“UL Listed – SHOOTFIRE – 1000/500” Self Inducting Aqua Foam Nozzle 1000/500 Variable Flow Monitor Fixed at 1000/500 GPM

The manually operated self-inducting non-aspirating Foam Monitor fully made of Stainless Steel, capable of discharging 1000 / 500 US GPM (3785/1893 LPM) at 100 psi inlet pressure over a range of 60 to 70 meters in horizontal direction and 30 to 35 meters in vertical direction. The Foam Monitor has adjustable flow discharge capacity of 2000 US GPM / 1000 US GPM in single Nozzle. Foam monitors are very compact in construction and gives good flexibility of the operation while fighting with fire.

Foam proportioning 3 % is done with help of Foam Inductor placed within the Nozzle. The induction of foam for the variable flow of 1000 & 500 GPM is selected with the help of Foam control Valve placed on the nozzle. Foam Monitor has facility for converting Water / Foam jet to fog and vice-versa very quickly and easily, even during continuous operation.

The Foam Monitor is provided with two numbers of self-locking swivel gear bearing for rotation in horizontal and vertical direction through hand wheel operation even under high operating pressures. A single fire fighter can manually operate the Foam Monitor with large flow & long-range capability. The monitor assembly is designed to withstand the nozzle reaction force experienced during the operation of jet / fog. The Monitor with variable discharge capacity of 1000 GPM & 500 GPM is approved and Listed by UL (USA).


  • Certified and Approved by (UL) Underwriters Laboratory USA for use with variable flow.
  • High Discharge capacity of 1000 & 500 US GPM (3785 / 1893 LPM) with single nozzle at 100 psi inlet pressure.
