In the past year, PROTEC has introduced no fewer than five nozzles, a monitor and a multi-purpose hose wye (Y). The new nozzles are: the Protek Style 366-F low pressure selectable litreage nozzle; the Protek Style 326 new generation multi-mode nozzle; the Protek Style 355 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle; the Protek Style 356 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle; and the Protek Style 357 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle. The new monitor is the Protek Style 620 dual-purpose ground monitor, and the multi-purpose hose wye is the Protek Style 542.
The Protek Style 366-F low pressure selectable litreage nozzle has five flow rates up to 570 litres-a-minute at 5 bar – the flow rate settings being 110, 230, 360, 470 and 570 litres-a-minute. It is claimed to effectively minimise pressure on pumps and firefighter fatigue while delivering more water, with a 120 degree turn of the moulded bumper to switch from jet stream to fog pattern. Improved positivity of the flow selection ring ensures optimal stream performance. The Protek Style 326 new generation multi-mode nozzle boasts a combination pattern nozzle with combined selectable, automatic and low pressure modes, slide-valve design that reduces turbulence and controls flow rate while preserving quality stream, and again, an efficient 120 degree turn of the moulded bumper to change from jet stream to fog pattern.
The Protek Style 355 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle also features five flow rates up to 570 litres-a-minute at 5 bar– this time with the settings being 115,230, 360, 475 and 570 litres-a-minute. It incorporates a shock absorber in the bumper for greater resilience and a durable handle design for quick open/close operation. The Protek Style 356 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle with flow rate setting that are identical to the Protek Style 355, while the new and the Protek Style 357 low pressure selectable litreage nozzle has flow rate settings of flow rate settings of 230, 360,475, 570 and 750 litres-a-minute at 5 bar.
The new Protek Style 620 dual-purpose ground monitor has applications both as a portable monitor or a deck gun with a flow rate up to 3030 litres-a-minute. It features a 75mm waterway with cast vane, full 180 degree rotation and vertical travel of 65 degrees – from 75 degrees to 10 degrees above with inbuilt safety stops – and dual integrated ball shut-off that enables sealing and gating in either monitor inlet for enhanced control and flexibility. The Protek Style 542 multi-purpose hose wye enables two hose lines to be combined into one, or divides a single flow into two-way discharge.
