How to correctly use the suction pipe of foam fire truck to absorb water?

1. Park the fire truck next to the water intake point as close as possible to the water source to shorten the length of the suction pipe

Connect the first star of the suction pipe according to the distance of water intake, with one end connected to the fire pump and the other end connected to a water filter and placed into the water.  Start the fire pump and vacuum pump to absorb water. 3. Precautions for using a suction pipe:

1.Do not forcefully drag the suction pipe on the ground to avoid wearing the aluminum interface;

2. When using, the interface must be tightly connected to prevent air leakage and water absorption. When the outdoor water source absorbs water, a water filter should be installed at the end of the suction pipe, and the depth of the water filter from the water surface should be at least 20cm~30cm to prevent the occurrence of vortex on the water surface and the suction of air. At the same time, it is necessary to avoid contact between the water filter and the mud surface of the water source to prevent damage to the water pump due to the inhalation of a large amount of mud and sand. When there are many mud and sand debris in the water source, a filter pipe should be installed on the water filter.

3. The suction pipe should be laid as short and straight as possible. When using coiled suction pipes, it is advisable for fire trucks to be able to place all coiled suction pipes in a position that avoids the height of the bend of the suction pipe exceeding the inlet of the pump and creating an "air bag" that affects water absorption.


4. When the suction pipe crosses the road surface, vehicles are strictly prohibited from driving over it, otherwise the suction pipe will be crushed and unable to suck water.

 Water outlet operation of ISUZU Water Foam Fire Fighting Truck:

1. Open the rear inlet and outlet valves;

2. Step on the clutch pedal and attach the power take-off;


3. Slowly release the clutch pedal and then slowly add fuel to the door. Connect the water hose and water gun, turn on the water outlet switch, hang the power take-off, turn on the water inlet switch, add oil. If the water comes out, you can also choose not to add oil, as the pressure is relatively low.


The water suction operation process of Isuzu foam fire truck:

the fire truck is equivalent to a water pump, and the fire truck is equipped with a water suction pipe. After the water suction pipe is connected, the water suction operation can be carried out directly.

Water tank fire trucks can be divided into four parts according to their functions

1. The front part of the fire truck is the cab, where the driver and commander sit in the cab

2. Behind the cab is the location of other firefighters

3. Various tools are placed behind the first rolling shutter of the vehicle, including faucets, fire hoses, etc


4. Behind these tools is a water tank for storing fire water. Near the rear of the fire truck is the water pump compartment, which is the place where the water pump is installed. Generally, there are rolling shutters on all three sides of the water pump compartment. When the rolling shutters at the rear are folded, a display screen displaying the working status of the water pump can also be seen. In the water pump compartment, there are generally necessary tools for using the water pump.

Operation process of ISUZU Foam Water Fire Fighting Truck releasing foam

1. Start the vehicle, press the clutch and press the power take-off (commonly known as water pump switch) for 3 seconds, then slowly release the clutch. At this time, the engine sound is muffled, indicating that the water pump is engaged.

2. Turn on the main power switch, main air source switch, and cannon power switch,

3. Confirm that the water outlet valve is open or operate the water cannon in place before opening the water inlet switch

4. Apply pressure to release water. Be careful to apply pressure and reduce pressure slowly, as sudden pressure can easily cause water collapse and harm people. Sudden decompression will cause water recoil in the hose and hurt people. If foam is needed, open the foam valve.


After the vehicle has discharged water, it is necessary to turn off the water pump switch first to avoid excessive water pressure and damage to the water pump. Then turn off the foam valve, flush the foam in the pipeline and water pump, and turn off the foam valve in turn before entering water. Power supply for the cannon, main steam source, and main power switch, and finally drain the residual water in the water pump and pipeline. Note that no one should stand at the water outlet and hose connection. Water cannons and water guns cannot be used at the same time. The required water pressure for the two is different. Water guns usually have 5 or 6 pressures, while water guns can reach 12 or 13 pressures. The above makes it easy to master various operating methods. In fact, after you have a complete understanding of the vehicle, the operation is very simple and the steps are not very cumbersome!
