Fire pumps are systems that essentially provide the water that a sprinkler system requires. They are utilized when the municipal water system cannot provide the right amount of pressure or quantity of water to meet the needs of the fire sprinkler/standpipe system, meaning that the pressure drops below its threshold.
Because of the vital role fire pumps have in fire protection, the professionals at Lund Fire Products provide fire pump testing and maintenance in the NYC metropolitan area.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), insurance carriers and local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) endorse or require the inspection, testing and maintenance of water-based protection systems, such as fire pumps, by trained professionals.
Fire pumps are most often powered by electric motor or diesel engines. There are many variations of fire pumps including both horizontal and vertical split case, vertical inline and vertical turbine pumps. No matter what type of fire pumps you have, they are extremely important in all emergency situations.
Because these pumps are not used very frequently, it is very important that you look into fire pumps maintenance in NYC, Nassau county, Suffolk county and Westchester county.
