Double Stage, High Performance

The rugged design and flat output characteristic at a high level of efficiency are the definitive characteristics of this 1850 gpm pump. This pump has convinced fire services worldwide and epitomizes the quality for which ROSENBAUER is famous. The R600 is the preferred choice for airport rescue firefighting vehicles.

The R600 is designed for durable performance.
The stainless steel pump shaft is borne by triple roller bearings. The main bearings run in an oil bath in the gear box and are thus maintenance-free.
A wear-free mechanical shaft seal keeps the system tight. Thanks to specially selected materials for the mechanical shaft seal, dry or emergency running is supported.


Automatic Around-the-Pump Foam Proportioning System "RVMA500"

A fully mechanical, automatic around-the-pump foam proportioning system is available for the R600. The system is designed to suit the pump's output characteristic and is embedded in the pump.


Water metering valves are actuated in direct proportion to the water flow rate. The actuation is conveyed mechanically and used to open and close the foam proportioning valve. The current proportioning rate is visualized by means of a cam disk. A maximum of 3 proportioning rates is supported.

  • Perfectly geared for the R600
  • Excellent foam compound suction capacity
  • Completely maintenance-free
  • Fully mechanical proportioning system
  • Up to 3 different proportioning rates
  • Proportioning rate does not depend on pump capacity or pressure
The main field of deployment for the RVMA500 is thus airport, industrial and tanker vehicles, as well as firefighting vessels and stationary equipment.
