F-500 EA vs CAFS on Two 40 Tire Pile Fires
This amazing video shows a direct competition with two piles of 40 burning tires. The team on the left is using F-500 Encapsulator Agent for the first time. The team on the right was bragging about their new “state-of-the-art” Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS). The F-500 EA extinguished the fire in 13 seconds, before the CAFS motor started to engage. It is important to note, the foam tires re-ignited later that night, because foam blankets in the heat. As the bubbles dissipate, the fire returns.
