What is a fire pump?
Fire pumps are one of the most important components of a property’s fire protection system. It is the pressure-increasing component of the water supply for fixed fire suppression systems like fire sprinklers, standpipes, etc.
A fire pump set consists of one main pump that is connected to an electric motor, a stand-by pump connected to a diesel engine, jockey pump, pressure vessel, controller for manual or automatic operation of the system and the other standard accessories that are mounted on the base frame of the pump set.
How do fire pumps work?
The fire pump is part of the fire sprinkler system. It receives water from either an underground water supply or water tank, reservoir, lake, etc. It is powered by either electricity or diesel fuel. The high pressure supplied by the pump distributes water through the sprinkler system and hose standpipes.
Various Types of Fire Pumps Available
Different properties require different types of fire pumps. Cease Fire Solutions provides a wide range of fire pumps to suit your particular needs.
End Suction Pumps: It is a type of centrifugal pump that has a casing with the suction on one end of it and the discharge on the top. They usually have only one impeller. End suction pumps are one of the most common and cost-effective centrifugal pumps.
Horizontal Split Case Pumps: This is another type of centrifugal pump in which the casing is split into two separate chambers horizontally. The pump has suction and discharge connections in the lower half of the casing and opposite each other. Horizontal split case pumps are economical for higher flow applications are easy to maintain as well. They also last longer and are available in various sizes.
Vertical Turbine Pumps: This is a specialized centrifugal pump that is used to move water from a well or a reservoir or any water body that is deep underground. It is also known as a deep well turbine pump or lineshaft turbine pump. In vertical turbine pumps, the motor is located above ground and is connected to impellers at the bottom of the pump by a long vertical shaft.
