Foam Suppression Systems: Advanced Fire Protection for High-Risk Environments

Foam suppression systems are a highly effective fire protection solution for high-risk environments such as industrial facilities, fuel storage areas, flammable liquid storage, heliports, and airports. Our foam suppression systems offer advanced defense against flammable liquid fires, ensuring swift and effective response in the event of a fire emergency. We offer foam suppression solutions for both land based applications and marine applications, partiuclarly the new USCG Approved Haven Green by Hiller.

Importance of Foam Suppression Systems

Foam suppression systems play a critical role in fire protection for high-risk environments by:

  • Specialized Protection: Addressing the specific fire risks posed by flammable liquids, providing tailored protection for environments with high potential for such fires.
  • Effective Blanket Coverage: Forming a thick  blanket over the fuel, preventing the release of flammable vapors and suppressing the fire.
  • Rapid Suppression: Swiftly extinguishing flammable liquid fires, minimizing damage and ensuring business continuity.

Benefits of Foam Suppression Systems

Implementing a foam suppression system offers a multitude of advantages, including:

  • Versatile Application: Suitable for a wide range of high-hazard environments, including those with flammable liquid storage and processing.
  • Rapid Fire Knockdown: Quickly suppressing both hydrocarbon and polar-solvent flammable liquid fires, preventing their escalation and minimizing the risk of property damage.
  • Sustained Fire Control: Forming a lasting barrier against re-ignition, providing continued protection even after the initial suppression.

How Foam Suppression Systems Work

Foam suppression systems operate by discharging a proportioned solutions of foam concentrate and water, which expands to form a blanket that suppresses the fire, cools the fuel, and prevents re-ignition through vapor mitigation.

Installation Process

Our expert team follows a meticulous process to ensure the seamless installation of foam suppression systems:

  • Thorough Assessment: Conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the environment to determine the most effective system layout and coverage.
  • Customized Design: Tailoring the system to address the unique fire risks posed by flammable liquids, ensuring optimal protection.
  • Professional Installation: Deploying the system with precision and expertise, adhering to industry standards and regulations for reliable performance.

Maintenance Requirements

Regular maintenance is crucial for the optimal functionality of foam suppression systems. Our services encompass:

  • Scheduled Inspections: Periodic checks to ensure the system’s readiness and compliance with safety standards.
  • Component Servicing: Addressing any issues and maintaining system components to uphold reliable performance.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring adherence to all relevant regulations and standards through diligent maintenance practices.

Hiller Hose Reels

The Foam Fire Fighting Station, designed by Herbert S. Hiller, is a reliable system capable of controlling fires and spills of flammable and combustible liquids. One person can efficiently operate the device to its full potential with the necessary speed and effectiveness to deliver foam to the required area in an emergency. This self-contained unit requires only water pressure to operate and is designed for installation in a fixed location such as processing, storage or handling area.

Common Applications:

  • Oil rigs and other offshore facilities
  • Oil fields
  • Mining operations
  • Forestry service
  • Industrial facilities
  • Warehouses
  • Testing facilities


  • Cost-effective
  • Penetrates fuels extinguishing fire efficiently
  • Insulates fuels from oxygen
  • Reflects radiant heat and is highly visible

Investing in a foam suppression system is a proactive measure to protect high-risk environments from the devastating impact of flammable liquid fires. With our expertise and commitment to safety, we provide tailored solutions to meet your specific fire suppression needs.
