Johnson Controls (Milwaukee, WI) has launched the new NFF-331 3%x3% Non-Fluorinated Firefighting Foam Concentrate under its ANSUL, CHEMGUARD and SKUM brands. Designed as a flexible and efficient replacement for existing alcohol resistant aqueous film-forming foam (AR-AFFF) concentrates in conventional foam sprinkler systems, the NFF-331 concentrate has been tested and demonstrated to provide excellent fire suppression on a wide range of Class B, hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires.
As the industry transitions toward new solutions to respond to current regulations, many customers are seeking non-fluorinated products to make the trade from legacy products as simple yet effective as possible, according to Johnson Controls.
NFF-331 foam concentrate has achieved UL 162-listed application rates similar to legacy AR-AFFFs with various upright and pendent sprinklers on hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuels. Listings include some of the lowest non-fluorinated foam application rates for polar solvents in the industry. In addition to quick and effective fire suppression, the low application rates can help simplify system designs, facilitate ease of retrofit and minimize water requirements.
