The Task Force Blitzfire is a personal portable monitor (PPM) capable of flows of 500+ GPM and is easily deployed by one firefighter.
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.
The design of the inlet and the discharge neck creates a downward pressure that adds stability to the Blitzfire.
It has a rear pivoting inlet that allows the hose to stay flat to the ground.
The folding legs extend outward to provide lateral stability.
The discharge can be adjusted for a low attack angle.
It can be secured to the ground or another object by using the provided strap and base ring.
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.
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.
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: – Laterally – From the top – Blunt force – Water hammer (from the pump side) Any of these will trip this feature.
Discharge pressures with solid tip 100 feet of 2 ½” 100 PSI = 400 GPM 125 PSI = 450 GPM 150 PSI = 500 GPM
