Fomax 7 is powered by a water turbine. All that is required for operation is a supply of synthetic foam compound, such as Towalex MB or Plurex high expansion foams, and a pressurised water supply (4 bar minimum). This enables large volumes of high expansion foam to be produced – expanded 1000 times or more to achieve rapid extinguishing with minimal water damage.
With its damage protected recessed controls and solid rubber, rot-proof feet, the unit is ruggedly yet practically designed for ease of use and stowage. Fomax 7 is ideally suited for all total flood applications such as warehouses, ship holds, engine rooms, machinery
spaces, electric cable ducting, chemical processing and refining plants and mines. Also effective for specialist applications such as blanketing LNG spill fires, controlling vapour release from toxic or flammable liquid spills and the inerting of tanks.
The Fomax 7 SE version is a portable smoke extraction unit powered by the water turbine and is suitable for smoke extraction in hazardous areas that need an intrinsically safe operation. Skum also offers fixed high expansion units for permanent installation and also the HotFoam units where inside air is an acceptable alternative to outside air for the generation of high expansion foam.
