Oscillating Rapid Attack Nozzle (R.A.N.) introduced at FDIC

Elkhart Brass Manufacturing Company, Inc. debuts a new oscillating Rapid Attack Nozzle (R.A.N. model #3890) at this year's FDIC in Indianapolis, April 24th - 26th. The water-powered oscillating nozzle is easily retro-fit to any existing Rapid Attack Monitor (R.A.M.®).

"The original R.A.M is the safest, most compact, offensive deployment monitor on the market. We needed to make sure the oscillating version did not lose the ‘rapid' in rapid attack," states Dominick Monico, VP of Sales and Business Development for Elkhart Brass. "Our new 3890 oscillating nozzle does not interfere with the size or stability of the R.A.M. This nozzle fits the needs of a rapid deployment monitor."

Once the R.A.M. is deployed with water flow, the 3890 utilizes the water power to create an automatic oscillation with an infinitely adjustable sweep angle from 12.5° to 20°, on each side of center. The new 3890 is also equipped with a quick disengage lever for manual control. As with other R.A.N. models, the new oscillating R.A.N. features an integrated stream shaper and is compatible with foam tube usage.

The 500 GPM oscillating R.A.N. is packaged as a complete kit which may be retro-fit to any existing R.A.M with the installation of a simple support bracket. Once installed, the 3890 attaches and detaches in seconds.
