FIGURE 2

The charts in section 8.0 of this document give specifi c examples of maximum fl ow rates for particular situations. Friction losses may vary due to differences in hose construction resulting in fl ows different than those shown. For situations or lengths of hose not listed on the chart, approximate fl ows can be calculated using conventional hydraulics.

DANGER

An inadequate supply of nozzle pressure and/or fl ow will cause an ineffective stream and can result in injury, death or loss of property. See fl ow chart in section 8.0 or call 800-348-2686 for assistance.

WARNING

Failure to restrain nozzle reaction can cause fi refi ghter 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 fl ushing 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 fl owing 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

Specifi c 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 fl ow positions. These detent positions allow the nozzle operator to regulate the fl ow 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 SHUTTOFF

On models that use a twist fl ow 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 fl ow, the stream should be “trimmed” after changing the fl ow to obtain the straightest and farthest reaching stream. To properly trim a stream, fi rst 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 fl ow. To remove this trapped debris the nozzle can be fl ushed as follows; while still fl owing water, turn the SHAPER counterclockwise past the full fog position (increased resistance will be felt on the SHAPER as the nozzle goes into fl ush). This will open the nozzle allowing debris to pass through. Rotate the

SHAPER clockwise and out of fl ush to continue normal operation. During fl ush 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 fl ush position to retain control of the nozzle.

FIGURE 3 - GASKET GRABBER

WARNING

Large amounts of debris can reduce the fl ow of the nozzle resulting in an ineffective fl ow. 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 fi re. Among the most important is delivering water at a fl ow rate suffi cient to absorb heat faster than it is being generated. The fl ow 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:

For additional information on calculating specifi c hose layouts, consult an appropriate fi re 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

WARNING

CAUTION

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 equipment • Distance from the nozzle to the line or equipment

Size of the stream • Whether the stream is solid or broken • Purity of the water

2

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.

The nozzle may become damaged if allowed to freeze while containing water. Always drain after use to avoid damage and possible loss of use.

CAUTION

6.0 FIELD INSPECTION

1 Electrostatic Hazards of Foam Blanketing Operations by Peter Howels. Industrial Fire Safety July/August 1993

2 The Fire Fighter and Electrical Equipment, The University of Michigan Extension Service, Fourth Printing 1983. Page 47.

TFT’s ULTIMATIC, MID-MATIC and HANDLINE are designed and manufactured to be damage resistant and require minimal maintenance. However, as the primary fi re fi ghting tools upon which your life depends, they should be treated accordingly.

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 fl ow.

5) “OFF” position does fully shut off and fl ow is stopped.

6) Nozzle fl ow 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 fl ush and out of fl ush with normal fl ow 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.
