Trident Air Primers are designed to be used on fire pumps rated 1250 GPM [4700 LPM] and more. They require a minimum air compressor size of 13.2 CFM [0.374 Cubic Meters per Minute].
To prime a fire pump using a Trident Air Primer, follow these steps:
- Ensure that the air compressor is turned on and that the air supply hose is connected to the primer.
- Press the switch on the primer to the “Manual Prime” position.
- Hold the switch in the “Manual Prime” position until the pump is primed.
- Once the pump is primed, release the switch and the primer will automatically shut off.
