Ziamatic Unveils New Vehicle Cooling Units

The new tool may be able to help avoid the energy created by thermal runaway in electric vehicles.

YARDLEY, PA - Fires in electric vehicles often take crews longer to handle than those in vehicles with internal combustion engines. For fire crews, electrical vehicle batteries are hard to reach, difficult to cool down, and the energy created with thermal runaway can easily re-ignite or spread from cell to cell. Ziamatic’s new Vehicle Cooling Units could be the answer to those challenges, with 36” and 72” options available.

For departments with a tight budget, Ziamatic's new Vehicle Cooling Units could be an attractive option. The 36" unit (VCU-36) has a list price of $787.10; the 72" unit (VCU-72) has a list price of $1,465.70. The Vehicle Cooling Units adapt to conventional fire hoses using a NHT 1.5 double female coupling (sold with). They can be slid underneath vehicles with a ground clearance of less than 4 inches and still be very effective. Ziamatic’s 36” unit uses as little as 40 gallons of water per minute.

“We quickly realized there is a lot to learn about EV issues, but we feel we have designed a cooling unit that can help in many ways to create what may be a safer, easier way of approaching compromised EV batteries,” said Creely. “At the same time, we feel this same unit frees up a firefighter to accomplish other tasks. Once set in place, our new cooling unit can be left to continue cooling on its own.”

After more than a year of designing and testing, what may be the most cost effective and efficient Vehicle Cooling Units are now available.
