Increasing of efficiency of fire suppression in oil and oil products storage tanks of 5000 m3 while blanketing a layer of combustible liquid with foam
This article describes a process of oil and petroleum products extinguishing in the vertical steel tanks by supplying low expansion film-forming foam in the bottom of the tank directly into fuel the layer. It is summarized the problem of extinguishing fires in floating roof tanks or pontoon by subsurface suppression.
