Nozzles and Cannons Bespoke,monitors for specific needs can be. supplied on request,Firefighting monitors are installed.
in harsh environments and will,normally remain unused for many. years and then be required to,operate at peak performance in. an emergency As a result Angus,Fire pays particular attention to. design for long term reliability and,resilience, The choice of material is key to achieving high levels of performance The most corrosion resistant ones such as bronze are used in. extreme environments like offshore oil rigs where the punishing saltwater environment can severely limit the life of a monitor. Stainless steel is also used extensively for foam cannons and fittings to further the life of the monitors. In Angus Fire s wide ranging portfolio from a ground monitor delivering 900lpm at 7 bar to a trailer mounted system throwing. 30 000lpm of foam solution there is a suitable monitor to protect your risk. Applications,Fixed monitors are found where there,are substantial Class B fire risks whilst.
portable monitors are often used to,protect multiple risks by moving the. monitors around the site Nearly all,industrial fire hazards are candidates for. monitor protection but some of the more,common applications are. z F uel distribution depots,hemical plants,z Warehouses. elicopter landing pads,ircraft hangars,z L oading jetties.
rocess plants,z I ndustrial process areas,z S hipping. z Vehicle mounted,Fixed Monitors,Fixed monitors are used with foam for. firefighting or with water for cooling,of structures Simple in principle they. are the result of complex engineering,designed to deliver high performance. after long periods of inactivity,Angus Fire s range of fixed monitors is.
predominantly installed in purpose built,fire protection systems Alternatively they. can be mounted on trailers to offer the,flexibility of a mobile solution Options. include 1000l 2000l foam tanks or 1000l,tote trailers as pictured below. Hand Monitors, Hand Monitors are chosen for their simplicity and cost effectiveness Lever operated hand. control monitors are ideal for protecting risks where the monitor angle and trajectory can. be adjusted and locked before use Once in operation manoeuvring the steering arm. handle can be hard as the reaction forces created by the jet particularly at operating. pressures over 7 bar can make the load on the handle difficult for a single operator to. manage For this reason a counter weight is often fitted to manual monitors to help balance. the load of the reaction forces particularly when a foam cannon is fitted. The Angus LMB40 bronze fire monitor,features a simple and reliable design.
using a hand lever to control horizontal,and vertical movement The monitor. can be fastened in position by engaging For operator safety we would recommend manually operated monitors featuring screw. the locking nuts The picture shows the down locking nuts to control the rotational and vertical movements are limited in size to a. LMB40 with a self inducing nozzle max of 4 barrel or flows up to 8 000lpm. Geared Monitors, Geared monitors are used for a number of applications and in particular for trailer mounting. The gears make the horizontal and vertical movement of the monitor easy to change. Geared monitors are therefore ideal for protecting a variety of small high risk areas in a. terminal at different heights and distances small fuel storage tanks and bunds for example. In fixed monitor applications geared monitors can be used on risks demanding high. application rates of water or foam As the geared hand wheels make it easy to control the. monitor precisely,The Angus FWM Foam Water Monitor. is a geared monitor featuring separate,foam and water cannons for maximum. performance,The water jet barrel throws water up to.
50m making it ideal for cooling of small,The foam jet barrel delivers expanded. foam up to a range of 40m Changing the,application from water to foam is easily. achieved with a flick of the leaver on the,selection valve. vailable in 4 models giving foam,solution flow rates of 1300lpm to. 3600lpm at 7bar,z E ach unit has a separate standard water.

other areas where space is limited,ry and wet test kits are available. for periodic testing of the oscillating,function of the monitor. Remote Control Monitors, Remote control monitors are specified to protect high hazard areas where access for. personnel is obstructed They are widely used at Jetty Terminals and Marine Docks to protect. the means of escape from the jetty control room or loading arm areas As a result RCMs are. designed so that the monitor and the controls are located separately at significant distances. from each other The monitor will be located in the hazard zone whilst the panel controlling. the movement and the nozzle function will be located at a safe distance. The choice of power to operate remote control monitors includes hydraulic power provided. by either a water driven pelton wheel motor or electric pump or all electric power. The Angus Hydraulic Remote Control Monitor system comprises a monitor and control. panel with built in power pack A solid system featuring advanced engineering especially. designed to offer reliable and safe remote control operation at up to 300 metres away from. the risk The RCM is manufactured using state of the art techniques and is rigorously tested. at Angus Fire s production facility before shipment. z Totally independent water turbine driven or electric prime mover options. ontrol panels are available to operate either one or two monitors. ominal maximum throughput 4 500lpm at 16 bar, ronze stainless steel construction ideally suited for marine applications. an be fitted with the LTN nozzle for water or non aspirated foam or the FMC cannons. with or without blabbermouth,Portable Monitors, Sometimes it is more convenient to provide a rapid response by moving a portable.
monitor from hazard to hazard Portable Monitors are generally lightweight self inducing. using either low expansion foam or water They offer entry level fire fighting for protecting. hydrocarbon and other risks that require either finished foam or water applied from a. safe distance The choice depends on the size and type of risk and the application rate. recommended to achieve extinguishment, Typical applications for a foam bipod include bund and small tank protection rail and. truck loading gantries waste and oily pits Whereas Ground Monitors are ideal for. water cooling,Titan Bipod Monitor,Angus manufactures a range of bipod. monitors that are portable and easy to,set up They are designed to deliver either. a well expanded foam blanket for fire,extinguishment or a water jet for cooling. Bipod monitors are often deployed to,protect small fuel tanks NFPA 11 permits.
