Dry barrel fire hydrants are primarily designed for areas with frost, where the water main is located below the ground frost zone. AVK dry barrel fire hydrants meet or exceed AWWA C-502 and are UL/ULC listed and FM approved. They are designed for high performance, easy repair and minimum end user costs for labor and inventory.
AVK dry barrel hydrants are designed with a traffic flange for easy repair after collision. The hydrant's main valve has a ductile iron core which is fully encapsulated in EPDM rubber. The nozzle section can be rotated 360 degrees. The upper section of the hydrant is repairable under pressure.
