What is the working pressure of a hose reel?

In Malaysia, the working pressure of a hose reel is typically 12 bar, with a test pressure of 18 bar. This means that the hose reel can withstand a maximum pressure of 18 bar without bursting, but it is designed to operate at a pressure of 12 bar.

The minimum pressure for a hose reel is typically 2 bar, which is the minimum pressure required to ensure that the water flows freely from the hose.

How to test a fire hose pressure?

Testing the pressure of a fire hose is an important procedure to ensure its reliability during firefighting operations. Here are the general steps involved in testing the pressure of a fire hose:

  1. Disconnect the fire hose from the water source.
  2. Attach the pressure test kit to the end of the fire hose.
  3. Fill the fire hose with water.
  4. Turn on the pressure test kit and gradually increase the pressure until it reaches the required test pressure.
  5. Hold the pressure for a period of time, usually 10 minutes.
  6. If the pressure drops during the test, the fire hose is not holding pressure and will need to be replaced.
  7. Once the test is complete, turn off the pressure test kit and disconnect the fire hose.
