Fire fighting hydrant, also known as fire hydrant. These hydrants are usually connected to the underground water supply and placed at intervals along the street, allowing firefighters to quickly connect hoses and have a reliable source of water in the event of a fire emergency. The main function of a fire fighting hydrant is to provide firefighters with a reliable source of water when fighting a fire. The hydrant is designed to give firefighters a quick connection to a hose and access to high-pressure water, allowing them to effectively extinguish flames and prevent them from spreading to nearby buildings.
There are two main types of fire hydrants provided by FIRETECH:
• Wet Barrel Hydrant:
This type of hydrant is common in areas where temperatures don't drop below freezing. In this hydrant, the main valve is located at the bottom of the hydrant and the Barrel is always filled with water.
• Dry Barrel Hydrant:
This type of hydrant is commonly found in areas where temperatures drop below freezing. In this type of hydrant, the main valve is located below the frost line and the cylinder is kept dry when not in use to prevent freezing. Only turn on the water supply when using a fire hydrant.
