Rapid response foam trailer

26 May 2009

Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Products has unveiled the Skum brand Raft – which stands for Rapid Response Foam Trailer. Designed for fast, accurate and safe deployment in high-hazard environments, the Raft firefighting trailers are highly mobile, versatile and cost-effective.

They are available as a single-axle 1,000-litre tank capacity unit, and as twin-axle 1,800-litre and 2,300-litre capacity trailers.

They can be fitted with the latest generation of manually-operated Skum FJM-80S or the FJM-100S fire monitors to suit specific site conditions and firefighting requirements.

The monitors have exceptional flow performance characteristics, such as wide and adjustable flow ranges and long throw lengths – up to approximately 80 metres – to ensure fast fire knock-down. The Skum FJM-80S monitor has a water capacity of 3,700 l/m and a foam capacity of 170 l/m while, for the FJM-100S, water capacity increases to 6,000 l/m and foam capacity increases to 320 l/m.

The Raft units are built to provide years of low maintenance, trouble-free service. Even in the most extreme environments, the Skum unit has impressively robust durability characteristics. The monitor has a stainless steel body and a bronze nozzle and bearings, and is mounted onto the unit’s fully-welded tank that is fabricated from 2.5mm thick stainless steel and incorporates a 250mm diameter auto-venting, quick-release filling lid, and 2.5mm thick internal baffle plates to minimise any surge.
