Mobile Firefighting
Supporting Machine LUF
The Mobile Firefighting Supporting Machine (LUF) is
a radio controlled tracked vehicle that can be send
as advance guard equipment up to 300 metres in
front of firefighting forces. A water-spraying system
that can spray up to 400 l per minute under high
pressure is mounted on the vehicle.
The myriads of smallest water drops lower the temperature very fast to a temperature that is tolerable
for fire fighters. Soot, dust and dirt particles will be
bound immediately and the sight will be improved
At a fire test in an Austrian tunnel, the temperature
beneath the tunnel’s ceiling had been lowered
from more than 1,000°C to 150°C within approx. 5
minutes by using the LUF60!
Even if there is a threat that the building may
collapse, the LUF60 can be brought to the seat of
fire without endangering rescue squads. The sight
that is improved by the LUF60 and the lowered
temperature enables an extinguishing of the fire
by the fire fighters and therefore a fast moving of
