containing 86 gallons of AFFF premixed solution and
the other containing 200 pounds of Halon 1211. The
system permits use of the fire-fighting agents either
separately or simultaneously.
The TAU-2H (fig. 12-12) employs a noncollapsible
dual hose line encased in a fire-resistant cotton jacket.
The hose line is normally mounted on a reel.
fire-extinguishing agents are propelled by nitrogen
supplied from two pressurized cylinders, which are
mounted on the framework. The twinned nozzles on
the handline expel the fire-fighting agents. The Halon
nozzle is equipped with a low-reaction discharge tip.
The AFFF nozzle is equipped with a aspirating tip.
Duel pistol grip handles and triggers operate the shutoff
valves. Extinguishment is obtained by applying agents
in a sweeping motion, using the chemical agent Halon
1211 to gain initial extinguishment, followed by
application of AFFF to blanket the combustible liquid
and preclude reignition.
