FIGURE 2
The charts in section 9.0 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
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 9.0 or call 800-348-2686 for
assistance.
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.
WARNING
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.
CAUTION
Fire streams are capable of injury and damage. Do not direct water stream to cause injury or
damage to persons or property.

3.1 REACH AND TRAJECTORY
Specific data is published in technical documents LTT-140 and LTT-145 entitled Reach & Trajectory Data of Hand Held Nozzles.
3.2 USE WITH SALT WATER
Use with salt water 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.
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.
4.1.2 TWIST SHUTOFF
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. Using a nozzle without a
shutoff is an unsafe practice and should never be done.
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
FIGURE 3 - GASKET GRABBER
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 9.0. It can also be calculated using a hydraulic equation such
as:
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 = NP + FL + DL + EL
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
Water is a conductor of electricity. Application of water solutions on high voltage equipment
can cause injury or death by electrocution. The amount of current that may be carried back
to the nozzle will depend on the following factors:
Voltage of the line or equipment1 • Distance from the nozzle to the line or equipment
• Size of the stream • Whether the stream is solid or broken
• Purity of the water2
WARNING
Do not couple aluminum to brass. Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic
corrosion that can result in inability to unscrew threads or complete loss of thread
engagement.
CAUTION
The nozzle may become damaged if allowed to freeze while containing water. Always drain
after use to avoid damage and possible loss of use.

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.

10.0 INSPECTION CHECKLIST
Nozzle must be inspected for proper operation and function according to this checklist before each use.
Check that:
1) There is no obvious damage such as missing, broken or loose parts, damaged labels etc.
2) Gasket grabber is free of debris.
3) Coupling is tight and leak free.
4) Valve operates freely through full range and regulates flow.
5) “OFF” position does fully shut off and flow is stopped.
6) Nozzle flow is adequate as indicated by pump pressure and nozzle reaction.
7) Shaper turns freely and adjusts pattern through full range.
8) Shaper turns into full flush and out of flush with normal flow and pressure restored.
WARNING
Any Ultimatic, Mid-Matic or Handline nozzle failing any part of the inspection checklist is unsafe
and must have the problem corrected before use. Operating a nozzle that fails any of the above
inspections is a misuse of this equipment.
