Task Force Tips launches new Hemisphere Monitor

The portable monitor can be pointed in virtually every direction


Task Force Tips introduced a new portable monitor that allows the user to establish water flow in locations where ground monitors can’t.

The new Hemisphere Monitor doesn’t rely on gravity for stability, so it can be pointed up, down or horizontally.

The swiveling waterway allows the stream to be pointed in virtually any direction, within a hemispherical range without interrupting water flow, the company says.

The quarter turn ball valve has a bail-type handle, which locks in the closed position, to prevent accidental discharge. Attachment to the various mounting options is as easy as sliding the socket at the base of the monitor onto the quick attach mount. A rotation release lever, that is separate from the release pin, allows the monitor to be rotated about its mount without the need to release the monitor from its mount.

Water pressurized pins prevent the monitor from rotating or releasing while flowing, and a separate mechanism in the release pull pin prevents the monitor from releasing when the weight of the monitor is unsupported.

It also has a built-in carrying handle and lightweight aluminum construction make transport and deployment quick and easy.

Task Force Tips’ Hemisphere Monitor will be on display at Fire-Rescue International from Aug. 26-29 at booth #22.
