Fire trucks are heavy, slow and very expensive, but they can carry a lot of water and fire fighting equipment in turn requiring to be assembled manually. All this causes considerable time losses while the fire s flashing up. To solve this problem, AQUADRAULIC (1) has miniaturized the required fire fighting systems and (2) put them together to form one only joint and immediately workable system with (3) just one jetting head (4) allowing to produce the various jets and jet shapes without requires any assemblage, and (5) has put this new kind of equipment into passenger based vehicles as there are caravans, SUVs, off-roaders, vans, ATVs and UTVs, pick-ups etc., (6) and has taken the vehicle engine to become the main drive to allow doubling the fire fighting power. This is giving the opportunity to form a safety squad aside the fire fighting squad, this again giving permission to enter housing and dangerous areas.In summory, the vehicles allow to arrive at the place of fire rather early, the new equipment ensures to start immediate fire fight without prior time losses, the doubled power will produce rather high fire fighting impact and the possibility of forming a simultaneous safety squad aside the fire fighting squad, and the all-in-one jetting head enables the staff to optimize the fire fighting methods, thus producing best possible fire extinction results aside a minimum of required water volumes, thereby considerable reducing or even eliminating water damages.In the end this means quickest possible arrival and immediate start-up aside best possible and safe effects with a minimum of water consumption and water damages - if any. The vehicles can be built up in Swap Body version, i.e. an easily exchangeable sledge offering the desired special function is slipped into the car rear. In simplest version the function of a portable fire pump is offered to avoid heaving around the heavy weights of traditional systems.
Portable fire pumps, high pressure fogging units, powerful generators, foam producing units etc. have a weight clearly in excess of 100 kg, so when carried by 4 ...
To operate various fire fighting systems (pressure ranges of e.g. 40, 80, 160 and 320 bar= 600, 1100, 2300 or 4500 psi) it sofar was necessary to operate different ...
Command cars normally are the first ones to arrive at the place of fire, but instead of having adequate fire fighting equipment aboard, they just have hand-held ...
Companies dealing with inflammable material can insure themselves against fire and resulting damage, not however against loosing clients or even the total business. ...
