Firefighting Robot TAF60 and TAF60X - for atomisation of very high volumes of water

Mobile Firefighting

The TAF60 is the latest model of fire-fighting robots on the market and comes equipped with innovative new features. The previously known benefits of the water mist turbine on tracked vehicles are, of course, retained: thanks to the finest misting technology, the extinguishing and cooling effect of the turbine is extremely high (even with small amounts of water). The tracked fire-fighting vehicle itself is extremely agile, suitable for all terrains and can be completely remote-controlled. The extinguishing robot can thus be sent ahead in danger zones and protects the emergency services.

Among the innovations: the TAF60 can force through up to 6,000 litres of water per minute, which is a great advantage, especially for tackling large fires in chemical works and refineries. The total height of the fire fighting robot has been reduced to less than 2 metres, which means that the TAF60 can easily enter low buildings (such as underground car parks).

The optionally available central monitor, which can be swivelled to the side, opens up completely new operational tactics: while a hotspot is cooled with water mist, the monitor can simultaneously aim at and extinguish any adjacent embers.

TAF60X: maximum flexibility when fighting fires thanks to head monitor

TAF60X

The TAF60 is also available in an X version: the TAF60X offers all the advantages of the TAF60 and also has a head monitor attached to the turbine that can be swivelled sideways. The head monitor can be controlled separately from the turbine and thereby increases the extinguishing area many times over (inclination: left, right, up and down from-17°to +17°). The head monitor is ideal, for example, for creating escape routes during the extinguishing process.

The TAF60X offers the following advantages and benefits:

  • Maximum flexibility when fighting fires thanks to head monitor
  • Two-in-One: Large-volume cooling and simultaneously targeted extinguishing through the head monitor
  • Water throughput of 6,000 l / min
  • Total height of less than 2 metres also enables use in low buildings (such as underground car parks).
  • High cooling and extinguishing effect of the water mist turbine (thanks to atomisation)
  • The remote-controlled extinguishing robot enhances the safety conditions for the firefighters ( remote control range: 300 m)
  • Gentle foam application for liquid fires
  • Highly efficient technology for large-scale fires (especially liquid fires)
  • Ambient effect in complex building structures
  • Binding of gases and smoke improves visibility and increases safety
  • Powerful effect for the suppression of pollutants

Central and head monitor

Summary

The water mist technology, the laterally-swivelling central and head monitors, the many available options and the versatile chassis make the TAF60 and TAF60X extremely agile and highly flexible devices for fire fighting. The new extinguishing robots not only provide efficient extinguishing assistance in many fire scenarios, but above all offer increased safety conditions for the firefighters.
