LOW PRESSURE NOZZLES
Todays fire fighters often look for ways to reduce fatigue. One way is to use Low Pressure Nozzles. Low Pressure Nozzles require less nozzle pressure, thus reducing the effort required to either maintain or advance a line. Reduced nozzle pressure causes a reduction in reaction force, thus making the handline easier to handle and maneuver. See pages 4 thru 13 for further information on all TurboJet, SaberJet and Assault Nozzles.
LOW PRESSURE ASSAULT™ NOZZLES
The Assault Nozzle utilizes modern nozzle technology to provide exceptional stream performance over a wide range of flows and pressures. When specified, Assault Nozzles can be factory set to flow at lower pressures.
LOW PRESSURE SABERJET™ NOZZLES
The SaberJet Nozzle is designed to provide both solid bore and fog streams, at pressures as low as 50 psi. See page 102 for SaberJet flow data.
LOW PRESSURE TURBOJET® NOZZLES
Low Pressure TurboJets are engineered to provide quality streams over a wide range of flows. The Low Pressure TurboJet incorporates all the great features of the standard TurboJet but factory set at 75 psi. See page 100 for TurboJet flow data.
OPERATING NOZZLES AT LOWER PRESSURE
100 psi inlet pressure is an industry standard applied to most fog nozzles, including the standard TurboJet, SaberJet and Assault. However, the engineering behind these nozzles allow them to produce quality fog and straight streams at pressures below 100 psi. When operating a nozzle at reduced inlet pressure, there will be a corresponding reduction in flow, reach and reaction force.
It is not recommended to operate any combination fog/straight stream nozzle at pressures below 50 psi.
