A variety of pumps can be supplied to meet the customer's requirements and preferences. The pump is mounted as low as possible to provide a flooded suction to assure self-priming. This clears the bed for other usages.

Foam System

Class A foam injection systems can be provided upon request. The foam concentrate is injected into the main flow path so that all outlets can be used with foam. The foam tank is incorporated into the main water tank so that a separate tank is not taking up valuable space. When a foam unit is installed, the tank fill and pump overheat returns are connected before the injection system so that the foam will not be returned to the tank.

Bumper Spray

Bumper spray nozzles provide a blanketing water spray to control grass fires on either side of the apparatus. The nozzles are individually controlled electronically from both inside the cab and at the pump panel. The bumper spray nozzles provide an excellent knockdown while the firefighter can provide mop up from the crosswalk. The spray from the nozzles also provides a cooling feature that helps keep the driver, firefighter and the apparatus cooler. Different capacity nozzles can be provided depending on individual requirements.

 

Remote Control Monitor

Remote controlled monitors can be mounted on the front of the apparatus. They can either be controlled from a joystick inside the cab or with a radio frequency control unit that can be used remotely from the truck. An electric ball valve is used to turn the water supply on and off.
