Abstract:

The objective of this test series was to qualify 34 and 1 percent Aqueous Film Forming Foam AFFF concentrate for use in Air Force fire fighting vehicles. Specific objectives were 1. Determine the availability of AFFF in 34 and 1 percent concentrations from manufacturers on the Qualified Products List QPL. 2. Evaluate 34 and 1 percent AFFF from each manufacturer in accordance with MIL-F-24385C test procedures and National Fire Protection Association NFPA Standard 412. 3. Determine the compatibility of the concentrates with existing Air Force fire fighting vehicles P-2, P-4 and P-19. Demonstrate that these vehicles can adequately meter these fractional percentage concentrates. 4. Conduct a minimum of 12 large-scale 8,000 sq ft JP-4 pool fire tests to compare the effectiveness of the reduced percentage AFFF concentrates with existing 3 percent concentrates. 5. Revise MIL-F-24385C to include production specifications for 34 and 1 percent AFFF concentrations.
