NEW LEADER MIX 2000 FOAM PROPORTIONING SYSTEM
The fire equipment manufacturer LEADER just launched a new version of autonomous proportioning system: LEADER MIX 2000. With its patented mechanical and automatic mixing system, the new LEADER MIX 2000 fits for different firefighting scenarios, ensure reliable and optimum operation with low operational cost. A new version which completes the range of autonomous proportioner until then limited to 1000 l/min.
EASY TO USE AND VERSATILE FOAM DOSING SYSTEM
Designed and patented by the R&D team of the LEADER company, its unique system based on a venturi system achieve an automatic accurate aspiration of foam concentrate required to mix with water. Several fixed mixing ratios from 0.1% to 6% are available. Simple and easy to use, the firefighter just has to turn a manual selector to immediately set up and adjust the mixing ratio.
Ideal equipment for various fire interventions, the LEADER MIX 2000 is suitable for a wide flow range from 300 to 2000 l/min. It realises real-time adjustment, without human intervention, of current water flow and in case of flow variations. On large scale fire requiring high flow, it is possible to combine several LEADER MIX 2000 to go up to even larger flows. By coupling two LEADER MIX 2000, you achieve flow ranges of 600 to 4000l/min.
The LEADER MIX 2000 handle all foam concentrate types, including AR-types (wetting-foaming agents, fluorine-free foam concentrate, AFFF, AFFF-AR, proteinic foam, etc.), whether their viscosity: liquids foams (Newtonian fluids) or highly viscous foams (pseudoplastic). The equipment has been tested and calibrated for an accurate dosing, particularly for highly viscous pseudoplastic foam concentrates proportioned at 1% and 3%. The quality and performance of the produced foam are greatly related to the equipment used. With the LEADER MIX 2000, get an accurate foam and water mix for successful firefighting and avoiding to waste water and precious stock of foam concentrate.
The control panel allows to select the intervention position: water, foam or flush. The “water” position (by-pass) reduces pressure loss in the water supply when foam injection is not necessary. The “flush” position allows the dosing system to be rinsed and clean up for the next operation. The simple interface is easily understandable for fast and flawless action.
RELIABLE FOAM PROPORTIONER FOR LONG-LASTING OPERATION
As key part of the foam fire extinguishing system, the LEADER MIX 2000 foam proportioner is a 100% mechanical system, reliable and autonomous. It stand-alone and is ready to produce foam immediately. It operates without electronics and without external power supply, unlike electronic foam proportioning technologies. No periodic maintenance is required. The absence of a metering pump increases the reliability of the system and allows dry operation if the end of the tank is reached. This equipment has very low operational cost. All parts and components are corrosion resistant.
This foam proportioning system is suitable for municipal fire departments, as well as for petrochemicals plants, industrial plants, logistics warehouses, waste treatment plants applications. Matching project specific requirements, the LEADER MIX 2000 mixing system can be easily installed in a centralized foam extinguishing system (foam pourer, deluge system, high expansion foam generator…) or on a fire fighting vehicle in its “fixed” version. In its “portable” version, it can be placed on the ground close to the foam concentrate storage or on remote locations. Its “plug & play” robust construction as well as its extremely compact and light format (less than 35kg) give him maximum flexibility.
