    Default Gimaex One Seven CAFS and Foam Concentrate

    OK. I would love to hear about this system and/or the One Seven class A and B(AR) concentrates.

    Apparently Phoenix FD (thanks to Paul Grimwood for writing about this on his website) is researching the system.

    Any international firefighters feel free to chime in about the system. Does anyone know of any US depts. using it?

    Gimaex says the concentrates are best used with the One Seven system, but does anyone know if they can be proportioned at the stated rates through a FoamPro system? The class B(AR) foam is proportioned at .6%......yes I said POINT 6 %!

    Im all ears. It appears that the system is in use in several countries.

    No surprise no one knows about this. I cant even get Gimaex to email me back! It really looks like a promising technology but if they dont write or call people back they might as well close their doors.

    ANYONE at all?

    Well As far as I understood, they use a Foam Pro Proportionner. 1600 2001 or 2002 i don't really remeber.

    I saw that on one of their truck in Denver (IAFC).
