Frequently Asked Questions
How much FIREBULL® concentrate does an Enforcer® CAFS unit use?
We recommend that the unit is mixed at 3% which means 3 parts foam to 97 parts water. If using FIREBULL® Freeze Protected Pre-Mix you would fill the unit to full, as it is pre-mixed and not a concentrate.
Can I use my Enforcer® CAFS unit more than once?
Yes, it can be used many times during the unit's lifetime. After use, all that is necessary is to replace the nitrogen gas cylinder (refilled or exchanged at nearby welding supply) and add the proper percentage of FireAde and Water.
Do I have to keep my Enforcer® CAFS unit indoors?
No, but it is important that the unit is kept from freezing and protected from the sun's ultraviolet rays. Use of FireAde® Freeze Protected Pre-Mix is recommended. Please see our products page for more information on FireAde® Freeze Protected Pre-mix and other products.
What maintenance does Enforcer® CAFS require?
Little or no maintenance is required for the lifetime of the unit, providing reasonable care is taken to protect unit from freezing and it is shielded from the sun. It is necessary to check the pressure level in the nitrogen gas cylinder at least once a year.
How long does Enforcer® CAFS produced foam last?
The longevity of Class A foam depends on the relative humidity and wind. CAFS foam will likely last about two hours under average weather conditions, possibly longer under certain humidity conditions. After the foam disappears most surfaces stay wet for a longer period of time compared to water alone.
How much foam do Enforcer Compressed Air Foam Systems(CAFS) produce?
The compressed air foam systems produce approximately 20 gallons of foam for each gallon of water. Therefore 30 gallons of water makes 600 gallons of foam; 60 gallons of water makes 1,200 gallons of foam. Our units are available in 3 gallons, 10 gallons, 30 gallons, 60 gallons, and 200 gallons.
Do Enforcer® Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS) units need electricity?
No. Enforcer® CAFS are powered by compressed air or nitrogen gas.
