4" and 4-1/2" NST Hose Monster®

 
Main Flushing and Fire Flow Testing through the Hydrant's Pumper Nozzle
       
 

The 4" and 4.5" Hose Monster allow flushing and flow testing of large capacity water mains through the hydrant pumper port. The dangerous and destructive force of high velocity water is practically eliminated. Minimize safety concerns such as traffic and pedestrian interference. Discharge damage to landscaping and pavement can be eliminated while at the same time flow rates are measured with Factory Mutual precision.

The Hose Monster is Factory Mutual Approved for flow rate accuracy between approximately 1000 and 2900 GPM. Water flowing into the Hose Monster is measured through the internal FM orifice plate, and then split into two equal and opposing directions, thus canceling the thrust. The orifice plate is not subject to damage from debris as a pitot is. As a testimonial, hundreds of Hose Monsters are in service and to date, not one has been reported damaged by flushing debris.

Stay dry by using the Remote Reader to take pitot readings while standing at the hydrant away from the flowing water.

A 5' or 10' length of hose usually positions the Hose Monster in the street gutter. Any length hose can be used and does not affect the accuracy of flow rate readings. It is recommended that the Hose Monster not be connected directly to the hydrant.
