Foam proportioning system

Foam proportioning system:


All purpose usability

  • continuous foam proportioning
  • individual adjustable foam proportioning rate at each
  • outlet
  • Water or foam individual at each outlet
  • Suitable for every foam compound — even highly
  • viscous liquids
  • supply external or via foam tank
Foam proportioning system2

Easy operation

  • thanks to logic control system, operation is the same
  • as pump operation
  • manual adjustment of the proportioning rate at the
  • outlets
  • no priming pump for foam compound necessary


Easy to handle

  • no flushing of the foam pump necessary
  • no driving motor for foam pump
  • easy hydraulic regulation
  • • No foam compound in the water pump
  • • According to NFPA 1901 as “Demand balanced
  • pressure system”

Control panel:

Control panel:

Clearly arranged, rear mounted LCS control panel

control panel


With continuous foam proportioning rates at each outlet, enabling the simultaneous discharge of water from all or some outlets (e.g. for cooling), and foam from all or some outlets with different foam proportioning rates.
