- Operational control of fires on the ground can -
Statistics flight accidents shows that the most likely site of accidents and disasters are the airport and the surrounding area - more than 70% of tragedies happen there.
If the airport is not equipped with an effective means of fire, the consequences can be serious, and vice versa - the scrupulous management and airport services related to security equipment and people, the greater the likelihood of rescue and minimize damage.
Low efficiency of fire not only leads to the destruction by fire expensive equipment, including aircraft, but also in death. Statistics indicate that podobnyesituatsii occur in developed countries, and the reason for accidents - in the absence of both effective taktikiborby with fire, and effective means and ognetuschaschih materials (foam).
Fire bezopsnost around the world is regulated by the International Civil Aviation Organization, which contains the required quantity and quality of fire fighting. And their lack of non-compliance or may, for example, be cause for removal from the list of airports that are allowed to perform international flights.
In the 80-ies. the last century, the fashion for extinguishing dictated American company "3M", developed fluorinated blowing agent such as "light water". Indeed, the efficiency of its pripozharah met all the requirements, but the economic aspect - the price was unreasonably high foam - forced to look for alternative solutions.
Many years of research and experimental design work carried out personally by Gennady Kuprin (now the general director of "Sopot") in the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, as well as with representatives of several institutions of the defense industry (OCB im.Suhogo, TRANSMASH Research Institute, Academy of them. Zhukovsky, etc.), Rosaviation VNIIPO Russian Interior Ministry, VIPTSH Russian Interior Ministry, has produced results: for control and containment of large-scale fires in aerodroinyh venues and airports was invented by installing a combined fire fighting ICFF "Blizzard", the production of which is in the LLC RPA «SOPOT» .
The principle of know-how in the process of filing concluded combined jet foams with improved quenching properties at much greater distances than in previous models (for comparison, uvelichilast range from 20 to 100 meters), which reduced the time of the emergency fire and rescue operations at airports reduced the economic component of the fire, as a foaming agent s skipped the usual type, at a price much more affordable fluoridated, including the famous "light water" from America.
Studies Association "Sopot" in the direction of increasing the effectiveness of post-emergency fire fighting aircraft showed that both civilian and military aircraft crash tolerate within the airfield, you can put out in the range of 1-2 min, ie the time during which the critical values of the factors fire in the aircraft has not yet come. When using plants "Blizzard" that provide simultaneous delivery of the jets pen low and medium ratio is already in the process of extinction may conduct emergency repairs as low expansion foam is cooled fuselage and medium expansion foam form a protective layer under the airplane in the area of burning oil . This achieves the effect, in which the ambient air inside the cabin will not exceed the value of life-threatening crew and passengers. The same can be said about the fire and explosion hazards of structural elements of aircraft and its equipment. Experience shows that the use of ICFF "Blizzard" can extinguish fires up to 1000 sq ft area for a time not exceeding 60-90 seconds.
Unique facilities lies in the fact that they use eco-friendly and affordable Letter of foaming agents, and the quenching efficiency increases, and the cost of fire suppression is ten times less than when using standard means. Today settings "Blizzard" is equipped with a number of airfields of the Air Forces of Russia, and Pulkovo Airport, Ufa, Surgut, peace, Zhukovsky and many others.
