HFS for Government – multi-purpose mobile pump systems

Fire protection and fire fighting

Residents and businesses in heavily wooded areas and in urban environments with limited or difficult access to surface water sources want to be assured that their fire fighters have sufficient water supplies to operate effectively. When conflagrations strike the most critical need is usually an unlimited water supply, which Hytrans Fire System can provide. 

Flood risk protection

Residents and businesses in or near river basins or deltas need reassurance that their land and properties will be safe during flooding. When high water levels leave dikes, dams and seawalls at risk of failure, Hytrans Fire System provides the overflow equipment to relieve pressure from critical locations and to quickly remove water incursion from breaches.

 Pumping capacity for unlimited water supply and water drainage

Hytrans offers the best solution for pumping unlimited quantities of water under critical circumstances. Hytrans specializes in building powerful, multi-purpose mobile pump systems that can provide fast access to open water sources, such as rivers, lakes, channels, harbors and the open sea, even if they are kilometers away. Hytrans Fire System (HFS) pump systems have unique features that conventional pumping systems cannot compete with.

 

HFS gives fire brigades a better chance to fight fires and to quickly drain excessive water from flooded areas.

Why HFS mobile pump systems?

 

Access to open water in difficult circumstances is vital

Firefighters and other emergency responders need pumping systems that can be set up quickly with minimal manpower to support firefighting operations and to dewater flooded areas. No conventional suction pump system can compete with the pump capacity, mobility and flexibility of HFS pump systems.

 

When a Hytrans HydroSub is utilized any water source within approximately 60 meters, horizontally or vertically, of the power unit can be dewatered or utilized to support firefighting operations. Even at high pumping heights the HydroSub provides enough pressure to transport the water over long hose lays. In addition, HydroSubs and Autoboosts, in combination with large diameter hoses, can be used in series (relay pumping) allowing fire fighters to quickly supply water to fire trucks and monitors located several kilometers from the water source.

Hytrans’ wide range of pump systems and equipment

HFS offers several multi-purpose products that can be quickly set up to feed temporary water supply networks covering several kilometers (wildfires and urban conflagrations), dewater flooded areas or provide temporary water supplies to sustain industrial cooling and/or drinking water systems. These systems include:

  • One or more HydroSubs, which consist of one or more hydraulically-driven submersible floating pumps capable of operating at pump lifts up to 60 meters without capacity loss.
  • HFS utilizes the best hose available with minimum elongation (< 1,5%). This helps to prevent so called ‘snaking’ (sudden hose movement as they are pressurized). 
  • Manifolds, appliances and other fittings to divert water to several monitors or fire trucks. 
  • A built-in or standalone foam proportioning system (HFS PowerFoam) to attack full surface tank fires. 
  • HFS Hose Layer container(s) that allow high speed hose deployment up to 40 km/h. Containerized units allow flexibility and transportation by the same truck.
  • HFS Hose Recovery Units, powered by the truck’s hydraulics (no separate hydraulic power pack needed). HFS’ latest system (AutoFlaker) not only lifts and drains the hose, it also flakes it into the hose container allowing the hose to be flat packed with no one in the container.
