After custom engineering a new suction and discharge elbow for use on New York Fire Department fireboats, Kochek Co. has introduced the specialty product to broader markets. The Connecticut-based manufacturer of high-quality water flow products and connections designed the product to FDNY specifications. Featuring a stationary flange, the 90-degree elbow incorporates a full-time swivel and locking knob. Such universal adaptability makes the new product well-suited for applications beyond its prototype. The new adapter consists of a 6-inch storz head and 6-inch stainless-steel flange and may also be ordered with threaded heads. It’s available in Kochek’s exclusive Micralox anodized coating which produces long-lasting resistance to abrasion, chemical and salt corrosion. Micralox is available in several color options.
