What is PyroUHP ?

 

PyroUHP is a revolutionary firefighting method using Ultra High-Pressure.

By pressurizing the fire fighting medium to 1,200PSI (~83 Bar) it breaks down into droplets of less than 0.4mm, increasing the surface area to between 12 and 16 times compared to that of conventional fire suppression methods.  This allows the firefighting medium to absorb more heat, extinguishing the fire in a shorter time compared to conventional methods.

This size droplet also light enough to travel in the flow path of the fire and suppress it from a safe distance. It has been shown to be as effective as extinguishing 90-95% of the fire via an indirect fire attack.

Applications

 
Aircraft fire.png
Aviation

The PyroLance gives crews the ability to access and precisely target engine bays, cabins, cargo holds, anywhere a fire breaks out on an aircraft.

A PyroLance can penetrate directly through any aircraft surface and direct a powerful Ultra High- Pressure stream that can pinpoint the source of a fire and cool and extinguish it with maximum effectiveness. Pyrolance can also be combined with foam systems for Call B capability.

The PyroBlitz is an essential companion to the PyroLance as it offers extraordinarily effective fire suppression with a small amount of water. This means that together, they can help preserve property.

Marine

In a battle on the high seas, PyroLance earns its stripes. The PyroLance is the ultimate marine fire suppression weapon. It allows the firefighter to mount an offensive onslaught from a defensive position. The PyroLance can pierce through a thick steel bulkhead without allowing the entrainment of oxygen, and then deliver water at 1,500 psi (100 bar) at speed of 400 mph (645kph) directly into the thermal column.

Once the temperature in a compartment is lowered, it’s time for the Pyro Blitz to shine, finishing the job and minimizing damage.

For more information, watch the PyroLance Marine video.

Structural

An assault on a structural fire is best accomplished utilizing the principle of transitional attack: cooling down gases as well as surfaces prior to a more head-on frontal strike. It is a safer way to fight a compartmentalized blaze.

The PyroLance has the unique capability of penetrating through an outside wall and encasing the fire in an ultra-high-pressure water mist, instantly cooling the internal temperature by hundreds of degrees. All the while, the firefighter remains in a defensive exterior position, greatly lowering the risk of bodily injury.

Once the interior conditions have been brought under control, a firefighter can enter the fire zone in a rapid attack, armed with the Pyro Blitz, to finish off the fire with Ultra High-Pressure fog.

his transitional attack technique provides for a super-fast response time, fierce knockdown power, the highest level of safety, and the least collateral damage to property.

For more information, watch the Structural Lance video and Blitz video.

Vehicle

Vehicle fires can be fast and furious.

 

Pyro Blitz technology gives you the mobility to get to the fire quickly and greater maneuverability on the scene.

PyroBlitz maximizes water’s effectiveness. In almost every case, the fire’s out with only 15-20 gallons. So, leave the big pumper home. And hit the road faster in a smaller, nimbler truck. In a situation where every second counts. Pyro Blitz will save you time.

The ¾ inch PyroBlitz hose is also much more manageable in close up situations. PyroBlitz unique microdroplet flow pattern will find its way into every corner of the vehicle as it is pulled towards the fire.

Products

PyroLance

PyroLance pierces the outer structure using a mixture of ultra-high pressure water and aggregate, enabling an exterior attack on the involved aircraft or structure.  

 

Once the outer surface or structure is penetrated, PyroLance continues to inject ultra-high pressure water into the thermal layer cooling the interior and dropping the temperature in a matter of seconds.

Available in Petrol, Diesel and PTO driven variants. 

Contact us for more information.

 

PyroBlitz

PyroBlitz is an offensive attack tool.  Using Ultra High Pressure to atomize the water stream greatly increasing its ability to absorb heat.

 

Available in Petrol, Diesel and PTO driven variants. 

Contact us for more information.

 

PyroLance & Blitz Combo

A total firefighting system combining the transitional capabilities of the PyroLance and the offensive ability of the PyroBlitz.

 

Available in Petrol, Diesel and PTO driven variants. 

Contact us for more information.

 

PyroLTAC

PyroLTAC is a modular lightweight unit that can be added to any UHP system.  This plug & play unit provides you with the ability to upgrading your existing UHP firefighting system by adding the transitional attack capability of PyroLance.

 

Pyro HYLO

​​Pyro Hylo is a dual system providing both UHP (Ultra High Pressure-low flow) and Conventional Pressure (High Flow). This compact, high-efficiency, two-pressure system allows simultaneous 1 ½ and ¾ inch hook-ups. Use conventional pressure for high-wind or long-distance situations and UHP for most others.
