WORKING PRINCIPLE

Fire pumps are critical in distributing water through sprinkler systems, where water pressure from water mains and fire fighting equipment cannot reach. Alternatively, in lower set buildings, fire pumps are critical in containing the fire.

A fire pump system is comprised of the pump, the motor (or driver) and the controller. This system receives water from either an underground water supply or a water tank, lake or reservoir, and is powered by electricity or diesel fuel. This water is supplied by the pump and distributes water through the sprinkler system and hose standpipes. 

Depending on your application and site requirements, custom packages can be designed and commissioned. 

APPLICATIONS

Fire pumps are commonly found in mining, industrial and building services. They are an integral requirement for safety.
