The following terms and definitions and those defined in GB 7956.1-2014 are applicable to this document. For ease of use, some of the terms and definitions in GB 7956.1-2014 are repeated below.
3.1 Compressed air foam system fire fighting vehicle
It refers to the fire fighting vehicle mainly equipped with a water tank and a foam tank, and injecting foam for fire protection through the compressed air foam system.
[Definition in Section 3.1.8 of GB 7956.1-2014]
3.2 Compressed air foam system; CAFS
It refers to the device that is mainly composed of a fire pump, a compressed air system, a foam proportioning system, an injection device, a piping system, etc., and that is able to generate compressed air foam.
3.3 Foam proportioning system
It refers to the system that is composed of a foam proportioner, a foam pump, a control device, a piping device and other components, and that is able to mix water and foam concentrate in a certain proportion.
3.4 Class A foam
It refers to the foam mainly used for fighting Class A fires.
3.5 Dry foam
It refers to the Class A foam with a foam expansion ratio of not less than 10 times and a mixing ratio of not more than 1%, which is able to be stably attached to a vertical wall within a specified period of time.
3.6 Wet foam
It refers to the Class A foam with a foam expansion ratio of less than 10 times, a mixing ratio of not less than 0.2% and better flowability.
3.7 Nozzle for Class A foam
It refers to the fire-fighting nozzle with a nozzle diameter of not less than 19mm, which is used for injecting Class A dry and wet foam.
injection of dry and wet foam, and shall ensure that at least two nozzles for Class A foam are used at the same time.
126.96.36.199.2 When the compressed air foam system injects wet foam at the rated outlet pressure, the flow rate of the mixture injected by a fire monitor shall not be less than 8L/s, and the flow rate of the mixture at each injection outlet, except for the fire monitor, shall not be less than 3L/s. When the compressed air foam system injects dry foam at the rated outlet pressure, the flow rate of the mixture at each injection outlet, except for the fire monitor, shall not be less than 1.5L/s. 188.8.131.52.3 The compressed air foam system shall not switch between dry state and wet state and regulate the system?€?s outlet pressure by regulating the valve opening at the distal end of the outlet.
184.108.40.206.4 The compressed air foam system shall be possessed of automatic pressure balance function that is able to automatically control the difference between the outlet pressure of the compressed air system and the pressure of the fire pump within the range of 15% over the entire operating range.
220.127.116.11.5 The compressed air foam system shall be provided with a device for releasing the residual pressure after the system has ceased to run. This device shall be located in a convenient position for operation.
18.104.22.168.6 The compressed air foam system shall be possessed of cleaning function that is able to automatically clean the foam proportioning system and the pipelines, and shall prevent the residual fluid in the pipelines being cleaned from flowing into the foam tank or water tank in the cleaning process. The cleaning operation switch shall be located on the control panel.
22.214.171.124.7 The compressed air foam system shall have no leakage when
operating at the maximum allowable operating pressure and flow conditions. 126.96.36.199.8 The pipelines of the compressed air foam system shall be provided with means for preventing water, compressed air and foam backflow.

The operating pressure of the safety valve shall be 1.1 to 1.15 times the rated outlet pressure of the compressed air system. The safety valve shall be able to reset automatically after the pressure has returned to normal. The oil storage tank for the air compressor of the
compressed air system shall be conducted with the bursting test. The burst pressure shall not be less than 3.5 times the maximum outlet pressure of the air compressor. Rupture shall not produce debris. The burst shall not occur on the heads, longitudinal welds and their fusion lines, and circumferential welds (except for the burst perpendicular to the circumferential welds).
126.96.36.199 The compressed air system shall be conducted with the reliability test. During the test, the system shall function properly, and the air compressor shall not give an overheating alarm.
188.8.131.52 When the compressed air system is equipped with a heat exchanger, the heat exchanger shall be installed in such a position as to ensure that it does not cause burns to the normal operator, otherwise a heat insulation device shall be installed.
