Automatic nozzle benefits l.jpg

Automatic Nozzle Benefits...

  • Consistent hard-hitting streams

  • Correct nozzle pressure with available flow

  • Maximum reach with available water

  • Able to adjust to varying water supply conditions

  • Nozzle reaction is a direct indication of flow

  • Nozzle flow control (with slide valve)

Disadvantages of automatic nozzles l.jpg

Disadvantages of Automatic Nozzles...

  • Higher initial cost

  • Design unfamiliar to repair personnel

  • May not provide adequate water at extremely low pressures

  • Stream may look good, but may not be providing adequate water for extinguishment or protection

  • The need for a Standard Operating Guideline for minimum pump pressures
