Hydrant Pit Couplers

The Model 353GF Pressure Control Coupler has been designed and tested qualified to EI 1584 "Four Inch Hydrant System Components and Arrangements", Third Edition. The coupler makes a very robust connection to any 4 inch API style hydrant pit valve or hydrant adapter. This connection greatly exceeds the side-pull requirements of the EI Bulletin 1584. Yet, because of the use of hardened stainless steel balls to make this connection, the coupler can easily turn when connected to remove stress on the intake hose connected to the outlet of the coupler.

Additionally, bleed valves are provided on the side of the pilot block so that entrapped air in the fuel sense hose and hydraulic deadman hose (if Option H is selected) can easily be purged. These bleed valves feature an outlet sized for a 1/8 inch diameter hose that can be slid onto the outlet of the bleed valve to direct the bled fuel into a catch container, thereby eliminating fuel spillage during the purging.

When pressure is applied to the deadman port on the top of the coupler, the pressure regulating valve opens to allow flow into the receiving aircraft. The opening time is controlled by a fixed, non-adjustable orifice, conforming to the requirements of EI 1584. Relieving the deadman pressure causes the Model 353GF Pressure Control Coupler to close.
