TFT release new Working Fire Nozzle
June 17, 2020 By FFIC Staff
The new TFT Working Fire nozzle is ideal when you need maximum flows for a “working fire.” For everyday use, it is a 150 gpm at 75 PSI Fixed GPM Nozzle, but when you need even more GPM, the nozzle’s exclusive pressure relief system dramatically limits nozzle reaction.
At low flows, just like other fixed GPM nozzles, it is clear from the stream quality that optimum flow has not yet been reached. When you achieve the 150gpm rate, the nozzle flows great, and there is about 65lbs of nozzle reaction force. However, when you need a lot more GPM, that is where the Working Fire excels. By integrating TFT’s exclusive pressure relief, a 33 per cent increase in flow rates only yields a 33 per cent increase in reaction force. Compare that to a traditional fixed nozzle, which increases 78 per cent. With the Working Fire nozzle, TFT is able to deliver high GPM (200 gpm) with about 30lbs less reaction force than other nozzles.
The Working Fire is available in a break-apart or integrated, stainless steel ball valve configuration. Pistol grips, bail handles, and stream shaper are available in colors and spinning teeth are an option. The nozzle has a rugged, black hard coat finish with a black reflective Scotchlite trim. There is a tactile indicator and detent for straight stream that prevents unintended rotation into other streams.
Compare this nozzle head to head against any other fixed flow nozzle on the market and the benefits will be obvious. Get more information or arrange a demonstration by visiting: theworkingfire.com
