normal operating temperatures and the battery system is fully charged. The engine shall be shut off, and the minimum
continuous electrical load shall be activated for 10 minutes.
All electrical loads shall be turned off prior to attempting to restart the engine. The battery system shall then be capable of
restarting the engine. Failure to restart the engine shall be considered a test failure of the battery system.
2. ALTERNATOR PERFORMANCE TEST
TEST AT IDLE
The minimum continuous electrical load shall be activated with the engine running at idle speed. The engine temperature
shall be stabilized at normal operating temperature. The battery system shall be tested to detect the presence of battery
discharge current. The detection of battery discharge current shall be considered a test failure.
TEST AT FULL LOAD
The total continuous electrical load shall be activated with the engine running up to the engine manufacturer’s governed
speed. The test duration shall be a minimum of 2 hours. Activation of the load management system shall be permitted
during this test.
An alarm sounded by excessive battery discharge, as detected by the warning system required in 13.3.4, or a system
voltage of less than 11.8 V dc for a 12 V nominal system, 23.6 V dc for a 24 V nominal system, or 35.4 V dc for a 42 V
nominal system for more than 120 seconds shall be considered a test failure.
3. LOW VOLTAGE ALARM TEST
The following test shall be started with the engine off and the battery voltage at or above 12 V for a 12 V nominal system,
24 V for a 24 V nominal system, or 36 V for a 42 V nominal system.
With the engine shut off, the total continuous electrical load shall be activated and shall continue to be applied until the
excessive battery discharge alarm activates. The battery voltage shall be measured at the battery terminals.
The test shall be considered a failure if the alarm does not sound in less than 140 seconds after the voltage drops to
11.70 V for a 12 V nominal system, 23.4 V dc for a 24 V nominal system, or 35.1 V for a 42 V nominal system.
The battery system shall then be able to restart the engine. Failure to restart the engine shall be considered a test failure.

UL PUMP CERTIFICATION
The fire pump shall be tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories, to perform as listed below;



100% of rated capacity at 150 psi (1,000 kPa) net pressure
70% of rated capacity at 200 psi (1,400 kPa) net pressure
50% of rated capacity at 250 psi (1700 kPa) net pressure
The entire pump, both suction and discharge passages, shall be hydrostatically tested to a pressure of 500 psi (3,400
kPa).
The pump shall comply with the applicable requirements of "Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus 1901, latest edition.
The pump shall be capable of producing fire streams that are free from objectionable pulsation under all normal operating

FOAM SYSTEM TEST
The apparatus foam system shall be tested and certified by the manufacturer. The certification shall be delivered to the
customer with the apparatus.
The test shall be performed with the air temperature between 0 degrees F and 100 degrees F.
The foam system will be tested to comply with requirements of NFPA 1901. The basis for the test is as follows:
A base calibration range is established using water and foam concentrate from the system to be tested. Two standard
solutions are made, a minimum allowable foam percent and a maximum allowable foam percent solution for each foam
proportioning system foam percent setting to be tested. The minimum allowable and maximum allowable foam percent
solution are determined using the criteria given in NFPA 1901, "Foam Proportioning System Accuracy".
After the standard foam solutions are thoroughly mixed the conductivity (a measure of a substances ability to conduct
electricity) of each solution is measured. The conductivity of a solution is directly proportional to the percentage of foam in
the solution. The reading is recorded on the certificate by the Testing Official. From these two readings a range is
established for that particular foam proportioning system's foam percent setting.

foam proportioner being tested. When the test sample has been collected its conductivity is measured and recorded by
the Testing Official. The Testing Official then compares the conductivity reading of the test sample to the minimum and
maximum allowable conductivity readings taken from the two standard solutions. If it is greater than the minimum
allowable conductivity, but less than the maximum allowable conductivity, the foam proportioning system is determined to
be accurate at that foam percent setting.
The above procedure is performed at three foam proportioning system foam percent settings. The foam percent settings
are:
1) The minimum foam percent setting available.
2) A mid-range foam percent setting, if available.
3) The maximum foam percent setting available.
The foam proportioning system is certified to be accurate if all three foam percent settings produce conductivity,
measurements in the range of conductivity' as determined by' the standard solutions for each foam percent setting. The
Testing Official makes the final determination of the foam proportioning system accuracy as installed by' the apparatus
manufacturer.
Criteria for the following systems:



Class A foam - .1%, .5%, and 1 .0% settings if available.
Class B foam - 1.0%. 3.0%, and 6.0% settings if available.
Class A and Class B foam - .1% and 1.0% using Class A foam and at 3.0% using Class B foam or at .1% using Class
A foam and 3.0% and 6.0% using Class B foam.

