Technical information


FoamFatale™ is a high-tech fire protection system for storage tanks. This method has unique features and advantages over traditional technologies:

  • Fully autonomous, independent from external sources, does not require connection to fire water network or to any other supply systems (electricity, fire trucks, etc.).
  • The sytem does not require manpower resources to set up and operate at the scene of the fire.
  • The performance of the systems is enormous, the extinguishing time is reduced extremely (max. 2 minutes at every size of storage tank), so the product and the storage tank itself is saved, the air pollution is reduced to the minimum, there are no catastrophe situations.
  • No pumps, no proportioners, no aspirating devices etc. are needed, so the construction is simple, the reliability level and the success rate is very high.
  • Requires considerably lower capital investment in installation, operating and maintenance costs.
  • The fire protection system of the refinery is built up by independent protection installations, therefore there are no common elements of the system, which being destroyed can block the protection of the entire refinery.

Technical information

FoamFatale™ system eliminates the limitations of conventional systems. The concept of this new technology is that perfectly prepared foam is stored under pressure in a vessel. On release of the foam from the vessel, expanded foam is formed at the location where the expansion takes place. The patented system is called "Self-Expanding Foam" system (SEF®).

R&D Background

During several years of research our goal was to introduce a method of creating effective, environmentally safe fire fighting technology for storage tank fires in extreme circumstances (lack of water, lack of energy supply and human resources, plus extreme weather conditions). As a ground principle of redefining tactical instructions we intruduced the FoamFatale™ system to decrease burning time significantly.
