New transport skid offers ultra-high pressure extinguishing power for UTVs
Published:  17 November, 2015

Kimtek has announced the introduction of a new Firelite Transport UTV model, the FTUHP-UTV-205. Due to recent popularity of its FTUHP-400 ultra-high pressure truck-based skid unit series, the Vermont-based company developed the ultra-high pressure version specifically for UTV owners.

Designed to fit into many of the larger side-by-side vehicles available today, the new FTUHP-UTV-205 with optional rescue area is quickly transformed for fire and rescue service and adaptable for multiple response options.

Basic FTUHP-UTV-205 models include a 250-litre poly water tank with 3-litre foam cell, the Foampro foam system ideal for Class A concentrates, as well as the Foampro Turbo Stream Triplex Plunger and a 13 HP electric start pump with a dual-action spray gun that delivers foam solution over 45 feet. Allowing 36 l/m at 1,400 psi through 3048 metres of 1.27m high-pressure rated booster hose with UHP nozzle, this Firelite unit delivers precise and rapid knockdown. The Hannay 1500 series UHP electric rewind reel also comes standard.

As with all Kimtek’s premium skid units, the FTUHP series' base and components are constructed from aluminium tubing and bright aluminium diamond plate and feature all-stainless steel plumbing and brass valves.
