Holmatro introduced a new line of innovative products to make rescue work quicker, safer and easier at Interschutz 2010 in Leipzig. One of these new products - the Personal Power Pump SPU 16 PC - has been developed in collaboration with Spark. The SPU 16 PC is a small and silent pump for hydraulic rescue equipment.
A more appropriate product launch would have been impossible; the Interschutz is the world's largest international trade fair for fire safety, rescue work, emergency help, safety and security.
Inrescue operations by the fire service, hydraulic equipment is of vital importance; for example, to cut open crashed cars and free trapped victims. The Holmatro SPU 16 PC is a revolutionary step in the market for hydraulic high pressure pumps; it is more compact, lighter and quieter.
In an emergency situation it is essential for the victim and the rescue worker that the pump is extremely silent in terms of both communication and the well-being of the victim. The coupling mechanism for the hydraulic tools and the controls are grouped together for ease of use. LED lights on the connection point for the tools also guarantee an optimum and fast work pace in the dark.
Thanks to the low weight (16.7 kg) and the ergonomic design, the pump can be safely carried by one person. The default setting for the pump is the ECO mode; the electronic engine control immediately switches back to the idle position when the tools are not in use. This minimises fuel consumption, noise and emissions.
