Sutphen Corporation’s new industrial pumper is third-party-rated at 6,000 gallons per minute from draft.
Industrial fire apparatus, both pumpers and aerials, are their own special category of fire apparatus, requiring massive pumping power, large foam application capabilities, and specialized monitors and nozzles for fires in refineries, tank farms, and chemical plants.
If your department is considering placing a foam concentrate delivery system on your next apparatus, there are several considerations before you design your apparatus.
Ferrara Fire Apparatus built this 100-foot rear-mount industrial aerial platform for Delaware City (DE) Refining Company on an Inferno XMFD chassis and cab, powered by a 600-hp Cummins ISX15 diesel engine and an Allison 4000 EVS automatic transmission.
