What is a Fire Hose Valve?

A hydrant or hosevalve is used to control the flow of water at the scene of a fire or in an industrial setting. Different applications call for different fire hose valves, including deluge and dry riser valve types. Other common types of hose valves include:

  • Angle Valves – Used in conjunction with rack hose assemblies and automatically drains and vents.
  • Ball Valves– Used in pumper discharges, gated wyes, and fire pump piping systems.
  • Gate Valves– Used to control flow from a fire hydrant or on large pump intakes.

Fire hose valves and wyes also use different thread configurations that are important to keep in mind when purchasing to ensure it is compatible with your hose. These thread configurations are:

  • NH or NST – National Hose or National Standard Thread
  • NPSH or IPT – National Pipe Straight Hose or Iron Pipe Thread
  • NPT – National Pipe Tapered
