When considering innovative manufacturing practices, BME is constantly updating to improve the functionality and safety of our wildland apparatus. As a wildland manufacturer of some of the toughest fire apparatus, we make sure that every part of our apparatus is durable and can last in the harsh environments that wildland firefighters face. At BME, we ensure that durability, serviceability, and longevity are our top priorities when building and designing our stainless steel plumbing.
Why using Stainless Steel Plumbing is Important?
All our plumbing is stainless steel. We made the stainless steel part of the BME difference because it lasts longer, functions better, and is of higher quality.
Our stainless steel plumbing is throughout the entire plumbing system. To ensure that your apparatuses’ plumbing is durable, we use the tig welding technique by walking the cup, which is like weaving the weld. This technique provides a firm weld and allows us to design the interior of our pump houses to where we can utilize space more efficiently and effectively, which helps better serviceability.
We emphasize the importance of serviceability. Especially during wildfire season, BME apparatus has to be quick and easy to service to get back to work. One of the modifications that our team came up with is the ability to service your engine efficiently. We implemented Vic’s fittings which make for easy access to our plumbing. Your BME pump system is not only easy to access and service but can be fixed in a Walmart parking lot.
We want to make sure that your investment in our apparatus is worth every penny. We offer a 10-year warranty for our apparatus, but as we continue to innovate, we plan to extend our warranty up to 20 years.
Our wildland fire trucks’ durability, serviceability, and longevity is shown in our stainless steel plumbing. Each modification made to our apparatus helps it last longer and withstand the harsh conditions on the fireline. That’s the BME difference.
