Electric compressor integrated on mobile fire extinguisher application

MicroCAFS manufactures compressed air foam systems, which can be used with highly viscous extinguishing agents that are conveyed at high flow rates. The compressed air foam is very environmentally friendly and can reach higher than conventional water-foam systems. The solution is enabled by Atlas Copco’s E-Air 900T electric compressor, which delivers the power needed to shoot the water-foam mixture up to 80 meters in the air.

The Bavarian company has made a name for itself in the industry over the last 20 years by supplying the market with compact compressed air-driven units, powerful vehicle systems, pressure proportioning systems, and stationary solutions for industrial applications requiring high flow rates of compressed air foam. Its unique selling point, however, is the foam extinguishing system. The systems offer exceptional flow rate values, ideally suited to help tackle industrial fires: the largest system can deliver approximately 32,000 liters of foam mixture per minute. Around 6,500 liters of the mixture is water mixed with a foaming agent, and the rest is compressed air. Using compressed air foam offers several advantages compared to regular foam, including substantially higher efficiency.
