Available for use with our full line of monitors, for water and foam solutions, Chemguard nozzles provide flow rates of 100 to 1,250 gallons per minute, with flows up to 5,000 gallons per minute possible on high-volume mobile/trailer units.
Manufactured from corrosion-resistant brass or durable Chemlite™ anodized black aluminum, Chemguard nozzles are fully adjustable, from straight stream to full fog. Serrated teeth improve the water fog pattern and aid foaming AFFF solutions. Non-aspirating water fog nozzles are used for aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) applications; aspirating nozzles are used for polar solvent fuels and fluoroprotein foam solutions.
Chemguard’s master-stream monitor nozzles are offered in fixed-gallonage, adjustable-gallonage, automatic, and self-educting versions.
Chemguard manual monitors feature rugged, corrosion-resistant construction, grease fittings, and stainless-steel ball bearings. Suitable for water and all types of foam solutions, our manual monitors have 3 inch or greater waterways and 2 ½ inch or greater outlets.
The brass “Brahma” single-waterway monitor and the “Rattler” handwheel monitor – both of which offer 360-degree rotation – are often used in demanding industrial, marine, and offshore applications. The lightweight aluminum “Jackrabbit” dual-inlet ground monitor – which provides a safety stop 30 degrees above horizontal – generally is used by municipal fire departments and with fire appliances.
Chemguard foam system bladder tanks provide accurate, dependable, and cost-effective foam fire protection for a variety of flammable/combustible hazard areas, with no external power other than water pressure. Water is applied to the outside surface of the bladder, displacing foam concentrate inside the bladder, which then is injected into the water stream.
Bladder tanks are components of balanced-pressure proportioning systems, which often are installed on helicopter decks and in small aircraft hangers, storage facilities, and warehouses. Chemguard UL Listed and FM Approved bladder tanks are available in vertical and vertical prepiped (25-4,500 gallons) and horizontal and horizontal prepiped (50-4,500 gallons) configurations.
Hi Expansion Foam Generators
Chemguard high-powered, high-expansion foam generators deliver high- or medium-expansion foams. Water, electric, or diesel powered, Chemguard high-expansion foam generators are primarily used for fire fighting in aircraft hangars and other structures, in mines, on ships and vehicles, and on military installations. Our foam generators also are effective in controlling fuel spill fires and wildland fire timber breaks.
Chemguard high-expansion foam generators are available in sizes from 1,000 to 26,400 cubic feet per minute. Smaller models are available for use as portable generators or in fixed installations.
Designed as air aspirating discharge devices, Chemguard foam makers are used principally for the protection of dikes, open floating-roof storage tanks, and rim seals, and where low-velocity foam streams are desired. Foam makers generally are installed in the line of a semi-fixed or fixed foam fire-protection system, mounted either horizontally or vertically.
UL Listed, Chemguard’s foam makers feature all-brass construction for use in harsh and corrosive environments. Foam maker air inlets are covered with stainless tell mesh, and the foam makers are supplied with standard NPT threaded inlets and outlets.
Designed to deliver foam directly onto the surface of flammable or combustible liquid and lessen submergence of the foam, Chemguard foam chambers are installed on flammable liquid storage tanks just below the roof joint. Flow rates for these UL Listed, type 2 discharge devices (NFPA 11), can vary, depending on the application.
Foam solution is supplied to a chamber from outside the hazard area, either from a fixed foam-storage and proportioning system or from a dry-pipe semi-fixed system that receives foam solution from a mobile foam apparatus. Upon entering the chamber the foam solution is expanded and then discharged against a deflector mounted inside the storage tank. The deflector (split or solid) directs the foam against the inside wall of the storage tank, reducing the agitation of the fuel.
Chemguard foam chambers are suitable for use with hydrocarbons or polar solvent fuels, as well as with all low-expansion foam concentrates, proteins, and synthetics.
Foam Storage Tanks
Standard Chemguard Atmospheric Foam Concentrate Storage Tanks are manufactured in Crosslinked polyethylene in vertical configuration. Chemguard also offers custom made tanks in stainless steel (304 or 316), carbon steel, and fiberglass. Vertical tanks are normally manufactured with flat bottoms and dome tops and horizontal tanks sit on saddles.
The fiberglass and polyethylene tanks do not have expansion domes due to the dome shape of the top of the tank. Inspection hatches are provided on both style tanks. Regardless of the material of construction, a pressure/vacuum vent must be installed. This is normally installed on the inspection hatch on the fiberglass or molded polyethylene tanks and on the cover of the expansion dome on the carbon or stainless steel tank.
Chemguard designs and manufactures balanced-pressure proportioning pump skids and in-line balanced-pressure (ILBP) proportioning pump skids for a wide range of applications. Often used for fire protection in large facilities – such as aircraft hangars and flammable-liquid storage areas – our pump skids are designed to deliver large quantities of foam concentrate, accurately proportioned into the water stream.
Chemguard pump skids are built to customer specifications and/or according to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. Supplied with manual override capabilities, our pump skid systems operate over a wide range of flows and pressures and do not require manual adjustment. Diesel and gasoline drivers are available.
Compatible with all Chemguard foam concentrates, our pump skids are fully tested at our manufacturing facility and shipped ready to install.
