Firefighting Turbines FT60h and FT60hX -
The most powerful Fire Extinguishing Tool for Trucks

Mobile Firefighting

The FT60h and FT60hX are designed for mobile application and truck use, offering superior performance and flexibility, as well as compatibility with different firefighting agents.

With these turbines, a large, previously unreached energy absorption and higher cooling effect is achieved when extinguishing fires. The combination of water mist efficiency and turbine power, is allowing it to cover larger distances with a smaller amount of water – which has so far been a challenge. The turbines are fitted with a nozzle ring, atomizing water into a fine mist, which is then at the end, distributed by a propeller towards the source of fire.

Key benefits of the turbines:

  • Higher cooling capability
  • High flexibility in generating different water spray patterns
  • Superior throw distances
  • Faster flame control and extinction
  • Low and high expansion foam compatibility
  • Interchangeable central monitor or nozzle head (within few seconds)

Both Firefighting Turbines, FT60h and FT60hX, are made to be mounted on any suitable chassis (such as various vehicles, fire trucks, trailers etc.) and can be operated right from the driver's cabin or even by remote control from outside the vehicle.

A Turbine Fire Truck – Significantly raising Safety and Efficiency Levels

Video

Safety in operations plays an essential role while operating turbines on a fire truck: firefighting with a turbine increases protection for people and structures. A turbine fire truck is very versatile and can be in use for chemical plants, at airports, in large halls, urban areas, for forest fires and many more. Thanks to the ability of enveloping objects, also hidden sources of fire can be reached, the flames controlled and finally, extinguished – all, while optimizing the usage of available water volume at the same time.

  • The turbines ensure heat is absorbed much faster, if compared to conventional methods
  • Harsh environments conception: ability of binding gases and smoke (for better vision and safer environment)
  • Suitable for nebulizing water, foam, retarder and gel additives
  • The turbines can rotate 360°, making the fire truck an optimal tool, accessing fire sources from many different extinguishing angles and scenarios

The firefighting turbine can also work with foam (>> see video).

FT60h

The most powerful Fire Extinguishing Tool for Trucks

The FT60h offers the following key advantages and benefits:

  • Flow rate of up to 7,000 l/min with two independent water circuits
  • High flexibility in generating different water spray patterns (remotely adjustable)
  • Interchangeable central monitor or nozzle head (within few seconds)
  • Superior throw distance of up to 85 m
  • Horizontal rotation 360°, vertical angle -19° to + 43°
  • Low and high expansion foam compatibility

FT60hX

Increasing Performance with Head Monitor

The FT60hX offers all the advantages of the FT60h, but has an additional head monitor attached to the turbine that can be swiveled sideways. The head monitor can be controlled separately from the turbine and thereby increases the extinguishing area many times over. The head monitor is ideal, for ensuring targeted firefighting, while the turbine is cooling the area or creating escape paths.

Extra advantages and benefits of the FT60hX:

  • 3D movable head monitor
  • Versatile 3 independent water circuit system
  • High flexibility in generating water spray patterns (for cooling and extinction)
  • Flow rate of up to 7,000 l/min

Although its powerful performance, the FT60hX turbine is still extremely compact, versatile and handy. Whether for a smaller trailer or a larger fire truck – it is the ultimate solution for mobile extinguishing.

Optionals

Our water mist technology, the laterally-swiveling central, head monitor and many additional available Optionals, make the FT60h and FT60hX extremely agile and highly flexible devices for firefighting.

The EmiControls add-on turbine for firefighting vehicles is available in various versions and can thus be optimally adapted to the operator's requirements and their specific application

Air-Ducting Hose

Highly effective ventilation of hard-to-reach areas, underground garages or hangars

Highly effective ventilation of hard-to-reach areas, underground garages or hangars

In case of fire, access to the affected premises is not always easy. The air-ducting hose is ideal when ventilating areas that cannot be reached with the TAF35, especially underground garages and hangars.

The air-ducting system is a non-rigid air hose made of a lightweight, particularly tear-resistant and non-combustible material, which allows air to be blown into smoky rooms. To do so, the air-ducting system is simply clipped onto the turbine with a ring, and can instantly be used to ventilate the area at full power.

Technical data of the air-ducting system at a glance:
• Consists of a lightweight, tear-resistant and non-combustible material
• Easy to lay out and roll up
• Can be attached to the turbine with a ring
• Ideal for ventilating hard-to-reach areas
• Available in 3 different lengths: 35, 50 and 100 m
• Fire class 1 (highest class for non-flammable substances according to UNI9167)

Lifting device

Device for raising and lowering the turbine

No more blind spots

This special lifting device was developed to improve the turbine's range of movement. This unique feature allows the turbine to still work effectively even if the operator's cab is at the same height and would restrict the spraying radius. With this optional feature, there are no more blind spots and the turbine can cover the entire 360-degree area. By using the lifting device, this problem can be elegantly solved.

While driving, the lifting device of the fire extinguishing turbine can be retracted effortlessly, ensuring driving safety.

The lifting device is driven hydraulically and can be controlled either from the driver's cab or, if available, via remote control. This flexible control option allows the operator to precisely position the turbine and direct the water jets in a targeted manner.

The maximum height that the device can reach is 85 cm.

The total weight of the fire turbine including the lifting device is 1,675 kg for the FT60h.

Hydraulic system, control and remote control

The advanced control components provide maximum flexibility and optimize fire-fighting turbine functions in vehicles.

Total control

Depending on the circumstances and customer requirements, these control components can be provided in the fire-fighting vehicle.

The hydraulic block provides reliable control to precisely control the movements and functions of the turbine.

The control electronics allow the operator to control all functions of the turbine easily and intuitively. From adjusting the spray pattern to regulating the lifting device, the control system allows the operator to adjust all parameters and use the turbine optimally.

In addition to the control system, a remote control is also available. This option allows the operator to control the turbine from a safe distance. The remote control offers flexibility and facilitates the use of the turbine in different application scenarios.

Our separate control system ensures easy operation and comprehensive control over all functions of the turbine. With this solution, we offer the vehicle constructor maximum flexibility to integrate the turbine into the firefighting vehicle system.

Thermocamera Kit

Discover sources of fire 

With the help of the thermal imaging camera, you can identify the so-called hot spots, point the turbine directly at the source of the fire and then fight it. The thermal imaging camera works without any problems, also in heavily smoke covered rooms.
