In December 2019, the 20,000th Rosenbauer FOX portable pump was ceremoniously handed over to the Elsdorf-Westermühlen fire department in Rendsburg-Eckernförde district by our Rosenbauer sales partner in Schleswig-Holstein, Kraft Feuerschutz GmbH, based in Rendsburg.
At the start of the 21st century, many experts agreed that portable pumps would play no role in the future, and that classic portable pumps would be replaced by other systems, such as in-built vehicle pumps or special submersible pumps. Due to climate change and the associated shift in operational requirements, portable pumps are required more than ever before: There has never been a time in which we have delivered portable pumps in greater quantities in Germany than in 2019. Whether as a pump at the water extraction point, as a pump on a TSF or TSF-W, as a booster pump for pumping water over long distances, or as a pump for pumping out flooded cellars: the portable pump is an extremely flexible all-rounder.
The FOX 4 supplied by our sales partner Kraft to the Elsdorf-Westermühlen fire department is a PFPN 10/1500 in terms of performance. The pump is equipped with a fully automatic pumping pressure control, fitted with an automatic cavitation warning device and overheat protection. These functions make the operator’s job much easier.
