Bubble Party – Fluorine Free Firefighting Foams

Instructor: Brian Olsen

Time: 1:00-2:30

Location: Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center


With regulatory pressures mounting most AFFF manufacturers have curtailed production and shifted towards fluorine free firefighting foam alternatives. While this new generation of foam is largely untested in major incidents there has been significant large-scale testing performed by the oil and gas sector. In this session we will discuss the key differences between AFFF and the new SFFF foams. Additionally, we will walk through the progression of testing that has given many in the oil and gas sector confidence in their capabilities. Session includes video analysis of multiple large-scale tests.
