Full scale fire tests conducted by the NFPA and other International bodies have shown that foam enhanced sprinkler systems give superior performance over conventional sprinkler systems in flammable liquid risks.

They provide rapid extinguishment, and lower the risk of re-ignition. In addition, they also reduce the system water requirements and minimise the risk of post fire pollution and damage to the environment and wildlife.

Water alone will not, in general, extinguish fires involving flammable gases, liquefied flammable gases, and flammable liquids having flash points below 200° F (93° C). The sprinkler or deluge system requires foam enhancement to be effective in these situations. Typical applications are process hazards, petro-chemical and pharmaceutical plant.
