Cat Pumps Ultra-High Pressure (UHP) foam firefighting systems combine the most dependable pump in the market with foam induction technology for the best quick-response technology.
Cat Pump’s high-pressure, low-flow pumps deliver a precise metered water/foam solution up to 45 feet/13.7 m for quick fire suppression. Low-flow pumps provide increased time at the fire line, even with a limited supply of water.
The Cat Pumps UHP foam fire fighting systems use about 25% the amount of water compared to other foam technologies. Result: less water consumption and lower quantities of costly chemicals required to extinguish a fire.
Its effectiveness and low water consumption make the Cat Pumps UHP systems a popular option for brush trucks and UTV applications. Along with low water usage, the high-pressure spray penetrates deep into roots for effective fire breaks and increased protection against rekindling.
UHP fire foaming systems range from 3.5 gpm/13.2 lpm for small UTV applications and up to 200 gpm/757 lpm for military and commercial applications. Most systems operate in the 8 to 20 gpm/30.2 to 75.7 lpm range with pressures of 1,000 to 1,500 psi/69 to 103.5 bar.
For pump systems 10 gpm/37.8 lpm and lower, pumps can be belt or gearbox-driven off gas or diesel engines. For flows above 10 gpm/37.8 lpm, systems are typically belt-driven. A hydraulic-driven option is available for all fire foaming pumps.
With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the longest-lasting and most dependable high-pressure pump and systems for UHP firefighting equipment.

High-pressure fire misting systems have numerous advantages over conventional fire sprinkler systems. A water mist fire extinguishing system is more effective than a fire sprinkler system while using just a fraction of the water. Using less water minimizes water damage to areas unaffected by the fire.
Water droplets from a fire misting system are several times smaller than droplets from a sprinkler fire system. The smaller droplets provide more surface areas and yield a higher rate of heat exchange, thus cooling the fire and converting the mist to steam. Steam displaces the oxygen, helping extinguish the fire faster. Fire suppression systems save lives and money by keeping fires from spreading, and those systems rely on highly dependable components.
With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the longest-lasting and lowest cost-of-ownership high-pressure pumps and accessories for fire misting equipment systems.
