In March 2013, more than 120 firemen from Panama participated in a demonstration on real fires at David in Chiriqui. A fire of 30 tyres has been extinguished with FAS Ultra and FREEFOR SF2. Full extinction was done in 5'35'' with 94 litres of water and less than 1 litre of foam additive. This exceptional result convinced the Fire Brigades of the great potential of FAS and the High Pressure Technology as effective and efficient answer to their daily fire outbreaks.
The event took place on the 18-19th of March 2013. 150 delegates from around the world attended the event.
3F introduced its latest innovations on foams and equipment.
Considered by the industry as an important event, major issues were presented and discussed.
An important point was presented by Dr Thierry Bluteau, who emphasized the latest development of a generation of Solvent-Free Foam –SF- to address the concerns regarding foam discharge into water courses.
3F was proud to present its SF foam range including Class A, Hi-EX and AFFF type foam concentrates.
NATURAL ENGLAND is an English Public body aiming to protect and improve the environment.
They selected FAS – High Pressure Systems – together with FREEFOR additive for their fire fighting operations ensuring that would not lead to detrimental effect on the environment. They successfully and easily put up a wild land fire of 150ha using the efficiency of FAS and FREEFOR and both products are an integral part of Natural England operations. We trust this leads to a major step forward in modern fire fighting techniques.
3F has been awarded the contract to supply ANCAP Refinery for the supply of CTD's dosing systems to protect their sites in Uruguay.
This milestone achievement opens the way in south America to leading innovative technologies for fire fighting operations.
3F launches on the market its latest innovation to address the post intervention after car accidents / fires : KLEAN, an easy-to-use cleaning concentrate which turns oil and grease spills into a readily digestable emulsion. Forceful application and water clean up will restore 100% the original grip on the road in minutes and avoid the long and hazardous exercise of collection and disposal. Usable at 3% ; recommended use with FAS.
