    2. Fire Hydrants shall meet or exceed ANSI/AWWA C502, latest revision for use in water supply systems.
    3. Rated working pressure shall be 250 psig, test pressure shall be 500 psig.
    4. Hydrants shall be dry-barrel construction closing with and opening against the inlet pressure.
    5. Hydrant main valve closure shall be of the compression type.
    6. The nozzle section, upper and lower stand pipes and hydrant base shall be ductile iron.
    7. The nozzle section shall be capable of rotation and employ the use of four (4) bolts and a stainless steel flange lock ring. Turning the nozzle section to the desired position shall be accomplished without damage to the barrel gaskets.
    8. The hydrant shall have a travel stop nut in the top of the hydrant to limit the travel of the hydrant rod. Hydrant designs that allow the valve bottom to stop against the shoe or employ a stop in the drain mechanism resulting in a bending moment in the rod assembly are not allowed.

    10. When ordered as such, the hydrant shall be UL Listed and FM Approved in allowable configurations.
    11. Hydrant to be supplied with a 2-D bar code, or similar, capable of allowing a seamless enrollment of the manufacturing attributes and hydrant location into a cloud-based GIS application.

    B: DRAINAGE SYSTEM

      1. The main valve opening shall not be less than 5-1/4” and be designed so that removal of all working parts can be accomplished without excavating.
      2. The hydrant shall incorporate a draining system constructed of a bronze threaded into mating threads of bronze.

        1. External surfaces above grade shall be factory coated with an epoxy primer and a two-part polyurethane top coat. Base shall be coated with fusion-bonded-epoxy. 
        2. All bolting below grade shall be Type 304 stainless steel.

        E: FRICTION LOSS

        1. Friction loss shall not exceed 4.0 psig at 1000 GPM through the hydrant 4-1/2 in. pumper nozzle.
        2. Hydrants shall be the 5-¼” Waterous Classic Pacer, by AMERICAN Flow Control.
