Firefighting systems

Hydrauvision develops and builds large-scale fire extinguishing and large water transport systems. These systems are used in firefighting and flooding control and are characterized by large volume flows, mobility, a fast set-up speed and flexibility. We design our fire extinguishing and large water transport systems according to customer specifications but start with a solid foundation for an optimized system.

 

Mobile Water Pump Systems

Our mobile water pump systems are built with a capacity of 4,000 LPM to more than 50,000 LPM in a pump set, of which several are often combined to meet the total water requirements. In this way, we have a suitable pump for every situation.

Mobile Water Pump System Design

The basic characteristics of our mobile water pumps are the system’s design and the mobility. When using a pump set, you can easily combine multiple components. There are four scenarios for this:

  • Usually, water can be sourced from a fixed location - such as a well - which is never too far below the pump set. We build diesel driven pump sets that can work with water up to 5 meters deep. The centrifugal pump is primed by a vacuum system. This pump set is characterized by its simplicity and a short installation time. The disadvantage is that the water must be close to the pump set. 
  • If the water is further away and deeper than 5 meters, then a submersible pump is necessary. This submersible pump is hydraulically driven by a diesel power pack. This means that the submersible pump can operate up to 100m from the hydraulic power pack that drives it. 
  • Is the desired capacity large and the desired pressure high? Then it is often good to combine the submersible pump with a booster pump. This allows the advantages of a submersible pump (flexibility) and a booster pump (high power) to be combined. 
  • Due to the hose resistance, the pressure decreases over long distances during water transport. This can be increased again by including a so-called booster set.

Possibilities of Mobile Water Pump Systems

In order to deploy the pump sets quickly and efficiently, different versions are available. The pump sets can be designed as hooklifts or as trailers. The hook lift bucket can be transported quickly and over long distances and can be easily dropped off on location. Of course, the condition is the presence of a hooklift compatible vehicle. The version on a trailer is slightly less mobile, but can be more suitable in certain situations.

Collaboration with Large Fire Extinguishing Systems

For large systems where, in addition to pump sets, other system components play a role, we work together with partners. We usually work the most with DNM International and IFFS. DNM International is a specialist in industrial firefighting and has very extensive knowledge of extinguishing principles and strategy. As a specialist in foam injection systems, hose bins, monitor tractors and other peripherals, IFFS is indispensable and a good addition to our own expertise.
