PREAMBLE

The Rosenbauer Air Crash Rescue and Fire Fighting Vehicle hereafter referred as to ARFF has
been designed for effective fire fighting in high fire risk areas, like Airports and its vicinity.
The ARFF design includes extinguishing agent water, foam compound and dry powder and can
operate from its own tank supply, fire hydrant or open water sources.
All components of this vehicle are made of approved products, steadily improved and developed
which guarantee reliable, long-lasting performance and safe operation.
It can also operate in desert terrain at high ambient temperature as well as salt laden, high
humidity atmosphere. The all-wheel drive capability and the differential locks in the rear axles,
provide excellent cross-country performance.
The engineering & construction of our products are conducted by procedures following the IQNet
Certificate of Quality Management System ISO 9001 (Registration Number: AT-143/0) and also
OQS Certificate of Quality Management System complying with the requirements of standard
ISO 9001:1994 (Registration No.: 143/0).
In addition, Rosenbauer International AG has also been certified according to the OQS
Certificate of Environmental Management System complying with the requirements of standard
ISO 14001:1996 (Registration No.: 028/0).

FOAM PROPORTIONING SYSTEM "FIX-MIX", MODEL NP

Design:

This
automatic
"Around-the-Pump"
type foam
proportioner makes it possible to induct foam compound
to the water at the correct proportioning ratio,
independent of pump pressure and/or discharge. This
system works in both the high and normal pressure
range of the pump. After the pump has been engaged,
only the foam system has to be switched on, and the
correct percentage of foam compound will be admixed
automatically.

Material:

Metering and proportioning valve in the proportioning


unit are made of gun-metal.

Advantages:
Specification
079-05003 FLF 5400

Since the admixing of foam compound does not have to


be done manually, there is no waste of foam compound.
9 / 14

Division
SFV - 4 / HDr

9.

The foam proportioning system "FIX MIX" is suited for


all protein and Fluorprotein based foam compounds, as
well as for synthetic foam compounds, including AFFF.

The automatic foam proportioning is done with low


pressure loss and operates within the pump output
range of 100 l/min and maximum pump output, as well
as at a pump pressure between 5 bar and maximum
pump pressure. The rate of admixing can be adjusted at
3% or 6%.

FOAM/WATER MONITOR RM 25 E

Make:

Rosenbauer

Type:

RM 25 E, with O-stream nozzle, without barrel.

Location:

On the cab's roof.

Control:

Electronic remote control from inside the cabin, by a


single hand "slave type" pistol shape joy-stick, which will
always indicate the direction of the monitor.

Emergency control:

In case of electric failure, the monitor can be operated


manually from the roof of the vehicle, by a worm gear
control.

Operation ranges:

Foam straight stream


Water straight stream
Foam dispersed pattern
Water dispersed pattern

O-stream nozzle:

For producing a dispersed pattern or a full stream, with


continuous adjustment. Control from inside the cabin.

Output:

2.400 l/min at 10 bar

Output reduction:

If desired, the output can be reduced to 50%, simply by


actuating a control
on the monitor control panel in the cabin.
In this case, the monitor throw will be reduced by at
least 10 metres.

Expansion:

Foam expansion will be between 1:3 and 1:6,


depending on type of foam compound used.

Rotation:

270 degrees

Elevation:

0 - 70 degrees

Depression:

From zero to maximum minus 15 degrees. Due to the

valves are set to blow off at 14 bar.

Painting:

The dry powder container, as well as the relevant


pipework, is painted in the same colour as the main
colour of the vehicle.

Standards:

The dry chemical powder container is made in


accordance with the prevailing German standards for
design and manufacturing of pressure vessels "ADMerkbltter" B 0, 1, 3 and W 1. All materials used are as
per DIN standards. The manufacturing process is under
supervision of the German TV (Federal Technical
Supervision Agency) and a copy of the test certificates
will be delivered with the powder unit.

panel comprises:
 Lever for pressurising the powder container
 Lever for powder discharge left hand hose
 Lever for powder discharge right hand hose
 Control for flushing the left hand hose
 Control for flushing the right hand hose
 Control for depressurising the powder container
 Pressure gauge for powder container
 Pressure gauge for nitrogen cylinder, with a ball
type valve fitted directly after the gauge to prevent
the filling of the container during testing.

Inert Gas:

One 25 litres capacity nitrogen cylinder, filled at a


pressure of 150 bar, serves as expelling gas for the drychemical powder. The filling pressure is related to a
temperature of 15 degrees Centigrade. Testing
pressure of the cylinders is 300 bar. The nitrogen used
is 99% pure, with a maximum steam content of 30 ppm.
The cylinder is painted black (RAL 9005) as per
