The task force tipped bullets fired -- fire costly. When they were created league it really generate a whole new chunk of market because it was something that never existed before the blitz fire. Was really designed to feel need not so much from the larger -- like across farm out there. But actually to take place of the seldom used it very infrequently holed two and a half -- blitz line had plate handles. As we -- issues of staffing issues of size -- quickness of deployment. All went -- the design of the -- fire portable monitoring and actually created its own market segment called personal portable monitor you PM. Which it's often referred to now. Sort of very quickly go through both the -- fire in the -- are costly to give you a rough over overview I guess of the component tree and some of the key features that we feel that we've integrated into these monitors. Again designed more for offensive type attack instead of a large defense of attack that you have with the the bigger thousand or 12150 -- a minute crossfire -- monitor. These 500 gallons per minute blitz pipelines are designed for two and a half or three and -- attack lines often pre connect -- track. Some of the key features that we identified on an initial attack. Offensive type attack -- you have to have a very low -- you're gonna use this internally something to get way way down so. The monitor has an amazingly low attack and -- And you see is we talked a bit further we heavy blitz light in the picture here which is restricted to about 830 degree attack. We brought that along because that's kind of our European international version of what the -- fire. But again a very very low attack angle. The rear has CO. Really captivity in -- back here which allows it to be used either on the flat. Or -- -- -- below grade keeping the hole is very close to the ground. And one of the other amazingly unique features that we did manage to design into the -- fire is the fact that we use a safety -- -- Actually it's based around this -- slide valve that we use in our nozzles but it's designed with a one G force to trapped. In any manner so if it becomes unstable. Even -- 500 gallons a minute if it starts to swing or move or. Have some sort of on wanted motion and -- the trip mechanism is gonna shut it down safely -- you -- that went very quickly at first. And then towards the end -- -- opens or closes slowly so you don't have any problem with water hammer. Also you notice here this won the -- far -- leading the unit. -- is in it's still would position its legs are tucked under and you can see that it's very small and fits very nicely into a mounting bracket now the mounting bracket. Is such that it can be moderate on the river truck in a compartment or anywhere else in the the blitz pars easily taken on or put back call if you have two or advanced or wherever your putting it. I'll what I didn't -- show you though is the width of the legs when their folded out here you see quite a difference between the stowed position is what the deployed position here. And that's part of where the stability comes from on the portable monitor because. That's one of the biggest issues that we have one -- of 500 gallons per monitor achieved. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Including things like a tie down strap has provided. Our key parts of what your operational procedures need to be with the -- far. But again 500 gallons a minute very quickly -- attack angle wide stance safety valve. Plus the slide -- just like any of our nozzles we have total nozzle and flow controls what you can gate the nozzle. To anything you want and have perfect stream quality Weathers through said the stacked chips with a -- -- or through the Max force dual pressure nozzle that we have here. Over here we have the costly component and you notice for the most part. The -- fire function. Parts pieces of pretty -- -- identical with the exception of the component tree that's on the hit here. Where we have this -- -- here with the nozzle attached. There's an oscillation feature here which is really just a water turbine that turns a cult -- and allows you to pick either twenty. Thirty or forty degrees of -- The higher the flow faster that we all the more quickly it spins back and forth but basically you can choose to use it in isolation mode. Where he hit the button on the end of it on the control panel up here and it gives you the ability to go back to a regular manual mode. So whether it's the consolation. Version that you have here which is ideal for. Structural pre treatment or any sort of chemical or has this betrayal spills it may be dealing with -- paper suppression. Or if it's the small lightweight initial attack -- fire. Both of these units are designed for quick deployment with limited staffing. And the ability to bring high volume -- in on an initial attack with limited people. So if you need additional information on either the -- fire or the blitz fire -- -- version you can visit us at WW WT FT dot com. Or you can give -- one of our service -- -- -- people call and we'd be happy to talk to get 8034826. XX.
