A BETTER WAY TO FIGHT FIRES
Ultra high pressure is defined by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) as pump pressures above 1100 psi. By flowing water at these pressures, 10x the surface area is created by breaking down conventional water droplets into 64 smaller droplets allowing for at least a fifth of the water usage. Greater surface area means more contact with the fire and more efficient heat absorption. When the water droplet absorbs heat, it converts to steam, displacing oxygen, removing heat from the superheated environment and extinguishing the fire.
HMA Fire continues to be at the forefront of developing technologies and apparatus that make fighting fires safer and more efficient. Our current focus is on the introduction of suppression systems that integrate with every apparatus and every platform.
