The Burning Issues
Firefighters face threats to their health and communities every day
The world is getting warmer and dryer
Look no farther than California and you can see what the future holds. We need to be able to fight fire in remote locations with less water and resources.
Fires are growing in intensity 8 times faster
The new building materials being used burn much faster. Speed is even more critical. Our equipment and teams have to be nimbler to get there faster
More firefighters are dying from cancer
Superheated carcinogens released by fires kill firefighters at a rate of 50% more than the general public. We need to reduce exposure to these deadly elements.
Municipal budgets continue to dry up
With new fire engines costing upward of $750,000, we’ll need new solutions that do the job at a fraction of the cost, manpower and maintenance requirements.
IT'S AN ULTRA-HIGH PRESSURE JOB
When it comes to water, Low Pressure droplets are simply too large. 85-90% goes right through the fire and end up as run off. Hydro-chemists have shown that only the outside layer of each water droplet fights a fire.
- UHP is a powerful 1400 psi. Low pressure is a feeble 150 psi.
- UHP breaks each drop into 64 droplets
- This produces 12-16 times the surface area
- This multiplies the fire extinguishing power
YOU CAN STOP BURNING THROUGH BUDGETS
Pyro UHP equipment is indisputably the most efficient way to put out most fires. It’s also the most cost efficient. Even so, compared to traditional systems, our systems have a tiny footprint. Most can fit on the bed of a pick-up truck. We are not implying that the pumper engine is obsolete. Yet.
- Most can fit on the bed of a pick-up truck
- Hundreds of thousands less than a fire truck
- Requires less manpower and training
- Requires less maintenance
