Task Force Tips (TFT) released two new master stream nozzles at this year’s FDIC International. The VORTEX 2 and 2 ER ( Electric Remote) big water nozzles offer multiple options and superior stream and flows. Master stream nozzles Task Force Tips’ latest VORTEX 2 and 2 ER (electric remote) are designed for flows up to 1250gpm (4500 l/min) for water or firefighting foam solutions. The VORTEX is designed to be installed behind stacked tip or smooth bore nozzles and offers increased flexibility. Users get the benefit of either a straight stream or a dispersed pattern with virtually no loss of flow in either selection. The VORTEX offers a full range of flows because it is not limited to a single smooth bore size In addition, the VORTEX offers a full range of flows because it is not limited to a single smooth bore size. The new nozzle is also lighter and more compact and affordable than competitors’ models. TFT Tsunami industrial monitor The new Master Stream 4000 ER is one of three high performance big water nozzle options for the TFT Tsunami, Task Force Tips’ largest high volume industrial monitor. Previously released nozzle options include stacked tips or tips with the 6” VORTEX offering a dispersed pattern. The Master Stream 4000 ER brings straight stream and true fog pattern capability. It is available in an automatic version, 600 to 4000 gpm (2400 to 16000 l/min), or a selectable version, 2000 and 4000 gpm (8000 and 16000 l/min) at 100 psi (7 bar). Firefighters safety Task Force Tips saves lives and protects property by designing and manufacturing innovative tools that exceed the expectations of those that risk their lives to save others, including firefighters and emergency services personnel.
A compact and affordable solution with integrated Bluetooth, TFT’s SHO-FLOW 1 Flow Meter series provides accurate, real time information for use in testing, training and firefighting operations about water flow rates on a single hose line. When installed, the device generates power using water flow to run itself, so no batteries are needed to operate! Power is harvested from an internal moving turbine and will transmit flow rates to any smart device via Bluetooth. The SHO-FLOW is simple, reliable and easy to use. The new SHO-FLOW 1 is 1.5” (38mm), and a 2.5” (63mm) version will be released later this year. SHO-FLOW 1 Flow Meter Series The SHO-FLOW 1 is substantially more compact than competitive models, coming in at only 6.1” (155mm) in length and weighing only 2.6 lbs (1.2kg). It requires no batteries and comes factory calibrated. Flow rates can be viewed on any Android or Apple smart device via TFT’s free app, which is available on Google Play and the Apple App Store. The flow meter can be easily connected in line with any size hose that has 1.5” couplings. Since flow readings are transmitted to a linked smart device, the unit is extraordinarily rugged and convenient Since flow readings are transmitted to a linked smart device, the unit is extraordinarily rugged and convenient. There is no worry about display screens being damaged in extreme fire service use, no batteries to monitor for operation, and you don’t need to be next to the unit to obtain flow information. Accurate with minimum friction loss The SHO-FLOW 1 is accurate with minimal friction loss and can be used with water or a water/foam mix. Its flow range is 50 – 300 gpm (200 – 1150 l/min) with a maximum operating pressure of 300psi. Inlet/outlets are available in NH, NPSH and BSP styles. The SHO-FLOW 1 has an introductory list price of US$ 995.00 USD and is available for order through TFT distributors worldwide.
TFT’s new H2knOw is a series of videos designed to teach the fundamentals of firefighting water flow. The series explores important topics and delivers fact-based results that are measurable and grounded in physics, not opinion. Flow test device with PLC The series utilizes a flow test device (FTD) with a programmable logic controller or PLC. With this device, viewers can see information like flow pressures and nozzle reactions from the other parts of the system and how they react when circumstances change. The H2knOW series is about helping firefighters with information. Facts that allow them to do more without increasing the risk. Firefighting is tough, so it’s important to have the right tools and to know what will happen as conditions change. The first series is currently on-line now with videos that cover “How a Nozzle Works.”
