Rim Seal Foam Pourer
Model No. 6010
Operating Pressure 4 to 10 bar
Flow Rate 60 to 220 Lit/min
GPE Rim seal Foam Pourers are used for the protection of vertical open top floating roof (OTFR) storage tanks and comprises two elements – the Rim Seal Foam Generator (RFG) which produces expanded foam when supplied with foam solution and the Rim seal foam pourer (RFP) which delivers the foam gently into the rimseal area.
Available in two basic body sizes, with capacities ranging from 54 liters/minute at 4 bar to 220 liters/minute at 10 bar, each unit is factory-calibrated to deliver a specified flow at a given pressure upon customer design.
Features and Benefits:
The RFP is a low-profile unit which protects the foam from high winds and guides it gently on to the tank wall.
The front shield allows fully developed foam to emerge in a cohesive blanket that flows intact onto the inside wall of the tank.
The stainless steel mesh at the foam exit helps to prevent blockage from insects and nesting birds.
For new tanks, the new models can make the most cost-effective use of foam concentrate and water resources by producing the designed foam solution application rate. For retrofit onto existing tanks during refurbishment, The GPE RFG models can replace existing units without the need for expensive modification. Accurate GPE-calibration ensures full compatibility with existing foam concentrate induction systems.
To further simplify installation, a fixing kit is now supplied as an optional extra which facilitates installation to the tank whilst still in use and without the need for hot work.
GPE Rim Seal Foam Pourer is suitable for use with low expansion foam concentrates.
