Solar Fire Drum by ABC Solar
Solar Fire Drum

According to the PHOS-CHeK Home Defense Brochure, the active fire retardant in PHOS-CHeK changes the flammability of wood, plants, and other fuels by altering their combustibility when exposed to fire.

When the heat from fire reacts with fuels coated in PHOS-CHeK, water and carbon graphite are formed instead. The water boils off, cooling the fire. And the carbon graphite forms a protective, non-flammable barrier around the fuels, effectively preventing a wildfire from moving closer to your home.

Wood and other cellulose materials that have been treated with PHOS-CHeK retain their fire-retardant properties until the retardant has been washed away or rubbed off.

Since 2000 ABC Solar has been designing, testing and selling solar applications. We try a variety of combinations and when we get it right we then make available. Basically we break things first, then fix, change and cajole a new solar application to life.

The Solar Fire Drum is the most exciting project in 18 years and it might indeed help prevent fire at your property. No water pressure or power during a fire emergency makes the solar powered battery operated solar fire drum a true resource.

    ABC Solar has been solar pumping water from day 1 of our founding 18 years ago. Our deep experience with solar DC water pumps is a key benefit in the design of the solar fire drum kit and systems. Our 12v demand pump can run dry and move water at sprinkler speed 40 feet up a tree. Call us today to learn more.

  • Remote Control Sprinkler System
  • Remote Sensors with Central Control
  • Humidity, Temperature, Volitile Gases, Motion, Sound, Salinity, Voltage & ...

    Operating Principles:

    The Solar Fire Drum is designed to spray a long-term fire retardant mixture on the trees and perimeter of your property. The battery powers a 12v 60psi demand pump that can send the mixture 40' feet up a tree. The Solar Fire Drum holds 55 gallons of water the two 5 gallon PHOS-CHeK liquid concentrate. It will run for 1 hour of continuous pumping, longer with more liquids. ANYWHERE and off-the-grid.

    The Solar Fire Drum has an integrated 55 watt solar electric PV panel and a waterproof charge controller to keep the battery float charged.

    Additional drums of water and concentrate can be added in series for longer coverage.

    ABC Solar has long experience with solar water pumping and can size from 1 gallon per minute to hundreds of gallons per minute at tall heights.

    1x 55 Gallon Drum of PHOS-CHeK Liquid Concentrate to your hot tub for 355 gallons of fire retardant material. The hot tub pump is configured to run from batteries and valved to run large volume and more sprinklers at your property.

    1x 260 Gallon Tote of PHOS-CHeK Liquid Concentrate to your swimming pool for over 10,000 gallons of fire retardant to spay on your property with battery water pumps that are recharged with solar.

    The PHOS-CHeK and water mixture will stay on the plants until it rains or you rinse it off. It then becomes fertilizer and does not harm your yard. I like that part a bunch and it is environmentally friendly.
