Minimize effort, maximize output
The inception of Max Flow Systems began with a series of discussions with fire departments across the country about the need for mobile pump testing services. At that time, I was providing pump ops training with a mobile simulator that could easily be transformed into a mobile pump testing unit with only a few modifications. In 2007, my company, Lonestar Fire Specialities, became the first trailered mobile pump testing company in Texas and grew to service more than 450 trucks annually.
Over the years, the experience gained from running thousands of pump tests prompted me to design a system that focuses on speed, accuracy, simplicity, and redundancy. In 2012, I designed and built the Ultimate Draft System while also starting the process to patent the technology that makes this product unique. This incredible machine has tested over 2,800 pumps and flowed 154 million gallons of water without one mechanical hiccup. The Ultimate Draft System is unlike any other pump testing machine on the market today.
The primary advantages that we have over our competitors include reducing pump test time to 80 minutes per truck, detecting issues with exceptional accuracy, providing a computer generated report immediately, testing that requires only one operator, the ability to create an infinite amount of workload on the pump thus, replicating old-school testing from a below ground pit and creating the same pump test conditions year after year.
Over my tenure in this field, I have silenced many critics and gained the support of those who did not believe a ‘true’ pump test could be accomplished from a trailered system. We would like the opportunity to show you how our advanced technology exceeds the required NFPA standards and allows the system to be operated wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone up to 100 feet away.
The patent for the process and design of the Ultimate Draft System was approved in July 2017. It is now time for us to unveil this amazing product and we invite you to have a glimpse into the future of this growing industry.
