Dry Chemical Systems

Specific to dry chemical systems, Burner provides internal technology unique from other systems on the market. A patented expulsion system allows each hose reel to obtain the chemical through independent discharge tubes, affording a constant discharge rate on demand. With a plurality of discharge tubes individually controlled, many optional installations with isolated discharges are possible. With individual manual control discharge valves to each hose reel on the skid unit, either hose reel can be actuated without charging the hose reel not in use. Either hose reel located in a remote location can be actuated independently from the other remote reel and the remaining reels on the skid.
