REV Fire Group, made up of E-ONE, KME, Ferrara, Spartan Emergency Response, Smeal and Ladder Tower, have launched Smart Flo, a new integrated pressure governor system now offered on its fire apparatus that puts the operator in command with total system control in one location.
This advancement in pressure governor technology integrates several functions on the pump panel to aid the operator. With one press of a button, Smart Flo goes through the steps of engaging the pump, providing tank water and recirculating water, allowing firefighters to respond even faster when arriving on scene. This not only increases speed and safety at the fire scene but provides a new level of protection for the pump.
‘Smart Flo represents the type of industry-changing technology that we are focused on – features that make a real difference in how the firefighter can perform without hidden drawbacks or compromises,’ said Roger Lackore, Senior Director of Product Development for REV Fire Group. ‘Anytime we can provide an innovation like Smart Flo that allows firefighters to be more efficient and effective, we believe we have a big win for the fire service and their local communities.’
The new Smart Flo integrated pressure governor system can feature:
- One-button pump shift
- Auto tank recirculation
- Auto tank-to-pump opening
- Integrated foam system control
- Camera display from other areas around the apparatus
Smart Flo works by opening the tank-to-pump line to ensure the pump is flooded and ready when your crew needs water. It also monitors the water temperature in your pump housing and automatically opens a recirculation line to keep your pump cool.
Operators have the choice of adjusting discharge pressure via the Smart Flo touchscreen or they can do it manually with the twister control. The generous 7in display screen can also feature camera feeds from the blind sides of the apparatus, creating a safe and more efficient work environment.
