Whether on a snowcat, an immediate response vehicle, a turntable ladder, or a fire truck: Callies systems are in use wherever a powerful response is required with a short setup time.
In addition, Callies offers stand-alone cart-mounted fire-extinguishing systems that may be fitted with high-pressure hose lines of up to 150 m (492 ft.) in length. Areas of application include fire safety services, fire watches, scene areas, and industrial applications. Especially in fire prevention, these units may be employed during fire watches, for example at welding sites.
The cart system with a capacity of up to 400 liters (105 gallons) of extinguishing water and 150 meters (492 ft.) of hose material is, for instance, used on the 18-ton special firefighting vehicle of Daimler AG at their Mettingen plant, by the factory fire department of Robert Bosch GmbH in Schwieberdingen, by Bombardier Transportation GmbH in Mannheim, and by the factory fire department of Evobus GmbH. The main advantage here is rapid deployment with maximum mobility.
A a special feature, Callies cart systems may also be equipped for stationary automatic operation. This permits the operation of fixed nozzle systems, for example, in experiment setups, test labs, with particularly high-risk machinery or components, etc.
The cart placed outside the hazard area is connected via a pipe line to the pre-installed high-pressure nozzle system. It may be triggered either manually or via the standard extinguishing interface (VdS 2540) by a central fire alarm system. With their unlimited duration of the fire-extinguishing operation and their high degree of reliability and flexibility, these systems, with their comprehensive surveillance features, provide an interesting alternative to bottle systems.
