Make Flammable Liquids Non-Flammable!
Most flammable liquid spills are not ignited, yet the most common method for dealing with the situation is by using foam. Not only is this very costly, but you still have to clean up the mess afterwards. And what do you do if the spill has gone into the sewer system?
For most everyday spills use our emulsifier poured directly in at a rate of 20 to 1 (10 to 1 for extremely volatile liquids), agitate and flush with water until milky. The area will be totally safe from ignition, doubly protected with an added film forming agent and the hazardous liquid broken down for easy and natural cleanup. For the large spills you use the same product at a 1% flow through a conventional foam system, a little more agitation and flush away the problem.
Flash Preventing Emulsifier can be used to safely neutralize any non-ignited hydrocarbon spill big or small. This includes oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene, etc. This product is used by fire departments, haz-mat teams, gas stations, manufacturing plants, trucking companies, airline companies and many more organizations that store, handle or transport petroleum based products. It's used on spills above or below surface, in sewer systems, in gas tanks at car accidents, to change the class when hauling and dumping flammable waste, on water surfaces such as lakes and ponds and much, much more.
How is it used?
70% of the flammable liquid spills that occur in our country today are, in fact, not ignited. Of those 90% are small enough to be safely handled without a foam system. Our product is available in gallon containers that have a hand held trigger type sprayer that has proven to be all that is necessary for application on those small situations. In these cases a simple garden hose can supply the water. Pressurized extinguishers, Hudson sprayers and Indian tanks can serve well for small to moderate spills. For the large spills a conventional foam system is recommended. Before using this product test drills should be performed to ascertain the best applications for your situations.
Why not just use foam?
Flash Preventing Emulsifier has three major advantages over foam. First and foremost is cost. Independent studies have shown that when you add up the total cost of equipment, man hours and materials our product reduces costs by as much as 90%. Secondly is that emulsifier can be used in places that foam can't such as sewer systems and underground storage tank leaks. Incidentally, it will also do a great job in cleaning the undercarriages and engines of fire apparatus or anything that has grease and oil on its surface. Finally is cleanup. If you use foam or any absorbing type product you still have to clean it up and dispose of it. In most situations, when using our product and providing you've added sufficient water, the spill can safely be allowed to dissipate.
