The single jacket will be woven evenly and be free of defects, including knots lumps or unsightly disfigurations that could jeopardize the integrity of the hose assembly. The warp yarn shall consist of staple polyester yarn. The use of filament or entangled yarn is expressly forbidden due to the lack of inherent abrasion resistance. The filler yarns shall be constructed of high strength, low elongation, filament polyester to reduce weight and increase flexibility.
The lining shall be a single-ply extrusion of EPDM Polymer which naturally resists ozone and oxidation. This material shall adhere to the jacket by vulcanization process to prevent delaminating and/or hydrolysis. Neoprene or other rubber products that give off chlorine or other toxic gases shall not be acceptable.
Hydrostatic tests shall be conducted on hose equipped with the couplings to be delivered in accordance with NFPA 1961. Each length of hose is to be subjected to a hydrostatic proof test pressure on 500 psi for at least 15 seconds and not more than 1 minute. Higher test pressures which may weaken the hose are expressly forbidden. Service test pressure shall pass 250 PSI. Curve and straight burst testing shall 900 PSI. All testing shall be in accordance with NFPA 1962.
Internal expansion ring threaded couplings or as required by purchaser.
Method of Testing
All measurements and tests to determine compliance of the fire hose with the specified requirements shall be made in accordance with ASTM D 380-87, “Standard Test Methods for Rubber Hose”, except otherwise specified. All tests shall be conducted at the point of manufacture, or at a laboratory equipped for such testing. All tests shall be performed as specified in NFPA 1961 (Current Edition). Hydrostatic tests shall be conducted under controlled conditions employing equipment capable of supplying a uniform pressure.
The manufacturer warrants the hose to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year. This warranty shall provide for the repair or replacement of hose and couplings proven to have failed due to faulty material or workmanship
