Always one step ahead

Research and Development

The foundation stone is laid in the Research and Development (R&D) department for our solutions to fight dust, odor, and fires. 

The engineering process has a high priority within the company. Decades-long experience in nozzle technology, and with machines, plant, and turbine construction, combined with our first-class and highly motivated team results in quality solutions. 

Many of our ideas come to us via feedback from our customers, and we continue to develop and refine our products. It is also essential for us to research various technologies. Continual tests are carried out in cooperation with universities and competence centers.

Another favorite topic for our R&D department is the enhancement in the efficiency of all our components. Machines and solutions are continually improved, and efforts are always directed at improving the energy balance, without compromising on the quality.  

Milestones in Development: Fire


First Firefighting Turbine

The first firefighting turbine is constructed especially for the professional fire brigade in Bolzano. 


First Turbine on Bobcat

This special vehicle was also built for the professional fire brigade of Bolzano.


Firefighting Turbine TT20

The TT20 is developed. It is the company’s first standard model firefighting turbine
Total throughput: 1,500 l/min

Development of Large Ventilator

Development of a large ventilator in cooperation with the professional fire brigade in Bolzano


First Hydraulically-Driven Turbine TT20h

Development of the first hydraulically-driven turbine – TT20h
Total throughput: 2,500 l/min

First Firefighting Robot TAF20

Development of the first remotely controlled firefighting robot TAF20
Total throughput: 2,500 l/min


Compact Firefighting Turbine MFT35h

The compact MFT35h compact firefighting turbine is introduced at the Interschutz 2015 Fair
Total throughput: 3,500 l/min


Second Version MFT35h

Development of a second and vastly improved version of the MFT35h
Total throughput: 3,700 l/min

Stationary Firefighting Turbine FT10e

Development of the smaller FT10e firefighting turbine for stationary firefighting. It can be operated electrically and also hydraulically.
Total throughput: 2,700 l/min (at 10 bar)


Firefighting Robot TAF35

Development of the TAF35. It represents a further development of the TAF20 caterpillar vehicle. Optically the two models are almost identical, but the TAF35 represents a significant improvement to:

  • Total throughput: 4700l/min
  • Many options are available for the TAF35, among the most important are: chassis on rails/ railcar, the pressurized port, the Euro Adaptor Frame.

Patent: Railway Kit

In order to be able to act quickly and safely during operations in tunnels or subway railroads, the TAF can simply drive on rails thanks to its railway kit

This optional feature can also be retrofitted.


Patent: Variable Flow Rate Valve

Thanks to a patented diaphragm valve, the water flow rate of the turbine can be controlled variably.


Patent: Laterally Swiveling Monitor

The central laterally swiveling monitor provides even more flexibility in the fight against fire.


Firefighting Robot TAF60 and TAF60X

The TAF60 as well as TAF60X can push through up to 6,000 liters of water per minute.

Features: The overall height of the TAF60 is less than 2 meters, making it suitable for operations in underground garages. The TAF60X, on the other hand, has a so-called head monitor mounted on the turbine.

In the picture: TAF60X with switched-on head monitor

Patent: Head Monitor

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°

Milestones in Development: Dust


First Dust Controller DCT5

Development and construction of the first DCT5 Dust Controller. It is the first product on the market that features an internal nozzle head.


Complete Product DCT40

The bigger DCT40 comes on the market. It is a complete product with a pump and remote control.


First Dust Controller with two Waterways V12

The V12 Dust Controller makes its appearance. It is the first machine on the market with two waterways that can be operated remotely. The size of the droplets can also be adjusted by remote control.


Dust Controller V7

The smaller version of the V7 makes its appearance. 


Biggest Dust Controller V22

Development of the biggest dust controller in the EmiControls fleet, the V22 (reach: 70 m). It also comes as a salt version, which also works with salt water.


First Quiet Dust Controller: V12s

Development of the first quiet dust controller in the world, the V12s

First Dust Control Lance L3

The L3, the first dust control lance is developed. Its big advantage: it is straightforward to adjust and can also be used for working indoors. 


New L3 Lance

The L3 Lance in a new design makes its appearance. It can be folded away and comes with wireless remote control.


V7: World's First UL and CSA Certified Dust Controller

The V7 is the world's first dust controller to be certified to UL and CSA standards.

Heating Kit

In the same year, the heating kit for the dust controllers is developed. With the help of this kit, all machines can control dust down to -10 degrees.


New V22

The V22 is completely overhauled and also certified to UL and CSA standards.


New V12s

The quiet V12s dust controller is completely overhauled.

The first hybrid dust controller: V22Orca

The V22Orca is the first dust controller for extreme weather conditions. When dust can no longer be controlled with water mist due to the icy temperatures, the V22Orca immediately produces snow – an absolute market innovation.


The new H2 System is here

he new H2 series is a versatile high-pressure fogging system and, thanks to its modular design, can be flexibly adapted to the customer's needs.


CURTpro - Intelligent Dust Management System

Its intelligent and simple operation makes CURTpro a true "game changer". The control software can monitor all dust-binding machines, as well as the associated components of a system, and control them independently of each other in real time - all at the click of a mouse.
