HYDRAL 3 is an aqueous film forming foam concentrates (AFFF) based on fluorosurfactants, hydrocarbon tensides and glycol ethers for use at 3% induction ratio.
AFFF is a synthetic concentrate comprised of detergent and fluorocarbon surfactant that form foam with the inherent ability to produce a vapour suppressing aqueous film on the surface of the hydrocarbon fuels.

AFFF provides a rapid flame knock down on class B fires involving hydrocarbon fuels such as oil, petroleum and aviation fuels.
On application, the foam spreads rapidly to form an aqueous film and foam blanket. The aqueous film suppresses the release of fuel vapours. The foam blanket effectively excludes oxygen from the fuel surface, extinguishing the fire and preventing re-ignition.
Additionally it provides a cooling function on the fuel by enclosed water and makes the water float on fuel surfaces in spite of it’s usually higher density.

Tubular containment barriers for hydrocarbons & oils

Barreras de contención tubulares de hidrocarburos y aceites

Tubular containment barriers for hydrocarbons  & oils LIFECHEMS are the ideal product for a rapid absorption of oil spills in water or on land.

These tubular hydrocarbon containment barriers are manufactured 100% in polypropylene. This high quality manufacturing material repels water. Therefore, they are ideal for use in marine environments or on land when it rains, since they maximize the absorption of oils.

Barriers have ring and carabiner at their ends. This allows all necessary barriers can be joined unlimitedly.

The containment barriers are presented in two formats:

  • OB 13-3 is a barrier 13 centimeters in diameter and 3 meters long. They come in bags of 4 units, for a total of 12 meters and 180 liters of absorption capacity.
  • OB 15-3 is a barrier 13 centimeters in diameter and 5 meters long. They come in bags of 2 units, for a total of 10 meters and 168 liters of absorption capacity.

The absorption capacity of these tubular containment barriers has been calculated according to the EDANA standard. This standard put a sample of 20W50 in an oil bath at 25°C and in a water bath at 20°C until saturation and with a weight of 2 min. vertical drainage.
