Hi Murray, nice photo, do you know how many litres of foam it carries?

Added by Mark Corfield on 03 June 2010.
mark, the palletised loads on this appliance each carries 1,000 litres. It carries 8,000 litres of low-ex foam and 1,000 or 2,000 litres of hi-ex foam as well as well as 2 equipment pallets which include foam generators, monitors and branches, etc.

2 of these appliances have been ordered, 1 for finchley and 1 for sutton (as i believe, could be wrong). The LFB are also exploring the idea of bulk dry powder units for incidents requiring bulk loads of dual media.

see the old foam unit in picture #867

hope this helps, dave

No I don't Mark, but I will find out for you next week when I am back at Southwark.

counting the Schultz containers guess 5 aside would make 10.000 litres as each container holds 1000lts.

This BFU is based at Harrow instead of Finchley
