Classification of foaming agents, intended for extinguishing of fires of oil products, which is based on the structure of spreading coefficient of water foam-forming solution over hydrocarbon surface is presented. Results of experimental studies using various foaming agents with different structure of spreading coefficient are given. It is determined which of homologs of a number of sodium primary alkylsulfates differ in foaming capacity and fire extinguishing efficiency. It is revealed that decrease of interfacial tension value leads to reduction of extinguishing time of a heptane flame.
