Technology and AccessoriesDIN EN 16327DIN EN 16327 standardises positive-pressure proportioning systems and compressed-air foam systems (CAFS) and hence describes systems for enhancement of extinguishing efficiency integrated in fire trucks.

DIN EN 16327

Positive-pressure proportioning systems and compressed air foam systems admix the concentrate and, if so, compressed air for foam formation on the pressure side. Die foaming extends the effective surface of the extinguishing agent water and fixes it also on slopes of the burning substance.

DIN EN 16327 standardises:
  • Positive-pressure proportioning systems (DZA)
  • Compressed air foam systems (DLS)
