For over two decades Trident Emergency Products has created innovative, high-quality products for the fire service industry. Part of our culture is fast delivery and professional support services for our ever-changing world fire industry. Trident has an extensive product range including their world renowned AirPrime, AirMax, Vented Caps, and Chicksan elbows along with GP Series foam pumps and FOAMATE ATP foam proportioning devices.
One of the biggest changes in recent years in foam application firefighting is the move to fluorine-free foams. These products have a greater viscosity as listed in centipoise (cPs), which can affect the performance of your foam eductors, metering valves and foam pumps. Many of the current products on the market are not ready for this viscosity change.
Trident’s GP series rotary-gear positive-displacement foam pumps are available from 115 lpm to 1,890 lpm and are tested and UL listed for the new SFFF concentrates at 5,300 cPs viscosity. These pumps have been designed for maximum durability with mechanical seals, spherical bearings and contact-free rotor gears for lower noise and wear. Additionally, foam concentrates only contact bronze portions of the pump for maximum corrosion resistance.
To meet all the possible foam pump drive systems, including mobile and fixed systems, Trident pumps are available for direct engine and motor installations in addition to SAE hydraulic and PTO driven set ups. Both drive rotations are available.
No other foam concentrate pump can equal the Trident GP Series, in delivery, design, construction and durability. This commitment allows for foam pump delivery in 2–4 weeks instead of months for NFPA 20 or NFPA 1901 designated models that are UL Listed. Our pumps are perfect for new or retrofit purposes with the numerous configurations available.
To go along with the foam pumps there is an extensive range of components available to build a bypass or demand-type balanced pressure system. Whether buying a package or separate components for either design, Trident has the relief valves, adapters, gauges, drain and line valves along with ratio and metering valves from 50mm to 200mm for flows ranging from 227 to 13,247 lpm are available to meet your system needs.
Trident also offers, for standard wildland or municipal firefighting, our FOAMATE ATP foam proportioner for Class A and Class B foam concentrates in models designated as 1.0, 1.5, and 2.1. These are easy to install and operate around the pump systems. The 1.0 is designed to operate with class A foam concentrate up to 1,500 lpm pump performance, the 1.5 system is designed for A, B or A+B concentrate with performances up to 4,000 lpm and the 2.1 proportioner is set up for Class B concentrate with performance up to 8,000 lpm.
Additional product offerings from Trident include a broad range of adapters, elbows, swivels and caps along with AirPrime, AirMax, Drain Valves and Bleeder Valves.
