FIGURE 2
The charts in section 8.0 of this document give specific examples of maximum flow rates for particular situations. Friction
losses may vary due to differences in hose construction resulting in flows different than those shown. For situations or
lengths of hose not listed on the chart, approximate flows can be calculated using conventional hydraulics.
DANGER
CAUTION
WARNING
WARNING
An inadequate supply of nozzle pressure and/or flow will cause an
ineffective stream and can result in injury, death or loss of property. See
flow chart in section 8.0 or call 800-348-2686 for assistance.
Fire streams are capable of injury and damage. Do not direct water stream
to cause injury or damage to persons or property.
Failure to restrain nozzle reaction can cause firefighter injury from loss of
footing and/or stream protection. Nozzle reaction will vary as supply
conditions change: such as opening or closing other nozzles, hose line
kinks, changes in pump settings, etc. Changes in spray pattern or flushing
will also affect nozzle reaction. The nozzle operator must always be
positioned to restrain the nozzle reaction in the event of those changes.
Injury from whipping can occur. If nozzle gets out of control or away from
operator, retreat from nozzle immediately. Do not attempt to regain control
of nozzle while flowing water.
4.0 NOZZLE CONTROLS
4.1 FLOW CONTROL
4.1.1 LEVER TYPE FLOW CONTROL
On models that use a lever type valve handle, the nozzle is shut off when the handle is fully forward. The valve handle has
six detent flow positions. These detent positions allow the nozzle operator to regulate the flow of the nozzle depending on
the need or what can be safely and effectively handled. TFT recommends the use of a pistol grip for easier handling. For
additional stress reduction, a hose rope or strap may also be used. This permits more effective use and ease of
advancement, while minimizing strain and fatigue.

LIN-030 July 16, 2007 Rev 09
4.1.2 TWIST SHUTTOFF
On models that use a twist flow control. The valve is opened or
closed by rotating the valve ring. Rotating the ring clockwise (as
seen from the operating position behind the nozzle) closes the
valve, while counterclockwise rotation opens it. Detents are
provided at four intermediate positions and the position of the
valve is shown by the exposed valve position label.
4.1.3 TIP ONLY NOZZLES
Tip only nozzles have NO shut off valve contained within the
nozzle and MUST be used with a separate ball valve attached to
the nozzle.
4.2 PATTERN AND FLUSH CONTROL
4.2.1 PATTERN CONTROL
TFT's ULTIMATIC, MID-MATIC and HANDLINE have full pattern control from straight stream to wide fog. Turning the
STREAM SHAPER clockwise (as seen from the operating position behind the nozzle) moves the SHAPER to the straight
stream position. Turning the SHAPER counterclockwise will result in an increasingly wider pattern.
Since the stream trim point varies with the flow, the stream should be "trimmed" after changing the flow to obtain the
straightest and farthest reaching stream. To properly trim a stream, first open the pattern to a narrow fog. Then close the
stream to parallel to give maximum reach. NOTE: Turning the shaper further forward will cause stream crossover
and reduce the effective reach of the nozzle.
The nozzle reaction is greatest when the shaper is in the straight stream position. The nozzle operator must be prepared
for a change in reaction as the pattern is changed.
4.2.2 FLUSH CONTROL
Small debris passes through the gasket grabber and may get caught inside the nozzle. This trapped material will cause
poor stream quality, shortened reach and reduced flow. To remove this trapped debris the nozzle can be flushed as
follows; while still flowing water, turn the SHAPER counterclockwise past the full fog position (increased resistance will be
felt on the SHAPER as the nozzle goes into flush). This will open the nozzle allowing debris to pass through. Rotate the
SHAPER clockwise and out of flush to continue normal operation. During flush the nozzle reaction will decrease as the
pattern becomes wider and the pressure drops. The nozzle operator must be prepared for an increase of nozzle reaction
when returning the nozzle from the flush position to retain control of the nozzle.
WARNING
Large amounts of debris can reduce
the flow of the nozzle resulting in an
ineffective flow. In the event of a
blockage it may be necessary to
retreat to a safe area, uncouple
nozzle and remove debris.

5.0 USE OF ULTIMATIC, MID-MATIC and HANDLINE NOZZLES
IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL FIRE DEPARTMENT OR AGENCY TO DETERMINE PHYSICAL
CAPABILITIES AND SUITABILITY FOR AN INDIVIDUAL'S USE OF THIS EQUIPMENT.
Many factors contribute to the extinguishment of a fire. Among the most important is delivering water at a flow rate
sufficient to absorb heat faster than it is being generated. The flow rate depends largely on the pump discharge pressure
and hose friction loss. The pump discharge pressure may be found by use of the chart in section 8.0. It can also be
calculated using a hydraulic equation such as:
PDP = NP+FL+DL+EL
For additional information on calculating specific hose
layouts, consult an appropriate fire service training manual, A
Guide to Automatic Nozzles, or call TFT's "Hydraulics Hotline"
at 800-348-2686.
PDP = Pump discharge pressure in PSI
NP = Nozzle pressure in PSI
FL = Hose friction loss in PSI
DL = Device loss in PSI
EL = Elevation loss in PSI
6.0 FIELD INSPECTION
TFT's ULTIMATIC, MID-MATIC and HANDLINE are designed and manufactured to be damage resistant and require
minimal maintenance. However, as the primary fire fighting tools upon which your life depends, they should be treated
accordingly.
Use with saltwater is permissible provided nozzle is thoroughly cleaned with fresh water after each use. The service life of
the nozzle may be shortened due to the effects of corrosion and is not covered under warranty.
WARNING
Nozzle must be inspected for proper operation and function according to
inspection checklist on last page before each use. Any nozzle that fails
inspection is dangerous to use and must be repaired before using.
Performance tests shall be conducted on the Ultimatic, Mid-Matic and Handline nozzle after a repair, or anytime a
problem is reported to verify operation in accordance with TFT test procedures. Consult factory for the procedure that
corresponds to the model and serial number of the nozzle. Any equipment which fails the related test criteria should be
removed from service immediately. Troubleshooting guides are available with each test procedure or equipment can be
returned to the factory for service and testing.
Factory service is available with repair time seldom exceeding one day in our facility. Factory serviced nozzles are
repaired by experienced technicians to original specifications, fully tested and promptly returned. Any returns should
include a note as to the nature of the problem, who to reach in case of questions and if a repair estimate is required.
Repair parts and service procedures are available for those wishing to perform their own repairs. Task Force Tips
assumes no liability for damage to equipment or injury to personnel that is a result of user service.

Ultimatic 125 Service Procedure
Mid-Matic & Mid-Force Service Procedure
Handline Service Procedure
Handline & Dual-Force Service Procedure
Any alterations to the nozzle and its markings could diminish safety and
constitutes a misuse of this product.
All Task Force Tip nozzles are factory lubricated with high quality silicone grease. This lubricant has excellent washout
resistance and long term performance. If your department has unusually hard or sandy water, the moving parts may be
affected. Foam agents and water additives contain soaps and chemicals that may break down the factory lubrication.
The moving parts of the nozzle should be checked on a regular basis for smooth and free operation, and signs of
damage. IF THE NOZZLE IS OPERATING CORRECTLY, THEN NO ADDITIONAL LUBRICATION IS NEEDED. Any
nozzle that is not operating correctly should be immediately removed from service and the problem corrected.
