Fight Fire with Foam!

Tri-Max 30

TRI-MAX portable compressed air foam systems are available in any size to fit your needs. Handheld 3-gallon extinguishers will handle most small to medium size class A and B fires. The larger 30-gallon unit provides heavy duty fire fighting capability. The superior foam blanket and environmentally friendly agent minimizes water damage and protects exposures from re-flash. All systems can be easily recharged in the field. (Wheeled Skid, & Hose Reel units are available.) Alaska TRI-MAX can special order any unit you desire ranging in size from a 3-gallon portable unit to a 200-gallon truck-mounted unit.

The specifically formulated TRI-MAX freeze proof foam solution provides freeze protection to -40 degrees F. TRI-MAX systems are ideally suited for cold weather application.

PERFORMANCE:

This TRI-MAX unit is capable of producing up to 60 gallons of fire fighting foam with a flow rate of 90 gpm. Duration time is approximately 40 to 80 seconds depending on the discharge rate. When discharged, a foam coverage of 400 sq. ft. with a discharge distance of 35 feet or more can be realized.

SIZE AND WEIGHT:

The unit is compact and portable with a height of 26 in. and a width of 9½ in. A fully charged system weighs approximately 36 pounds. This unit is great for fighting fires on board fishing and pleasure crafts. It can be used anywhere there is a need to fight a fire.

AGENT TANK:

The agent tank holds 30 gallons of pre-mix foam agent and is manufactured in accordance with ASME standards. The unit includes a fill funnel plus a garden hose adapter to facilitate easy foam and water filling. The tank is coated with an epoxy polyurethane red paint.

TRANSPORT FRAME:

A tubular steel framework supports the agent tank, two (2) high pressure air vessels and discharge hose. The unit incorporates a “roll bar” design to protect components from accidental damage. Two (2) large semi-pneumatic tires plus two (2) swivel wheels and tow bar allow the unit to be horizontally towed and maneuvered at the fire scene or to be wheeled and positioned vertically. The frame, roll bar and tow unit are coated with an epoxy polyurethane yellow paint.

AIR SUPPLY:

Two (2) 80 cu. ft. 3000 psi Scuba air cylinders are provided with each unit. One (1) air cylinder is capable of discharging the full agent tank at normal blend-air settings. High pressure air hose and connections are rated for 5000 psi. One or two high volume air regulators (87 cfm, 155 psi ) are provided and matched to the discharge flow rating. All low pressure air hose are steel braided, ¼ in. 300 psi, 210 degrees F. All ball valves are rated for 400 psi. A pressure relief valve is provided, set at 200 psi, for added protection. A pressure gauge is provided to indicate system operating pressure.

DISCHARGE SYSTEM:

50 feet of 1 in. rubber discharge hose is provided ( maximum hose lay - 500 feet ). A blend-air valve is conveniently located to adjust the foam expansion ratio from 5:1 to 20:1 or more. The pressurization is created by a quick opening valve on the low pressure side of the regulator, allowing the system to be stored and transported without pressure until needed for fire fighting ( activation time 5 sec.).

PERFORMANCE:

The unit is capable of discharging up to 600 gpm of fire fighting foam. Duration time shall be from 1½ to 6 minutes depending on discharge rate. Foam coverage distance is 75 feet or more!

SIZE AND WEIGHT:

The unit is compact and portable with a height of 36 in., width 33 in. and a length of 44 in. A fully charged 2-bottle unit weighs approximately 602 pounds.

OPTIONAL:

The TRI-MAX 30 skid unit is also available with 50 ft. of 1 in. hose, a spray nozzle, and hose reel support for mounting. The specifically formulated TRI-MAX freeze proof foam solution provides freeze protection to -40 degrees F. TRI-MAX systems are ideally suited for cold weather application.
