THE CONNER COMBINATION NOZZLE.
The Conner Combination Hose Nozzle Company, of 894 Third avenue and Fifty-fourth street, this city, claims for its nozzle (1) that it enables a fireman to approach as close to a fire as he may desire, while it affords him complete protection against smoke, cinders, and back draught; (a) it allows him quick and complete control of a conical and straight stream ; (3) it will throw a direct stream and a conical sheet of water simultaneously or alternately, as may be desired—the change sbeing accomplished by a turn of the handle. (4) This conical heet of water with fifty pounds pressure can be diverted from an area of seventy-five feet in circumference to a torrent of six feet ; additional pressure increases the area. (5) This nozzle cannot be manipulated so as to break the hose, as the shut-off is gradual. (6) The manufacturers further claim that this is the only combination nozzle that throws an unobstructed conical sheet of water—all others being divided* The nozzle will be found very handy by all fire departments.
