Fire fighting hydrant system
Fire Fighting Hydrant Systems are the most commonly used systems, in many residential and industrial projects. Fire Hydrant Systems form the basis, of Fire Protection Systems. Fire Hydrant System installation is relatively easy.
A special well is dug, called “Fire Well”, where water is stored throughout the year for 365days. This water well is connected to the pump room. From the pump room, there are two to three main pipes. These pipes form a network of pipes that covers the factory compound and the factory. The pump has the work, of continuously filling all the pipes connected with water under pressure. The pressure is nearly 7bar to 10bar.
When a fire is seen by a person, he activates the hydrant system and points it in the direction of the fire. A very strong flow of water now, attacks the fire and the fire is eventually extinguished. The pump continuously pumps the water to maintain the system pressure.
