High-performance nozzles for open-type deluge, water walls, and water mist fire protection systems

At the forefront of fixed and special hazard fire suppression systems is Spray Nozzle Engineering and BETE fog nozzle. Since 1988, Spray Nozzle Engineering has been a leader in selection and supply or various spraying systems for fire protection, both with its own products and as the Australasian partner of BETE Fog Nozzles; from special hazard deluge, to fixed fire suppression and pre-engineered vehicle systems, tunnels, off shore marine, under and above ground. Mining nozzles

Spray Nozzle Engineering has engineered a complete range of patented pre-engineered fire nozzles, for protection of both, fixed assets and mobile equipment. With spray nozzles unique foil orifice protection systems, we have a full metal to metal seal foil burst nozzle system for both foam and water applications. Used by some of the worlds largest fire companies, they can supply these nozzles in both brass and stainless materials.

As Australasia’s exclusive partner for BETE fog nozzle fire suppression nozzle technology, Spray Nozzle Engineering offer the complete range of BETE nozzles for all fire protection applications.

BETE fog nozzle offer every nozzle type, spray pattern and material of construction for a variety of fire fighting nozzle applications. With BETE’s own in-house nozzle technology centre, they can help select the correct nozzle for the application based on droplet, size, spray coverage and distribution, as well as spray drift ad spray density. BETE has a full range of fire fighting nozzles that are approved for fire protection, and come with approvals from some of the worlds most recognised testing authorities including FM factory mutual, UL – Underwriters Laboratories, Lloyds Register, US coast guard and more.

BETE can supply fire protection nozzles for every application and were the inventors of both, the spiral nozzle renowned for its low drift and low blockage characteristics; and the impingement misting nozzle.

Your best friend in fire hose technology

Reel Tech technology, partner of Spray nozzle Engineering, has served Australian and international fire protection services in all industries for over 30 years, creating cost-effective, compact, customised, and safety-compliant hose and cable reel solutions. Their range includes Hannay tried and trusted Fire and Rescue reel series and their own world patented, Australian designed and manufactured FireDog™ fire protection reels.

Fire Dog Hose Reels for fire protection

The FireDog™ is a new innovation in direct-drive safety hose reels, designed for reduced risk of injury and fatigue during operation. It features an Integrated Mechanical ClutchPat. Pend. that minimises hose drag, free wheel mode for easy payout, emergency override mode for manual crank, and Unique Action Brake Pat. Pend. manual braking mechanism. It comes in ultra-narrow to ultra-wide widths to fit different space requirements and optional lightweight aluminium construction.

Reel Tech’s engineering team has also patented the Flat Winder™ level-wind system, a world first in hose and cable layering. This advanced technology aids easy payout, requires less personnel for hose storage duties, and delivers more reliable and consistent layering. Flat Winder™ is the ideal choice to combine with the robustness of a FireDog™ or Hannay Fire and Rescue reel for the perfect hose reel system solution.

Equipped with a quick change hub, heavy-duty modular form, low cost motor, safer rewind speed and optional remote control operation, the unequalled FireDog™ is at the forefront of fire-fighting hose reel technology. Where quick response times are critical, FireDog™ is your best friend.

New Patented Vehicle Fire Suppression Nozzles

The BM Foil nozzles produce a uniform distribution of small to medium sized droplets, in both standard and wide angle, solid cone spray patterns. Incorporating Blow-Off Cap technology, and patented Rolled Lip core retention, industry approvals include Lloyd’s Register and Factory Mutual certifications.

BM Foil NozzleThe BM Foil nozzles incorporate a patented foil cover orifice protection system, designed to burst when required and fully dislodge to ensure consistent spray distribution and fire suppression performance. The positive foil dislodgement technology protects the nozzle orifice in the most arduous environments prior to deployment. Therefore, the BM-Foil series is a great choice for vehicle engine bay foam fire protection in mining, farming, forestry and applications where nozzle orifices require protection.

The BM Foil is suitable for high heat and dust susceptible environments as it does not contain O-rings or rubber or silicone seals, thus avoiding degradation and adhesion problems that can occur with these components. For added protection, a dust cap and lanyard are available to fit the BM Foil nozzles.

The BM Foil nozzles are available in many spray angles, flow rates, and thread sizes for male and female connection (BSP & NPT). Manufactured to batch numbering standards, and available in brass, stainless steel or combined material construction, the BM Foil range is fully customisable for your application requirements.
