Econo CAFS

Forward

• More and more fire departments are ordering high-energy compressed air-foam systems (CAFS) because foam is much more efficient than plain water for fighting fires. CAF quickly chokes the oxygen in a fire - no oxygen, no fire. CAF also retains moisture, making surrounding objects less susceptible to radiant heat and flare-ups. CAFS are the most effective method of foam delivery.

• CEM CAF now gives you the power of a larger CAFS in a compact, lightweight, and inexpensive unit. EPI is the only pump manufacturer in the world to research, develop, and design a new pump technology for CAFS to replace low-efficiency centrifugal pumps, air compressors, and priming pumps. One pump -- the patented CEM (Cylindrical Energy Module) Positive Displacement Rotary Pump - compresses air, flows water, self-primes, and makes foam.

• CEM now gives you the power of a larger CAFS in a compact, lightweight, and inexpensive unit.

One pump -- the patented CEM (Cylindrical Energy Module) Positive Displacement Rotary Pump - compresses air, flows water, self-primes, and makes foam.


•The CEM Econo-CAFS™ is the first compressed air-foam system priced to meet the volunteer and rural town fire department budget. Designed with economy in mind, the 80gpm CEM Econo-CAFS™ has a modular frame, diamond-plate base, and injection-molded pump components. The Econo-CAFS'™ patented 12-cylinder, rotary design, positive-displacement pump produces 24 output cycles per revolution for smooth high-pressure performance. CEM's CAFS pump components are constructed from self-lubricating UHMW-PE, leaded brass alloy, and stainless steel for light weight and durability. Manufactured with only seven internal moving parts, maintenance requirements are minimal.


•No centrifugal pump of equivalent size can match the performance of the CEM Econo-CAFS™. The Econo-CAFS™ does not require an air compressor -- a limiting factor in foam output performance.


•The Econo-CAFS™ foam system is state-of-the-art. The CEM CAF automatically meters air, foam, and water with precision. The attachments and power hookups needed for other CAFS are eliminated. Also gone, the failure potential associated with electronic proportioning devices and add-on eductors. For fast conversion from foam making to water drafting, simply close the air and foam proportioning valves. CEM Econo-CAFS™ offers firefighting technology that is simply superior.
