This NORDTEST method is intended for providing a basis for testing of portable foam branches. This test method includes both general requirements as well as performance tests.

The test method is applicable for portable foam branches intended for generating both low and medium expansion foams.

The test method can be used as a separate test of any specific foam branch for eg some basic approval. Preferably it should be used to provide information about the complete foam extinguishing system that will be used by the fire brigades. This is possible by combining tests and test results from the following NORDTEST methods.

- NT FIRE 023, Fire extinguishing foam concentrates:


- NT FIRE 042, Foam concentrates, proportioner:
