FIRE PUMP SYSTEM
Just as a Candle cannot burn without fire
The buildings cannot live without a fire alarm
Standard Fire Pump Systems
A fire-fighting pump is a centrifugal pump which is used for pumping fire-fighting water. Fire-fighting pumps can be designed for transportable use for example , on fire-fighting vehicles or as portable fire pumps or for stationary use like hydrants, sprinkler systems Various types of fire pumps are used in fire protection systems. Types of fire pumps include: horizontal split case, vertical split case, vertical in-line, vertical turbine, and end suction. These fire pumps may be powered by an electric motor or diesel engine and on rare occasion powered by a steam turbine.
Well maintained automatic fire pump systems are reliable and play a key role in reducing death rates and property damage during fire emergencies. Correct installation and Regular inspection and testing goes a long way toward making sure your fire pump offers you full fire protection.
Like all other equipment, fire pumps weaken over time. Fire pumps are also vulnerable to external factors such as corrosive environments, tampering, accidental damage and careless use. fire pump inspection is assure your fire pump’s couplings are aligned properly. There are many factors that can affect alignment, including thermal expansion and equipment maintenance. Couplings that are misaligned are far more likely to fail and could cause disruption of service.
Circulation relief valves are usually mounted on the neck of the discharge flange, and prevent the fire pump from overheating when the pump is operating at shutoff condition. The valve should be inspected weekly and should discharge to a drain. Visual inspection of the fire pump is critical because if the valve fails to operate, the fire pump could overheat at a time when it is needed most.
Electric fire pump systems should be tested for 10 minutes, while diesel fire pump systems should be tested for 30 minutes. Annual testing is conducted at minimum, rated, and peak load to ensure that the fire pumps will work optimally under all of these conditions. One of the most common maintenance measures is proper bearing lubrication. As a general rule, an ounce of grease should be added to the bearings every 3 –6 months, and care should be taken to not add too much grease.
