Title: Firefighting monitor apparatus

Abstract: A fire fighting monitor apparatus has a casing having a main inlet pipe for receiving water under pressure from a water source and a plurality of outlet arms extending from the inlet pie. Each of the outlet arms has an elbow formed therein. The casing has a main rotary joint formed therein for rotating the casing and the plurality of outlet arms. Each outlet arm has an outlet arm rotary joint therein positioned between the main inlet pipe and the outlet arm elbow for rotating a portion of each casing outlet arm. A swiveling nozzle is coupled to each outlet arm for directing water from each outlet arm separately. Each swiveling nozzle has a ball joint having a passageway therethrough and having a threaded collar thereover for tightening the swiveled nozzle into any outlet position desired. The main rotary joint has an annular rack gear engaging a worm gear having a handle thereon for rotating the main inlet pipe and the plurality of outlet nozzles. Each outlet arm rotary joint has an annular rack gear engaging a worm gear which annular gear has a handle mounted thereon for rotating each outlet arm to rotate the swiveling nozzle of each outlet arm so that a fire fighting monitor allows separate fluid streams of controlled water dispersion patterns to provide greater control of the output from the fire fighting monitor.
