Paratech’s Powered Impact Tools (PIT) are designed for forcible entry during fire fighting and rescue operations. They are used for cutting metal and composites, breaking masonry walls, penetrating concrete floors, forcible entry and digging during tunneling operations. Paratech’s PITs consume air only on the power stroke. This unique, patented design provides a pneumatic impact and penetrating device with an adjustable power output and very low air consumption.
ARFF Grab and Go Kit
The Pakhammer SC (Self Contained) is designed to exceed current U.S. Air Force requirements for an aircraft skin penetrator. It is an ideal crash rescue tool. Carrying its own limited air supply, a firefighter can rapidly insert several penetrator/applicator nozzles depending on the location and spread of fire or fuel. These penetrator/ applicator nozzles will flow water, AFFF solutions and Halon. When the self contained air supply is exhausted the air supply assembly can be quickly detached in favor of another air source. The firefighter now has the full benefit of a standard Pakhammer to continue rescue operations.
A 1000–1100 high impact blows per minute, 11 pound impact tool that dramatically increases the range of forcible entry and rescue work initial responding units can handle without calling up heavy equipment. The Pakhammer is the only pneumatic impact tool of its size that is designed to operate from portable air cylinders. It is an ideal tool for bus and train rescue, high rise work, collapse rescue or any situation that requires a powerful impact tool that operates from a limited air supply.
This multipurpose kit is designed to handle numerous functions in ARFF. Includes a cutting bit designed to cut aircraft windshields and canopies, a cutting bit to cut sheet metal, a plug driver bit and neoprene plugs for leak sealing, piercing nozzle that can penetrate the GLARE composite skin as well as, CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic).
