TFT's QuadraFog Nozzle Series Is FM Approved
TFT's QuadraFog Nozzle Series Is FM Approved

Available in tip-only configuration for break-and-extend operations, or with stainless steel ball shut-off and optional colored pistol grip, TFT's QuadraFog selectable gallonage nozzle line delivers. The QuadraFog 1” (25 mm) series, with break-resistant cut fixed metal fog teeth and optional foam attachments, delivers at 20-40-100-150 l/min @ 7 bar (5-10-24-40 gpm). The QuadraFog 1.5” (38mm) offers fixed or stainless steel spinning teeth, and features 110-230-360-470 l/min @ 7 bar (30-60-95-125 gpm @ 100 psi), or low pressure 5 bar (75 psi).  The QuadraFog 1.5” (38 mm) is FM approved, NFPA 964 compliant and accepts low-or multi-expansion foam attachments. When hard initial attack with limited staffing is a must, reach for TFT's BLITZFIRE 2,000 l/min (500 gpm) portable monitor - a light, “handline-maneuverable” monitor that shuts down automatically if destabilized. The (oscillation optional) BLITZFIRE ships ready to stake and set for unmanned firefighting.  Six detent flow positions and a patented turbulence-free slide valve make manual gating simple.  Tailboard pre-connection allows immediate deployment. Whether on porch, ground, or stairwell, BLITZFIRE'S low (10º above horizontal) attack “goes in the front door” with high fire flow.  Twenty degree side-to-side and up to 50º elevation make this a TFT bestseller. For the storage-space conscious, there's the BLITZ LITE, a Euro-scaled version of the BLITZFIRE.  Same 2,000 l/min (500 gpm), low friction loss, and TFT five-year warranty - but smaller in size and price.

TFT Reinvents Suction Hose
TFT Reinvents Suction Hose

Patent pending "V-seal" and Binding Strip allows the hose to flex without leaking. TFT custom boxes and flat ships hose to insure its undamaged delivery. TFT offers a five-year warranty. The competition does not. The hose has 50 percent more flow visibility than the competition's. Unlike competitive powder coated models, TFT's hard coat anodized components prevent scratching and chipping. TFT's hose is about 10 percent lighter than the competition's. TFT's patent pending polymer ring coupling allows interchangeability with TFT's unique coupling system, easy attachment or detachment of the hose, and no binding up in sandy or freezing conditions. Heavy duty barrel strainer gives maximum flow capability.  The impact resistant polymer won't dent when dropped and won't corrode even in contaminated water. The strainer features a wavy pattern so that leaves and debris resist sucking flat against the straining holes.  An oversized loop makes tying off the strainer easy.  The coupling is made from hard anodized aluminum and rotates easily on a polymer bearing ring. TFT's LDH Suction Hose is designed for drafting water from dry hydrants, portable water tanks, swimming pools, ponds, lakes, rivers and other NON-PRESSURIZED water sources.  All couplings rotate easily on TFT’s patent pending coupling system.  The clear PVC hose body allows greater visibility of hose fill and remains flexible even at low temperatures, while the rigid black helix provides support and abrasion resistance.  TFT's patent pending V-Seal, binding strip and smooth contoured shanks are secured with dual stainless steel bands to prevent leakage and hose damage even with tight bends.  Minimum bend radius is 12.5”.  All aluminum parts are hardcoat anodized for maximum corrosion protection.  NOT INTENDED FOR PRESSURE SERVICE.

TFT Introduces New Remote BIV With Industry’s Largest Waterway
TFT Introduces New Remote BIV With Industry’s Largest Waterway

Task Force Tips' new remote controlled Jumbo Ball Intake Valve (RC BIV) not only sets new standards with the industry's largest waterway, but it also breaks the friction loss barrier, giving up as little as 3 psi @ 2,000 gpm. “The remote control cuts down on firefighters having to climb up and down the truck,” said Rod Carringer, TFT's vice president for sales & marketing.  “While the increased size allows a better match to your inlet, giving you a less restricted flow.  It's a win/win design development that lends itself to top-mount pumps, as well as trucks with larger (gpm)  pumps.” Nearly a year in development, the newest member of TFT's RC  (remote control) group sailed through prototype field trials.  Using the top selling BIV with its 3-5/8th inch waterway as the industry's benchmark, mechanical engineers doubled the waterway size, while adding less than an inch in unit height and 1-½ inch in length. “The 30 degree elbow swivels 360 degrees, allowing hose connections from any direction with minimal kinks and coupling stress,” Carringer explained.  “It also has TFT's triple coating protection, meaning that it's been powder coated, poly impregnated and hardcoat anodized.  Some think of that as overkill.  But that protection is what allows all of our BIV's to work for years under extreme conditions. “And I know that everyone has heard about, read about or bought other electronic devices that have trouble with corrosion and water impregnation,” Carringer said.“ At TFT, we have a track record of rugged dependability and innovation, as well as a full five-year warranty.  TFT's design engineering group has gone to great lengths to assure an airtight seal.  That, along with the triple coating, gives us an edge in design, quality, and durability.” The prewired RC unit is easy to install. “Basically, you hook two wires to your power supply,” Carringer said.“ Two buttons on the control panel operate the valve, and there's an LED display to show the position of the valve.  Then there's 10 foot of wire between the BIV and the control box.” The unit ships in the “Manual Mode” cycle, where the operator has to press and hold the button to open or close the BIV.  When switched to the “Automatic Mode,” a momentary press of the button moves the unit into the open or shut position. For apparatus with smaller  (4” and 4 ½”) intake valves, TFT has two adapter rings that are featured in its new catalog.  For information about adapter rings, the BIV, the RC BIV, the Jumbo BIV, or the RC Jumbo BIV, phone TFT at (800) 348 - 2686 or visit TFT's website at www.tft.com.
