At the forefront of 21st century firefighting
Revolutionising the way fire is extinguished
KGI Fire’s products utilise UHP technology to improve firefighter safety
and efficiency, reducing the amount of water and allowing rapid extinguishment to take place.
What is Ultra high pressure (UHP)?
The National Fire Protection Association defines Ultra High Pressure (UHP) as fire suppression of over 1100 PSI at the pump. But what does that mean in practice?
Increased Surface Area
PyroUHP uses UHP at 1200 PSI to break down the water droplet size to 1/64th the size, therefore creating 12-16X the surface area of conventional fire suppression methods.
By neutralising the 'gaseous' phase of a blaze, as opposed to attacking the fuel phase immediately, the fire on a whole can be extinguished much quicker and with a far safer and methodical approach.
Optimised Water Droplet Size
PyroUHP uses 1200 PSI to create the most effective water droplet. This water droplet is light enough to travel in the flowpath of the fire and suppress it from a safe distance. It has been shown to be as effective as extinguishing 90-95% of the fire via indirect fire attack.
What sets us apart
UHP theory has been in development within firefighting since the early 2000s, but technological advancements have progressed exponentially…and KGI Fire is dedicated to being on the cutting edge of every development.
We carry several accreditations that make us unique within the firefighting space, most namely our Lloyds Register Approval and NATO number. We are the only UHP company in the world with these recognitions.
Our lightweight portable systems can be located in any locker on small appliances, RIV’s, or Ford Ranger style vehicles. Additionally, our LTAC system can be placed on a vehicle with a misting system providing it has a flow rate of 40ltrs per/min @100bar…giving it piercing capability.
Our piercing abrasive is organic and environmentally friendly unlike other types of abrasives on the market, that requires the residue in the system to be drained after use. PyroUHP abrasive can remain in the system after every use, reducing both waste and cost to the end user.
Most cost effective option. More often than not, we can provide systems that are not only superior in build, quality, efficiency and action, but also come substantially less expensive than our competitors.
