Marine Fire Fighting Foam Analysis

Meeting safety, compliance, and regulatory requirements.

Most international safety organizations require that fire foam concentrates are tested on an annual basis. Fire foam storage containers operating under harsh environmental conditions, such as ships, terminals, offshore platforms, and airports, should be routinely monitored for fire foam contamination and deterioration.

Intertek provides fire fighting foam laboratory services for test low, medium and high expansion foam fire-fighting products. Fire foam testing is run to EN 1568 and ISO 7203 Standard specifications.
