What you need to know is; what is the flow in GPM and how is the foam being introduced to the water. Are you batch mixing (filling a storage tank with water and adding the foam in the percentage called for) or using a eductor to pump the foam mix from a container and into the water stream. All fire foam is, as a rule, mixed at a recommended percentage, which is on the container.

Hope this helps.
