Abstract:

The purpose of this test series was to evaluate and compare the fire suppression performance of a new dual agent nozzle from Regal Products, Inc. with the P-19 standard aqueous film forming foam AFFF and halon handline nozzles. A dual agent nozzle may have application in suppressing 3-D Class B fires where the fire suppression attributes of a gaseous agent will complement the fire suppression and securing performance of AFFF. This nozzle was provided by Regal Products, Inc. for evaluation at no cost to the government. Objectives for the test series were - Measure and compare the maximum throw range and discharge patterns of the test nozzles with those of AF standard AFFF and halon nozzles. - Evaluate and compare the fire suppression performance capability of the test AFFF nozzle to the P-19 AFFF handline nozzle. - Evaluate the ergonomic properties of the test dual agent nozzle, to include ease of operation, back-pressure and comfort.
