Kochek’s Strainers, Elbows Test at the Top

Putnam, CTKochek Company, LLC has posted on its Web site white papers detailing the latest independent flow test results of multiple brands of fire hose, strainers, and elbows. Conducted by GBW Associates, LLC and Water Supply Innovations, LLC, test conditions were closely monitored for consistency and elimination of variables. Kochek lightweight suction hose was used as a constant in each testing category. Kochek’s low-level, ice, floating, box, and barrel strainers and 90° suction elbows performed at or near the top of all test subjects. Description of each test’s flow speed, motor speed, and vacuum readings as well as official summaries of independent test findings may be found at www.kochek.com.
