Normally, a 2 1/2" Rockwood nozzle is designed to flow approxametley 250 gpm. However, Rockwood did construct their Navy nozzle design with various sizes of discharge orifaces. So the information missing here is what is the discharge oriface size and that is the nozzle operating pressure. Have a great day!

I will get a micromiter and see how big it is. I was woried that it flowed around double the sg60. I looked at the nozzle itself and it had no other inforation on it.
