The Ultra-Wide Turbojet 25mm handline nozzles from AKRON BRASS boast a hard-hitting straight stream with the protection of nearly 180 degrees of ultra-wide fog pattern. The selectable litreage nozzle goes far beyond the traditional 120 degree fog pattern and is claimed to excel at fighting compartment fires such as in apartments, hotels, office buildings and aboard ships.
Akron Brass points out that fighting fires often requires the ability to attack with a straight stream, to cool gases with a 30 degree cone setting, and protect with the ultra-wide pattern setting. The nozzle offers all three settings with a turn of the pattern control bumper. The ultra-wide fog pattern measures about five metres in diameter creating a large wall of protection for the firefighter.
The Ultra-wide nozzle is lightweight, conforms to SOLAS and MED standards, and carries a ten year warranty. The bumper pattern control has a raised lug and tactile detent to help locate the narrow fog pattern, while the flush setting on the nozzle allows the firefighter to flush any debris that may block the stream or create disturbances in the stream without shutting down the water supply.
The Ultra-Wide Turbojet was designed with close communication to Britain’s Royal Navy. The nozzle needed to have the capability of sealing a door or hatch, and this was achieved by creating the ultra-wide pattern setting. The nozzle was tested against fireballs at various pressures and protection was achieved using the ultra-wide setting. Many times the ships’ pressures vary and the nozzle was required to be suitable for both low and high pressures.
