Airport fire truck, also called rapid intervention vehicle (RIV) can be used for rapidly rescuing aircraft passengers and crew, and extinguishing fire. It is also applicable to building firefighting.
The total weight of airport fire truck is 29 tons, using the German Mercedes-Benz ACTROS 3360 chassis, 6 × 6 drive, Germany Mercedes-Benz OM502LA water-cooled V-type eight-cylinder 24-valve turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine electronically controlled common rail injection, 9500L water tank, 1200L foam tank, equipped with controlling fire-fighting equipment and rescue equipments in the cab.
1. Main features of the rapid intervention vehicle (RIV)
2. Basic Parameter:
|Fire-extinguishing agents||water 9500L,foam 1200L, dry powder 300kg|
|Max. engine power||440KW (598hp)/1800r/min|
|Emission standard||EURO IV|
|Max. speed||≥40km/h, when water pump works with full power|
|Cold braking efficiency||braking distance of about 7m, at 30km / h.|
|Acceleration||the temperature at 7 ℃ above, under full load (greater than 10000L) ,accelerating from rest to 80km / h or more is not more than 38s|
|Pump flow rate||1.0Mpa,6000L/min|
|One Monitor on the roof||1.0Mpa,4800L/min|
|throw range||water ≥75m,foam ≥70m, water mist≥20m|
|Another Monitor in front of vehicle||1140L/min|
|Passengers||1＋1+4 (sleeping berth) (incl. driver)|
3. Environmental Adaptability: The airport fire truck can adapt to any of the following circumstances and will not affect any operation and firefighting systems. It can adapt to saline mist corrosion environments. If ambient temperature is -25 ℃ or 60 ℃, it can work smoothly. If relative humidity is 45% to 95%, it also can work smoothly.
★ Max. speed when pump runs with full power: ≥40km / h (Running speed when vehicle runs and fire extinguishing agents come out together.)
★ Extinguishing systems: Fire extinguishing system can be realized to put out the fire when vehicle runs and extinguishing agents (water, foam, powder) comes out together.
