THE GLAZIER TURRET PIPE.

THE GLAZIER TURRET PIPE.

Not many years ago—it was during the New York convention of fire engineers—the Glazier nozzles were introduced as being something that would interest those that pinned their faith to large streams for fire extinguishment. It was apparent then that the time had not come for their immediate indorsement; but it came very soon afterwards, when the value of a wagon turret pipe was demonstrated. The use of these nozzleS for all purposes has now become general and it is seldom that a well equiped fire department will be found without one. The illustration shows a Glazier turret pipe installed on the fireboat New Yorker, where it is giving much satisfaction. This is only one of the many uses to which the nozzle may be put. Where a large stream of water is necessary, the Glazier standpipe may be used. On hose wagons, fireboats. and for fire protection in factory yards it wall be found to give good results. Tts greatest merit is that, while under pressure, it may be moved with little effort to any angle, and its carrying capacity is limited only by the pressure employed.
