The unit shall be of all brass and stainless steel construction and designed for fire pumps of 1,250 GPM
(4,690 LPM) or more. Due to corrosion exposure no aluminum or vanes shall be used in the primer
design. The primer shall be three-barrel design with direct connection to the Hale fire pump. The primer
shall automatically drain when the panel control actuator is not in operation. The connection to the
pump shall have an integral Hale strainer.
Performance, Safety, and NFPA Compliance
The priming system shall be capable to a vertical lift to 22 inches of mercury and shall be fully compliant
to applicable NFPA standards for vertical lift. The system shall create vacuum by using air from the
chassis air brake system through a three-barrel multi-stage internal “venturi nozzles” within the primer
body. The noise level during operation of the primer shall not exceed 75 Db.
Air Flow Requirements
The primer shall require a minimum of 15.6 cubic foot per minute air compressor and shall be capable of
meeting drafting requirements at high idle engine speed. The air supply shall be from a chassis supplied
‘protected’ air storage tank with a pressure protection valve. The air supply line shall have a pressure
protection valve set between 70 to 80 PSIG.
Automatic Primer Control with Vacuum Gauge Panel
The 12 volt primer control shall be an “automatic” type, with a pump panel three-way switch to operate
an air solenoid valve. The air valve shall direct air pressure from the air brake system to the primer. To
prevent freezing, no water shall enter the primer valve control.
A vacuum gauge 2” in diameter, with graduations from zero to 30 feet, shall be installed in the primer
control panel. The gauge shall be physically connected to the vacuum side of the primer and read only
when the primer is running so it will never see or be subject to damagte from high pump intake
pressures.
The automatic priming switch shall have three positions as follows:
•
“Prime” – the lower position shall be a momentary “push to prime”. The “Prime” position also
allows the operator to “ramp” test the primer without the fire pump being engaged.
•
“Off” -- center position
•
“Auto-Prime” – in the upper position, a “green” LED pilot light shall be illuminated when the
switch is the auto-prime position. The “Auto-Prime” operates automatically when the pump
69
INUNDATOR SUPER PUMPER DEMO
BID SPECIFICATION – H5580
pressure drops below 20 PSIG. The primer shuts “off” automatically when the pump pressure is
re-established and exceeds 20 PSIG. The “Auto” mode only operates when the fire pump is
engaged.
Power Requirements
To reduce the electrical power requirements on the fire apparatus the priming system shall be air
powered. The system shall not require annual tear-down and maintenance, an electric motor,
lubrication, belt drive, or clutch assembly. The maximum current draw shall not exceed 0.5 amps
during operation.

BODY FINISH PAINT - SINGLE COLOR
Y___N___
Y___N___
The body exterior shall have no mounted components prior to painting to assure full coverage of metal
treatments. Box pan compartment doors shall be painted separately to assure proper paint coverage on

All painted surfaces shall follow the following procedure to insure a lasting finish:
•
Metal surfaces shall be sanded to remove all burrs and imperfections, before etching and
treatment.
•
A wax & grease solvent shall be used to clean and prep the aluminum surface. The surface shall
then be rinsed with fresh water. This step removes wax, grease and other surface contaminants,
thus leaving a bright, clean, and conditioned surface.

A sandable primer shall be sprayed on the metal that seals the surface for the polyurethane
paint. A minimum coating thickness of 2 MIL shall be applied. Primer is then sanded smooth
leaving the best surface for topcoat.

hose should be uncoiled and laid out by one operator. Following this procedure, the hose shall not leak nor show any
damage to the reinforcement when subjected to the hydrostatic acceptance test stated above.
Ozone Resistance: Hose shall show no visible signs of cracking to the lining or cover when tested in accordance to ASTM
D518 Procedure B (100pphm/118°F/70 hours).
Chemical Resistance: Exposure to sea water and contamination by most chemical substances, hydrocarbons, oils, alkalis,
acids and greases must have no effect on the short or long term performance of the hose. A chemical resistance chart is
available and Key Hose will supply specific chemical resistance data on request of purchaser for unique applications.
Heat Resistance: The hose, when subjected to a static pressure of 100 PSI, shall be capable of withstanding a surface
temperature of 1200°F for a minimum of one minute without rupture or damage to the synthetic reinforcement.
Color: 7” diameter Agri-Flex shall be red.
Couplings: As required by purchaser. Hose designed for Pierce, Bauer, USC Hi-Flow, Victaulic field replaceable or crimped
couplings.

recharged.
At the heart of this package is a Hydro-Chem™ nozzle. When combined with a pressurized
water/foamsource, this system can extinguish a fire at ranges not possible with conventional
equipment.
The unit can provide Dry Chem flows of 5 or 7 Lbs/Second, and water/foam solution rates of 60, 95, or
125 GPM.
“PKW™” is a highly specialized siliconized Purple-K that is one of the most effective dry chemicals used
to extinguish flammable and/or combustible liquid fires. It is proven even more effective when used in
conjunction with The Hydro-Chem™ Handgun Technology to extinguish pressurized or threedimensional
liquid fires. Williams’ “PKW™” is a potassium bicarbonate-based dry chemical containing chemical
additives. The agent is free-flowing, water repellant, non-abrasive, and, when used as a fire
extinguishing agent, will produce no toxic effects.
It’s distinctive, deep purple color provides the firefighter with the ability to stay ON TARGET when the
dry chemical is projected to the fire within the water/foam solution stream. The result, when combined
with Hydro-Chem™ Technology, is the ability to achieve a quicker “knockdown”, in addition to using less
chemical to complete the job.
System Includes:
•
(2) 50’ sections of 1” flatlay Dry Chemical hose. (For Dry-Chem Use Only)
