According to NAP
Glatts points out that hose materials and manufacturing standards have changed over the years, and those elements mean that hose is of higher quality and can take higher pressures. “The earlier version of the standard required attack hose to be tested to 250 psi and supply line to 200 psi,” he says. “The new standard increases the pressure to 300 psi for attack line and leaves supply line the same. However, if a five-inch supply line becomes the sole source of an attack line, through an aerial, for example, then it has to be tested to 300 psi too.”
he FH-series, a line of fire hose testers, hydrostatic test pumps, offering flow rates up to 26 GPM, and pressures up to 1000 PSI. Designed to safely test fire hose up to 6″ in diameter, the FH-series hose testers meet or exceed test standards set forth by the NFPA (1962) and the RMA. Equipped with a large 2 & 1/2″ swivel inlet providing the ability to quickly fill and bleed the fire hoses through the 1 & 1/2″ heavy duty manifold, with independently controlled stainless steel ball valves. Triplex ceramic plunger pumps with an inner oil bath, ensuring long life and increased stability. Units are available in gas, diesel, electric or pneumatic air driven power sources. Various configurations available in voltage, phase, explosion proof and hertz specifications. “Built to Suit” special order and custom options are available to fit your specific testing needs.
