2 The Task Force Blitzfire is a personal portable monitor (PPM) capable of flows of 500+ GPM and is easily deployed by one firefighter.
3 It is supplied by a single 2 ½” hose, can be pre-connected to the apparatus, and can be mounted on the exterior of the rig for rapid deployment.
4 The design of the inlet and the discharge neck creates a downward pressure that adds stability to the Blitzfire.
5 It has a rear pivoting inlet that allows the hose to stay flat to the ground.
6 The folding legs extend outward to provide lateral stability.
7 The discharge can be adjusted for a low attack angle.
8 It can be secured to the ground or another object by using the provided strap and base ring.
9 The operating handle has a ratchet feature that allows for partial opening of the monitor. Pull the handle lock outward and pull the handle towards you.
10 It has a safety feature that shuts off the monitor when a sudden force (in excess of) 1G is introduced.Hydraulic dampening in the handle prevents water hammer in the Blitzfire.
11 Not for extending lines Because of the automatic shut-off feature, you should NOT extend hose lines from the Blitzfire.Any force greater than 1 G will automatically shut the Blitzfire down:LaterallyFrom the topBlunt forceWater hammer (from the pump side)Any of these will trip this feature.
12 Discharge pressures with solid tip 100 feet of 2 ½”100 PSI = 400 GPM125 PSI = 450 GPM150 PSI = 500 GPM
13 Solid tip (continued) 200 feet of 2 ½” 150 PSI = 435 GPM
14 Fog tip settings The fog tip has two settings: Low Pressure (55 PSI) Standard (100 PSI)Can also be adjusted to straight stream, fog, or flush.
