Description

From the conclusions:'Two of the four chemicals (polymers) and support equipment tested were found acceptable for use by the Forest Service-the Hexcel Hydropak and the Nalco polymer feed system. Use of the Hecel or Nalco system in a horizontal hose lay will, in effect, allow the length to be doubled while retaining identical water flow and pressure charcteristics.'
