Tap Water Sources in Remote Locations
Schutte & Koerting’s TurboDraft™ Fire Eductor allows rural fire companies to tap into water supplies like ponds, streams, and swimming pools up to 250’ away and can generate flows up to 670 GPM or more.
The 5" TurboDraft™ unit is used primarily for accessing static water sources that are not easily reached using typical drafting techniques. The 5" unit can also be used at tanker fill sites during water shuttle operations, fire scene overhaul, transferring of contaminated liquids, dewatering of low lying areas and swimming pools, for direct fire attack, fire scene water management, accessing shallow static water, among others.
Usable fire flow amounts will vary based on elevation and hose friction loss. Greater usable flow rates are achievable depending on hose friction loss coefficients or when utilizing 6” large diameter hose. Field testing should be conducted to confirm actual flow rates for each given hose configuration. (See Distant Water Source Situation table below for baseline numbers).
