For example, during the last , years of the Pleistocene Epoch (about million to 11, years ago), some 40 percent of the existing genera of large mammals in Africa and more than 70 percent in North America, South America, and Australia went ists estimate that the present-day extinction rate is 1, to 10, times the background.

For many years foams have been used to extinguish flammable liquid fires in the process industry, by the formation of a layer or blanket over the burning surface of the liquid.

INTRODUCTION Theories of fire suppression and extinction involve two essential variables: an extinguishing agent and a system or procedure for its application. Extinction of a hydrocarbon fire is a phenomenon of challenging magnitude and experience. Selection and application of special extinguishing agents in industrial hazords.

Polar‐solvent, aqueous film‐forming foams are an effective method of controlling extinction for fires involving water‐miscible fuels. John F. Riley. Ansul Co., Marinette, Wis. Author: John F. Riley. After reading Fire Hazards in Industry, any employer, safety professional or fire safety officer should be able to install a system for carrying out fire risk assessment.

In addition to sections relating to the legal aspects of fire prevention, the book explains the concepts of fire.

Fire control and extinction is achieved by rapid smothering and cooling. Fires involving solid material as well as flammable liquids can be controlled and extinguished using high expansion foam. It also has a special value for dealing with spillages of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Class A foams may be used as a firefighting agent or as a fire barrier.

When used as a wetting agent, the concentrate lowers the surface tension of the water, allowing better penetration into deep seated fires. As a fire barrier, Class A foams increase moisture con-tent in Class A combustibles, preventing the ignition of these type Size: 1MB.

Oil, Gas, Chemical, and Industrial Facilities. Foam fire suppression systems were originally designed to fight large oil fires. Today, they are still an effective means of fighting fires that deal with hazardous and flammable liquids like those used in refineries and manufacturing facilities.

Its role is to cool the fire and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the combustion. Fire-fighting foam was invented by the Russian engineer and chemist Aleksandr Loran in The surfactants used must produce foam in concentration of less than 1%.
