A fire monitor is a product characterized by a certain variety regarding the ways it can be maneuvered. We can identify four main categories: manual monitors, oil-hydraulically operated monitors, electrically operated monitors and self oscillating monitors. Anyhow, a fire monitor is always composed of two main joints: one allows the horizontal rotation, the other the vertical one. A fire monitor can have different and various sizes: in fact, size, together with the operating pressure, directly influence the capacity and the range of the device.
Fire monitors are typically installed on vehicles, ships and, more in general, in fixed locations, and can be equipped with branchpipes and nozzles.
