The Hydro-Guard® HG-6 Hydrant Automatic Flushing System takes automatic and programmable flushing capabilities anywhere in the water distribution system where a fire hydrant is available.
The Hydro-Guard® HG-6 Hydrant Automatic Flushing System takes automatic and programmable flushing capabilities anywhere in the water distribution system where a fire hydrant is available. It’s portable and adjustable so it can be connected to the hose nozzle of any brand of hydrant. The benefits and capabilities of this lightweight flushing device are virtually identical to our semi-permanent Hydro-Guard units. It is the perfect solution for temporary or emergency flushing needs.
The HG-6 Signature Model has an integrated multi event programmer for on-site programming. The HG-6 Standard Model uses a removable multi-event handheld programmer that can be used to program multiple Hydro-Guard® flushing units. Either way, the HG-6 flushing unit can be programmed to flush a water line multiple times, several times a day, seven days a week. The flush durations can range from one minute to six hours per flushing event.
Constructed of heavy-gauge powder-coated aluminum for durability, the HG-6 unit is designed to be self supporting.It features vents that direct discharged water equally in two directions, enhancing stability. The venting and the unit’s splash plate help to minimize the potential for ground erosion around the bottom of the HG-6 unit and the hydrant from the discharged water.
To accommodate the variation in fire hydrant heights, the HG-6 unit features a unique adjustable slide panel and hydrant swivel connector. The slide panel allows for eight inches of vertical adjustability to match up with virtually every hydrant in your system, and to assure the unit can be firmly planted for maximum stability.
Since many communities require discharged water to be dechlorinated before it is released into the storm sewer system or surrounding environment, the HG-6 unit has a built-in dechlorination tablet chamber as a standard OEM-installed feature.
