Corrosion resistant stainless steel monitor SHIELD Model- SD-SSM350 is durable manual controlled monitor for fixed installation as well as trailer mounted unit. The monitor is generally used for protection of flammable liquid storage tanks, loading racks, dykes marine and many other industrial applications.
The Monitor possesses several design features that provides ease of operation, minimum maintenance and resistance to normally destructive environments. The monitor is used with aspirating, non-aspirating and water nozzles with flow range upto 800 GPM (3030 LPM).
The monitor has welded stainless steel 3 inch (80mm) water way. The vertical and horizontal rotation is through stainless steel swivelling joints with double row of stainless steel ball bearing. Both vertical and horizontal movements are controlled by handle with twist lock.
The monitor has large flow capability and can be manually operated by a single fire fighter. The design ensures to prevent jet reaction forces from eRecting the horizontal and the vertical position of the monitor.
The monitor has the ability for 360° Continuous horizontal rotation and angle of elevation from 90° above horizontal and 45° below horizontal.
The water vanes in discharge tube reduce the turbulence and friction loss, thus increasing the nozzle performance to achieve greater range. To ensure desired performance, the friction loss through monitor must be considered while selecting the nozzle and the flow through the monitor with reference to available base pressure at inlet of the monitor. For flow and jet reach data refer monitor nozzle data sheet.
