New acquisition provides Oshkosh with exclusivity to SNOZZLE® fire supression product line
Published on 10 May 2011
Customers of Oshkosh Airport Products and Pierce to benefit from industry leading technology.
“This acquisition gives Oshkosh Airport Products and Pierce customers exclusivity to the SNOZZLE high-reach extendable turret and, with it, the best-in-class service and support they’ve come to expect through our combined network of factory direct resources and excellent dealers,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “The SNOZZLE redefines firefighting performance and agent application in emergency situations, and we’re proud to feature this innovative fire suppression technology in our industry leading portfolio of products.”
The SNOZZLE apparatus is available with a piercing nozzle that can strategically enter an aircraft’s passenger cabin, cargo compartment or other structure for direct application of firefighting agents. The lightweight, highly flexible extendable turret is able to operate as an elevated water tower through a doorway or over a wing exit without endangering firefighters. The product’s patented ability to shoot a full master stream at ground level allows for quick and effective cooling of burning aircraft tires and hot brakes. In addition, the SNOZZLE will reach down, at or below grade, where it can successfully employ the “seat of the fire” method of attacking a fuel spill fire.
