Heli-Hydrant

A HYDRANT FOR HELICOPTERS

Superior Tank, in conjunction with Whaling Fire Line Equipment, is pleased to announce the latest tool in the battle against wildfires.

The Heli-Hydrant is an open-top bolted steel tank which acts as an essential tool for water-dropping helicopters to dip and reload their water snorkels with ease and convenience. Using a pilot-controlled radio device, the helicopter pilot has the ability to send a radio signal from the helicopter to activate the automated valve system which can fill the 1,700-gallon water tank in under 90 seconds.

Utilizing a Force Multiplier System, the Heli-Hydrant is capable of supplying any number of helicopters with an unlimited supply of water at a refill rate of 1000+ GPM; hydraulics are calibrated for each tank site to provide the proper refill rate needed for the helitankers.

By strategically placing a Heli-Hydrant in high fire-prone areas, you can seamlessly integrate this technology into an already existing municipal water systems, like fire hydrants or water tenders. The automated valve control system constantly remains on standby until the signal to fill is activated, and when need be, can also be deactivated so that any unused water safely drains out of the tank. The Heli-Hydrant ensures rapid and efficient access to water across large wildlife areas, and will revolutionize fire-fighting for generations to come.
