Roughly estimating the size of the building at 100 by 80 feet, a foam flow of approximately 800 gpm was estimated (100 x 80 = 8,000 square feet x 0.1 gpm per square foot = 800 gpm). This flow was estimated for a maximum 45-minute period for a total of 36,000 gallons of finished foam product (800 gpm x 45 minutes). Based on this figure, a total of 1,080 gallons of foam concentrate would be needed - 36,000 x 0.03 (3% mixture for hydrocarbon-based fluids) = 1,080 gallons.
