The installation of a fire pump system in a commercial or industrial property is a common occurrence. Using a fire pump system may allow a property to be developed where sufficient water pressure is not available.
A fire Electric Driven pump is a part of a fire sprinkler system's water supply and powered by electric. The pump intake is either connected to the public underground water supply piping, or a static water source (e.g., tank, reservoir, lake). The pump provides water flow at a higher pressure to the sprinkler system rises and hose standpipes. Fire pumps function either by an electric motor or a Electric Driven engine, or, occasionally a steam turbine. The fire pump starts when the pressure in the fire sprinkler system drops below a threshold. The sprinkler system pressure drops significantly when one or more fire sprinklers are exposed to heat above their design temperature, and opens, releasing water. Alternately, other fire hoses reels or other firefighting connections are opened, causing a pressure drop in the fire fighting main. The Electric Driven Main Pump's function is to START automatically when a hydrant valve or sprinkler is activated and to provide adequate quantity of water.Download Now
