Branch Pipes and Fire Hoses



Fire Fighting Branch Pipes

Fest Fire Security supplies a wide variety of branch pipes for the purpose of suppressing fires.

What is a branch pipe?

A branch pipe is a special type of nozzle used in fire fighting that gets attached to the end of a hose of which some have the ability to adjust by hand to direct, shape, and regulate the flow of water or fire fighting agent.

A variety of different branch pipes are available for fighting fires and their usage depends on the fire hazard situation and its environment.

The diffuser branch pipe has a rotating part that sets the spray mode. When rotating it to one side the nozzle creates a spray. When rotating to the end, the nozzle creates a water curtain that (because of its tiny droplet size) can protect the person holding the nozzle from heat.

The hand control branch pipe also known as the London diffuser branch pipe is fitted with an adjusting handle. Moving the handle will produce fog, spray, jet, and shut off.

The ball shape head of the branch pipe is fitted with many small nozzles pointing in different directions and the head rotates when water passes through it. This creates a rotating jet at different angles.

This nozzle uses aspirating air sucked into the stream of water based foam and shoots it into a cone shaped sieve that helps foam up the liquid agent. Its lever is adjusted to alter the flow of the liquid agent and to shut it off.

What is a fire hose?

A fire hose is a long tube made of synthetic fibres that carry a liquid fire retardant to the face of a fire hazard for the purpose of extinguishing it and can withstand high pressure during the suppression process. Hose diameter is the most important factor in determining volume of water delivered and its specific purpose of use.

A reel hose is a type of hose that is fixed to a spinning reel and gets pre connected to a pump. It is used to put out smaller fires and designed to operate at pressures up to 800 psi.The reel hose is round shaped and flexible and has a thick rubber wall with a thin diameter of 19 and 25 mm.It is designed to maintain its round shape when it is not under pressure for simplicity of rolling.

Forestry hoses
