16/02/2022· Section 6.3.2 of NFPA 25 requires an annual inspection of any pressure-restricting devices on hose connections. Pressure-restricting devices limit how far the hose valve may be opened and thus limit the flow and pressure from the valve. Not all standpipe systems have pressure-restricting devices.
06/04/2021· Hose Testing – suitable for closed joint curtain walling and sloped glazing systems (CWCT Standards for Systemised Building Envelopes: 2006, AAMA 501.2-09 & NHBC Standards 2011 Chapter 6.9 S10) or CWCT Section 9, TN 41 and AAMA 501.94 & 501.2-09.
Using this method, hoses due for testing can be easily identified without referring to specific hose nuers (similar to BA cylinder testing ID tags). Electrical tape is overlapped twice around male protective rubber to indie the quarter in which the annual test is due. Note: On forestry hose, tape is loed around the aluminium

HoseCo can offer CAD drawings for all hose asselies.
29/03/2018· Hose pressure testing commonly involves the appliion of stored energy, or pressure, to various asselies, components and parts found within industry standard machinery and equipment. The test is applied to determine the overall strength, functionality and integrity of an individual component. Those responsible for the safety of employees and the functionality …
For cotton-synthetic woven reinforcement fire hose, the load required to compress the hose shall not exceed 100 lb (45.4 kg) for 1 in. (25 mm) hose and 125 lb (56.75 kg) for l’/ 2 (38 mm) hose when two samples are tested for flexibility and compressibility in accordance with Section 6.13.
Committee 45 (TC45) of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in developing both hose product and hose test method standards. Many of the hose test methods standards published by ISO duplie or closely parallel those shown in ASTM D-380. Many are unique and in those cases, the RMA may be able to provide the
Friday late night delivery of Coflexip Choke & Kill hoses needing NDE & boroscope inspected, pressure tested for 24 hours each at 22,500psi and recertified per OEM specifiions, and of course they need it in a hurry! Four hoses and eight clamp sets later, lots of coffee and some sleepy dirty faces and it’s done.
After approximately. one minute, visually inspect hose and couplings for any leaking or unusual conditions. If any unusual. conditions appear contact the appropriate person for disposition of the hose. Hold pressure at the working pressure long enough to check for leaks and perform any measurements. required.
02/10/2013· Alan M. Petrillo. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1962, Standard for the Care, Use, Inspection, Service Testing and Replacement of Fire Hose, Couplings, Nozzles and Fire Hose Appliances (2013 ed.), makes a nuer of changes that affect how fire departments use some of the basic tools and equipment available to them in extinguishing fires.
2. Connecting up to the hose test-rig. Visually inspect hose test-rig for any physical wear and tear or damage, check all valves open and close correctly, the pressure gauge is readable, and the hose test pressure signage is in place. (Example below) Run a high pressure hosereel from the testing pump to the test-rig.
Hose testing is your first line of defense against hose failures, leaks/spills, costly downtime, accidents, injury, OSHA and EPA fines. Skip to content. 800 242 1670 - David Marki. Hose Industry Standards. Our hose testing is performed with state of the art test equipment. All of our procedures follow industry standards documented in the
01/03/2016· The table shows the various thermal test standards, their primary mode of heat transfer, the exposure, and test duration. Different approaches will impact the outcome, thus test results from one standard may not be directly comparable to other standards even for the same hose. In general test methods fall into the following egories:
A. Test hose regularly 1. At least annually 2. After use 3. After recoupling 4. After freezing B. Test procedures 1. Lay out hose with no more than 300 ft. of hose in any one line to be tested Standard for USFS 1 inch hose 4. Threads of common hose types Size Threads per inch Thread type ¾” 11.5 NH or Garden Hose (GH) 1” 11.5 NPSH
This type of hose and coupling can generally be tested, with a simple leak or pressure test, depending on the gas service and overall cost of the hose. It is not typical to put together a test program and individually test hoses at a cost of USD $300-$400 for a hose that only costs USD $1,000 to replace. Large diameter hoses.
The safety risk of hose testing using a fire apparatus stems from the very high horsepower that the apparatus can produce. The second caveat is found in the annex to the standard. It points out the potential for damaging the pump by running the pump at high pressures and no flow. This situation can cause cavitation and high pump temperatures.
5-1.2.1. The service test pressure for hose manufactured in July, 1987 and after to meet the requirements of the 1987 or subsequent editions of NFPA 1961, Standard for Fire Hose, is stenciled on each length of hose and reads “Service Test to_______PSI per NFPA 1962.”.

01/06/2018· The proper method of testing hose is found in National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1962, Standard for the Care, Use, Inspection, Service Testing, and Replacement of Fire Hose, Couplings, Nozzles, and Fire Hose Appliances. There are two procedures that NFPA 1962 specifies: testing using a hose testing machine and using a stationary pump
Test methods for threaded hydraulic fluid power connectors shall conform to SAE standard J1644. This is equivalent to ISO 8434-5 with the exceptionthat the SAE standard includes “repeated assely test” for male flare shaped fittings asseled to tube flare. The same cautions apply to tube testing as with hose asselies.
NFPA 1962 Standard for the Inspection, Care, and use of Fire Hose, Couplings, and Nozzles and the Service Testing of Fire Hose provides requirements and testing procedures for service-testing fire hose at least annually. NFPA 1962 includes procedures for service testing with either a hose testing machine or with a pump on a fire department fire
Frequent testing at a too high test pressure is destructive and can result in the connection between the inlays and the hose being broken. The pressure test must take place with water with the hose outstretched. Allow the pressure to increase to 1.5 times the normal operating pressure. Then inspect the hose and couplings for tightness.
In addition, we can provide the test certifiions and documentation required to show that the tests were performed and that the assely conforms to certain performance criteria. Hose testing and certifiion can be performed at a very reasonable cost. For more information call 800-442-0311 or email us at [email protected]
