Even if fires and natural disasters can cause the same damage all over the world, the design of the fire fighting vehicles requires taking into account country-specific standards and circumstances. Our philosophy to supply customers with customised fire fighting vehicles creates a range of variants which is not only reflected in the body colour. We adapt our vehicle bodies to customer requests down to the last detail. This individuality makes EMPL unique.
EMPL vehicle bodies are manufactured with ALU-Tech panels. These combine aluminium cover layers with a PP honeycomb core. The inner plastic coating allows easy cleaning.
When the driver’s cab is tilted, the crew compartment remains mounted to the chassis. This makes the truck easy accessible for service work. Equipment compartment structure and cab are mounted separately so no “additional” tensions are generated when driving on difficult terrain.
Whether analogue pump control stations as per AGBF (Working Group of Managers of German Professional Fire Services), operation via screen using CAN bus system or individually designed pump control stations. EMPL offers the full range of solutions for a variety of different customer requirements.
A CAN bus system is used to control all important devices, call up status functions, observe system status and monitor command execution. It is a universal interface which makes the information from one control device available for all other devices.
EMPL human interaction technology is the simplest and easiest way of operating a pumper. The control uses a fully automatic, self-monitoring system with a 7” LCD colour display with LED backlight in the driver's cab and on the pump control station.
Individual control stations are designed together with the customers control stations from existing vehicles can also be implemented.
The fire fighting pump made of corrosion-resistant light alloy is driven by the vehicle engine. It is equipped with an aluminium impeller for normal pressure. The impeller is mounted on a stainless steel pump shaft and runs on high-performance bearings with lifetime lubrication. This means the EMPL centrifugal fire fighting pump is completely oil-free and requires no maintenance at all.
State-of-the-art paint systems (enamel finish) in-house ensure best possible quality and durability of the paint finish.
Complete chassis and body conservation in 2-layer process to military standard, incl. certification for resistance to condensation and salt spray. This provides perfect protection against corrosion.
