600 Liter Tank with Pump Driven Unit
The Firexpress 600 litre tank with a pump driven unit is a self-contained system suitable for use in many locations. The unit has as standard a Honda GX 160 4.8 HP petrol engine, but can be fitted with either a Lombardini 15 LD 315 6.8 HP diesel engine or a 4.0 HP standard electrical engine (3 x 400 volt AC, 3KW). The engine drives a self priming membrane pump preset at 37 bars. It has an integrated 600 litre water tank and foam system with a 12 litre container for AFFF foam.
The system can have a secondary foam system installed to either increase the quantity of fire fighting foam or for carrying detergent/hazmat foam. Via a selector switch, it is possible to choose using foam from either foam containers or no foam at all. The foam percentage can be preset between 1 and 6% depending on the selected orifice.
From the pump the water is forced into a 50 metre hose, which is connected to the lance. The lance is operated via a pistol grip. The hose can be extended up to a length of 100 metres. It is able to deliver 24 litres of water per minute or 120 litres of aspirated foam per minute at a range of 15 metres. Baffle plates are installed inside the tank to increase stability during transport.
A suction system for suction of water from external water sources such as rivers, lakes, the sea or other water sources can be installed. The system can be used simultaneous with using the fire fighting system or to fill the water tank in approx. 16 minutes.
The tank unit can be placed on the platform of a pick-up or in a central location to cover a large area, e.g. inside a building. The tank unit can either be mounted with a full frame for airlifting or a bottom frame for enabling transport by a fork lift.
