Ultra High Pressure
Fire Suppression Systems
E.J. Metals is the leading developer and manufacture of highly effective, ultra high pressure firefighting systems in the U.S. In fact, they’re pioneering the technology. We were the first to develop a hydraulically driven ultra high pressure fire fighting system that doesn’t require a gas-engine for power, and also provides a hydraulic tool circuit so you can power cutting tools or a chain saw. And, we are the only one to offer the patented Triplex™ triple-discharge nozzle specifically designed for ultra high pressure firefighting.
Ultra high pressure firefighting technology has been around for decades. In the late 1990s, scientists at Tyndal Air Force Base, Fla., advanced development of this technology to help build smaller, leaner fire trucks.
Today, E.J. Metals’ ultra high pressure firefighting technology offers a number of performance advantages:
- Incredibly effective — 15 minutes of firefighting time with just 70 gallons of water
- Uses up to two thirds less water and foam than traditional systems, thanks to the atomization of water that occurs at such ultra high pressures
- Light and compact — ideal for rough terrain vehicles, pickup trucks and full-size fire apparatus
- Minimizes water damage while delivering big knock-down capabilities
Applications: wildland / brush fires, first attack, interior fires, vehicles fires, laying break lines, liquid fires, structural fire.
