Fixed Foam Systems & Proportioning Systems


Product: Spectrum Bladder Tanks-Vertical Configuration

Description:
Spectrum Vertical Bladder tanks provide dependable and cost effective foam fire protection for a wide variety of flammable/combustible liquid hazards. Used in conjunction with either one, or multiple ratio flow controllers (installed adjacent to the tank), the all-hydraulic balanced pressure proportioning system stores, delivers and proportions foam without dependence on external foam concentrate pumping. Only water under pressure is required for system operation. The Spectrum Vertical Bladder Tank is a cylindrical carbon steel ASME pressure vessel containing a flexible polymeric elastomer inner bladder which encapsulates the foam concentrate. This bladder physically separates stored foam concentrate from the water supply. When the system is activated, water is directed into the tank shell, which then pressurizes the space between the flexible bladder and the interior tank wall. This water pressure causes the bladder to collapse, which then dispenses foam concentrate out through distribution piping and (ultimately) into the ratio controller(s). The ratio controllers modified venturi creates a metering pressure drop in the fire water line, allowing foam concentrate to pass through a fixed orifice plate and enter the fire water piping at the designated proportioning rate. In installations where the bladder normally is under pressure (wet pipe, reaction, or when the deluge valve is downstream from the ratio controller), a normally-closed actuated concentrate valve (electric or hydraulic) isolates the foam concentrate until energized. Interior/exterior finished in red enamel.

Standard Spectrum Bladder tank trim includes: 1. ASME Code Pressure Vessel 2. Flexible Concentrate Bladder 3. Shell Side (water) Vent Valve 4. Bladder (concentrate) Vent Valves 5.

Foam Systems - Around The Pump Eductors


Product: Spectrum ATP Eductors, 2 & 3 - Grooved Type

Description:
The Spectrum Around The Pump Eductor is a fundamental, economical, yet proven way to produce foam on a fire truck. In operation a portion of the fire water discharge is diverted to the eductor. The eductor picks up foam concentrate from the on-board atmospheric foam tank and delivers it to the suction side of the water pump. A metering valve such as the Spectrum Multiport Metering Valve controls the amount of concentrate entering the system. This, along with the rate of discharge, determines the solution flow rate; typically from 1% to 6%. All discharges in this type of system will produce foam solution. Eductors are constructed of brass to provide years of trouble free service.

Foam Systems - Multi Port Metering Valve


Product: Spectrum Multi-Port Metering Valve Air Actuated

Description:
The Spectrum Multi-Port Metering Valve offers the simplicity and reliability of fixed orifice metering coupled with the flexibility of eight (8) air actuated ports. The valve can be custom configured to have from 1 to 8 ports. Each port can be selected to meter solution flows from 30 gpm @ 3% up to 750 gpm @ 6%. Each orifice can easily be removed, replaced, added or changed in the field. Each active port features a single acting spring loaded air actuator. This air actuator features a manual over-ride that will allow the system to manually function in the event of air system loss. The construction is Red Brass with Stainless Steel trim and positive rubber valve seats. This valve is used in conjunction with the proper Spectrum Eductor in an Around The Pump (ATP) Foam System. Primarily used in Airport Crash Trucks, this system offers economic reliability. As each discharge is opened an air signal is sent to the associated metering valve port. As each valve opens, more predetermined amounts of concentrate enter the system to maintain either a 1, 3 or 6% proportioning rate

Maximum Positive Pressure Rating is 25 psig

Foam Systems- Balanced Pressure Components


Product: Spectrum Ratio Controllers, 2 & 2.5 -Threaded Type

Description:
Ratio Controllers are modified venturi foam proportioners that accurately meter pressurized foam concentrate into the firewater stream. These foam proportioners are used in conjunction with balanced pressure systems, such as bladder tanks and pumped proportioning skids. In operation, firewater flows through the modified venturi, creating an area of lower pressure, which is referred to as the metering pressure drop. This metering pressure drop is directly effected by the firewater velocity as it flows through the venturi. The (1%, 3% or 6%) concentrate-towater ratio is maintained over the entire flow range of each size ratio controller. However, each size ratio controller has a minimum flow rate/velocity requirement, and these minimums must be maintained for proper ratio controller operation. Each Spectrum Ratio Controller consists of the following components: body; metering orifice; inlet nozzle. These components are constructed of ASTM 85-5-5-5 bronze. The inlet nozzle is tapered and machined to a smooth finish to maximize water stream efficiency through the venturi. The foam concentrate metering orifice is sized to the exact type and percentage of foam concentrate to be used. Both the inlet nozzle and metering orifice are secured by a stainless steel retaining ring.

