KJet Bucket Refill Pump

The KJet series helicopter bucket refill system equals simplified, more reliable, and faster filling. Kawak’s new line of KJet series products for bottom-filling buckets can fill to capacity in streams, ponds, and tanks as shallow as 16”, thus allowing more flexibility in dip sites and with a fill rate that reduces cycle times. The refill system is a derivative of Kawak’s proven refill pump technology that is used in fixed tank applications around the world.

This new KJet line of products provides operators with a high-volume, lightweight powered fill option that can be configured with 28vdc, 400hz, or hydraulic power options.  The KJet is built to withstand the toughest conditions, with a rugged, corrosion-resistant construction that is capable of withstanding years of abuse in harsh environments with minimal maintenance.

With its exceptional performance, durability, and versatility, the KJet is the ideal choice for helicopter firefighting operators who need a reliable, high-performance pump to refill their fire fighting buckets quickly and efficiently.
