1″ TANK DRAIN
There shall be a 1″ tank drain to the rear side of the tank with a brass plug.
TANK MOUNTING BLOCKS
The cover shall incorporate two (2) booster reel mounting blocks that shall accommodate two (2) each sliding nut fasteners. These 4″ large mounting blocks shall be welded to the covers running from the rear edge of the tank forward to the front edge.
There shall be a full width skid base manufactured of 3/4″ PT2E polypropylene welded to the tank. This base shall be 48″ wide by 96″ long and shall extend 34″ past the tank in the rear to allow for pump mounting. The pump mounting area shall be supported by ½” PT2E polypropylene gussets approximately 15″ high by 32″ long. The gussets shall be equipped with 2″ holes to assist in lifting the unit. The mounts shall allow for the truck to be secured directly to a truck bed without the need for any skid frame work underneath.
Tank will be baffled in accordance with latest NFPA requirements.
The pump shall be a CET DI-PFP-6hpHND-EM-Twin two (2) stage centrifugal pump, bolted directly to the engine, with a 1.5″ NPT suction inlet, two (2) 1″ NPT discharge outlets and one (1) 1.5″ NPT discharge outlet.
The pump piping shall be flexible to prevent any breakage caused by vibration.
The pump shall be capable of a maximum discharge volume of 80 GPM. at 10 PSI, and a maximum discharge pressure of 150 PSI while pumping 20 GPM. In the center of the performance curve, the pump shall be capable of pumping 50 GPM at 100 PSI.
The pump shall be driven by a 4-stroke Honda gasoline powered, 6.5 horsepower single cylinder engine. The engine shall be air cooled, 12 volt electric start with recoil backup. The engine shall be fueled from a 1.5 gallon fuel tank which is to be mounted on the engine. The engine shall be connected with a quick disconnect weather proof style connection.
A control panel shall be supplied and installed on the pump. The controls shall consist of a master switch, master discharge pressure gauge and panel light for night operations.
SELF PRIMING SYSTEM
The pump engine shall be equipped with a self priming system capable of 10′ – 15′ lift for fast positive priming.
All piping on the suction side shall be made of steel (welded joints) schedule 40. The suction piping, the pump and the discharge shall be tested to 400 PSI.
The suction piping shall consist of a 2.5″ tank to pump line with a 2.5″ flexible rubber hump hose to minimize flex and vibration between the pump and the tank.
Between the tank and the pump there shall be a 2.5″ industrial valve. This valve shall remain open to pump from the tank. This pipe shall have a tee into the suction side of the pump, and shall continue to the rear of the truck for overboard suction. The overboard suction connection shall have a 2.5″ NST male adapter and a 2.5″ NSTF cap with retaining cable.
Other openings will be utilized accordingly when pre-connects, booster reels and other accessories that require pressurized water are specified.
All valves larger than 1″ shall be a fire service type drop out style ball valve which shall have a hard-coated anodized, high-strength, light-weight aluminum alloy body with rugged stainless steel ball and two PTFE seats.
The valves shall be capable of bi-directional flow with a minimum working pressure rating of 250 psig.
All stainless steel parts shall be made from 300 series material. The valves shall NOT require lubrication of the seats or any other internal waterway component and shall be capable of swinging out of the attached waterway plumbing for easy maintenance, with the removal of six (6) to eight (8) bolts.
Any required valve 1″ or smaller, unless otherwise specified, shall be a standard plumbing style industrial ball valve.
DISCHARGES TO REAR OF UNIT
A 1 1/2″ fire grade valve drop out style with handle and 1 1/2″ NSTM threads shall be furnished with a cap and chain.
There shall be one (1) 1″ Industrial Ball valve plumbed via high pressure hose from the manifold to the Tank Fill inlet noted on the tank for the purpose of filling the tank and re-circulating water during stagnant pump operations.
The water tank shall be supllied with one (1) 1.5” pre-connect tray. The pre-connect tray shall be constructed of 1/2” polypropylene and shall be approximately 8” wide x 8” high x 48” long. The pre-connect tray shall be constructed in the same manner and with the same materials as the tank. The pre-connect tray shall welded mounted to the top of the tank and positioned transversely to the tank.
