The invention relates to the mining industry and can be used when extinguishing fires in hard to reach areas of the mines.

Known foam generating apparatus for extinguishing fire for debris, comprising a cylindrical casing, a spray, foam generating net, folding spray chamber and components of the mixture inlet pipe (ed. mon. USSR N 702181, CL E21 F 5/02, 1977).

Yves, retractable inproved with supports and spray heads located inside the tube, and folding diffuser with spring elements (ed. mon. USSR N 680743, class. AND S/04).

A disadvantage of the known devices in low productivity generating foam for filling of large volumes of mining, which reduces the reliability of the rapid suppression or location of the fire.

The purpose of the invention increase the efficiency of extinguishing underground fires in hard to reach places mines by increasing the performance of the device for generating foam.

This is achieved by the device, comprising a housing in the form of a pipe with nozzles of mixture components, retractable piping with supports and spray heads located inside the casing, folding diffuser with spring elements and the foam generating net, retractable front support pipe made integral with the transfer manifold components of the liquid phase (solution of the foaming agent, phlegmatizers or extinguishing agent) attached at an angle to the longitudinal axis of the flexible pipes of different lengths, terminating in nozzles and connected to a common pull-out pipe, and actiona foam generating net. Additional redistribution of the gas stream in the mixing chamber is provided a foldable swirl gas flow, which is fixed to the axial port, located in the Central part of the mixing chamber.

The proposed set of distinctive features allows you to create a compact device that provides increased performance when generating foam several times due to a significant increase in the square foam generating mesh placement of nozzles in the mixing chamber, the redistribution of the gas flow, etc.

In Fig. 1 shows the deep shell, General view; Fig. 2 handout manifold (front bearing) with branch pipes and nozzles; Fig. 3 is a view in section of the air distributor; Fig. 4 deep projectile in the completion of excavation inert foam.

Foam generating the projectile contains a retractable pipe 1 pipe 2 and 3, the supports 4 and placed in the casing tube 5 wells drilled in the emergency area of excavation. The front bearing is made at the same time (contains) from the transfer manifold 6 is connected a flexible pipe 7, terminating in nozzles 8 with side add is, and on the Central pipe 7 is installed folding swirl 11. On the distributing manifold (front leg) fixed elastic closed foam generating net 12, forming the mixing chamber 13, the components of the mixture in the mode of generating foam.

Foam generating projectile (deep generator) works as follows.

In case of fire in the mine workings in the conditions of the possibility of explosion of methane for security work in isolation or suppression (localization) of the fire with a contiguous formation (generation) or with surface drilling a well with casing pipe 5, install retractable pipe 1 with the supports 4, pre-folded swirl 11 (which has a spring tape) and flexible pipes 7 by preload to the Central pipe. At the same time to the manifold 6 (front support) fixed foam generating elastic mesh 12 with its styling along with the pipes 7 in legarrea packaging (not shown). Then the pipeline Assembly is pushed through the casing pipe 5 to the exit in the emergency area of excavation (length is determined during the drilling of wells, at the outlet of the casing is limiting).

For disclosure progenerators gas (other fire extinguishing and phlegmatizers compositions), the nozzles 8 and the pipeline 1 is the liquid phase, and spritz the pipe 5 through valves 10 and 11 gas swirl flow. The liquid phase wets the transport packaging and torn by the pressure of the compressed gas, while relieving the folded flexible pipes 7 and swirl 11, which are disclosed in the operating position with the simultaneous disclosure of foam generating grid 12 with the formation of the chamber 13 of the mixing of the components of the mixture to obtain an inert foam. The resulting foam under pressure is pushed through the mesh 12 with obtaining more resistant fine patterns. Improving performance foam generating projectile due to the fact that the gas stream passing through the valve 10, in front of the camera 13 is redistributed flows in the direction of which hits the swirl 11 with additional redistribution and mixing with the liquid phase, which is distributed in the mixing chamber through the nozzle 9 of the nozzles 8.

Foam generating the shell allows you to perform the change taking fire by feeding on retractable piping other fire extinguishing means, for enhancing the production efficiency of rescue work.
