Hy-Ram Sponsor Severn Trent Derby North FC


Hy-Ram were the proud sponsors of Derby North FC as they took on Notts N.E. FC at Hucknall Town’s Watnall Road Stadium on the 27th July. This match was part of a series of events arranged by Distribution Manager Dave Brunton to raise money for two worthwhile good causes: Children with Cancer; and Help for Heroes.

The two Severn Trent Water teams played well despite the heat, with DNFC edging it with a deserved 3-1 victory.

Hi-Flow MkIII Approved by Severn Trent Water

thrubore Hy-Ram are proud to announce that the new Hi-Flow MkIII has been approved by Severn Trent Water’s New Products Group (Water), in support of Severn Trent’s move to the installation of through bore hydrants during works across the Network.

With the advent of ‘through bore’ fire hydrants, Hy-Ram introduce the NEW Hi-Flow Drilling Saddle for pipe sizes 3”NB to 12”NB complete with PN16 – 80mm flanged outlet and 80mm clear bore.

Following the initial concept of simplicity and ‘one fitting does all’ the Hi-Flow remains a single fitting, there is no need for doubling up or using two fittings… adding in an extra flanged joint and greater potential for leaks…

Key benefits of the NEW Series III…

  • Clear 80mm vertical bore
  • ‘Solid’ Under-Clamp ensuring good connection to the main
  • The Hi-Flow bolts directly to the main and offers a low ‘stack height’
  • No retraining is required for the Series III… the installation method and drilling equipment remains the same
  • Existing Drilling Equipment can be used with no modifications
  • Pressure rating 16 bar, WRAS approved components and coating
