Portable equipment for projecting extinguishing agents supplied by firefighting pumps. Portable foam equipment - High expansion foam generators PN16
Overview What is BS EN 16712-4 - High expansion foam generators about? BS EN 16712 is a European Standard that discusses portable foam equipment. The main objective of the BS EN 16712 series is to ensure high performance of firefighting BS EN 16712-4 is the fourth part of the series that applies to high expansion foam generators, having an expansion ratio greater than 200:1, whose only source of external power is the pressure and/or flow of the water supply to the device. BS EN 16712-4 is used by fire and rescue services and contains their specification and test procedures. NOTE: BS EN 16712-4 does not cover misting applications. NOTE: In BS EN 16712-4, the term “foam generator” also refers to “high expansion foam generator. Who is BS EN 16712-4 - High expansion foam generators for? BS EN 16712-4 on high expansion foam generators is relevant to: Portable foam equipment manufacturers High expansion foam generator manufacturers Product design engineers Fire safety department Oil and gas industry Marine industry Why should you use BS EN 16712-4 - High expansion foam generators? High expansion foam generator is a device, with or without self-inducting system, which produces foam with an expansion ratio greater than 200:1. However, for the optimal functioning and durability of foam generators, it is necessary to comply with recognised best industry practices. BS EN 16712-4 provides best industry guidance on materials and components, dimensions, mass and flow rate. BS EN 16712-4 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations, or hazardous events, with the exception of noise, relevant to high expansion foam generator, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. As a result, you can ensure that the mechanical hazards arising from moving parts, poor handling and lack of stability during operation, are minimized. Overall, you can ensure that BS EN 16712-4-compliant high expansion foam generators operate for long periods without the risk of product failure. If you are a manufacturer, compliance with BS EN 16712-4 can ensure the high expansion foam generators meet required performance criteria for optimum protection during a fire outbreak.
