These 3 inventions make it possible for firefighters to extinguish fires without getting close to the flames
- These three inventions are major advancements in firefighting technology.
- They can be placed in hazardous situations so that humans don't have to go in to suppress the flames.
- From water-blasting robots to flame-suppressing dodgeballs, watch the video above to see how these inventions can change the way firefighters extinguish fires.
Following is the transcript of the video.
Thermite 3.0. This firefighting robot is called Thermite 3.0. It pumps 2,500 gallons of water per minute. It's made from aircraft-grade aluminum and steel and can be sent to areas too hazardous for humans.
Foam fire-suppression system. This foam fire-suppression system stops fire in under five minutes. The foam mixes with water to expand and floats above the fuel. It dissolves right through the concrete floor.
Elide fire ball. This flame-suppressing dodgeball puts out fire immediately. It activates three seconds after touching the fire, instantly releasing fire suppression chemicals.
