The water driven foam proportioner that is designed to accurately mix extinguishing foam concentrate with freshwater or seawater. The Turbinator is available with capacities to suit most applications and can be used in fixed systems or as a mobile unit such as fire trucks, trailers and hand-portable use.
The Turbinator consists of two main parts: a water driven engine and a foam concentrate pump. The motor and pump are connected and integrated in a compact housing. The unique design of the Turbinator makes the device self-priming. The foam pump develops a strong suction lift, resulting in a reliable and uninterrupted supply of extinguishing foam concentrate.
Compact and simple
The Turbinator is very compact enabling it to be easily installed into new systems or retrofitted into existing foam systems. There are no complicated installation requirements
Dry running to NFPA20
NFPA 20 states that all stationary foam pumps must be capable of dry running for at least ten minutes. Compliance is critical for all listed systems.
Turbinator has a very high suction lift capability and tolerance to air in the suction piping so no complicated priming procedures are required on start-up.
The Turbinator is made of materials of the highest quality class to be resistant to corrosion in the toughest environments. For the European market, the products will be CE Marked under the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and under the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC.
Developing a high quality product is more important than ever before, as market visibility to product quality has never been higher. Like our customers, we expect the highest levels of quality when it comes to the Turbinator range of products. Everything we have worked on with the development of this product has always had the goal of ensuring that we fulfil the quality expectations at all times.
