In 2006, PyroUHP brought a Swedish firefighting technology to the US and named our company Cobra North America. We immediately found opportunities for improvement of this technology and PyroLance was formed. PyroLance introduces its fine mist of water through a small opening less than 1/8 inches – 3mm. A rapid reduction in temperature occurs without introducing large amounts of oxygen, which greatly reduces the likelihood of flashover or backdraft. Firefighters can manage the thermal layer while remaining outside in a safe, shielded, defensive position. The piercing technology was our company’s sole focus until 2009 when the PyroBlitz UHP system was developed. This skid-based unit utilized the same Ultra High Pressure technology as the PyroLance without the piercing capability. The company continued to operate under the PyroLance name until 2018. Due to further developments in UHP technology, PyroLance decided to change its name to PyroUHP.
