    The max operating flow is solved for by the following equation:. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent. Next, determine the absolute value of the difference in elevation between hydrant 1 and the location. News Article 05 - 10 - Hydrant flow and pressure compliance Hydrant flow and pressure compliance is mandatory. Skip to main content. We require a site plan which indicates the position of the hydrants, whereafter we conduct a physical site inspection to ensure that all hydrants are readily accessible and that they would be available in the event of a fire situation. Note : The appended figures for axle loading are characteristic values.

    1 A uniform rating of hydrants is achieved by measuring the flow rate of water at a specified residual pressure. A residual pressure of bar (20 psi) is.However, if the land is later developed for new buildings or usages, provision of hydrant would be required.

    Fire hydrants are flow-tested at a residual pressure of 20 psi; therefore, firefighters should understand the typical flow rates of fire.Simultaneous hydrant operation Your system design must allow all hydrants, including the most hydraulically disadvantaged, to operate at the required minimum flow rate.

    The flow rate and residual pressure may increase due to the number of hydrants and installed positions and the mains pressure or pumping requirements.
