Municipalities and firefighters have become more worried regarding the functioning of fire hydrants. Testing of the hydrant is conducted to check if water is present and identify flaws in the system. The video below will demonstrate how to conduct a flow test on hydrants.
Hydrants are a vital part of our infrastructure. They serve as crucial fire fighting tools. While they offer emergency services all year round They are not functional when there is a fire or disaster. That’s why a hydrant flow test is performed in order to ensure that the hydrant operates in a proper manner. If the hydrant is not able to perform, it must be addressed immediately.
In the process of setting up the equipment when you are setting up the equipment, connect the hose to the reader on the remote. Utilize a wrench or a spanner to tighten up the gauge cap. The gauge should be connected to the an amount of static pressure. And then, close the valve. Note the static pressure. To allow water to flow, simply open the gate valve. The gauge will be used to monitor the flow rate and pressure of the system. To complete the experiment close the gate valve. b9hd4s3ftl.