BODY DESIGN
The importance of public safety associated with emergency vehicles requires that the construction of this vehicle meet the
following specifications. These specifications are written to establish the minimum level of quality and design. All Bidders
shall be required to meet these minimum requirements.
It is the intent of these specifications to fully describe the requirements for a custom built emergency type vehicle. In
order to extend the expected service life of this vehicle, the body module shall be removable from the chassis frame and
be capable of being installed on a new chassis.
The sheet metal material requirements, including alloy and material thickness, throughout the specifications are
considered to be a minimum. Since such materials are available to all Manufacturers, the material specifications shall be
strictly adhered to.
The fabrication of the body shall be formed sheet metal. Formed components shall allow the Loveland Fire & Rescue to
have the body repaired locally in the case where any object has struck the body and caused damage. The use of
proprietary extrusions will prevent the Loveland Fire & Rescue from such repair and shall NOT be used.
Following construction of the subframe, which supports the apparatus body, the sheet metal portion of the body shall be
built directly on the subframe. The joining of the subframe and body shall be of a welded integral construction.
The sheet metal fabrication of the body shall be performed using inert gas continuous feed welders only. The entire body
shall be welded construction. The use of pop rivets in any portion of structural construction may allow premature failure of
the body structure. Therefore, pop rivets shall NOT be used in the construction of the structural portions of the body. This
includes side body sheets, inner panels of compartment doors, and any other structural portions of the body.
EXTERIOR ALUMINUM BODY
The fabrication of the body shall be constructed from aluminum 3003H-14 alloy smooth plate. This shall include
compartment front panel, vertical side sheets, side upper rollover panels, rear panels and compartment door frames.
The body compartment floors and exterior panels shall be constructed with not less than 3/16" (.187) aluminum 3003H-14
smooth plate. Interior compartment dividing walls shall be constructed with not less than 1/8" (.125) aluminum 3003H-14
smooth plate. Lighter gauge sheet metal will not be acceptable in these areas.
The door side frame openings shall be formed "C" channel design. An electrical wiring conduit raceway running the full
length of exterior compartments shall be provided. This raceway shall contain all 12 volt wiring running to the rear of the
apparatus, permitting easy accessibility to wiring.

Flowmeter
A paddlewheel-type flowmeter shall be installed in the process manifold upstream of the foam injection point and shall be
connected to the microcontroller. A stainless steel paddlewheel with jewel bearings and carbide axle shall be utilized for
improved accuracy and long life. The flowmeter shall have a 600 PSI (34 BAR) pressure rating per NFPA requirements.
The flowmeter function on the OIT shall display the water rate of flow in real time as well as the total water used during

Foam Pump
A 12 or 24-volt electric motor driven Hydra-Cell positive displacement foam concentrate pump, rated at 3 gpm (11.3 lpm)
at 150 psi (10 BAR) and with operating pressures up to 450 psi (32 BAR), shall be installed in a suitable, serviceable
location. The system shall draw a maximum electrical load of 40 amps @ 12 VDC or 21 amps @ 24 VDC. A pump motor
electronic driver, located inside the controller housing shall receive signals from the microcontroller and power the 1/2 hp
(.4 Kw) electric motor in a variable speed duty cycle to ensure that the correct amount of foam concentrate as set by the
pump operator is injected into the water stream. The highly efficient Hydra-Cell Industrial diaphragm pump is a
hydraulically balanced diaphragm pump offering many inherent advantages over other types of pumps for pumping foam
concentrates.
The Hydra-Cell pump converts rotating motion into linear motion by means of a drive shaft assembly, sequentially moving
hydraulic pistons which are filled with oil in a rearward and forward stroke. The oil held in the piston balances the back
side of the diaphragm and causes them to flex forward and back providing the pumping action.
To provide long lasting, trouble-free diaphragm life, the Hydra-Cell hydraulically balances the diaphragm over the pump’s
entire pressure range, even at peak pump pressures. Each diaphragm has its own pumping chamber with its own suction
and discharge valve assembly, so as each diaphragm strokes back, fluid enters the pump through the inlet and on the
forward stroke the diaphragm forces the fluid through the discharge valve assembly into the outlet manifold and out of the
pump. All of the diaphragms in the pump are equally spaced from one another while overlapping pumping strokes result in
low discharge pulsation. Pump output flow shall be proportional to pump shaft speed (RPM) regardless of pressure, thus
a linear flow relationship shall exist with increasing or decreasing pump RPM.
The pump shall be self priming and capable of drawing foam concentrate from reservoirs or containers which are located
below the pump inlet. Lift time and distance will depend on product viscosity. Overboard foam sources may be utilized
when the apparatus is equipped with the proper piping, connections and selector valve(s).
For reduced maintenance, the pump shall utilize no packing, cups or seals. All metal pump components which may come
in contact with foam concentrate shall be brass or stainless steel, making the pump resistant to chemical and corrosive
attack. It shall be capable of handling suspended abrasives without sustaining any damage. The pump shall also be
capable of running dry for extended periods without sustaining damage.
Control Cables and Connectors
The cables for interconnection of the control unit, OIT, conductivity sensors and flowmeter shall be electrically shielded to
prevent radio frequency or electro-mechanical interference.
Low Tank Level Switch
A low tank level float switch shall be installed in each foam concentrate tank and connected to the control unit to alert the
