Fire Pumps

A fire pump is part of a building's sprinkler system providing water flow to the fire sprinklers in the event of a fire by pumping it from the building's water supply. Fire Pumps can be powered by a diesel engines, electric motors or steam turbines and come in all sizes depending on the requirements of individual sprinkler systems. Types of fire pumps include horizontal split case, vertical split case, vertical inline, vertical turbine and end suction pumps.

An end suction pump is a fire pump used as part of buildings sprinkler system. The end suction pump is a suction pressure pump with its suction nozzle on the opposite side of the casing from the stuffing box, with the face of the suction nozzle perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the shaft.

Fire pump controllers control the fire pumps that provide the water supply to a buildings sprinkler system. Fire pump controllers need to be well built and reliable so they can successfully operate during an emergency situation or fire.

An in-line pump is a vertical fire pump used as part of a buildings sprinkler system. In-line pumps are mostly used when lower flow ranges are needed, lengthening the pumps service life and minimising energy consumption. In-Line fire pumps are easy to install as the inlet and outlet are on a common centre line.

A split case pump is a fire pump used as part of a buildings sprinkler system. Split case fire pumps are mostly horizontal pumps but can also be vertical. They are highly efficient units and their simple, split case design allows for in-line service without disturbing the piping.

A turbine pump is a versatile fire pump that is designed to successfully operate in a multitude of water sources from wells to oceans.  Vertical turbine pumps offer the best technical pumping solution for fire protection when the pump's water source is below ground or at deck level.
