After 2 friends cars catching on fire – both force induced I figure this was cheap insurance and better than having an extinguisher.
What I purchased is called “Firecharger” that is an Aqueos Film Forming Foam (AFFF).
The foam acts as a blanket source to smother and cool pooling hydrocarbon liquid while additionally acting as a vapor suppressant to aid in preventing re-ignition of the hazard area.
The only downside to this setup is that the container always needs to be checked to ensure the tank is not empty.
Let’s hope I never have to use this.
It’s a pretty easy setup. Pull the pin and then pull the lever.
Here you see the CO2 Canister.
