Mobile Fire fighting set 600 m3

We have delivered 2 mobile pumpsets this week to an overseas customer. These trailerized pumpsets can work up to 5 m above the water level without the use of a submersible pump. In order to do this, 3 non collapsible hoses are deployed. A n automatic vacuum priming system primes the pump within one minute after starting.

The pump is driven by a Caterpillar C-9 diesel engine. A monitor from FFS in Norway is capable of a throw length of 110 m.

This pump set is built into a full enclosed tandem axle trailer. Total weight of the unit is 3500 kgs.

This pump set is an ideal mobile solution if the Fire can be reached from the waterside. If this is not possible, the pump set can be equipped with a 8″ pressure connection to transport the water through flat hoses.

The system consists of a submersible pump unit, supplying water to a large booster pump.

The submersible pump unit is mobile unit that can be lowered into the water by an A frame mounted on the trailer. Alternatively, the submersible pump unit can be self propelled.

The submersible pump is connected to the booster unit by 8″flat hoses. This pump can feed a monitor trailer located at considerable distance.
