KHW3 KOCHEK SMALL HOSE WASHER
Permits washing of fire hose without the labor of brushing the hose.
Two cone-shaped pressure jets wash the hose twice during each application. The impact of the pressure jets from two annular gaps pulls the hose through the washer (some hand guidance may be needed).
The water flow gaps are set at the factory if more or less is needed use provided allen wrenches to adjust. The small allen screw increases/decreases water flow while the larger allen screws lock the position.

- Pass the hose through the washer orifice into the washer, the pressure of the water jets will aid in pulling the hose line through the washer.
