This hydrant valve allows you to provide water to the fire at hydrant pressure, while waiting for a second pumper to hook up and increase flow and pressure.

 

4-Way Hydrant Valve features include:

 

  • Flow efficient 3-1/2'' waterway
  • 75 psi maximum pressure differential during changeover
  •  300 psi maximum operating pressure
  • 1000 GPM maximum flow when changing ball position

 

How it Works:

 

Step 1 Attach the 4-Way Hydrant Valve to the hydrant and forward lay to the engine at fire scene.

 

Step 2 Attach a hose from the 4-Way Hydrant Valve to the intake on the engine at the hydrant

 

Step 3 Attach a hose from the discharge on the engine at hydrant to the 4-Way Hydrant Valve inlet. Establish re-circulating flow at hydrant pressure.

 

Step 4 Rotate the handwheel on top of the 4-Way Hydrant Valve to introduce pressurized flow from the engine at the hydrant to the engine at the fire scene. Increase pressure on the pumper to increase flow as required.

 

* Hydrant Inlet is 4-1/2" NH.  Please call to place order for other sizes.
