FT10e Firefighting Turbine: Stationary Fire Protection with Turbine
The FT10e firefighting turbine represents a new and innovative generation of stationary fire protection systems. It's unique characteristic: the firefighting turbine combines the advantages of an extinguishing monitor with the cooling effect of water mist.
The water mist turbine has a 360° operating range and applies water mist accurately even at long distances. Water mist achieves a higher cooling effect when extinguishing fires while requiring less water. The turbine has two internally separated water circuits that allow different spray patterns:
- a centrally located monitor generates a full jet or umbrella jet with 2,300 l/min
- a nozzle ring on the outside of the turbine produces a fine water mist with up to 400 l/min.
Since the turbine uses water mist, it offers enormous advantages in the event of a fire: on the one hand, the structure can be better cooled by the water mist, and on the other hand, the lower quantity of extinguishing water also leads to reduced follow-up costs. The FT10e firefighting turbine can be controlled fully automatically by any fire detection system. It also works with water, foam or a water-foam mixture.
All Advantages of the FT10e at a Glance
The FT10e significantly increases Protection because:
- Water mist is exceptionally effective in extinguishing fires
- The structure is more effectively cooled with water mist
- Water mist is able to envelop objects so it can also reach hidden fires
- Water mist is very efficient in suppressing contaminants and can hinder the emission of gases using water curtains.
The Firefighting Turbine is excellent for the following Applications
Fields of Application
The water mist turbine offers businesses, and emergency services personnel, extremely high levels of safety. It is particularly suitable in the following areas: recycling yards, landfill dumps, oil and gas, chemical industries, industries that use timber, and large storage facilities, the content of which include sizeable amounts of flammable material.

|Water flow||of 100 - 4.000 l/min|
|Nominal voltage||400 V|
|Nominal current||max. 29 A|
|Turbine tilt||-19° + 43°|
|Weight on machine carrier||1.000 kg|
|Choice of different nozzle heads and monitors possible|
|Fully automatic control possible with any fire detection system (CAN bus)|
|Control: manual, remote (remote control or cable), PLC or PC|
|Winter operation through internal heating|
The rate of the flow of water can be controlled in three stages because the turbine consists of a separate nozzle ring and spray head. That means that it is possible to independently use either the outer nozzle ring, or the internal spray head mechanism, or both together.
This results in the following types of spray patterns:
Mode: fine water mist, full jet (closed to open), and a combination of both.
Choice of monitor and nozzle head
Good to know
Either a monitor or nozzle head can be attached to the inside of the turbine and these can be exchanged at any time using an integrated quick connector. The FT10e comes with two spotlights as standard equipment to facilitate operation at night.
