Especially in the industrial sector, where alcohols and alcohol mixtures are used, but also in medical facilities where, for example, disinfectants are stored, fire protection must be met with more differentiated solutions.
The Jockel foam JoMix AB-AR is an alcohol-resistant foam which is suitable for extinguishing polar fires. When extinguishing polar fires, it forms a polymer film between the burning material and the extinguishing foam. In this way, the extinguishing foam is not destroyed by the alcohol of the burning liquid and can fully develop its extinguishing effect through a closed oxygen-inhibiting foam blanket.
For an optimal result, the matching of extinguishing agent and extinguisher is crucial. A stable coherent polymer film, which is decisive for a successful extinguishing operation, can only be formed with a gentle foam discharge through the extinguishing nozzle.
Suitable for extinguishing polar and non-polar liquids
Since the extinguisher can be used for both non-polar and polar fires, this extinguisher is ideal especially when the user is not 100% certain about the nature of the burning liquids or their mixtures.
With an extinguishing capacity of 6 LE, the fire extinguisher meets the minimum requirements for basic equipment of ASR A2.2.
The fire extinguisher can be used for incipient fires of fire class A of ember-forming substances, but also for incipient fires of fire class B. Due to its special suitability, it is suitable for incipient fires of both polar and non-polar liquids. Possible areas of application are therefore:
