Revolutionize your fireground operations with TFT's new dual feature SHO-FLOW app
VALPARAISO, Ind. — TFT's new SHO-FLOW app is the fire service’s first dual featured application that operates as either a fully functional stand-alone water flow calculator or in conjunction with TFT’s SHO-FLOW Bluetooth Flow Meter.
In stand-alone mode, crews are able to independently calculate everything related to getting water to the fire using established fire flow formulas. Functions include Flow Rate, Nozzle Reaction, Pump Discharge Pressure, Hose Friction Loss and establishing Target Fire Flow Rates.
Users also have the option to seamlessly connect to any TFT SHO-FLOW Bluetooth Flow Meter, and transform their calculations into real world numbers in real time. Instead of using formulas, measure real time flow rates and calculate true Pump Discharge Pressures (PDP), Nozzle Reaction, Hose Friction Loss, and even conduct NFPA 1962 Flow Tests.
The revolutionary app, designed to deliver information in either metric or USA units, also allows custom naming of the team’s SHO-FLOW meter device, as well as enabling an unlimited amount of first responders to see real time flow rate, total water delivered, and device friction loss from up to a quarter mile away.
The dynamic app also includes instant links to TFT’s water flow education video series, H2KnOw, and recommendations for target fire flows when using water or foam.
Android and Apple users can download the free application on Google Play or at the App Store (search apps for “SHO-FLOW”).
TFT was founded on innovation over 50 years ago. Every day new ideas flow at TFT for one reason, to help firefighters save lives and protect property more safely and effectively than the day before.
The fire service has lots of great suppliers, but only a very few that are true water flow experts. Since day one, TFT has focused on water flow exclusively. This has yielded thousands of innovative products used every day for initial attack, water supply, fire apparatus and both wildland and industrial firefighting. We design products to meet all the needs of the fire service, not just a convenient percentage of the demands.
