Working principle of fire pumps
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 prior to the arrive of fire-fighters.
A fire pump system is comprised of the pump, the motor (or driver) and the controller. Pipework is also integrated to carry the water throughout the premises. 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. In most instances, these systems are powered by diesel fuel as electricity can be cut during fires. This water is supplied by the pump and is distributed through the sprinkler system and hose standpipes.
Depending on your application and site requirements, custom packages can be designed and commissioned.
