These Firefighting Hydraulic Pumps Can Move 11,899 Gallons of Water Per Minute
When you’re faced with a high-magnitude blaze, such as a wildfire or an industrial fire you need a powerful and heavy-duty water pump that can move 45,000 liters (or 11,899 gallons) of water per minute – super-fast and steady! Hytrans Fire System (HFS), developed by Armor Plus, is a cutting-edge and robust mobile system for water supply at a top level for fire brigades, civil defense, emergency services, and industries worldwide.
Hytrans offers an array of HFS mobile pumps with hydraulically-driven submersible pumps. These mighty pumps are equipped with up to 60 meters of hydraulic hoses that provide access to an open water source. Conventional pumps often cannot access open water on the ground due to steep slopes, soft or muddy terrain, as well as additional obstructions, including trees, rocks, protective rails, and fences.
By incorporating hydraulic power, it offers unparalleled pumping power, which lifts up to 60 meters vertically at full nominal pumping capacity. What makes HFS pump systems stand out from the rest is that they surpass the abilities of traditional remote suction pump systems.
More specifically, Hytrans’ Hydrosub is the best to use for massive blazes as it’s a beast of a water pump that’s designed for emergency water supply and can be deployed with ease and speed using a minimum of manpower. As mentioned, these life and landscape-saving units are equipped with hydraulic-driven portable submersible floating pumps, which are connected to a diesel-powered hydraulic power pack. This setup not only allows for quick deployment from the power pack, but it makes it possible to have a 60-meter vertical pump lift – without a draft problem or suction draft losses!
Not having to worry about any draft losses is a huge plus. Typically, standard fire draft pumps or fire trucks have to remain in close proximity to the water source in order to pump water. Their functionality is restricted by draft issues because they draw water using suction. That’s not an issue with HydroSub!
To add to its versatility of firefighting properties, the HydroSub unit can pump saltwater, chemically polluted water, mud, and dirt without a problem. Also, the submersible pump can operate in shallow water without risk of failure due to cavitation. You can also use the pump in conjunction with a mobile desalination plant and/or mobile water treatment plant.
