TurboFoam Installation Video

Monday, April 1st, 2013

John McLoughlin and Brian Roherich worked to put together this great installation overview for FRC’s new TurboFoam Direct Injection Foam Proportioning System. This video in no way replaces the installation manual, but it does cover the basics of installation. This is not a sales or operations video! You will not learn how to operate the TurboFoam system here. It describes the steps a truck builder needs to perform to install the new foam system. The audience for this video is District engineers and mechanics, OEM engineering staff, and technically minded folk who want to understand the components of the TurboFoam system.

The PRO-T governor and engine panel

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012


An important item to consider when planning equipment for a new vehicle purchase is whether the new equipment will require operator retraining. This is particularly true for pressure governors on pumpers. FRC’s PRO governor set the standard in 1992 and was accepted and widely used in the industry for 20 years. The new PRO-T Panel provides a governor interface and engine panel display that operators can be immediately comfortable with, all built with the latest technology and safety features.
