Understanding Fire Hydrants

A fire hydrant system installation is done strategically in designated locations, serving as a vital resource for firefighters to access water instantly during emergencies. Here’s a breakdown of how fire hydrants function:

1. Water Source:Fire hydrants are connected to the building or complex’s firefighting water pump supply, ensuring a steady flow of water to suppress and extinguish fires promptly.

2. Firefighting Access:When a fire erupts, firefighters locate the nearest hydrant, attach hoses, and operate the hydrant valve to initiate water flow.

3. Water Flow:Pressurized water is pumped from the underground water tank to the fire hydrant by firefighting pumps, enabling firefighters to combat the fire effectively.

Components of a Fire Hydrant System

1. Hydrant Post: Above-ground hydrants are pillar-type structures featuring a valve-controlled pipe through which water flows from the main water line.

2. Hydrant Valve: This specialized valve allows for a large flow of water and facilitates quick coupling of canvas hoses. Firefighters access water by opening the valve.

3.Riser Pipe: In high-rise buildings, the hydrant valve connects to the fire water mains line via a riser pipe typically situated in the fire shaft.

4. Canvas Hoses: Rubber-lined canvas hoses, fixed onto the hydrant valve or coupled together, enable water to be directed from the hydrant to the fire location.

5. Nozzle: The nozzle, affixed at the end of the canvas pipe, enables firefighters to direct water flow accurately onto the fire, ensuring a steady stream of water.

Types of Fire Hydrants

1. Wet Hydrants: Widely used in high-rises, businesses, and industries, wet hydrants receive water directly from the fire mains, maintaining high-pressure water at all times.

2. Dry Hydrants: Ideal for cold regions, dry hydrants remain dry until the hydrant valve is operated, preventing water from freezing within the hydrants.
