After years of seeing firsthand how Forest fires devastate our communities and land, we decided there has to be a better way to deal with them! You can’t travel 5 Km without running into a large body of water throughout Canada, so why not utilize this standing water to fight the fires! We then spent the next 4 years developing a new type of water pump.
I can’t express how proud we are of our Pumps and their potential Worldwide!
Thanks to our Patented design, our pump always uses 100% of the available power at full engine RPM and adjusts itself to meet a particular flow or head constraint regardless of the suction or piping configuration; basically, we have one pump that changes to produce different pump curves based on what you want!
Our pump drive has the ability to apply up to 1313 lb. ft. of torque at the impeller, while weighing in at between 350 lbs and 600 lbs. depending on options. This allows us to move water great distances at higher pressures than most conventional pumps currently on the market. What this means is, our pumps can perform as well as pumps that weigh over 10,000 lbs and because they are so light and versatile, they can be transported anywhere! They can be designed to output between 2,000 (6″ pump) and 10,000 (10″ pump) Imperial gpm.
In these videos, we are demonstrating our pumps impressive power! There are very few pumps in the world that can push water higher than 500′. Most of them weigh in the 10’s of thousands of pounds…
At the WUI conference in Reno, Nevada, they did an article on our pumps! Check it out! http://www.fireapparatusmagazine.com/articles/2017/05/petrillo-wui-equipment.html
Here,we are showing how easy it is to fit one Trident and one Deployer onto
a 24′ tandem trailer!
Thanks to our patented design, we are able to swap out impellers in 20 minutes.
In this video, we are demonstrating our 1,500 gpm impeller. The pumps motor is set at 475 hp but in this test we are only utilizing 150 hp, so on our next test, we will be trying out the 3,000 gpm impeller.
At one point, we shut the pump off with the line loaded and do a restart to show how the pumps motor doesn’t get bogged down from the resistance of the loaded line. This as well is part of our patented design.
CTV did a story on our pumps:
