    Default Cafs/gpm

    How many GPM do you run your CAFS lines at?

    1 3/4" Hose?
    2" Hose?
    2 1/2" Hose?

    Thanks
    This is My Opinion and not of anyone elses!!

    It will depend on your system, how its balanced brand and type of hose nozzle tips, type of foam blanket ect we have an Waterous Eclips.
    On our 13/4 lines we flow about 90psi 125gpm 45scfm the gpm and cfm varies a little depending on tip size,we use smoothbores with 11/8 tips and 13/8 waterways, and saberjets with 15/16 tip.
    no 2 inch
    21/2 inch line at 80psi 190gpm 85 cfm,and the line is easily movable, last barn fire we were at 120psi 240gpm 95cfm on the 21/2 120psi 140gpm 55cfm on 13/4s
    If we want a thick "shaving Cream" on th 13/4 its about 30 gpms 65 cfms @90psi
