The Hurricane Series pumping system operates much in the same way as a firetruck pump. The pump is driven by an industrial power unit and either mounted within a skid enclosure or on a trailer. The pump can either be an end-suction (for flows 4000 GPM and below) or a horizontal split case (HSC) (for flows above 3000 GPM). Suction lines are manually attached to the suction manifold and then deployed into an open water source such as a pond, lake, bay, etc. The unit then primes (removes air) using air eductor vacuum pumps, which are able to pull water through the highest point on the system (the top of the pump casing). Once the unit is primed, the pump can be started, providing high-volume high-pressure water to the discharge manifold. The Hurricane can operate as either a single pump unit located at the draft source or in a series as a relay pump. The unit is equipped with passive safety features such as engine monitoring and prevention of over-pressurization of the discharge hose. The Hurricane also features an FRC control panel that allows both RPM control or discharge pressure control, allowing the user flexibility during operation.
