Advanced Technology

Patented, proven and fire chief approved, FireCatt’s advanced technology has revolutionized fire equipment testing.

While competitors are still manually turning dials and reading gauges, trained FireCatt technicians are in state-of-the-art Mobile Test Labs using the only computerized, automated and objective hose testing technology in the nation.

For you, that translates to the most reliable, safest testing procedures in the industry that produce the most accurate, scientific results designed to meet NFPA standards.

FireCatt’s technology portfolio includes:

Custom-Developed Software

Written specifically to meet the standards of NFPA 1962 on every test, FireCatt’s software controls the variable speed pump and the process to ensure accurate, data-driven, valid results are produced for each and every test sequence.

Mobile Test Labs

FireCatt’s mobile testing laboratories eliminate opportunity for human error and miscalculations by using computers to generate valid, repeatable scientific results. No stopwatches, bouncing needle gauges or risky judgment calls.

Automated Pressure Release

The FireCatt automated pressure release system makes testing safer by eliminating the dangerous practice of firefighters approaching hoses under dangerously high pressure and manually releasing the pressure. If a hose fails, the computerized system immediately cuts off the water flow in less than a second and eliminates hose whip, thus reducing potential damage and personal injury.

Digital Pressure Transducers

During the entire length of the testing process, digital pressure transducers electronically capture results several times per second, giving you the most accurate, consistent and repeatable readouts possible. These results are monitored by the computer, which ultimately passes or fails hoses tested.

Barcoding System

FireCatt’s unique barcoding system helps you organize your inventory like never before. Our electronic inventory allows you 24/7 access to your inventory so you can track the age and condition of your hoses over time. See exactly when every hose was tested and the reasons for all your hose failures.

Computerized “Hose Boosting”

The FireCatt system controls pressurization so as not to exceed 15 psi per second as the NFPA 1962 standard prescribes, allowing for longer life of hoses due to a smooth expansion of the jacket. After reaching pressure, the system stabilizes the pressure for no less than one minute per 100’ of hose per outlet, then boosts the pressure until it has stabilized at the respective test pressure level — holding it at that level for three minutes. If the computer fails any section of the hose, the failed section is removed and the pressurization process begins again. This creates efficiency.

The crew that came to Douglas County did a really great job and worked as a team. They were on the job on time and had our hose tested in a timely manner. These past years of having your company come in and do the testing for us is the only way to go and is sure painless on our part. Please thank them for a job well done and look forward to next year.

Chief Riley

We think the testing process, with your company, was awesome. The crew that came to Hartford Township was great to work with, and are exceptional workers. We will defiantly pass on to other Departments, what a great experience it was to use your company to do our hose testing, and we look forward to working with you for years to come. Thank you.

Captain Wilson

I would highly recommend your services to anyone that is on the fence on contracting these services out. The only issue was I wish I would have done this years ago.

Sean Okerlund – Fire Chief, Cambridge Fire Department

I understand you and your staff were able to test our hose successfully even in far less-than-desirable conditions. I appreciate the dedication of your employees in doing so. We are much appreciative of your efforts and look forward to working with you again next year.

Chief Brumfield

I just wanted to send a thank you to you guys. It was a long day of testing 12,000 feet of hose, and I have to say the guys you sent did an awesome job. They were very easy to work with and they worked their tails off! It was a pleasure working with FireCatt this year. I look forward to working with you in the future.


We are grateful you built the best technology for testing, because at the end of the day, if the hose fails, nothing else matters.

Chief Barnwell, Mackinac Island

It went great, the guys got a few sprinkles but got it all done in one day. Fabulous group to work with. It is always nice that the crew remembers the trucks from last time and put it all away the way they found it. Thanks again for a good job.
