Pyrocool Tests

      6/28/1999

There follows a description of a recent demonstration of Pyrocool given to the Jamaica Fire Brigade by Capt. David Routledge of The Maritime Consultancy Ltd. "We first set fire to one half drum three quarters full of gasoil and let it burn for 3 minutes. The Jamaica Fire Brigade Team then extinguished it with conventional foam in 30 seconds. A second identical half drum of gasoil was then set on fire and allowed to burn for 5 minutes. During this time the hose was cleared of foam. When the drum was glowing red with heat, the Team extinguished it using Pyrocool in a 1% mixture which was the lowest mix that their eductor could give. Pyrocool is normally applied in a 0.4% solution. It took 10 seconds to extinguish the fire and I immediately placed my bare hand on the steel drum to demonstrate the cooling effect of Pyrocool. With this cooling effect it is easy to see that re-ignition is prevented and that the extinguishment takes one third to one quarter of the time for conventional foam to work . Fire-fighters are protected by the cooling effect, less water is used and the product is NON-TOXIC, NON-HAZARDOUS and BIODEGRADABLE."

The Maritime Consultancy Ltd. is the sole distributor of this marvelous product in Jamaica. Contact us for details on prices delivery dates and technical details. As a marine fire-fighting concentrate it is economical and versatile to use and kills fires rapidly. It has been used in many shoreside applications.
