Trident Emergency Products has been an innovator, providing world class fire industry products for 20-years. Innovations include AirPrime™, a patented air-powered fire pump primer that eliminates large current draws on the apparatus electrical system and provides greater priming system reliability. Trident also innovated and patented vented hose caps and plugs to release trapped pressure in apparatus hose line connections before removal, thereby protecting firefighters.
We added to our growing list of industry firsts by developing the GP Series™ line of rotary gear, positive displacement foam pumps for fixed foam system applications, mobile apparatus foam systems, and medium pressure water mist systems.
GP Series pumps have been specially designed with features and benefits found nowhere else. We reviewed the good and the bad of many foam pumps on the market today and developed the GP Series to provide superior performance and longevity.
Below is a recent incident in the USA:
The ITC facility chemical fire in Deer Park, Texas that burned from March 17th through the 20th of 2019, was a major incident requiring the resources of over 1,000 firefighters and dozens of apparatus from companies in the surrounding area. Several days of continuous, extensive and difficult firefighting were required to control and extinguish this blaze resulting in the damage and destruction of several storage tanks and surrounding piping. Trident is proud to announce that several of the front-line industrial apparatus were equipped with the Trident GP Series foam pumps suppling foam concentrate to the foam proportioning systems. According to the Chief of one supporting company, they responded with three apparatus, all equipped with Trident foam pumps.
A quote from the scene…
“I can’t begin to tell you how well these Trident foam pumps have performed. I had multiple foam engines involved in the ITC fire. We have had ZERO issues and the foam pumps coupled with the foam system… it is second to none. In a rough calculation… I discharged over 25k gallons of concentrate through just one of the three Trident pumps. Obviously during the fire we were off and on in foam ops… one of my engines had over 55 continuous hours of water pump time. All 3 engines were involved in the extinguishment of that fire. I am seeing a better reaction time on foam pressure, better balances, and overall quietness during operation. I have historically run other foam pumps, but that is until I went with the GP Series pumps from Trident. I’m always skeptical trying new equipment but I haven’t looked back. I also think the price point is spot on. Further, I am looking to build 2 foam tenders and those will be sporting the Trident foam pumps as well. This is a great product and I have been sharing my success with others in the industry. I highly recommend these battle proven pumps”.
The advanced pump design allows for very close machining tolerances providing increased pump efficiencies versus our competitors. This increased efficiency provides significant cost savings by lowering the power requirements (HP) of the power source.
Trident offers a full line of GP Series pumps ranging from 30 GPM (115 LPM) to 500 GPM (1890 LPM) – all self-priming. All models are designed and built in accordance with NFPA 20 Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection and NFPA 1901 Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus. Five models are UL Listed in accordance with UL Standard 448C Stationary, Rotary Gear Type, Positive-Displacement Pumps for Fire Protection Service.
In conjunction with our UL Listed foam pumps, we now offer electric motor driven pump packages mounted on a steel base frame. Just provide your foam system requirements and we’ll provide a prompt quotation and data package.
In addition to providing foam pumps with superior quality and reliability, Trident is committed to delivering pumps in a matter of weeks, not months. We maintain a large inventory of pump components and pre-assembled popular models, allowing for faster deliveries – we have even shipped pumps the next day in an emergency.
