All electrical equipment installed by the manufacturer is in conformance with current automotive electrical system standards and the requirements of the applicable NFPA apparatus standards. The wiring is individually and permanently color and function coded.

All exposed wiring runs in loom with a minimum of 300 Degrees F rating. All wiring loom is properly supported and attached to frame members along the entire rum. At any point where wire or looms must pass through metal, rubber grommets are installed to protect the wire from abrasion.

The main low voltage electrical terminal block and circuit breaker panel are provided behind the pump operators panel in a location which provides easy service access.

The electrical connections are made using heat shrink and/or waterproof connectors. All electrical circuits are protected with automatic reset circuit breakers or fuses.


Priming System 

Ventury type priming system is utilized. The primer is capable of priming the water pump through 20 of hard suction hose with a 15 lift. Primer controls is mounted on the operators panel.


Plumbing, Hoses and Lines 

All piping is stainless steel. Use of grooved end pipe couplings are required for flexibility and movement of system components on mobile equipment. The compressor hoses are made of Teflon and braded with stainless steel. Check valves are required throughout the system to maintain integrity and shall be placed so that the air, water foam and foam solution do not inadvertently mix. Drain valves are provided on the unit to completely drain the system to prevent freeze damage.

Tank to Pump 

There is a 2.5” tank to pump suction valve fitted in the module and controlled from the operator’s panel.



A gated 2.5 inlet is provided to draw water from the control panel with a 2.5” NH male connection and cap is provided.  It is possible to use that line for “direct tank fill” operations with a pressurized water source.


Discharge Outlets

There are two (2) 1.5" NST male discharges with stainless steel, plumbing to panel, mounted CAFS discharge outlets.

Swing check valve is installed to prevent foam from back flowing into the pump. All the discharge valves are a fire grade quality valves.



There shall be a 1 1/2" fire service type drop out style ball valve with 1 1/2" NSTM threads, cap and chain which shall have a hard-coated anodized, high-strength, light-weight aluminum alloy body with rugged stainless steel ball and two PTFE seats. 
The valve shall be capable of bi-directional flow with a minimum working pressure rating of 250 psig. 
All stainless steel parts shall be made from 300 series material. The valves shall NOT require lubrication of the seats or any other internal waterway component and shall be capable of swinging out of the attached waterway plumbing for easy maintenance, with the removal of six (6) to eight (8) bolts. 
This valve shall be feed from the pump head in a manner so to NOT allow the induction of foam and/or air into its plumbing allowing it to maintain the fullest of it pumping capacity as restricted by the size of the pump / engine combination and not being restricted by the foam system limitations in plain water flow.

This valve shall be capable of clean water pumping operations simultaneous to the discharging of CAFS through the other manifolded discharges as specified.

This valve shall be operated at the pump panel within easy reach of the operator and be clearly labeled as a "WATER ONLY" discharge.


Tank Refill

A 1” tank refill line with a 1” Fire grade type ball valve and flexible, reinforced hose using internally expanded fittings to allow maximum flow.


Module Frame

The frame is constructed of steel and designed for rigorous fire service.  The top of the module is an aluminum diamond-plate material, with hinge for a service access door.

All controls, inlets and discharges are clearly labeled. The labels comply with applicable NFPA standards.


Control Panel

A laser-cut control panel is mounted to the electrical box, which is of a water resistant design. The following items are marked in a logical manner on the control panel to provide for simple and easy operation.

Ignition switch
Vernier Throttle Control
High Temperature Engine Light
Low Pressure Oil Engine Light.
Low Volts Engine Light.

2.5” Fresh Water Pressure Gauge.
2 Drain Valves.



The competed unit shall undergo a manufacturers run-in test prior to delivery. The engine, pump and air compressor are operated for a minimum period of one day, during which time the test operator will monitor and record the functions and performance of each system component. Compressed air foam is produced during the test.

This testing will be performed to ensure proper system operation and performance prior to shipment. Water flow performance is measured using standard fire department test methods. 



One (1) copy of the Operation and Maintenance Manual is provided to the purchaser with each unit. This manual includes detailed instructions in the operation and maintenance of the overall unit, engine, water pump, air compressor and foam proportionner.
