High Pressure Vortex Technology
Carrying up to 7.500 liters of water, the tank can extinguish fires for long periods of time thanks to its Vortex water cannon.
Carrying up to 7.500 liters of water, the tank can extinguish fires for long periods of time thanks to its Vortex water cannon. The onboards water, pressurised up to 200 bars undergoes extreme acceleration before being released into the Vortex tubes and rotating nozzles. The Vortex system allows the RED to project a fine mist of water droplets which chokes the fire while extinguishing it at distances up to 100m.
The water delivery range and spray shape can then me varied to allow the RED to adapt to any condition.
Overall the unique Vortex waterjet system delivers four key advantages over other firefighting water delivery systems:
Rapid fire extinguishing
Since the Vortex’s mist system allows simultaneous action on a fire’s oxygen supply, temperature, and burning material, it can extinguish fires faster than most other water delivery systems.
Very low water consumption
The fine mist delivered by the Vortex waterjet uses only a small fraction of the water used by other water delivery systems.
The water mist delivery system uses less water but also instantly covers a larger area than traditional lance systems.
Longer periods of firefighting.
The low consumption of water combined with its 7500-litre water tank allow for substantially longer extinguishing times in the range of hours.
