“UL Listed SHOOTFIRE – 500” Aqua Foam Nozzle Self-Inducting Type Regular Monitor

The manually operated Self-inducting non-aspirating Foam Monitor made of Stainless, capable of discharging 500 US GPM (1893 LPM) at 100 psi (7 bar) inlet pressure over a range of 50 meter in horizontal direction. Foam proportioning 3 % is done with help of Foam Inductor placed within the Nozzle. The Foam Monitor has facility for converting Water/Foam jet to fog and vice-versa very quickly and easily, even during continuous operation.

Foam Monitor is provided with self-locking swivel gear bearing for smooth 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 capacity, long-range capability. The monitor assembly is designed to withstand the nozzle reaction force experienced du ring the operation of jet/ fog.

  • Discharge Capacity of 500 US GPM (1893 LPM) at 100 Psi (7 bar) inlet pressure.
  • Excellent Horizontal throw of 50 meter & above.
  • Excellent Fog Jet throw of 15 meter & above.
  • Low Expansion, so less loss of foam due to breakage and thermal updraft and more cooling effect on burning surface.
  • Quick change over from jet to fog or spray even under water pressure with single firefighter.
  • Easy maneuverability in horizontal and vertical plane.
  • Almost maintenance free.
  • Oil and Gas Plants.
  • Off-shore and On-shore platforms.
  • Oil Refineries.
  • Petroleum Storage Tanks and Depots.
  • Chemical and Fertilizer Plants.
  • Steel Plants.
  • Power Plants.
  • Airport Runways.
