  • Total water used with foam

    I was wondering if someone had the formula to figure this out, or the answer to the question in regards to foam operations.

    If the truck carries 20 gallons of class A foam and it is proportioned at 0.1%, how many gallons of water will the truck flow before the foam tank is empty?

    Thanks!

    Dear ghod... The last time I checked they taught percentages in 4h or 5th grade. Seriously?

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

      Very Simple Math.

      Quantity of foam divided by percantage of concentration desired.

      20 gallon foam cell @ 0.1% = 20/.001 = 20,000 gallons of water.

      15 gallon foam cell @ 0.3% = 15/.003 = 5,000 gallons of water

      30 gallon foam cell @ 0.5% = 30/.005 = 6,000

      If you want to double check the math you can work it backwards, (6,000) gallons of water multiplied by percentage of concentration (.5%) 6,000 * .005 = 30 gallons of foam required to treat 6,000 gallons of water at .5% concentration.
