A well designed and a well laid out Hydrant System forms the backbone of the entire fire fighting system. Hydrant Fire Protection System is designed to fight fire of huge proportions, in all classes of risks. It is designed to be in operation even if a part of the affected structure collapses.
The fire hydrant system like the portable fire Extinguishers basically uses water as extinguisher. In certain types of fires, special branch pipes are used to deliver a type Foam in conjunction. A raging fire without a proper extinguishing system can be devastating. Hence there is an emphasis on provision of a fire hydrant system. In the fire hydrant system the water in large quantum is pumped continuously with tremendous force and velocity so as to reach the seat of fire. Hydrant valves are located at strategic points. These work as outlets of water through the fire Hose.
