The latest Holmatro pump models feature new whisper mode for lower emissions and noise

Published:  15 December, 2014

Holmatro introduces a new function on three pump models in its Spider range. The new Eco whisper mode minimises noise and fuel consumption.

When operating a hydraulic rescue tool connected to one of these pumps, the engine speed automatically increases to maximum to ensure optimal equipment performance. After finishing operating, the engine reverts to Eco whisper mode, which keeps the pump running at a low idle speed. This not only reduces fuel consumption, but also extends operation time, while the noise level also goes down. A quieter pump causes less stress for victims and improves communication at the rescue scene. And because there’s no need to switch off the pump in between operations, it’s readily available for use again.

How it works
The Eco whisper mode works in combination with Core hoses up to a length of 15 m / 50 ft. With the equipment connected and the pump running, the operator simply presses the Eco button on the pump to activate and optimises this function for the right rescue set.
Pump models
The Holmatro Spider range petrol pumps are equipped with the new Eco whisper mode: SR 10 PC 1 E for single tool operation and SR 20 PC 2 E and SR 40 PC 2 E for simultaneous operation of two tools. Conversion sets to retrofit existing equivalent pumps with the Eco whisper mode are also available.
