The flow rate can be set through an easy grip ring featuring preset positions. The flow ring has a raised lug to identify the maximum flow setting in low visibility conditions. The FLUSH mode is used to ensure that any debris is flus- hed from the nozzle to avoid pattern disrup- tions or flow reductions.
The nozzle stream is adjusted by rotating the bumper giving the firefighter the widest fog pattern (Full Fog – Protection) to the na- rrowest fog pattern (Narrow Fog and Straight Stream). The bumper has a raised lug to iden- tify the Narrow Fog in low visibility conditions. The VIPER BLUE DEVIL series comes standard with the innovative patented fog pattern ca- lled RYLSTATIC®. RYLSTATIC® is a system that gives you a uniform water fog with smaller water droplets and less friction loss than other traditional systems. VIPER BLUE DEVIL nozzles have been designed to offer a broa- der fog shield of protection to the firefighters. Traditional spinning teeth are available as an option on all VIPER BLUE DEVIL nozzles.
Shut Off Valve:
The valve has a dual seat and dual driven shaft to offer better performance against water hammers and to enhance its durability. The valve itself is a low maintenance product with a stainless steel ball valve (except for the 2 1⁄2” size which utilizes a highly engineered poly- mer resin ball) operated through an OPEN/ CLOSE handle. The operation is smooth and constant allowing firefighters to open and clo- se the valve easily.
Stainless Steel Inlet Screen:
A stainless steel screen is mounted within the inlet to prevent materials from entering the nozzle, which reduces the risk of damage or failure during operation.
Markings on the flow selector ring and the pattern ring are laser engraved onto anodized aluminum that are easy to read and will not fade.
Every nozzle is marked with a lot number befo- re leaving the factory. This number can be used for traceability purposes.
