A compact and affordable solution with integrated Bluetooth, TFT’s SHO-FLOW 1 Flow Meter series provides accurate, real time information for use in testing, training and firefighting operations about water flow rates on a single hose line. When installed, the device generates power using water flow to run itself, so no batteries are needed to operate! Power is harvested from an internal moving turbine and will transmit flow rates to any smart device via Bluetooth. The SHO-FLOW is simple, reliable and easy to use. The new SHO-FLOW 1 is 1.5” (38mm), and a 2.5” (63mm) version will be released later this year. SHO-FLOW 1 Flow Meter Series The SHO-FLOW 1 is substantially more compact than competitive models, coming in at only 6.1” (155mm) in length and weighing only 2.6 lbs (1.2kg). It requires no batteries and comes factory calibrated. Flow rates can be viewed on any Android or Apple smart device via TFT’s free app, which is available on Google Play and the Apple App Store. The flow meter can be easily connected in line with any size hose that has 1.5” couplings. Since flow readings are transmitted to a linked smart device, the unit is extraordinarily rugged and convenient Since flow readings are transmitted to a linked smart device, the unit is extraordinarily rugged and convenient. There is no worry about display screens being damaged in extreme fire service use, no batteries to monitor for operation, and you don’t need to be next to the unit to obtain flow information. Accurate with minimum friction loss The SHO-FLOW 1 is accurate with minimal friction loss and can be used with water or a water/foam mix. Its flow range is 50 – 300 gpm (200 – 1150 l/min) with a maximum operating pressure of 300psi. Inlet/outlets are available in NH, NPSH and BSP styles. The SHO-FLOW 1 has an introductory list price of US$ 995.00 USD and is available for order through TFT distributors worldwide.
TFT’s new H2knOw is a series of videos designed to teach the fundamentals of firefighting water flow. The series explores important topics and delivers fact-based results that are measurable and grounded in physics, not opinion. Flow test device with PLC The series utilizes a flow test device (FTD) with a programmable logic controller or PLC. With this device, viewers can see information like flow pressures and nozzle reactions from the other parts of the system and how they react when circumstances change. The H2knOW series is about helping firefighters with information. Facts that allow them to do more without increasing the risk. Firefighting is tough, so it’s important to have the right tools and to know what will happen as conditions change. The first series is currently on-line now with videos that cover “How a Nozzle Works.”
One of the biggest fire safety and security event globally, FDIC International 2018 saw Task Force Tips introduce new ER nozzles for its largest and its smallest RC monitors. TFT Tsunami high volume monitors Industrial customers are rapidly adopting Task Force Tips’ Tsunami high volume (2700 to 8000 gpm) RC monitors for fixed, trailer and apparatus applications and were looking for a dispersed pattern nozzle. The new 6” remote control VORTEX nozzle when used with stacked tips provides for a straight stream or a fully filled, long reaching dispersed pattern with no loss of water flow volume or pressure. TFT’s latest RC monitor and ER nozzle package is ideal for industrial water and foam applications Industrial water applications TFT’s latest RC monitor and ER nozzle package is ideal for industrial water and foam applications. This is largely because of its superior friction loss (only 15psi at 8000 gpm) and even in the dispersed pattern, the stream is longer than traditional fog nozzles. From 20 gpm to 8000 gpm, TFT ER Nozzles lead the fire safety equipment market in stream quality and reliability. TFT ER nozzle Task Force Tips has also introduced their most compact ER nozzle range to package with the most compact RC monitor. The new ER Twister nozzle was specially released to pair with the TFT EF1 monitor. It’s the electronic remote version of TFT’s proven Twister design. Available in a 20/60 gpm (75/225 l/min) or 20/95 gpm (75/360 l/min) version, they give users and customers the option to add an integrated TFT Bubble Cup to produce aspirated foam. The ER nozzle is easy to install, maintain and comes with a personal choice of traditional joystick or TFT’s new Bluetooth Tactile Touch controller.
