Foam Equipment – Prima Units – Low Expansion (LX), Medium Expansion (MX) & Dual Units (LX-MX)
The Delta Fire range of portable foam equipment includes the Prima Foam Units.
These superb units are the ideal extinguisher tool for fuel/chemical spillages, car/skip fires,car ferry decks, flammable liquid stores, fuel loading racks, boiler rooms, ship’s engine rooms, paint and solvent stores etc and are widely used by industry professionals around the world including UK Fire & Rescue Services.
The Prima ia available in three options, firstly the LX Prima which comes with a low expansion foam branchpipe providing fast ‘knock-down’ performance at a safe distances, secondly the MX Prima which comes with a medium expansion foam branchpipe providing a thick blanket of foam for fast vapour suppression & finally the combination Prima LX/MX providing both low and medium expansion performance.
In many flammable liquid spill situations, portable foam or powder extinguishers are simply not adequate to suppress the fire quickly enough to prevent further spread. Low application rates and short running times mean that the fire can be out of control before help arrives. Delta Fire are specialists in the manufacture and supply of foam equipment and many years of design and development by Delta’s industry experts have resulted in the Prima units. One Prima Unit has the power & performance of 40 standard foam extinguishers.
Delta Fire Prima units only require a pressurised water supply for use. Typically this would be a standard fire hose reel or fire hydrant. Remarkably low pressures are required (as little as 2 bar) and at just 3½ bar the LX Prima will throw 6½ metres of low expansion foam.
Manufactured in the UK under an ISO 9001 Quality System.
