Aluminum Red 1 1/2 inch twist nozzle rotates seamlessly from off to straight stream to fog pattern. Bale shut-off valve allows user to maintain a consistent nozzle pattern while turning water flow on and off. Polymer pistol grip can be easily removed with an Allen wrench and polymer ball and seat allow for reduced friction when operating bale under pressure.

National Hose (NH) aka National Standard Thread (NST) is often referred to as “fire hose thread” as this is by far the most common thread in use today by fire departments.

How we Conducted Our Nozzle Testing

We used a Honda self-priming water pump with a two inch inlet and a two outlet that produces 135 gallons per minute (GPM). The nozzle was attached to a fifty foot 5/8 inch hose. The pump pressure was approximately 60 PSI. Gallons per minute was calculated by measuring the number of gallons a nozzle could fill a large container within one minute. The result is the GPM.

1 1/2" Hose Couplings

  • Inside diameter of a male adapter - 1 1/2 inches
  • Outside diameter of a male NH / NST adapter - 2 inches (1.99) - 9 Threads per inch
  • Outside diameter a male NPSH or NPT adapter - 1 7/8 inches (1.87) - 11.5 Threads per inch

1 3/4" Hose Couplings

  • 1 3/4 inch hoses come with 1 1/2 inch couplings

 

Connections

  • The female side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a male NH / NST connection
  • The male side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a female NH / NST connection
  • The female side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a male NPT pipe or a male NPSH connection
  • The male side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a female NPSH connection. 

    It will NOT thread into a female NPT pipe. For example, a male NPSH coupling will NOT thread into a female metal or pvc pipe.
  • The female side of a garden hose will only connect to a male garden hose connection.
  • The male side of a garden hose will only connect to a female garden hose connection.

The most common thread type in use by fire departments today is NST or National Standard Thread. NST also goes by the initials NH or National Hose. It can even be referred to as NHT or National Hose Thread but NST or NH is more common these days. NH = NST
