Coolfire lance

The latest in cold cutting technology developed by Angus Fire, CoolFire is finding rapid acceptance by the world’s emergency services. Using a mixture of cutting abrasive and water, CoolFire cuts through building materials to gain access to a fire without introducing oxygen. Once through the building, CoolFire creates a water mist to suppress and reduce fire, cool and condense fire gases and quickly reduce the temperature to allow safe entry.

Angus Fire builds on years of investment in research and development of firefighting equipment and applies the latest engineering technology, materials and processes. This technology has been specifically developed to meet firefighters’ varied needs, most importantly to make their job safer by eliminating the risk of back draught and to increase firefighting performance.

CoolFire’s light weight ensures quick deployment and recovery after operation. The modularity and simplicity of the CoolFire system means it can be customised to suite specific requirements and environments. It can be fitted to almost any size of vehicle from new build to a retrofit installation. The choice of PTO powered or engine driven skid systems gives further flexibility in terms of deployment and vehicle choice. It can be skid mounted, retro-fitted to existing vehicles or designed into new vehicles. CoolFire can be supplied with an integrated power pack (with diesel or petrol engine) or run from a vehicle PTO.

Benefits

  • Resilience – stainless steel, NATO standard
  • Lance design and ergonomy
  • Easy and quick recharge of abrasive; non-metallic abrasive
  • Modular design making it a simple and efficient system to service and maintain
  • Efficiency -280bar at the lance end, quality abrasive
  • Low cost of use – spare parts, abrasive

Components

The CoolFire system comprises an ergonomically designed dual action lance, high pressure hose and control wire connected to a command module. When both the water and abrasive triggers on the lance are pulled, abrasive is mixed with water to produce a high pressure abrasive waterjet which penetrates through the exterior of the structure and into the fire zone.
