Firefighting foam is made up of three elements: water, air and foam concentrate. Combined, these three ingredients form a foam that blankets the fuel while depriving the fire of oxygen, cooling the fuel and suppressing flammable vapors. Foam agents include: Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF), Alcohol-Resistant Concentrates (ARC), Protein Foam Concentrates, Fluoroprotein Foam Concentrates and High Expansion Foam Concentrates. Hiller specializes in Hiller Hose Reels, VRP with Haven Foam and FiFi Systems. We also feature REHEALING Foam Concentrate.
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.
VRP with Haven Foam
As a key component of Hiller’s customizable marine skids, Hiller’s VRP grants users the ability to run the foam system at a wide range of pressure options. The system is designed to accurately proportion the foam concentrate into the water stream to meet a variety of fire suppression needs, effectively replacing the need to have multiple proportioners to properly cover shipboard demands
FiFi systems provide off-ship or external firefighting capability for a vessel. These systems are commonly used on vessels whose primary or secondary role is fire protection of other vessels or structures. The Hiller Companies designs, installs and maintains FiFi systems and offers a range of capabilities that includes ship self-protection capability.
REHEALING Foam Concentrate
RE-HEALING™ foam concentrates from SOLBERG effectively extinguish Class B fire with no environmental impact. They are an environmentally sustainable fluorosurfactant and fluoropolymer-free firefighting foam. This foam is used in fresh, salt or brackish water. It has effective burn back resistance due to its remarkable flow and rapid sealing characteristics.
