The most important part of a fire protection system is the equipment that keeps it functioning during an emergency. This includes fire pumps for sale that keep the water pressure (measured in psi and bar) high enough to extinguish the fire or spray the sprinklers.
While you hope a fire never occurs, it’s best to be prepared for the worst. This means having a UL Listed and FM Approved fire pump for your fire suppression system that can deliver the water volumes and pressures needed. Feld Fire’s collection of portable fire pumps for sale offers an array of capabilities and water capacities so you can find the right device to pressurize your system’s piping.
Fire pumps are the heart of most water-based fire systems because they increase the pressure of a building’s existing water supply to meet the needs of the system. They’re designed to work with different types of hoses and can be powered by either an electric motor or diesel engine. The type of fire pump you choose depends on the types of water-based fire system you have and the amount of pressure you need to achieve.
Single stage centrifugal pumps use a single high-speed impeller to produce a high pressure from a low volume. They’re extremely reliable, offer a wide range of rated pressures and capacity combinations, and can be used with both electric and diesel drivers. They also take up the least space compared to other types of fire pumps.
