Unitor Low Expansion Foam Fire Extinguishing System 

Effective protection of open space areas
Unitor Low expansion foam fire extinguishing system uses a range of  non-toxic protein or synthetic foams tested to MSC cir. 1312. the systems consist of a GRP storage tank (to avoid foam contamination), fixed monitors, a proportioner, portable applicators, pumps and control panels meeting the latest FSS rulings. The system provides safe and effective protection, and is harmless to the crew and environment.

Depending on vessel design needs, monitors, portable applicators and foam spray nozzles can be used individually or in conjunction to build an effective foam fire fighting system that will quickly and effectively extinguish a fire. Fixed  monitors are used to fight fire from a predetermined safe distance, while portable applicators cover shadow areas not reachable by the monitors. The monitors are adjustable and can be used in jet or fog mode.

As an extinguishing medium, foam is lighter than the combustion materials.It consequently forms a stable foam blanket sealing against oxygen and effectively extinguishing the fire while reducing radiated heat.
