Benefits of Pump Defenda

  • Creates a Safer, Cooler ‘Wet Zone’
  • pumpdefenda_SprayHelping protect the pump and adjacent assets from flame attack, ember attack, radiant heat melt-down and fuel vapourisation
  • Engine runs at a cooler, safer, more consistent operating temperature
  • Superior air supply, lower temperature and easier access compared to building the pump into a box or a pit
  • Far safer to re-fuel over wet ground in an emergency
  • Fuel container can be stored and be more protected adjacent to the pump
  • Impeller seals are now far less likely to overheat when hoses are charged with nozzle/s closed
  • Potential to be a last resort personal refuge after all else fails (not to be relied on – last resort only!)
  • Helps prevent eg. transfer or quick-fill pumps from actually starting fires eg. due to escaping exhaust sparks or windblown fuel contacting exhaust pipe
  • Environmentally sustainable – use will help to save lives and will help to save property.
