Fire Ceptor - "The Portable Dry Hydrant"

Flexibility of drafting locations while keeping Pumps Safe

A Drafting Phenomenon for Rural & Wildland water sources.

Even those considered unsafe – shallow, weeds, sand, gravel, etc.

  • BearsPaw ProtectaPump’s Fire Ceptor is a (Shallow Water – 6″- 12″ minimum) Suction Separator for fire pumps that instantly separates solids from liquids to avoid internal pump damage.
  • How does this New Portable Dry Hydrant work in the Shallows? During the suction process, sediment, sand, etc. are instantly separated from the water at source, allowing clean water to flow to the pump while returning the sediment, sand, etc. to nature.
  • Higher flows – the Fire Ceptor’s technology is less restrictive than suction strainers, so pumps do not have to work as hard to produce required flows.
  • No flotation or suspension is required as the Separator is designed to rest on the bottom in gravel & sand while functioning at capacity and protecting the pump.
  • This level of Advanced Pump Protection is only possible with Suction Separator technology.
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee gives you the confidence to try it without hesitation.

The Fire Ceptor – an easier and safer Rural & Wildland drafting experience. Draft at the shoreline in 6-12″ of water vs. having to locate deep water or avoid weeds.

Thornhill Fire Chief shares his experience using the Fire Ceptor

“I shot a few short videos with the Fire Ceptor in the sand and weeds with some vegetation going through the pump with no sand, then we connected the low level open strainer and ran that for only 10-20 seconds to protect our pump, there was lots of sand.

I didn’t need to sell the appliance to the membership. They were very impressed as we could never draft in the location before for obvious reasons, and we now don’t need to be worried where we draft from.”

Q & A

The traditional use of suction ‘strainers’ for ‘pump protection’ has resulted in millions of dollars wasted for unnecessary pump repair and destruction. Typical comments we have heard are “it is simply a cost of doing business” or “we have always done it this way”. Good news, we now have an alternative to stop the damage from occurring to pumps – it’s called Fire Ceptor – a ‘Suction Separator’.

The various models of the Fire Ceptor Series utilize the advanced ‘Separator technology’, which is vastly superior than the ‘old strainer technology’. When using the Fire Ceptor, you can feel totally confident about Pump Protection while drafting in shallow water with depths of only 6-12 inches. The Suction Nozzle operates on the bottom in sand, gravel, dirt, or a combination of these while it instantly separates the solids from the water and allows clean water only to flow through to the pumps, hoses and fittings. This process eliminates excessive wear or serious damage to pumps, that normally results in down time with costly repairs or replacement. The bottom line is that the Separator’s level of protection for pumps is revolutionary when compared to the ineffectiveness of a ‘Strainer’.
