Aussie Water Wall hose for containment

Thursday, 31 October, 2013 | Supplied by: Australian Pump Industries Pty Ltd

The Aussie Water Wall creates a 300 m2, 12-15 m high wall of water jets from just one hose. The effect of such a concentrated impact can be used to stop fire or isolate a dangerous situation.

Designed to be used in containment situations, the hose can create a firebreak and protect adjacent environments from heat damage. It can also be used in an isolating capacity in applications such as fuel and hazmat refilling work or decontamination.

The device can also be used to deliver extinguishing and wetting agents, disinfectant and other chemicals. Jetting vapours and liquids can assist in the absorption of hazardous heavy gases. Chemicals can be introduced to the watermist to neutralise a dangerous environment.

Consisting of 20 m of 75 mm Duraflex hose with 25 high-grade steel, interchangeable nozzles, the hose weight is 16 kg and it is flexible enough for rough terrain, including steps and rugged bushland. Sections can be locked together for extended coverage.

Counter pressure generated by the nozzles prevents twisting so the hose is self-stabilising. The water can be jetted horizontally or vertically and jets can be sealed off using dummy plugs.

The water capacity is up to 1550 L/min depending on the pressure available and the nozzles used. Storz couplings are optional.

The device is suitable for use with high-pressure/high-flow pumps such as Aussie Fire Chief or Mr T fire fighters.
