REV Fire Group Introduces Smart Flo™, A New Integrated Pressure Governor System For Fire Apparatus

REV Fire Group, made up of E-ONE®, KME®, Ferrara™, Spartan Emergency Response®, Smeal™, and Ladder Tower™, launches Smart Flo™, a new integrated pressure governor system now offered on its fire apparatus that puts the operator in command with total system control in one location. This advancement in pressure governor technology integrates several functions on the pump panel to aid the operator. With one press of a button, Smart Flo goes through the steps of engaging the pump, providing tank water, and recirculating water, allowing firefighters to respond even faster when arriving on the scene. This not only increases speed and safety at the fire scene but provides a new level of protection for the pump. Firefighters Performance Smart Flo will be introduced and on display at FDIC International in Indianapolis “Smart Flo represents the type of industry-changing technology that we are focused on – features that make a real difference in how the firefighter can perform without hidden drawbacks or compromises,” said Roger Lackore, Senior Director of Product Development for REV Fire Group. “Anytime we can provide an innovation like Smart Flo that allows firefighters to be more efficient and effective, we believe we have a big win for the fire service and their local communities.” Features The new Smart Flo™ integrated pressure governor system can feature: One-button pump shift Auto tank recirculation Auto tank-to-pump opening Integrated foam system control Camera display from other areas around the apparatus Operation Smart Flo works by opening the tank to the pump line to ensure the pump is flooded and ready when your crew needs water. It also monitors the water temperature in your pump housing and automatically opens a recirculation line to keep your pump cool. Operators have the choice of adjusting water flow via the Smart Flo touch screen or they can do it manually with the twister control. The generous 7-inch display screen can also feature camera feeds from the blindsides of the apparatus, creating a safe and more efficient work environment. FDIC International Smart Flo will be introduced and on display at FDIC International (Fire Department Instructors Conference) in Indianapolis, Indiana from August 5 – 7, 2021. Visit booth #3637.
