Expert-Engineered Foam Fire Suppression Systems To Protect Your High-Risk Assets

With decades of expertise and proven product quality, Chamco is the company you can trust to provide industry-leading fire protection for bulk storage tanks, airports, aircraft hangars and other assets with flammable and combustible liquids.


Modular Foam Fire Suppression Systems

When it comes to preventing fires caused by flammable or combustible liquids, traditional wet sprinkler systems will do nothing to keep your assets protected. Chamco offers a variety of modular foam fire suppression systems that work to smother fires in an instant and reduce any combustion ability should a fire ignite in your facility. Our systems can be built to produce high expansion foams or low expansion foams depending on your product/application requirements.

Foam Generators

Ideal for protecting high-risk assets, this fire foam suppression system can fill expansive areas with high expansion firefighting foam. High expansion foam systems work by completely filling rooms or buildings to prevent the combustion of flammable vapours and liquids.

Foam Makers

Made with either a bladder tank or a foam pump generator combined with a foam concentrate tank, these fire foam suppression systems discharge low expansion foam that expands to many times the size of the flow.


How Chamco Helped a North American Energy Producer Protect Their Refinery Expansions

Due to an expansion of their refinery, a North American energy producer needed an upgrade to their existing fire foam packages. However, the underground piping at their refinery, tight time constraints, and regulatory requirements made this project a challenge. Learn how Chamco custom-designed their fire foam packages to overcome the challenges in a timely and compliant manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chamco’s foam fire fighting systems are most often used to protect bulk storage tanks, but they have also been used for other applications such as airports and aircraft hangars to provide reliable fire protection.

There are many different types of foam available on the market. Depending on the foam type used, there may be different toxicity issues. When using a foam product, you should always refer to the material safety data sheet for the potential risks associated with the product.

There are several types of firefighting foams available on the market and each has its own unique formula.

Commonly we use 3% Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) or 3% Alcohol Resistant Synthetic foam product. Each manufacturer’s fire fighting foam is a unique patented formulation specific to the manufacturer’s products.

Foam fire suppression systems extinguish a fire by cooling, coating, and smothering the fuel source that is on fire and preventing any contact between oxygen and the fuel source, eliminating the possibility of combustion.

Foam fire suppression packages are installed in conjunction with your firewater system which feeds water from the firewater system to the foam system. The water mixes with the foam concentrate and then is typically released through hoses or hydrants where the foam solution is required.
