Extended throw range with high flow rates is increasingly important to industrial firefighters to maintain a critical application rate of the new aqueous film-forming foams, AFFF. AFFF works by quickly by spreading out over the surface of the fuel, depriving the fire of oxygen, quickly extinguishing petrochemical fires. The new non-fluorinated AFFF firefighting concentrates require much higher application rates than the older fluorinated concentrates that are now being restricted by the EPA due to environment and health concerns. With the AQUIS™ ULTRAFLOW Industrial Foam System Waterous is on the cutting edge with the best industrial fire suppression technology available to quickly extinguish even the largest fires.
Waterous AQUIS™ ULTRAFLOW Industrial Foam System consists of a Waterous CRUQC-2 pump with 10” suction intakes, flowing over 4000 GPM (15000 l/min) from draft and over 6000 GPM (22,700 l/min) with a pressurized intake, all while simultaneously injecting up to 300 GPM (1135 l/min) of foam concentrate in any of up to 16 discharges under direct operator control via the Waterous AQUIS™ ULTRAFLOW Tellurus touchscreen panel. With a one-hundred foot ladder fully extended, an aerial can throw concentrate/water solution over 400 feet (122 meters) from the apparatus.
