HydroVent is a hydraulic ventilation and suppression system developed by Firefighters for Firefighters, and is dedicated to Safety Through Training.
How it Works
- Hydrovent is put in place from the outside by a single Firefighter and left unmanned.
- Hydrovent will then ventilates thousands of CFM.
- The vent nozzle uses approximately 95 gpm and the Suppression nozzle uses approximately 95 GPM
- Hydrovent can be used from basement through high rise and roof cuts
- Broken down from “Vent to Attack” without shutting down
- Hydrovent can even be used to break windows for effective placement
- High rise- placed in from the safety of the floor below
HydroVent = Hydraulic ventilation and suppression done simultaneously by a single FF from the safety of the outside and then the tool is left unmanned.
- 95 GPM fog out (Ventilation) – Approx. 95 GPM in (Suppression)
- Weight 20 lbs. +-
- Meant to be placed into the fire room from the outside
- Hydraulic ventilation (Fog) out through the fire room – pulling heat and smoke out away from FF & Victims
- Suppression simultaneously (Straight Streams) into the fire room – softening the fire – Dropping temperatures – Slowing fire growth and fire extension
- Entry point – FF’s bring fresh air in with them – Flow path is directed out through the fire room
- Protects exposures – Fog
- Can be utilized to break windows and can be easily placed in Basement-1st-2nd – roof and high-rise ventilation openings.
