Fire Nozzles – The Alpha 450A
The Alpha 450A forms an integral part of Delta’s Specialist Fire Nozzles range and was originally designed to take the place of the old Akron Firebird Nozzle when it was discontinued some time ago.
Effectively the Alpha is a variant of the ever popular Delta Attack 500 Constant Flow Nozzles but without the ball shut-off. It benefits from the same flow rate of 450 litres per minute and has exactly the same mode of operation as the Firebird. Water shut-off on the Alpha is achieved by rotating the nozzles front bumper head. This smooth operation allows the users to go from a ‘closed’ position to ‘jet’ & then ‘spray’.
Designed for use with both water or foam the ‘constant flow’ nature of the Alpha450A ensures accurate foam induction in all settings when used in conjunction with a compatible flow foam inductor.
The Alpha 450A benefits from an ergonomically designed pistol grip handle with a hard black anodised body providing good abrasion resistance and superb durability and is fitted with a 2½” instantaneous swivel inlet as standard. International inlet fittings can be fitted upon request.
Computer designed stainless steel spinning turbine teeth produce an extremely dense fog pattern providing excellent fire fighter capabilities and significantly higher degrees of personal protection.
As with all fire nozzles from Delta’s Professional Range, the Alpha 450A is manufactured to exacting standards in the UK under an ISO9001 Quality Management Standard on state-of-the-art CNC machines and is guaranteed against manufacturing defect for 10 years. Spares are available on an immediate ex-stock basis from Delta’s Norfolk based facility preventing inconvenient nozzle ‘down time’. A dedicated Technical Support Team are on hand to provide advice and assistance and within Delta’s fire nozzle department are specialist service engineers, designers and nozzle training staff.
