Steven Scandaliato, SET, SDG, LLC

Room: America AB

CEU 0.2 | CPD 2.0 | CH 2.0

Install/Design Track

There have been significant issues with the use of AFFF over the past few years including a ban on fluorine foams. As a result, several new products and technologies have entered the market and with them, new rules, design methods, and system costs. This seminar introduces Fire Fighting Foam in traditional and special hazards fire protection. Specific emphasis is presented on advantages and disadvantages for each giving the contractor and engineer a clear understanding of what best fits the hazards and project restraints they are dealing with.

Upon the conclusion of this seminar, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify special hazards and systems available to protect them
  • Recognize the difference in foam product types available and how to apply them
  • Describe the new system of technology available and where it is applicable
