Watch the HydroVent in Action

Video attached shows the following
Test Burn in 2 L shaped cargo containers Burn room lower right with vent window L R – Ventilation opening 2 man doors lower left with a straight visual into the fire room = FF entry attack point Drone view watch for smoke and fire conditions prior to HydroVent Once in place watch amount of ventilation and smoke color from dark to light (= interior suppression) Also watch smoke conditions opposite HydroVent -Decrease significantly (flow path), fresh air in through FF entry point Fire load per demo is explained in video
Video attached shows the following with overhead view and voice over narration.

Container Burns using a Flow Path prop. Multiple Burns were conducted. All burns yielded similar results. Draws heat and smoke out, helping to control your flow path out through the fire room while simultaneously suppressing the fire. Decreases temperatures and fire spread
Hydrovent = Hydraulic ventilation and Suppression done from the outside and left unmanned. Pulls heat and smoke out through the fire room creating a flow path away from FF’s and Victims. Hydrovent lowers temperatures and increases visibility making our job a little safer
House burn hosted by Hebron Ill. Shows the affects of the inward suppression nozzle and ventilation after. All shown through a Thermal Imaging Camera.  Hydrovent is put into the fire room from the outside and left unmanned. Hydrovent ventilates and suppresses the fire simultaneously.Lowering temperatures and softening the fire helping to control the flow path away from FF’s and Victims.
One of several Demos -All yielded similar results. In the burn room we had four 4×8 pieces of 1/2″ OSB, 4 pallets, and a full size couch. In the burn room we created high temperatures and thick smoke, so you can see what Hydrovent does for both suppression and ventilation.
HydroVent = Hydraulic ventilation and suppression done simultaneously by a single FF from the safety of the outside and then the tool is left unmanned.  This demo was conducted in an apartment with 15 foot high vaulted ceilings.  The space is naturally vented through open sliding glass patio door.
Hydrovent in vent mode only with great fire behavior and attack crew suppression.
Hydrovent hydraulic ventilation and suppression developed by FF’s for FF’s. Safe,easy,quick and it works. Put in place in seconds by a single FF from the outside into the fire room- charged and left unmanned. Ventilates and suppresses the fire at the same time making the FF’s job safer.
Hydrovent in vent mode only for training with attack crew extinguishment.

Hydrovent with both ventilation and suppression mode used- attack crew view.
Hydrovent hydraulic ventilation and suppression developed by FF’s for FF’s. A fog nozzle faces outward venting and a 2nd nozzle inward for suppression. Safe,easy,quick and it works. Put in place in seconds by a single FF from the outside into the fire room- charged and left unmanned. Ventilates and suppresses the fire at the same time making the FF’s job safer.
Hydrovent in vent mode only with no extinguishment
– 4 cameras used inside and outside cameras and TIC’s

Hydrovent is a Hydraulic Ventilation And Suppression tool that is Quicker, Safer, Simpler, and more Cost and Manpower effective than standard ventilation practices. Hydrovent is meant to be put into the vent opening of the room of origin from the outside and left unmanned. Hydrovent draws smoke and heat out, increasing visibility, Firefighter safety and Victim survivability while diminishing your extension to exposures. Hydrovent was developed by Firefighters for Firefighters and works as seen in the video.
Added to Hydrovent it makes the tool a much more usable attack line if needed
Adds distance between the shutoff and the nozzle (46″)
Attic fires Car fires Mobile homes Tractor Trailers Containers High Rise through the wall and many other uses.
