The fire industry is what started it all for Tempest and positive pressure ventilation/attack (PPV/PPA). Working alongside a number of innovative fire departments in California, we were involved in supplying the first ventilators used in the initial testing of PPV/PPA. Since that time, we’ve become well known as the leading supplier for quality, American made positive pressure ventilation fans used all over the world. We take tremendous pride in our origins and owe much, if not all of our success, to our wonderful firefighting customers.
Safely Expelling Heat, Gas And Smoke. While the thought of introducing fresh air to a fire makes most uncomfortable, positive pressure attack (PPA) sees its success by simultaneously removing two other necessary elements of fire production, heat and fuel (smoke), counter-acting any initial danger experienced by the introduction of fresh air. Of course, venting a fire, especially a ventilation limited fire, will increase fire growth if enough time is permitted. Yet this is not a concern as firefighters are now able to find, reach and attack the fire much more rapidly once PPA is initiated. With PPA, firefighters enter a structure standing, not crawling, with clear visibility and in dramatically lower temperatures and reduced levels of hot fuel (smoke).
Tempest’s line-up of tools used in firefighting includes not just Positive Pressure Ventilation and Attack fans but a wide array of firefighting related equipment including VentMaster® Fire Rescue Chain and Cutoff Saws, Smoke Machines, Mobile Ventilation Units (MVU®), PathMaster® Smoke & Flow Path Curtains, Leader Fans, Robwen Foam Proportioners, Leader Firefighting Nozzles, Leader Large-Flow Ventilators, Leader Fire Trainers, and more.
