DISTRIBUTION

CAF FACTS

The U.S. Fire Administration conducted a series of studies and test fires and found that a CAF hose line is significantly lighter and easier to handle than a conventional water line. This is because the foam in the hose is mostly air.  MORE CAF FACTS
 

DELUGE SYSTEMS

(Area Protection)

The Deluge System uses DN7 nozzles in a network of piping that is designed to distribute CAF over the entire hazard area automatically. A balanced pressure piping design will provide an even distribution of CAF thru these specifically designed nozzles installed in either the pendant or horizontal position.  Deluge Systems are ideal for Chemical Manufacturing, Fuel Loading Racks and more.

DN7 NOZZLE

Proprietary and unique to both the ACAF® Deluge and Fixed Spray Systems is the DN 7 Nozzle. Patent pending and FM Approved for installation in the pendant and horizontal positions, these multi-port nozzles are highly cost effective as they allow for the greatest spacing possible, to minimize the amount of nozzles and piping needed.

SUPPLY CHOICES

Our systems are available in either a self-contained or fixed water supply configuration.

Self Contained Supply, Automatic, Fixed Pipe System (SC)

The SC configuration is recommended for areas where water is not readily available. This automatic, pre-engineered, stored energy-type, fire suppression system uses CAF as the fire suppression agent. Unique to the industry, it does not require a water supply to create CAF.

Fixed Water Supply, Automatic, Fixed Pipe System (FW)

When a reliable water supply is available a CAF solution may be designed using ACAF’s® fixed water supply system. This system requires a foam proportioner to mix foam concentrate and water to a pre-determined ratio of 3% or 6 %.
