Orion Fire Engineering manufactures high-performance fire protection equipment. We have a wide range of products which can be adapted to suit the specific needs of our clients. With over 25 years of experience, we pride ourselves on producing quality products for the offshore industry and continuously improving our technology. We have completed offshore projects in the North Sea, Russia, Asia, Australia, South America and Canada.
Fire protection monitors and nozzles
Our monitors come in a range of sizes, materials and levels of performance, designed to suit any situation or requirement. Our monitors and nozzles are designed with corrosion resistance as one of the primary design goals. In addition, we provide a variety of nozzles that can be used in conjunction with our monitors. Because of this, we can offer superior performance and enhanced reliability.
Our range of monitors is as follows:
- Ensign series: lightweight portable stainless-steel ground monitors
- Ranger series: high-capacity monitors designed for marine environments and hazardous areas, available in hand operated, electric or hydraulic remote control varieties
- Sentinel series: lightweight small-capacity manual monitors made from stainless steel with water oscillating versions manufactured for special applications
- Warden series: cast bronze medium-capacity deck monitors, designed for marine environments; these are available in hand operated, electric or hydraulic remote control or water oscillating varieties
- Commando series: stainless-steel monitors similar to the Warden monitors and available in 316 and 6Mo grades
Our available nozzles include:
- Fog nozzles: designed for long life in harsh environments with minimal maintenance and the longest possible throw
- Foam Lord nozzles: high-performance fog nozzles with foam induction capabilities
- Foam nozzles: aspirating foam nozzles with foam induction capabilities and a very large capacity; they have excellent expansion and drain time characteristics and come with the option for spray deflectors
- Straight jet water nozzle: our patented flow conditioner allows for superior jet stability and range
