High-powered pumps by Waterous are now suppressing urban and wildland fires in northern Africa with the delivery of 160 new PB18 Series portable pumps for firefighting vehicles sold to Civil Protection of Algeria.
The portable, gear-driven centrifugal pumps are powered by V-twin Briggs and Stratton 18-hp engines that deliver between 20 gpm at 320 psi and 75 gpm at 190 psi.
Produced by French manufacturer Camiva, 95 of the 160 vehicles will combat forest, rural and wildland fires. The others, manufactured by French manufacturer SIDES, will fight urban blazes.
