This Mobile Water Monitor is special designed to meet SOLAS regulations II-2/10.7.3 and fully complies with IMO MSC.1/ Circ. 1472 - guidelines for design, testing and approval of Mobile Water Monitors for the protection of on-deck cargo and areas.
The monitor is highly maneuverable and can easily be operated without further training. It is simple to set up for quick attack operations and can be left unmanned at a fire scene.
Spring-loaded folding legs ensures minimum storage space need and quick release of the monitor from stowed position. Ground spikes on each leg ensures great stability of the monitor at any surface. To prevent the monitor to be forced backwards when used in low vertical degree angles, the monitor is delivered with an adjustable lashing strap with two carabiner hooks.
The nozzle on the monitor is a bronze heavy duty dual-purpose spray/jet discharge nozzle with 3 nozzle-tip settings. Each setting provides different flow patterns and reach. On the inlet side, a lever operated ball vale is mounted in order to control water flow direct at the monitor.
