EV Emergency Response Guides all recommend using large amounts of water to cool and mitigate an EV fire. The new Transformer EV Nozzle System deploys in 60 seconds to deliver up to 150 GPM (570 LPM) to the underside of an EV where the battery, and risk of thermal runaway, is located.

TFT’s new Transformer EV kit is a new version of the most customizable specialty nozzle on the market. It only includes the components necessary for EV fires and is simple and quick to deploy. The nozzle breaks down into 5 smaller parts stored in a canvas bag (included) so it takes up very little room on the truck.

The fully assembled nozzle gives firefighters over 7' (2 m) of distance from the nozzle head, helping them stay safe on scene while delivering the water necessary. Just connect to a fire hose and it’s ready to go without extra equipment or air tanks.
