We have missed seeing all of you this year at the conferences and shows as they have been cancelled thus far in 2020. However, as an essential buisness, we have remained open for customers and are observing COVID 19 regulations. We are also expanding to continue to meet the demand and assist you in advancing your Department. Several months ago a footer for a 3 bay addition was dug.
Town of Owego is selling two of their used Firovac units which will be replaced with two new Firovac units. The flyer below includes pictures and details. If you or anyone you know would be interested in these units please contact us at 1-800-796-2588 or email@example.com.
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.
A Firovac unit initially delivered in 2000 is being replaced by a current model. The 2000 year model is being offered for sale and will be available in late 2019. Its features are as following:
Firovac Hawk QP apparatus
Hale-Godiva pump PSD 750 PTO driven (Muncie)
Electronic control panel
1- 2.5” discharge each side
1- 2.5” suction inlet driver side
2- 6” suction inlet each side
