Tank Protection

Quick control and suppression of a flammable liquid storage tank fire is critical for minimizing structural damage and protecting tank contents. Whether cone, fixed, open, closed or floating roof, vertical or horizontal tank, hydrocarbon or polar solvent hazard - SKUM foam products and services are designed to deliver effective fire protection for most flammable liquid tank storage applications.

SKUM tank protection solutions include:

  • SKUM fixed foam generators which quickly apply foam directly to the fuel surface, creating a foam blanket that suppresses the vapours and protects against re-ignition.
  • SKUM subsurface injection systems which discharge foam into the bottom of closed roof fuel tanks. The foam then floats to the fuel surface and suppresses the fire.
