An active fire system that provides a water deluge in the area of emergency when a certain temperature is reached.Read More
If your building’s active fire systems include water-based extinguishing systems, such as sprinkler or deluge systems, it’s important to make sure the flow of water and the water pressure is maintained to maximise functionality. Fire pumps monitor the flow and pressure of the systems they are attached to and activate when the system pressure drops below the baseline.
Fire pumps are also required to feed hydrant systems. In an ideal situation, these systems are not used for long periods of time so make sure to keep up with fire equipment maintenance and ensure your systems keep working as they are supposed to.
Finding the right space, setup and design for your buildings pump system will ensure best results when installing.
Accessibility for maintenance, functional parts and secure connections are are integral to good fire pump installation.
Fire pumps need to be looped into the overall safety systems of your building by trained professionals to ensure functionality.
There are many different types of fire pump systems but they mostly fall into two main classes, positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps. FES staff will be able to ascertain the best fire pump option for your building. Whether feeding into sprinklers, fire hydrant pumps or all of the above our team will make sure your systems will work when you need them.
Pumps that create incredibly high pressure with more limited flow than the various types of centrifugal pumps
These pumps create pressure through centrifugal force. As there are multiple ways to create the spinning required there are various different types of centrifugal pumps.
