Standpipes & Hydrant Key

Standpipes & Hydrant Key

UK MADE PRODUCTS

Standpipes are used to connect into a pressurised water mains supply via underground valve hydrants. The models shown below are intended for use by experienced fire brigade personnel only. Other users should employ anti-siphon to ensure that there is no contamination of the water mains.

The standpipe inlet or base can be made to suit a variety of hydrant connections as follows:-

1) Female hydrant round thread (BS 750).
2) Female hydrant vee thread.
3) Male Belfast hydrant vee thread.
4) Bayonet hydrant connection.
5) Ball hydrant connection.

The standard shaft length is 30 but this can be altered to suit special requirements. The standpipe outlet is 2 instantaneous female fitting with single twist release mechanism suitable for connecting to a standard instantaneous male half coupling. The standpipe head, which contains the outlets, may be either a single or a double and may be connected to the shaft either by an instantaneous double pull release (plug-in) or a swivel connection. With the instantaneous connection the head may be removed but with the swivel type it is an integral part of the standpipe. Double heads are supplied with one blanking plug and single heads with none.
When ordering a standpipe the following is required: - hydrant connection type, shaft length, instantaneous or swivel connection between head and shaft, double or single head, polished or unpolished.
