HYDRANTS

 

Fire field logistics are ranked nearly as high as equipment on hand and personnel available when facing industrial responses. Large fires require large volumes of water, which sometimes require multiple large diameter water supply hoses. The most convenient, reliable, and safest means of distributing large volumes of water over an entire facility is by constructing underground water delivery systems with above ground hydrant manifolds. These hydrant manifolds are then used in conjunction with large diameter water supply hose to supply the necessary water to pumps, fire nozzles, and foam proportioning equipment.

Williams Fire and Hazard Control is now developing a line of new hydrant manifolds with an incorporated 360 degree rotating swivel built into the main riser of the unit. This swivel will allow the first responders to reposition the hydrant in the most advantageous direction depending on the location of the hazard and lock it into place using onboard swivel lock.

Custom Hydrants

Pearl Fire build hydrants to suit your requirements.  Our Project teams work closely with our engineers to ensure Australian Standards for Hydrants are met on every order (N.B we can engineer Hydrants to suit any international standard or compliance). We will provide you with all documentation requirements upon request*.  Some of the documentation examples we can assist you with include:

  •  Procedures for NDE and pressure testing of fabricated piping

  •  Manufacturing Record Book 

  •  Design Analysis and calculations

  •  General Arrangement Drawings

  •  Verification Records of Design and Fabrication

  •  Material Certificates and Traceability List

  •  Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS)

  •  Welding Procedure Qualification Records (WPQR)

  •  Welder performance qualifications

  •  Weld Mapping

  •  NDE operator qualifications

  •  Non Destructive Examination (NDE) Reports

  •  Pressure Test Reports

  •  Surface Preparation and Painting Report

  •  Heat treatment and/or post weld heat treatment information including applicable stress-relieving procedures

  •  Drawing Index and Drawings

  •  Data Sheets

  •  Inspection and Test Plans

Swivel Hydrants

Fire field logistics are ranked nearly as high as equipment on hand and personnel available when facing industrial responses. Large fires require large volumes of water, which sometimes require multiple large diameter water supply hoses. The most convenient, reliable, and safest means of distributing large volumes of water over an entire facility is by constructing underground water delivery systems with above ground hydrant manifolds. These hydrant manifolds are then used in conjunction with large diameter water supply hose to supply the necessary water to pumps, fire nozzles, and foam proportioning equipment. This line of new hydrant manifolds includes an incorporated 360 degree rotating swivel built into the main riser of the unit. This swivel will allow the first responders to reposition the hydrant in the most advantageous direction depending on the location of the hazard and lock it into place using on-board swivel lock. 

 

Design Benefits 

  •  Reduction in total hose required due to eliminating initial bend radius 

  •  Reduction in road blockage due to initial hose bends running across roadways 

  •  Conservation of pressure due to shorter hoses needed 

  •  Suitable for highly congested areas (vertical design) 

  •  Suitable for a wide range of flows up to 10,000gpm 

  •  Built with the industrial fire fighter in mind 

  •  Robust design using swivels capable of supporting several tons of side load 

  •  Fully serviceable with integrated swivel grease zerks 

  •  By more efficiently supplying water, swivel hydrants could reduce the number of necessary hydrant locations by as much as 50% (depending on hydrant layout and size)

 

Available Design Choices*

  •  Various material designs (carbon steel, 304L stainless steel, 316L stainless steel) 

  •  Various inlet and riser sizes (4”, 6”, 8”, 10” available now, 12” in development) 

  •  Various header designs (vertical stack, traditional Tee, or single 90* outlet) 

  •  Various discharge options (NST, BSP, Storz, etc.) 

  •  Various discharge sizes (1-1/2” – 12”) 

  •  Integrated swivel lock standard to prevent movement after positioning 

  •  Available with discharge valves, check valves, caps, or pressure gauges 

  •  Available with integrated monitor mount 

  •  Available with integrated automatic hydrant drain valve (below swivel) 

  •  Available with hydrant inlet valve (between hydrant swivel and header connection)

* Please ask us about changes to design choices, or alternate designs we can support you with. Contact us for more information.
