GECKO IQ is an automatic dosing system for high-power fire vehicles using only CLASS B foam. GECKO IQ is a high volume positive injection device with automatic regulation of dosing compared to a range of variable water flow and a concentration defined by the user on the control screen.

GECKO IQ 480 is a system adapted to vehicles equiped with a water pump low pressure (16 bar) to inject up to 480 l/min of foam with a concentration between 1 and 6%.

Operating principle

GECKO IQ starts up as soon as the battery master switch is turned on. Selecting a concentration starts the pump with an automatic priming. GECKO IQ injects the foam concentrate under pressure according to the water flow rate as soon as a nozzle is opened and automatically regulates the volume of foam concentrate via a regulation valve. External suction allows a huge using autonomy. After intervention, GECKO IQ automatically starts a flushing cycle.

System benefits

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE Injecting the product under pressure means GECKO IQ can be used whatever the water flow rate and pressure. This makes it possible to use considerable lengths of hose line. Pre-mixing is performed in the truck without any pressure loss this allows fireman deployment to be far from the danger zones.

  • TAILOR-MADE Each model has an operating range adapted to the needs of the spray apparatus and the types of risk.

  • COMPREHENSIVE • Automatic priming and flushing
    • External suction
    • Product tank filling from the ground
    • Transfer of product to an external container
    • Automatic frost protection

  • FUNCTIONAL • Compatible with all Class B foam concentrates
    • Can be fitted on all types of vehicles
    • Available as a pre-mounted kit or mounted on its own frame
    • Thermal engines or hydraulic motor
    • Easy maintenance

  • EFFECTIVE Class B foam concentrate use on industrial fires means extinguishing will be faster and easier to cool down more effectively burning areas. The possibility of injecting the product either from the tank onboard the vehicle or directly from an external stock increases the autonomy of the dosing system and allows foam to be continuously produced at a perfectly controlled concentration. The tank filling function means operators does not need to handle the product.

  • ECONOMICAL A training mode allows the equipment to be tested without foam use
    GECKO IQ dosing accuracy considerably reduces the amounts of product used during operations.
