A fire hydrant is a connection point by which firefighters can tap into a water supply. It is a visible fixture placed inside or outside a building, parking area, industrial area, mine, roadside, etc. that is connected to the municipal or a private water service network. Fire hydrants are designed to instantly provide the water required by fire fighters to extinguish a fire. Depending on the country, hydrants can be above or below ground. .
Dry fire hydrant
The valve is located below the frost line and connected by a riser to the above-ground portion. A valve rod extends from the valve up through a seal at the top of the hydrant, where it can be operated with the proper wrench. This design is known as a “dry barrel” hydrant, in that the barrel, or vertical body of the hydrant, is normally dry. A drain valve underground opens when the water valve is completely closed; this allows all water to drain from the hydrant body to prevent the hydrant from freezing.
Wet fire hydrant
In warm areas, above-ground hydrants may be used with one or more valves in the above-ground portion. Unlike with cold-weather hydrants, it is possible to turn the water supply on and off to each port. This style is known as a “wet barrel” hydrant. wet barrel hydrants allow single outlets to be opened, requiring somewhat more effort, but simultaneously allowing more flexibility.
A fire monitor is an aimable controllable high-capacity water jet used for manual firefighting or automatic fire protection systems. fire monitor are often fitted to fire boats, tug boats, and atop large fire trucks for use in manual firefighting, where they can be aimed and operated by one firefighter and are used to deliver water or foam from outside the immediate area of the fire. fire monitor is sometimes installed in fixed fire protection systems to protect high hazards, such as aviation hangars and helicopter landing pads. Similarly, facilities with highly flammable material such as oil refineries may have permanently-installed fire monitors. Most apparatus-mounted fire monitors can be directed by a single firefighter, compared to a standard fire hose which normally requires several. fire monitor can be automatically positioned for fixed systems, or may have portable designs. The latter option enables a firefighter to set up the monitor to apply water to a blaze, before leaving it in place to attend to other tasks.
A fire hose is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it. Outdoors, it attaches either to a fire engine or a fire hydrant. Indoors, it can permanently attach to a building’s standpipe or plumbing system. For these Fire Hoses you need a separate box to keep it safe in case of Fire. There are two types of Hose Boxes Single Door Hose Box and Double Door Box. It is also known as Fire Hose Box.
A fire hose (or firehose) is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it. Outdoors, it attaches either to a fire engine, fire hydrant, or a portable fire pump. Indoors, it can permanently attach to a building’s standpipe or plumbing system.
the NFPA 1961 Fire Hose Standard, its bursting pressure is in excess of 110 bar. (11,000kPa; 1600psi) Hose is one of the basic, essential pieces of fire-fighting equipment. It is necessary to convey water either from an open water supply, or pressurized water supply.
The fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control fires, often in emergency situations. Cease Fire & Electrical Services range of fire extinguishers are ideal for use in Commercial & Industrial fire safety and fire safety for Homes & Cars. Ceasefire Fire Extinguishers are highly suitable for fire safety for offices, fire safety for factories and warehouses, fire safety for server rooms, fire safety for hotels & restaurants, fire safety for kitchens, fire safety for schools, fire safety for residential buildings, etc. The six main fire extinguisher types are water, foam, CO2, powder, water mist and wet chemical.
Class A fires (solid combustibles such as wood, paper and textiles). Some water extinguishers are safe on electrical equipment if di-electrically tested. Otherwise, caution is required near electrical equipment, as ordinary water is a conductor.
Class A and B (flammable liquids). Safe on electrical equipment if di-electrically tested
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Class B and electrical equipment
Class A, B, C (flammable gases) and electrical equipment
Class A, B, C and electrical equipment
Class F (deep fat) fires, sometimes class A
In Firefighting, a device for generating and directing a stream of water, foam, powder, or other fire extinguishing substance. The simplest type of nozzle is a tube with a terminal attachment that adjusts the stream.
Firehose nozzles can generate narrow or dispersed streams, and they make it possible to stop the flow without shutting off the supply. A foam stream is obtained from a 16 percent solution of foaming agents in water; the solution is dispersed by a nozzle attachment in a jacket, in which drops are mixed with air ejected by the force of the stream. The output of fire-hose nozzles varies from 1 to 200 kg of fire extinguishing substance per sec. Turret nozzles may be fixed, for example, attached to the roof of a vehicle, the deck of a cutter, or an elevating platform, or they may be transported by some vehicle or by hand. Handheld nozzles are used on fire engines, motor-operated pumps, and hose stations inside buildings. Fire hose nozzles are attached to hose lines by means of quick-attachment heads.
