|“Foam Technology offers
two separate Service Divisions, one servicing Foam Systems and one
for Service of Safety Related Items They are each described as follows:”
Foam Technology, Inc. maintains a qualified service staff to provide
a wide array of services for new foam systems as well as scheduled
maintenance and repair for current systems.
Foam testing is done to verify that new and existing foam systems
perform to original design criteria. We work to provide testing and
maintenance with minimal disruption to the operating schedules of
our clients. Our test procedures reduce foam liquid used in testing
to minimize your costs, clean-up and down-time.
Foam fire fighting systems are specialized and require service to
be performed by authorized, factory-trained technicians.
Foam systems minimize loss from a flammable liquid fire or chemical
release. Inspections and maintenance must be performed on a regular
basis to insure optimum system operation.
National Fire Protection Association publication NFPA 11, Standard
for Low Expansion Foam, 1998 Edition Chapter 8 recommends inspections
and tests be conducted annually and defines the testing and maintenance of:
Foam Producing Equipment
Fixed Discharge Outlets
Inspection and testing of foam systems is defined in Chapters 10 &
11 of NFPA Standard #11 2005 Edition. Chapter 11-1 Periodic Inspection
states that all foam systems shall be thoroughly inspected and checked
for proper operation at least annually. The goal of the test and inspection
shall be to ensure that the system is in full operating condition
and that it remains in that condition until the next inspection. Inspection
reports shall be filed with the owner. Regular service contracts are
Our service technicians are qualified to:

Fire pump testing - NFPA 25
Foam Truck Service:
Foam pumper trucks are foam systems on wheels. Maintenance of these
trucks is often more complex than maintenance of fixed foam systems.
NFPA 1910 and 1911 address the special requirements of these sophisticated
vehicles as needing routine maintenance on: power trains, engine and
transmission, water pump, and foam system components.
Foam Technology recognizes the importance of having a foam truck’s
foam system and water pump in prime condition to fight a fire when
the need arises. Each vehicle requires service by trained technicians.
Our representatives are factory trained in the service and maintenance
of foam systems and water pumps. They also have years of field experience
that allow them to analyze problems and make necessary repairs.
FIRE AND SAFETY INSPECTION DIVISION
For the past ten years, Foam Technology, Inc. has been exclusively
in the foam business. We design, sell and service foam systems used
for fighting flammable liquid fires.
In November 2002, we expanded our base by offering a new service department
to inspect and test Fire and Safety Equipment.
Fire and safety systems are specialized and designed to ensure the
protection of both life and property. We believe that only trained
personnel should service these systems. We now offer inspection, testing
and maintenance of the following:
Foam truck testing
Emergency wash stations
connections Fire alarm systems
Our inspections comply with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
standards, state and local code requirements and manufacturer’s design
Detailed service reports are provided, summarizing test results, inspection
findings and recommendations. These reports will not only provide
a permanent record of your inspections, but will also allow you to
keep management, insurance companies and fire officials informed,
thereby preventing costly non-compliant fines.
The Fire and Safety Division of Foam Technology is committed to providing
customers with the same high quality workmanship that we offer in
our other divisions.
