Because of the complex characteristics of oil liquid, oil tank fire is more complex, and we need to consider the performance of fire extinguishing agent and environmental factorin the process of fighting, so fire suppression of oil tank fire is hard. This page analyzed the combustion characteristic of oil tank fires and themechanism of foam loss. Based on the previous studies, this paper provides guide ides of oil tank fire by discussing the feasibility and applicability of suppressing oil tank fire by using compressed air foam system (CAFS) with different fire extinction agents and analyzing the effectiveness of different agents.
