Functionality and reliability are of critical importance at sea. For this reason, shipbuilders only work with the best suppliers. Renowned shipyards rely on the Lechler brand when it comes to nozzles and spray systems.
The main applications are cleaning, exhaust cooling and fire protection. For the military, the range of applications extends to ABC, nuclear radiation, heat radiation protection and decontamination.
In some cases, special nozzles and systems were developed for these applications.

|The new rotating foam extinguishing nozzle has been designed and developed to meet exacting fire protection requirements for landing decks.
The industry's trend towards ships with smaller crews and unmanned platforms makes this equipment essential for maintaining the safety of these critical areas.
|How it works
The liquid pressure behind the nozzle allows the baffle plate to lift and releases rotational nozzle from the deck. The rotational action of the nozzles enables three spray jets to be propelled up to a height of five meters increasing the overall coverage and producing a carpet of protective foam over the deck area and any
large pieces of equipment.
If the pop-up rotor is blocked, the liquid will pass the nozzle by the permanent open slots on top side. The special slot design enables different liquid exit angles to achive the best fire fighting function.
