The Hemisphere is a versatile, lightweight, and quick to deploy portable monitor that gives the user the ability to quickly establish water flow in locations that ground monitors cannot. Since the Hemisphere doesn’t rely on gravity for stability, it can be pointed horizontal and down, in addition to up, unlike portable ground monitors. The rotating, swiveling waterway, allows the stream to be pointed in virtually any direction, within a hemispherical range without interrupting water flow. A variety of mounts, including, an I-beam clamp that doubles as a 2" hitch mount, a dedicated hitch mount, and fixed mounts, provide the user the ability to quick attached the monitor, and establish coverage on the fire ground, or in preplanned locations. An integrated, quarter turn, aluminum half ball calve, with locking bail handle, provides shutoff capability. The monitor and valve bodies are hard coat anodized aluminum inside and out with a blue TFT powder coat finish.
