Most Cost-Effective Fire Suppressant On The Market!
This web site has been established to provide readers
with useful information regarding Baum's Novacool line of fire extinguishing and cooling products. Emphasis has been placed on Baum's Novacool UEF, Novacool RTUFP. These are
the latest generation of the most technologically advanced fire fighting products on the market today.
Each potential user of Baum's Novacool products will
have their own particular product interest and requirements.
Very thorough information relating to fire fighting,
safety, and environmental concerns are contained in the pages of this website.
We offer a complete line of firefighting foams specifically designed to meet the most challenging fires, CAFS, nozzles, and eductors.
A principal attraction of the Novacool fire extinguishment products is their patented ability to quickly lower fire site temperature. Novacool products reduce the heat component of fire. Following extinguishment, both structures and fuel sources are cooled to the point where they pose no risk of reignition. With conventional products, however, there remain, even after extinguishment, hot surrounding surfaces and fuels just waiting for an oxygen supply to recombust.
The importance of a cooling effect in fire fighting is immeasurable. With Novacool UEF, fighting fires can get in closer to the seat of a fire in much shorter time frames than before. Rescue efforts are greatly enhanced. Structure failure and property damage are decreased, and the ability to minimize pollution is tremendously expanded. Conventional foam products do not cool beyond the normal effect of the water they contain.

Extensive scientific research has shown that low levels of materials from the perfluorooctanyl chemistry are widespread in the environment, including living organisms, and they persist for long periods of time. PFOS (perfluorooctanyl
sulfonate), together with PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid), has been used to make aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), a component of fire fighting foams, and alcohol type concentrate foams. Baum’s Castorine ceased production of AFFF’s until new technology is developed to address the environmental concerns.
