Whether it is an offshore oil platform or a land oil extraction platform, or an oil refinery, a large amount of crude oil is stored in pipelines, equipment and warehouses. Crude oil is extremely flammable. Any small open flame may cause explosion and large-area burning, and the reaction is violent, and it is very destructive to the damage of personnel and property. Smoke from combustion and explosions can also pollute the air. Therefore, when a fire occurs, it is very important to extinguish the fire quickly and control the spread of the fire.
By the way, we need to know what kind of fires are fires at oil mining platforms and refineries. According to the fire classification methods of the European Union and the United States, both crude oil and oil fires can be classified as CLASS B Fire. For this liquid fire, the best extinguishing agent is fire-fighting foam. Foam can seal the air on the fuel surface to prevent the ingress of external oxygen. And rely on its stability and flame resistance to prevent fuel evaporation and re-ignition. Block heat radiation and prevent other combustibles from being ignited.
Our protein foams and aqueous film-forming foams have excellent extinguishing and control effects on fires in oil mining and storage places. And for high-cold areas, foams with low freezing points can be customized.
