The ACAF-PFS Fire Suppression Group designs, manufactures and distributes the automatic compressed air foam (ACAF®) systems for flammable liquid fire protection solutions.

ACAF automatic fire suppression systems are proven to efficiently subdue flammable liquid fires in commercial, hazardous and industrial environments. Our compressed air foam systems are typically used for the oil and gas, power, aviation, mining and petrochemical industries.

Designed to meet and exceed the most stringent industry standards, they are suitable for a wide range of applications, including chemical and fuel hazards, power generation and machinery pump areas, aircraft hangars and heliports, helipads, landing decks and oil storage floating roof tanks.

Firefighters, engineers, and building and vehicle owners / operators use ACAF® foam fire suppression systems to effectively suppress fires in industrial environments.

The ACAF® firefighting product line is available in, 30gal, 60gal, 120gal, 240gal and 500gal sizes. The company offers skid or wheeled configurations, as well as stainless-steel options for offshore applications.
The ACAF Rimseal System is a self-contained, fully automatic compressed air foam suppression system designed to extinguish floating roof tank rimseal fires.
CrossFire™ is a unique, environmentally-safe CAF system designed to suppress fires on off-road heavy equipment. The system uses foam with two compressed air foam (CAF) and compressed air foam mist (CAFM).
This picture demonstrates the strength of foam and its suppression ability: ‘A homogenous foam produced by the combination of water, foam concentrate and air or nitrogen under pressure.’ National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 11).
ACAF’s network enables worldwide distribution of its fire suppression systems.

All ACAF systems are engineered to meet and exceed the most stringent firefighting industry standards.

Our main product lines:

  • Wheeled or skid-mounted firefighting equipment
  • Self-contained and fixed water supply fire suppression systems
    • Self-contained (SC) automatic fixed pipe system: the configuration is recommended for areas where water is unavailable. This automatic, pre-engineered, stored energy-type, unique fire suppression system does not require a water supply to create CAF as the fire suppression agent
    • Automatic fixed water (FW) supply: a CAF solution may be designed using ACAF’s® fixed water supply system when water is easily available. This system needs a foam proportioner to combine foam concentrate and water to a pre-determined ratio of either 3% or 6%

About ACAF systems

ACAF Systems use environmentally safe, green compliant technology. They require 75% less water in comparison with traditional foam technologies, and have the industry’s only stationary CAF nozzle.

The company adheres to ISO 9001: 2008 quality standards and American Society of Mechanical Engineer (ASME) certifications for all pressure retaining components. Pressure equipment directive (PED), Indian Boiler Regulation (IBR), Russian’s state union standard (GOST) certifications are also available on request.

Our products, including ACAF Deluge and fixed water supply suppression systems, are approved and manufactured according to Factory Mutual Global’s specifications.

Systems are warrantied for one or five years (offshore models carry a five-year warranty). They are distributed through a worldwide network of authorized distributors.
