Ultra high-pressure skid for pickup trucks

Published:  04 December, 2014

TECHNOLOGY: The new Firelite Transport FTUHP-400 series ultra high-pressure (UHP) skid unit from Kimtek features the FoamPro Turbo Stream high-energy firefighting system from the FRC Corporation.

Powered by a Honda 13HP gas motor with electric start, the skid unit delivers (8) GPM at 1400 psi. The patented foam concentration injector system enables a precise foam injection rate of between 0.3% and 3.0%, exceeding NFPA 1901 requirements. The FoamPro Turbo Stream Hypro Triplex Plunger Pump provides dependability and ultra-high pressure performance. Ideal for use with all Class A foam concentrates, the dual action spray gun delivers foam solution over 45 feet.

The Firelite FTUHP-400 series wildland firefighting skid's Foam Pro Turbo Stream UHP system includes a choice of a 125, 160 or 200 gallon poly water tank with integrated five gallon foam cell, Hannay 1500 series ultra-high pressure electric hose reel with 100 feet of ½” high-pressure rated hose with dual action spray gun, and a thermal relief valve to prevent overheating during extended idle. An optional second high-pressure reel is available.

The FTUHP's base and components are constructed from aluminum tubing and bright aluminum diamond plate, and feature all-stainless steel plumbing and brass valves. The unit is specially designed to fit in most short or long box pickup truck beds and flat beds.
