The TurboDraft was able to move more water than necessary to fight the flames.
The Crane Hill Community Fire & EMS Department, in Crane Hill, Alabama recently purchased their first 5” TurboDraft unit. The Department is responsible for the protection of many lakefront homes in areas with limited or nonexistent municipal water supplies.
What We Do
Schutte & Koerting’s TurboDraft™ Fire Eductor provides fire departments with a dependable solution to access static water sources that are not readily accessible using conventional drafting techniques.
Utilizing eductor technology and water pressure from the supply engine/pumper, the TurboDraft™ Fire Eductor allows companies to tap into static sources such as lakes, ponds, streams, and swimming pools up to 250’ away from the apparatus. Quick and easy to set up, the TurboDraft™ can be deployed in a matter of minutes, using standard 2½” hose line and 5” LDH, to generate usable flows up to 670 GPM.
The TurboDraft™ Fire Eductor has been recognized by insurance agencies as an alternate water supply device. Water sources accessed using the TurboDraft™ have been given credit under the FSRS (Fire Suppression Rating Schedule) provided that other criteria such as accessibility and drought conditions have been met.
