Storage tank fires and explosions claim hundreds of deaths and cost billions of dollars every year. It is almost impossible to control an explosion or a fire inside a tank farm.
When a tank explodes or burns, the fire rages at a dramatic temperature of over 750 degrees. Almost all automatic fire extinguishing systems would melt and be deemed ineffective.
As a result the fires would be allowed to totally burn causing numerous catastrophic deaths and destruction.
THE AXS SOLUTION
We injected AXS Rolls with a special polyurethane foam that allows them to float on the fuel surface; While regular AXS Rolls are placed in a safety ring surrounding the tank.
The AXS Rolls act as a blanket covering the fuel and depriving the fire from oxygen. Fire temperature was reduced from 750 degrees to 350 degrees allowing the automatic
passive fire extinguishing system to work properly.
