Waste Water

AF3 Tank

AFFF Wastewater Holding Tanks

Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) solution is used extensively in fire suppression systems for aviation facilities and fire training facilities. AFFF systems are proven and essential to protect these valuable, mission essential aircraft and hangar facilities. AFFF systems have superior fire extinguishing capability and can effectively control flammable or combustible liquid fire resulting from aviation and shipboard accidents.

AFFF is not considered hazardous to humans and is technically considered biodegradable and practically nontoxic. The major concern is the large volume of solution that can be produced from hangar fire protection systems. Because AFFF is biodegradable, the breakdown of AFFF by bacteria consumes oxygen. Uncontrolled AFFF discharged to the environment could deprive aquatic life of oxygen and cause fish kills. If allowed to enter the sewage treatment facilities in relatively large volumes, AFFF foam can disrupt the treatment process by killing necessary bacterial cultures within wastewater treatment facilities (WWTFs). Many WWTF’s prohibit the discharge of AFFF laden wastewater unless the AFFF concentration is less than 50 ppm.

The AF3Tank is available in various standard sizes and can be manifolded to provide limitless capacity. The AF3Tank is a constructed of corrosion resistant materials to provide years of service.
