The Frontier Hydrant Test Kit uses the pitot method to measure water
flow. This is where the flow is the direct function of the stream
velocity (pressure) through a nozzle tip of known diameter. The pitot
simply measures the flowing water pressure at the point of pick up and
is read in PSI on the pressure gauge. Flow charts are included for
Includes one (1) nozzle tips/inserts - 2.50" (65mm) come standard (other tips are available - see related products).
4", 0-160 psi gauge is standard. The gauge face is marked in large,
easy to read 2-psi increments, and has a ± 1% full scale accuracy
certified by the gauge manufacturer. Gauge swivels 360-degrees for easy
reading and is removable for remote location mounting.
Flow range: 151 - 1,851gpm at 10 - 140 psi range, dependent on tip size selected and water pressure.
