The AirCore solution is based on the idea of distributing water mist with a jet of air produced by a turbine, which can extinguish fires much more efficiently. The firefighting turbine is therefore mounted on a tracked vehicle commanded from remote or onto a truck.
In the firefighting sector, water mist is known to be an effective extinguishing medium: the cooling effect is greater and less water is used. Up to now, however, the obstacle to its application was the limited range of the water mist. Therefore, in 2014, EmiControls and Magirus combined efforts to solve this problem: thanks to the use of a turbine with a propeller, water mist can now be projected to cover greater distances (even up to 80 meters). Water consumption can be regulated from 0 to 4700 litres per minute.
