Delta Fire is recognised the world over for their ability to manufacture high-tech Foam Protection Packages to individual customer specifications from design, schematics and manufacture to testing, installation and commissioning providing a single-source solution to a wide range of Industries around the world.
The remit for this latest Venezuelan project was to provide bund and fuel storage tank protection as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Delta’s Technical Team benefit from an accumulation of many years industry experience in this field and were able to design two fully integrated Foam Skids to achieve their customer’s very specific directive, all in accordance with NFPA11 requirements.

A further package of Hose Cabinets equipped with Delta’s Nova Type 3 Fire Hose and Attack 500 Fire Nozzles completes the package.

These Top Pourers provide flammable liquid storage protection by a pre-set flow of foam onto the tank shell gradually cooling and pouring gently onto the fuel surface.
