Akron Brass Introduces Key Industrial Firefighting Products
Wednesday, May 02, 2007
Wooster, Ohio – Akron Brass announced today the introduction of two key new industrial firefighting products at the 2007 National Safety Conference of the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association.
For industrial fixed site applications, Akron unveiled their new Style 3530 Elevated Manual Monitor. Its unique design features the most compact, simple, and efficient elevated monitor on the market today. Most importantly, all this is achieved without compromising the traditional superior performance of Akron Brass products.
Made with corrosion resistant materials throughout, the new 3350 is available in 10, 15, and 20-ft. heights. With a flow rate up to 750 gpm, it features an optimized nozzle design with trouble-free pattern actuation, an integral stream shaper, and excellent reach (235-ft. at 750 gpm). For rugged reliability, it has a maintenance free rotation joint design and includes a 5-year warranty as standard.
Next, Akron Brass introduced their new generation Style 3528 Omega XP monitor. Building upon a successful global legacy with their Omega, Akron has made enhancements to update this workhorse product.
For marine and industrial environments, the Omega XP has durable brass construction for corrosion resistance and cast-in turning vanes for more efficient flow (maximum flow is 1250 gpm). One leading change is an enhanced design for less tip weight which translates to lower handle operating force. Additionally, a unique locking mechanism provides the means to hold the desired monitor position. A 5-year warranty is standard with new 3528 Omega XP as well.
