The new Striker’s innovative fire suppression technology includes available Pulse Delivery that allows firefighters to deliver dry chemical powder in a truly “dry” form more than 27meters (90 feet), over three times the capability of other dry chemical systems. The standard 7381 lpm (1950 gpm) single stage pump provides ample fire suppression output to all discharges @ 240psi, delivering full capacity of all discharges simultaneously. In addition, there is an optional 10,000 lpm (2650 gpm) output to handle the most demanding needs.
