Fire Pump

W.S. DARLEY & CO. has introduced the PSD Silent Pak pump, which allows for a 1,500-gpm NFPA-rated pump without a pump transmission. After working with Chelsea and Allison, Darley received approval for a 1,500-gpm rating from Chelsea when using its Model 870XAFJP-B5XV with a 200% ratio and an Allison 3000EVS transmission. The needed engine speed is 2049 rpm, so it can be matched with most engines capable of producing at least 225 net horsepower. The pump is quiet because there is no transmission.

Thermal Imaging Camera

DRAEGER has introduced the UCF 9000 high-resolution thermal imaging camera that is UL approved as intrinsically safe. An extended dynamic range makes it possible to clearly detect cool objects (such as people) next to extreme heat. The Scan Plus mode combines real and thermal images for enhanced detail to search for heat sources during overhaul. Other modes include a hazmat application that can help detect leaks and provides level indicators. A normal-color camera can be used to record video and sound for documentation and training purposes.
