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.

PYRO. MILITARY GRADE FIRE SUPPRESSION TECHNOLOGY

When we refer to the PyroLance and the PyroBlitz Ultra-High-Pressure systems as your most effective fire suppression weapons, we are not just being metaphorical. PyroUHP equipment was created and perfected to battle fires for the military.

Early applications were created for the Airforce, who needed more mobile fire equipment that could be deployed quickly and safely. Soon after, we were recruited by the Navy who saw the advantages of both the Blitz and the Lance for the most difficult fire suppression applications at sea. Now they’re deployed globally at American nuclear submarine base. All to say that PyroUHP systems have been tested and proven under the most extreme situations.

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

RE-CALIBRATING WATER POWER

Conventional low-pressure systems are water hogs. A typical system is pumping out hundreds of gallons per minute, flooding property and causing irreparable damage in the process. This situation is bad enough when water hook ups are plentiful. But when you go remote, and the tanker is running low, things can go from bad to worse quickly.

Pyro Ultra-High-Pressure fire suppression systems can extend the effectiveness of your water supply by 500%. It takes only 20 gallons per minute to equal the fire suppression of 120 gpms of a conventional system. This can be a critical in a rural or wildland era. But even in urban settings, less water means less residual damage. And rapid extinguishing time puts you in control faster.

YOU CAN STOP BURNING THROUGH BUDGETS

PyroUHP 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
