11/16/19 Firovac participated in the testing of various strainers conducted in Lockington by the Water Supply Technical Advising Committee of the Ohio Fire Chief's Association.
Lockington's 2000 gpm pumper was used to test all the various strainers. One section of 6" hose and no jet syphons were used. All equipment (hoses, tips, gauges), conditions and standards were used for the testing. Water was discharged through a 2.5" tip.
The Firovac HV-LL (High Volume - Low Level) strainer flowed 2300 gpm. Further information will be provided when available.
Charter Township of Springfield, Michigan lowered their ISO rating recently due in part to their recent purchase of two 3000 gallon Firovac demonstrator vacuum tankers. 40% of the ISO rating is based on the ability to supply water for fire suppression. Because of Firovac's versatility and speed, many fire departments reduced their ISO ratings.
