Fire Foam Concentrates

Buckeye Fire Equipment manufactures the widest selection of Earth-Friendly fire fighting foam concentrates in the industry. Fire Foam concentrates that independent tests have proven to be superior in quality and performance*.

Environmental Impact of Fire Foam

Buckeye fire foam concentrates are all manufactured without EPA reportable components, thus reducing environmental impact. By using only Earth-Friendly components, you are relieved of the major problems and burdensome paperwork that can result from the discharge of other foam concentrates. This environmental commitment in no way dilutes the fire-fighting effectiveness of Buckeye products. Every fire foam concentrate Buckeye manufactures is subjected to rigorous quality control standards and comprehensive testing to ensure complete reliability and maximum fire fighting performance.  Buckeye fire foam concentrates are biodegradable, low in toxicity and can be treated in sewage treatment plants.

Compatibility with other Fire Foams

Per the Buckeye Statement on Compatibility:

testing for compatibility with Ansul(Standard Viscosity Products), National Foam(Kidde), Chemguard and Angus has shown no signs of foam concentrate separation, no loss in foamability and no reduction in film-formation or sealability, when compared to base line samples on a standard array of test protocols. These tests detected no physical or chemical incompatibility or decrease in performance when compared to the standalone product samples.

In the event a supplier, whether manufacturer or distributor is adamant that the two products cannot be mixed together, ask for a letter that addresses the following two points:

  • The chemical reason why the two foam concentrates are not compatible
  • The performance reason why they are not compatible.

In some cases, perhaps on very special fuels, specific test data may not be available and as such replacement of the foam concentrate might not be practical. But this is not a compatibility issue; this is a fire performance issue.
