UHP: THE FACTS

OPTIMIZED DROPLET SIZE

The Laws of Thermodynamics state that only the outer shell of a water droplet can be utilized to absorb heat. This correlates to only 10-20% of a conventional water droplet being used and the remaining water being wasted. Bump up the pressure to 1200 psi, and the water droplet becomes 1/64 the size of conventional water droplets. Optimized water droplets. Optimized heat absorption.

INCREASED SURFACE AREA

Ultra high pressure fire suppression systems break down the water droplet into 64 smaller droplets. This creates 10x the surface area. More surface area. Bigger impact with the fire.

LESS WATER USAGE

Fire usually affects only a small portion of the structure. Water and smoke are responsible for the greatest amount of damage. UHP fire suppression utilizes at least a fifth of the water, leaving significantly less damage.

FASTER TEMPERATURE DECREASE

Testing has shown that using ultra high pressure fire suppression and proper attack patterns, upper-layer room temperatures can be decreased by more than 1,000 °F in seconds, faster than any conventional system.

RAPID FIRE ATTACK

Fires today are burning 8x faster than they did 20 years ago making a rapid fire attack more important than ever before. Our mobile units allow you to get water to the fire faster, protecting both life and property in a more time efficient manner.

IMPROVED SAFETY

Our 3/4” hydraulic hand lines make pushing yourself to the limit a thing of the past. Using our smaller handline will enable you to get to the fire quicker and apply the water quicker, improving the safety of the occupants and your fellow firefighters.
