Abstract

Purpose. Research of factors contributing to the decrease of persistence of foaming agent solutions for fire extinguishing during their long-term storage as part of fire extinguishing automatic systems.

Methods. Laboratory research of the rate and resistant foam properties and the hydrogen index of foaming agents for fire extinguishing, as well as research of the corrosion activity of the foaming agent solutions with the addition of stabilizing ingredients.

Findings. The reasons for reducing the persistence of foaming agent solutions for fire extinguishing are established, methods for increasing their retention period are proposed.

Application field of research. The research results can be used in the development and production of new foaming agents for fire extinguishing and their storage in fire extinguishing automatic systems.