Product: Hydraulically Actuated Foam Concentrate Control ValveStandard Port Waterway

Description:
The Spectrum Standard Port Hydraulically Actuated Foam Concentrate Control Valve is typically installed in the concentrate piping between the foam concentrate storage tank and ratio controller (proportioner). When used in a balanced pressure proportioning system, as well as most other foam concentrate applications, the valve position is normally closed, preventing foam concentrate from entering into the ratio controller. Upon system actuation, the valve will automatically open, supplying foam concentrate to the specific (flowing) ratio controller.

Actuator Features

Balanced Pressure Proportioning Systems


Product: Pump Injection Type, with Ratio Controller on Skid

Description:
The Spectrum Pump Injection Type Balanced Pressure Proportioning Skid is a completely self-contained system which automatically proportions foam concentrate over a wide range of flows and pressures, without manual adjustment. The skid is installed adjacent to an atmospheric foam concentrate storage tank, and consists of the following major components: positive displacement foam concentrate pump; electric (or diesel) driver; pump starter/controller; pressure balancing valve; ratio controller(s); duplex gauge; interconnecting pipe, valves, and fittings. In operation, foam liquid is drawn from the atmospheric concentrate storage tank and pumped to the skid-mounted ratio controller. The back-pressure type balancing valve, installed on the tank return line regulates the amount of foam concentrate which is returned to the storage tank, and balances the foam concentrate pressure to match the water pressure at the ratio controller. Water and foam pressures are monitored by a duplex pressure gauge. Manual override of the system is accomplished through the use of a manual globe valve, installed in piping which bypasses the diaphragm control valve. Field connections on the skid are limited to: water inlet to ratio controller; foam solution discharge from ratio controller; electrical service to the pump motor starter/ controller; foam concentrate suction and return connections to the foam storage tank. All piping connections on the skid are 150# flanges.

Balanced Pressure Proportioning Systems


Product: Inline Balanced Pressure Proportioning Modules

Description:
Spectrum Inline Balanced Pressure Proportioners (ILBPs) comprise a complete foam storage, delivery and proportioning system, when used in conjunction with properly sized atmospheric foam tanks, foam pumps, back-pressure control valves and concentrate distribution piping. When supplied with foam concentrate under adequate pressure, they are designed to accurately introduce the foam concentrate into the water stream over a wide range of flows and pressures by automatically responding to variations in system demand. ILBPs provide accurate foam concentrate introduction at either single/local, or multiple/remote system proportioning location(s). Each ILBP system riser is calculated for system demand and then equipped with the properly sized proportioner.

InLine Balanced Pressure System Schematic

Operation:
The Inline Balanced Pressure Proportioning System utilizes a foam pump, which pressurizes the distribution piping and ultimately supplies foam concentrate to each ILBP. Foam concentrate is stored in an atmospheric foam tank. Pumped foam concentrate that is not delivered to the system is returned to the storage tank via a back-pressure control valve. Concentrate discharge pressure is regulated into the system by this control valve, which can be adjusted to assure that foam concentrate is supplied at pressures that exceed system static water pressure. Concentrate supply piping should be designed and sized so that residual concentrate pressure exceeds (15 psi minimum) the residual water pressure at the respective inlet of each ILBP. A pressure throttling valve is located on the concentrate inlet trim of each ILBP. The pressure throttling valve senses foam concentrate residual pressure and automatically modulates, resulting in the balancing of the concentrate pressure with the water pressure. A duplex gauge provides the comparative readings of concentrate and water pressure at the ILBP inlets. Foam concentrate is then introduced to the ratio controller (proportioner) at a pressure that is equal to (balanced with) the inlet water pressure. A modified venturi in the ratio controller body creates a temporary pressure drop in the water stream, which then meters the proper amount of foam concentrate into the system.

Foam Systems- Line Proportioners (Eductors)


Product: Spectrum Line Proportioners

Description:
Spectrum Line Proportioners provide both fundamental and economical flammable fire protection, when properly designed and installed into a fixed foam storage and distribution system. Line Proportioners are constant flow, in-line devices that draw a fixed amount of foam concentrate through a metering orifice into a pressurized water stream. They are available in a wide range of flow rates. Foam solution outlet recovery is a nominal 65% of water inlet pressure. Because they are backpressure sensitive, each proportioner must be precisely matched to the foam making end-of-line devices. System flow rate, as well as adequate residual pressure at each nozzle are the primary design considerations when determining the Line Proportioner water inlet pressure. Even through they are capable of operating at water inlet pressures as low as 70 psi, most foam systems will require a minimum water inlet pressure of 100 psi, or greater. Line Proportioners are constructed of cast brass and are equipped with either a 1% or 3% metering orifice (specify). Line Proportioners are used in conjunction with an atmospheric foam storage tank. The storage tank trim should be equipped with a top-mounted pressure vacuum vent, as well as properly-sized rigid foam concentrate suction piping with slotted end, extending to near the tank bottom.
