Cat Pumps Ultra-High Pressure (UHP) foam firefighting systems combine the most dependable pump in the market with foam induction technology for the best quick-response technology.
Our high-pressure, low-flow pumps deliver a precise metered water/foam solution up to 45 feet/13.7 m for quick fire suppression. Low-flow pumps provide increased time at the fire line, even with a limited supply of water.
The Cat Pumps UHP foam fire fighting systems use about 25% the amount of water compared to other foam technologies. Result: less water consumption and lower quantities of costly chemicals required to extinguish a fire.
Its effectiveness and low water consumption make the Cat Pumps UHP systems a popular option for brush trucks and UTV applications. Along with low water usage, the high-pressure spray penetrates deep into roots for effective fire breaks and increased protection against rekindling.
UHP fire foaming systems range from 3.5 gpm/13.2 lpm for small UTV applications and up to 200 gpm/757 lpm for military and commercial applications. Most systems operate in the 8 to 20 gpm/30.2 to 75.7 lpm range with pressures of 1,000 to 1,500 psi/69 to 103.5 bar.
For pump systems 10 gpm/37.8 lpm and lower, pumps can be belt or gearbox-driven off gas or diesel engines. For flows above 10 gpm/37.8 lpm, systems are typically belt-driven. A hydraulic-driven option is available for all fire foaming pumps.
With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the longest-lasting and most dependable high-pressure pump and systems for UHP firefighting equipment.
