What's a Fire Pump?
Fire pumps are used in water- grounded fire protection systems. They help to distribute water throughout the sprinkler system so every part of the structure is defended in case of a fire.
Fire pumps are responsible for adding the water pressure in order to reach the pressure demand for the structure or space they ’re used in. For high- rise structures or extensive spaces like storages, if the being water force can not give acceptable pressure to deliver water along all corridor of the sprinkler system, a fire pump is needed.
How Fire Pumps Work?Fire pumps work by taking the water available from the water force and adding the pressure. This stored energy allows water to be distributed along the sprinkler lines throughout the structure. Fire pumps are generally powered by electricity, brume, or combustive energy.
They're connected to the external water force so situations aren't affected by the structure’s water use. Some fire pumps can be connected to a water source like a well or force of water for that purpose.
