The greatest beneficiary of a compressed air foam system is the fire industry. Whenever a fire takes place, firemen fighting to douse the fire face many kinds of difficulties. One among them is extinguishing fires of fuel and heat loads types. In these circumstances, use of water only contains or delays extinguishment process.

Insurance underwriters generally impose limitations on warehouse and space utilization. In some cases, they prohibit use of available storage capacity. Conventional compressed air foam system has proved to be a very effective solution to this problem.

compressed air foam system or CAFS is a type of fire fighting solution that has capabilities of scaling according to suitability of an environment or structure. These systems are presently available in portable variety giving you freedom of easy movement during its use. It is a pumping system where compressed air is added through an entry point which helps in generation of foam. Incidents involving fire spreading at quick speed warrant use of these systems to prevent further fire. The dangers related to fire explosion due to presence of fuel is minimized.

In case of a massive fire, spreading in all directions, the use of CAFS proves beneficial and effective as it attacks fire from all three sides simultaneously. A foam blanket builds up that prevents fuel from reaching to source of oxygen. The CAFS very conveniently reaches out to walls and ceilings aiding a rapid reduction in generation of heat. Finding such a system in commercial establishment selling highly inflammable items is a common sight.

There are many important components in a compressed air foam system that comes to great relief while dousing a fire. For instance, it has a water source, a centrifugal pump, rotary air compressor, foam concentrate tanks, a foam proportioning and direct-injection system, a mixing chamber, control systems etc for accurate mix of water and air.
