KIMTEK's new FIRELITE® Transport skid offers ultra high pressure for UTVs

New model features premium standard components and options for custom outfitting

ORLEANS, VT; November 5, 2015—KIMTEK Corporation today announced the introduction of a new FIRELITE® Transport UTV model, the FTUHP-UTV-205. Due to recent popularity of its FTUHP-400 ultra high pressure truck-based skid unit series, the Vermont-based company developed the ultra high pressure version specifically for UTV owners. Designed to fit into many of the larger side-by-side vehicles available today, the new FTUHP-UTV-205 with optional rescue area is quickly transformed for fire and rescue service and adaptable for multiple response options.

Base FTUHP-UTV-205 models include a 55-gallon poly water tank with five-gallon foam cell, the FoamPro® foam system ideal for Class A concentrates, as well as the FoamPro Turbo Stream Triplex Plunger and a 13 HP electric start pump with a dual-action spray gun that delivers foam solution over 45 feet. Allowing eight gallons per minute at 1,400 psi through 100 feet of half-inch high-pressure rated booster hose with UHP nozzle, this FIRELITE unit delivers precise and rapid knockdown. The Hannay 1500 series UHP electric rewind reel also comes standard.

As with all KIMTEK's premium skid units, the FTUHP series' base and components are constructed from aluminum tubing and bright aluminum diamondplate and feature all-stainless steel plumbing and brass valves.
