Dräger FTS 8000
The Dräger FTS 8000 is optimally designed for the practical training and further education of your firefighters. The large number of possible exercise scenarios offers both beginners and advanced firefighters a challenging training. Fire developement and fire phenomena are illustrated by using a pure wood fire training. With liquid gas (LPG) a high-energy smoke layer is produced. In contrast to a system with pure wood firing, it also offers the advantage of being able to repeat the nozzle training at short intervals. In addition, a gas-fired fire place is installed in the FTS 8000. This can be operated individually or with the wood-fired system. This gives you the opportunity to combine all fire places individually for the training of different tactics for indoor fire fighting.
The combination of wood and gas-fired fireplaces combines the advantages of both fuels in one system: Use wood to produce real smoke and thus create realistic fire conditions. Gas firing ensures quickly reproducible training scenarios and a high level of safety.
Dräger has many years of experience in the development and construction of fire training systems. All components of the Dräger FTS 8000 are designed for high loads with regard to the materials used and the construction. This is because a fire training system with combination firing is subject to particularly high stress in terms of its robustness and durability as well as its exposure to heat, water, steam and smoke.
The operating concept was also designed for simple and proven handling. The entire system is controlled by the trainer via a single, handy remote control.
The Dräger FTS 8000 offers you the highest level of safety for all its realism. All training scenarios in the plant are safe and controlled. Especially the fire with liquid gas (LPG) makes high demands on the control equipment of the plant. To meet these requirements, we have developed a comprehensive safety concept. Continuous gas and temperature monitoring, special training of the trainers deployed and a comprehensive risk and hazard assessment ensure the best possible protection of participants and trainers.
The basis for the development and operation of the Dräger FTS 8000 is the proven training concept Dräger FiRE 8000: Firefighting | Reality | Education. The concept comprises the building blocks:
I Fire development and phenomena of rapid fire expansion
II Nozzle training, basics of room and smoke gas cooling
III Dynamic nozzle routing, indirect and direct fire fighting
IV Tactical procedure for fire fighting under realistic fire conditions
The training concept is part of the associated train-the-trainer seminar, which is conducted by highly qualified trainers from the Dräger Global Academy.
In addition to the aspects of safety and realism, the Dräger FTS 8000 is also designed for cost-effectiveness. The participants, trainers and equipment are not overly stressed by the low fire load in the wood-fired system and the controllability of the gas-fired system.
With the novel combination of wood, gas and liquid gas fired fireplaces in one system, we set new standards in real fire training. The Dräger FTS 8000 is the compact and mobile solution for your holistic training in indoor fire fighting.
The Dräger FTS 8000 is manufactured in accordance with international and European standards and is approved and certified by an independent testing organization (e.g. TÜV).
