The TD500 model is primarily designed for operations requiring larger fire flow rates as in structural fire fighting and tanker/tender filling operation. The TD500 sets up quickly with standard 2 ½” hose as the feed or “motive” and Storz coupled 5” large diameter hose for the return line. The unit is capable of generating usable flow rates of 670 gpm or more.
TurboDraft Fire Eductors provide fire departments a dependable solution to access static water sources that are not accessible using traditional drafting techniques.
Static water sources outside the reach of many engine companies’ suction hose capabilities are often overlooked, limiting the departments’ ability to provide adequate water supply for suppression operations.
With TurboDraft’s eductor technology, remote bodies of water such as creek beds, canals, rivers, ponds, lakes, and swimming pools up to 200’ away are now reachable solving a major rural water supply dilemma.
Schutte & Koerting currently offers three models of the TurboDraft Fire Eductor; these units utilize standard fire hose compliments and are capable of being operated with modern fire pump configurations. These units can be set up and returned to service quickly with minimal personnel providing for safer and more efficient water supply operations.
