Medina Man Invents Foam Cannon 2000

Posted: Updated:
With all the crude oil train accidents lately, a North Dakota man decided to do something about it.

Darrell Graf, of Medina, invented the Foam Cannon 2000. The canon could be used for major derailment fires, tanker spills and pipeline ruptures. His invention holds 2,000 gallons of foam compared to just 50 gallons of foam on a regular fire truck.

"This is very affordable. The only thing that gets close to putting out a stream of foam like this is an airport crash vehicle and refineries have special trucks that cost a million dollars a piece. A million bucks will get you five of these," says Graf.

Graf also says the reach of the Foam Cannon 2000 is 200 feet more than a typical fire truck.
