspirating nozzles with fixed eductor pickup tube

Discharge Devices

  • Foam Chambers
  • Air-aspirated foam nozzles
  • Standard water fog nozzles for handlines and monitors
  • Air-aspirating foam nozzles
  • Foam makers for use with either Floating Roof storage tanks or Dike/Bund protection systems

Design Information

Cannot be used in sub-surface applications with polar solvent type fuels.  F701B is not compatible with galvanized pipe or fittings in an undiluted form.

Foam Properties

Aspirating type discharge devices typically generate expansion ratios between 6-10 to 1 when F701B is mixed with water at the correct ratio. Non-aspirating type devices will typically generate expansion ratios of between 2-4 to 1.  Expansion ratios are dictated by the type of discharge device, flow rate and discharge pressure.

Typical Properties at 77ºF / 25ºC

  • Appearance = Off White Gel-Like Liquid 
  • Specific Gravity = 1.04 
  • pH = 7.7 
  • Viscosity = 2000 cps

Application Rates

Recommend application rate on hydrocarbon type fuels is 0.10 gpm/ft.².  The recommended minimum application rates for the following specific polar solvent type fuels are:

IPA0.16 gpm/ft²
METHANOL0.13 gpm/ft²
ETHANOL 0.14 gpm/ft²
METHYL ETHYL KETONE 0.13 gpm/ft²
ETHYL ACETATE0.15 gpm/ft²
MTBE0.15 gpm/ft²

Storage/Shelf Life

If kept in the original unopened and airtight factory supplied container and stored within the temperature range of 35ºF-120ºF (2°C - 49°C), a shelf life of between 20-25 years can be expected. If the AR-AFFF is to be stored in an atmospheric type foam concentrate storage tank whether on mobile apparatus or stationary, limit the airspace above the surface of the concentrate where possible and place a thin layer of quality mineral oil on the surface of the foam concentrate to minimize any effect from evaporation.

Ordering Information
