TM 10-4210-235-13 Section III.  PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION 1-8  FIRE SUPPRESSION EQUIPMENT SET a. The  Fire  Suppression  Equipment  Set  is  a  self-contained  unit  used  to  extinguish  fuel  fires  and  seal  against  re- ignition.  It is to be kept m a ready status at all times when not in use.  It must be ready to use quickly with a minimum amount of time or effort. b. Two storage tanks hold the fire-fighting agents, one for the dry chemical and one for the AFFF.  When used, the storage  tanks  are  pressurized  independently  from  nitrogen  cylinders  using  quick-opening  lever  valves.    The  cylinder pressure is reduced with pressure regulators and check valves prevent the fire-fighting agents from backing up into the regulators. c. Each  storage  tank  has  a  discharge  ball  valve  that  is  opened  to  quickly  allow  the  fire-fighting  agents  to  pass through the 150 foot long hoses stored on the hose reel. d. The fire hose nozzle assembly controls the flow of fire-fighting agents from the hose line.  The operator squeezes a trigger lever to discharge either agent independently onto the fire. e. A heater is used around the AFFF storage tank to heat it if the tank temperature drops to 40°  F (4°  C).  This is to keep the liquid agent m a fluid state. 1-.9.  AUXILIARY CART. The  auxiliary  cart  carries  additional  hose  line  (150  feet)  (46  meters)  that  can  be  attached  to  increase  the coverage area. 1-7
