Why Does the Blitzfire Have a 500 GPM Max Flow Rate?

Why is the Blitzfire Rated for 500 GPM?

Blitzfire portable attack monitors are quick to deploy and can flow up to 500 GPM. These type of portable monitors are designed to let one firefighter with a single hoseline establish flow and blitz a fire through the front door or into the fire environment above the firefighter.

When you establish a flow above 500 GPM, you typically need a larger hoseline and experience a greater nozzle reaction force when properly pumped. Master stream smooth bores are rated for 80 PSI for optimal performance, versus 50 PSI for a handline smooth bore nozzle. Under pumping the smoothbore can affect your reach and stream performance.
