Earlier work [1, 2, 3] has shown that aqueous foams can be used successfully to suppress vapors and/or fumes and mitigate reactivity of many hazardous materials. Chubb National Foam, in concert with numerous major chemical manufacturers and users, is committed to a continuing hazardous materials control program which provides experimental data from actual field tests.
Studies of this nature produce valuable information on techniques used to apply special foams, types of equipment required and the courses of action to avoid in a hazardous material incident.
The tests covered in this report were conducted at the Department of Energy Nevada Test Site, Mercury, NV.
