Aircraft Mix
Procedure
c. On the CONTROLLER, press the ORANGE BUTTON (Fig 1.5)
to ON. This activates the system and does NOT need to be
turned off until filling exercises are complete. Use the RED
handle to turn the pump ON and OFF for the HOPPER Filling
Process.
Fig 1.5
d. Fill HOPPER to desired volume- as shown on the level
inside. (Fig1.6)
Step 1.
a. Connect the FastFiller PUMP INLET to the bulk BlazeTamer380™ concentrate tank.
b. Connect water supply to the inlet side of the INDUCTION
PUMP. (Fig 1.1)
c. Connect the high volume water pump to the outlet side of
the INDUCTION PIPE.
Important: Note the water flow direction marked on the pipe.
Step 4.
Fill aircraft using the following procedure.
Step 2.
Determine the required amount of BlazeTamer380™ for the
volume of water to be pumped into the aircraft. Refer to the
MIXING GUIDE (Fig 1.2) on the FastFiller.
a. Begin water supply to aircraft, open INDUCTION BALL
VALVE (BLUE HANDLE)( Fig 1.7) under the HOPPER allowing
for a gradual induction of BlazeTamer380™ concentrate.
Fig 1.2
Step 3.
Pump the required volume of BlazeTamer380™ concentrate
into the white hopper using the following procedure:
a. Ensure the INDUCTION BALL VALVE (BLUE HANDLE) (Fig 1.3)
Fig 1.3
underneath the hopper is CLOSED (UP) before beginning any
filling process.
b. Set the BALL VALVE (YELLOW HANDLE) to HOPPER FILL.
Important: See PART 2 of BlazeTamer380™ FastFiller Operation Manual for
AIRCRAFT CONCENTRATE TANK PROCEDURE.

b. Adjust the flow rate out of the HOPPER via the INDUCTION
BALL VALVE (BLUE HANDLE) to drain the contents in the first
50% of the aircraft tank fill. This will enable a well-mixed
solution of BlazeTamer380™ in the tank.
c. IF NECESSARY, the BUTTERFLY VALVE fitted to the induction
pipe can be adjusted to regulate the water flow pressure.
This enables greater suction or (volume) to be drawn from
the HOPPER accelerating the rate of concentrate through the
line into the induction pipe (FIG 1.8).
d. Once HOPPER is empty, ALWAYS close the INDUCTION
BALL VALVE (BLUE HANDLE).
Important: The BUTTERFLY VALVE and the INDUCTION BALL
VALVE can be restricted to prevent backflow when using
high pressure water sources.

Tank Procedure
Control Measures.
The FastFiller is equipped with a spill tray (Fig 2.6).
Use the tray to minimise concentrate spillage
when removing camlock fittings.
Fig 2.6
Power Sources.
The FastFiller is equipped with a heavy-duty
12 volt battery to power the concentrate
pump. (Fig 2.5)
Step 1.
a. Connect External Outlet (Fig 2.1) directly to the
aircraft concentrate tank.
b. Ensure HOPPER is switched OFF (BLUE HANDLE) into
the UP position. (Fig 2.2)
BATTERY running hours are limited to 25
HOURS without CHARGE.
Fig 2.1
c. Connect PUMP INLET to BlazeTamer380™ concentrate
supply.
Step 2.
a. Set the BALL VALVE (YELLOW HANDLE) to EXTERNAL
OUTLET (Fig 2.3).
Fig 2.2
The solar panel should be deployed to charge
the battery. (Fig 2.7)
Battery voltage level is shown on the
controller. If the voltage level drops below 12
volts the unit should be recharged using the
solar cell or the charge socket fitted to the
FastFiller. (Fig 2.8 & Fig 2.9)
Fig 2.7
Fig 2.8
A set of power leads (Fig 2.10) compatible with
the charge socket can be found in the battery
compartment.
Important: See PART 2 of BlazeTamer380™ FastFiller Operation Manual for
AIRCRAFT MIX PROCEDURE.
b. Press the orange button to ON. This activates the
system and does NOT need to be turned off until
aircraft filling exercises are complete. (Fig 2.4)

Service and Parts
To ensure the highest level of operational
performance the BlazeTamer380™ FastFiller should
be serviced annually in preparation for the fire
season. A service kit is available for this purpose.
FastFiller Cleaning
This unit should be cleaned at the end of the
fire season. The lines from the Hopper and the
Pump are fitted with easily removable clamps.
The CHECK VALVE (Fig 3.1) should be placed in a
bucket of water and left to soak for
15-30 minutes. Wipe off, blow dry with
compressed air and replace.
Fill the HOPPER with water and a citrus based
cleaner, allow to soak for 15-30 minutes then
drain.
This unit is fitted EXCLUSIVELY with Viton rubber
seals.

Pump Cleaning
Place the concentrate hose into a bucket of
water and run the pump for 5-10 minutes.
Use WATER ONLY to clean the pump. The small
amount of BlazeTamer380™ residue left in the
pump will pose no problems. The overflow of
water used to clean the pump can be disposed of
into an appropriate drain or onto any
earthen ground. Under a tree is always a
good place. Replace all hoses to their
original position and store.
Solar Panel Cleaning
With WATER ONLY. A damp cloth can be used.
NO detergents or amonia content products are to
be used in the cleaning process.
