Roto-Jet Fire Hose Washer

Product From American Airworks

This fire hose washer removes hydrocarbons that can carry 90% of the toxins produced by a fire. These hydrocarbons can also contain carcinogens. Potentially hazardous substances can be absorbed through the skin by contact. Rinsing the fire hose off only removes the surface soot, leaving the embedded hydrocarbons in the hose fibers. Deep and thorough scrubbing, combined with high pressure rinsing, are needed to remove these potentially dangerous deposits. The Roto-Jet fire hose washer can help increase the safety, health and well being of your station personnel. There can be no better reasons to own one.
