Portable Fire Pump – What Is It?
Essentially, a fire fighting pump is a device that takes available water and increases the pressure. This is done to ensure that the sprinkler system will be able to distribute water evenly throughout the entire building or space. Whether it’s for use in large commercial spaces or high-rise buildings, this component is vital to keep people safe in the event of an emergency.
Each portable fire pump is designed with ease of operation and maintenance in mind. They all feature a single stage low-maintenance gearbox for reduced maintenance and more efficient performance. They are also compliant with NFPA 25 guidelines for periodic inspection and testing. This includes a monthly churn test and an annual flow test.
