Akron Brass Debuts Line Of Ultra High Pressure Products

Issue 7 and Volume 15.

Akron Brass introduced a full line of Ultra High Pressure products at the 2010 Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis in April.

The new products include a Bumper Monitor, a Handline Nozzle, a Trigger Shutoff with Assault Tip and various booster hose reels. They are designed to operate at pressures up to 1,500 psi and deliver ultra-fine water droplets at high velocity for increased heat absorption and rapid fire extinguishment.

The new technology, according to the company, enhances firefighting capabilities by: rapidly reducing the temperatures within an enclosed area; increasing positive pressure ventilation capacity; dramatically reducing personnel fatigue; and using two-thirds less water.
