Fire Pumps

A fire pump is a part of a fire sprinkler system’s water supply and can be powered by electricity or diesel. 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 risers and hose standpipes. A fire pump is tested and listed for its use specifically for fire service by a third-party testing and listing agency, such as UL or FM Global.

Fire Pumps are mostly a combination of Diesel, Electric and Jockey pumps and are needed for providing large volume of pressurized water to sprinkler systems and hose reels. Types of pumps used for fire service include: horizontal split case, vertical split case, vertical inline, vertical turbine, and end suction

FSA Technical Services LLC evaluates the pump capacity requirements through hydraulic calculations, designs, supplies, and installs fire pumps according to NFPA 20 standards and in full compliance with the Civil Defense requirements.

This package consists of one main pump coupled to an electric motor, one stand-by pump coupled to a diesel engine, a jockey pump, a pressure vessel, the controller(s) for manual or automatic operation of the system, and standard accessories on the base frame(s). The fire pump shall be End Suction or Single Stage Horizontal Split Case or Horizontal Multi-Stage Centrifugal type depending on the system capacity and head requirements. The electric motor is squirrel cage induction type and foot mounted suitable for 3 phase power supply, with required horsepower rating. The electric fire pump is flexibly coupled to the motor. The diesel engine is fixed on the base with anti-vibration rubber pads and the pump is directly coupled to a diesel engine through flexible coupling, and according to the power output of the engine, the electrical system can be either 12V or 24V DC.
