|VORTEX W/ DETENT VALVE & GRIP 1.5X1.5"NH|
|PRODUCT SERIES OVERVIEW|
• The TFT Vortex enhances the use of a smoothbore nozzle. It is intended for installation behind a smoothbore nozzle for use with water or
fire fighting foam solutions. Six short vanes in the bore of the Vortex reduce turbulence in straight stream. Twisting the Stream Shaper from
“STREAM” to “VORTEX” causes the vanes to pivot proportionally. This induces a gentle spin in the water to create a uniformly dispersed
Vortex stream pattern. The vanes are less obtrusive than a typical stream straightener, resulting in virtually no friction loss regardless of which
stream pattern is selected. The vanes also allow large debris to easily pass through the Vortex.
• The Shaper includes a tactile detent at the straight stream and full Vortex dispersed positions as a secure confirmation that the desired
setting has been achieved. As seen from the operating position behind the nozzle, twisting the stream shaper clockwise moves the shaper
to the straight stream position. Twisting the shaper counterclockwise will result in an increasingly wider pattern until reaching the full Vortex
• Pivoting the vanes has virtually no effect on the flow area or ability to pass debris up to 5/8”. As a result, discharge pressure and flow rate
remain constant regardless of stream pattern. The nozzle reaction is greatest when the shaper is in the straight stream position.
