FDC Fire Department Connections on a Fire Water Tank
Pioneer Water Tanks provide a water supply where municipal water systems or adequate water flow aren’t available. Pioneer Water Tanks are configurable for fire protection with fire department connection options.
The local fire department is typically the authority that determines the STORZ connection outlet and fire department connection size. Fire trucks can connect to the appropriate FDC, or the tank can be configured to supply a fire sprinkler system. The FDC is for the fire department to supplement the pressure to the sprinkler system or provide the water for a standpipe system.
Pioneer Water Tanks offer fire connection options that comply with AHJ requirements.
The cap option for the FDC is also typically determined by the local fire department. Having a cap in place helps to keep debris out of the pipes. The cap options include threaded, a locking type, or a breakaway.
The tank body construction of Pioneer Water Tanks is ZINCALUME® steel. ZINCALUME® steel with Activate® technology is aluminum, zinc, and magnesium alloy coated steel. ZINCALUME® steel Pioneer Water Tanks are tested and proven to withstand fire immersion. This provides a consistent water supply during and after a fire emergency.
Pioneer Water Tanks provide a reserve water supply in case of an emergency and for daily domestic use.
