SPECIFICATION

The Bladder Tank Foam Proportioning System are available with vertical and horizontal bladder tanks. The carbon steel tanks are designed and constructed in accordance with ASME Code Section VIII for unfired pressure vessels. The maximum working pressure is 12 Bar (175 psi) and factory tested for 18 Bar (261 psi). The vertical tank assembly is supported by a continuous skirt with provision for anchoring. The horizontal tanks are supported by two saddles welded to the tank and drilled for anchoring. Tank is provided with lifting lugs.

The system is supplied with pressure vessel, bladder, fill and drain valve for water and foam concentrate, ratio controller and vent valve. The ladder and sight glass assembly is supplied as optional item on request.

enters the area between vessel wall and bladder, applying pressure to the bladder. The foam

enters the area between vessel wall and bladder, applying pressure to the bladder. The foam concentrate is forced out of the bladder through the foam outlet pipe and into the ratio controller through metering orifice. The concentrate pressure and water inlet pressure at ratio controller will be same, as the main water supply pressure is utilised to expel the foam from the bladder. The water flowing through the ratio controller jet creates a low pressure area common both to down stream water and foam concentrate. This injects the concentrate in to the ratio controller through an accurate sized orifice proportioned to water venturi. This ensures correct proportioning over a wide range of flow condition.

The bladder tank proportioning system operates on same principle as that of a balance pressure proportioning system. In bladder system, the bladder is used as diaphragm to separate the water and foam concentrate within the tank. The foam concentrate is injected into the ratio controller utilising water pressure.

The system is also supplied with foam concentrate control valve as an optional item. The valve allows concentrate flow only when minimum of 3.0 kg/sq.cm. water pressure is established in the system. For pressure drop and flow characteristics refer catalogue of ratio controller.

INSTALLATION, INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

An installation, inspection and maintenance manual is provided with each unit. The manual provides detail schematic, initial procedure, inspection and maintenance procedures. The instruction manual must be read carefully and followed during installation and commissioning of the system.

After few initial successful tests an authorised person must be trained to perform inspection and testing of the system. It is recommended to carry out physical inspection of the system regularly, the inspection should verify that no damages have taken place to any component and all the valves are in their proper position as per the system requirement. The system should be fully tested at least once in a year and in accordance with applicable NFPA/TAC code or in accordance to the guidelines of the organisation having local jurisdiction.

Do not turn off the system or any valve to repair or test the system, without placing a roving Fire Patrol in the area covered by the system. The patrol should continue until the system is put back in service. Also inform the local security personnel and the control room so that a false alarm is not signalled.

CAUTION

1. Do not weld on the tank as it may damage the bladder.

2. Release pressure before an inspection and

maintenance of the system.

3. Sight glass is not pressure tight, so before taking concentrate level reading, tank pressure must be released.

4. The bladder tank is to be installed under a shade to avoid direct sunlight on the equipment.

NOTE

1. The foam concentrate is to be filled in the bladder very carefully to avoid rupture of the bladder. The filling guideline provided with the equipment must be adhered to strictly.

2. Air supply with regulator (0 to 1.0 kg/sqcm) required during filling procedure, to be provided by user/ installer

3.Water supply at 0-1.5 kg/sqcm required for tank filling during commissioning , to be provided by installer/user.

SKID MOUNTED BALANCE PRESSURE FOAM PROPORTIONING SYSTEM

SKID MOUNTED BALANCE PRESSURE FOAM PROPORTIONING SYSTEM APPLICATION Balance Pressure pump skid-proportioning system
SKID MOUNTED BALANCE PRESSURE FOAM PROPORTIONING SYSTEM APPLICATION Balance Pressure pump skid-proportioning system

APPLICATION

Balance Pressure pump skid-proportioning system accurately controls the flow of foam concentrate in to the water stream. The system automatically controls the foam concentrate over a wide range of flow and pressure, without manual adjustment.

The system is typically used in the fixed foam system and specialised mobile equipments to protect tank farm, offshore platform, air craft hanger, marine dock, loading rack and in many other applications and in all types of hazard.

SPECIFICATION

The system utilizes the principle of operation based on the use of a modified venturi device called "Ratio Controller". As the water flows through a nozzle at the inlet of ratio controller, a low-pressure area is created between the inlet nozzle and a down stream section called diffuser. This low-pressure area causes foam concentrate to flow through a metering orifice at the concentrate inlet and into the low-pressure area. As the system demand varies, the flow through the ratio controller increase or decreases, which in turn varies the pressure at low pressure area of ratio controller, creating a corresponding pressure drop across the foam concentrate metering orifice. This corresponding change of pressure results in a foam concentrate flow, which is proportional to the water flow through the ratio controller.

The pressure sensing line from the ratio controller inlet for water pressure, and from the concentrate supply side above the metering orifice are connected to a bypass valve. This valve automatically adjusts the concentrate pressure corresponding to the water pressure by re-circulating the concentrate in return line to the concentrate storage tank. Manually the pressure can also be balanced by using manual regulating globe valve to read equal pressure of the water gauge and the foam concentrate gauge (or through a duplex gauge).

The system is available as a skid mounted unit, in different flow range, varying from 150 to 18000 LPM. Each skid consist of a positive displacement pump, a pump drive, an electric control, a bypass valve, a manual regulating valve, a ratio controlle r, interconnecting piping in stainless steel with various controlling valves, check valve, flush-in and flush-out valve. The system is also available for operation in auto mode.

INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

A qualified and trained person must commission the system. After few initial successful tests, an authorised person must be trained to perform the inspection and testing of the system. It is recommended to carry out physical inspection of the

It is recommended to carry out physical inspection of the system at least once in a

system at least once in a week. The inspector should verify that all the valves are in their proper position as per the system requirement and there is no damage to any component.

Do not turn off the system or any valve to repair or test the system, without placing a roving Fire Patrol in the area covered by the system. The patrol should continue until the system is back in service. Also inform the local security guards and control alarm station, so that a false alarm will not be signalled. The system must be periodically checked for its normal operating condition. All the valves must be verified for its normal operating condition. The electrical controls must also be verified.

The system must be operated periodically to verify its normal operating condition as per the instruction for testing provided with the equipment.

The entire system must be fully tested at least once in a year in accordance with the applicable NFPA codes, or in accordance to the guidelines of the organisation having local jurisdiction.

It is recommended to carry out physical inspection of the system at least once in a week. The inspection should verify that all the valves are in their proper position as per the system requirement and no damage has

taken place to any component. The system where foam concentrate piping is maintained in charged condition, the provision should be made to flow foam through each Inline Balance Proportioner at least once in six weeks. The system should be fully tested at least once in a year or in accordance with applicable NFPA codes, or in accordance to the guidelines of the organization having local jurisdiction.

INFORMATION

Please specify :

a) Model

b) Minimum and Maximum Pressure and flow rate

The Ratio Controller works on venturi principle. As the

water flow passes through a nozzle at the inlet of a ratio controller, a low-pressure area is created between inlet nozzle and the down stream section called diffuser. This low-pressure area causes the foam concentrate to flow through a metering orifice at the concentrate inlet and into the low-pressure area. As the system demand varies, the water jet through the Ratio Controller increase or decreases, which in turn varies the pressure at the low-pressure area of the Ratio Controller. This affect the corresponding pressure across the foam concentrate-metering orifice. The system requires same pressure of water and concentrate to balance the proportioning system. The diaphragm valve maintains equal pressure of the water and the foam concentrate.

APPLICATION

Inline Foam Inductor is used to induct the foam liquid concentrate in water stream to supply proportioned solution of the liquid concentrate and water, to the foam producing equipment. The inductors are designed primarily for use in the fixed foam Installation to provide a simple and reliable method of proportioning in constant flow applications. Each Inductor is designed for a predetermined water pressure to give the correct proportioning at that pressure and the discharge rate. The increase or decrease of the inlet pressure will result in an increase or decrease in the flow rate, which in turn will change the proportioning.

SPECIFICATION

'Inductors are available in three different materials of construction, a wide range of flow from 75 to 3500 litres per minute at the inlet pressure between 6.4 to 12 bar as shown in the graph.

Each Inductor is accurately calibrated at the factory to match the flow, pressure and the induction requirement of the system. This enables to ensure and achieve the correct performance.

This enables to ensure and achieve the correct performance. SYSTEM DESIGN DETAILS The Inductor must be

SYSTEM DESIGN DETAILS

The Inductor must be selected and installed in a

hydraulically calculated system considering the

limitation of permissible back pressure. The maximum

back pressure allowed is expressed as 65% of pressure

at the inlet of the inductor.

In the fixed foam system installation the inductor can be mounted above the concentrate storage tank. The maximum height of the Inductor suction pipe above the bottom of the storage tank to the inductor centre should not exceed 1.75 meters. A minimum of 600

mm of unobstructed straight pipe line should be

provided at the inlet and outlet of the inductor. The inductor must be installed in a system having minimum of 6.4 bar inlet pressure at inlet of inductor.

The diameter of water supply pipe and water foam

solution pipe should not be less than that of the diameter of the inductor. A shut-off valve provided in the induction line must be full bore on-off valve.

The non-return valve if fitted in the foam induction pipe

line, then it must be supplied or recommended by HD,

so that the induction rate is properly calibrated in factory before supply. For the best performance the

inlet pressure at the inline inductor should be 6.8 bar

or higher.

APPLICATION

The foam concentrate bypass valve is used in the balance pressure foam proportioning pump skid system. The valve bypasses the controlled excess quantity of foam concentrate to concentrate storage tank.

SPECIFICATION

The valve is diaphragm operated and works on the simple differential pressure principle. The pressure sensing lines, one from ratio controller inlet for water pressure and another from the concentrate supply pressure above the metering orifice are connected to bypass valve. The bypass valve automatically adjusts the concentrate pressure corresponding to the water pressure. The bypass is provided with flush out valves. The pressure sensing hose is Teflon with stainless steel braided cover and it is permanently attached with swivel coupling. The two separate pressure gauges, one for the water and one for the foam concentrate are provided with valve trims. A duplex gauge is supplied as an optional item in lieu of two pressure gauges. Each valve is factory tested for its performance.

INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

A qualified and trained person must commission the system. After few initial successful tests an authorized person must be trained to perform inspection and testing of the system. Do not turn off the system or any valve to make repairs or test the system, without placing a roving Fire Patrol in the area protected by the system. The patrol should continue until the system

by the system. The patrol should continue until the system is back in service. Also inform

is back in service. Also inform the local security guards and control alarm station, so as to avoid false alarm.

It is recommended to carry out physical inspection of the system at least once a week.
