How to refuel the fire pump correctly?

2020-05-13

The so-called fire pump is a pump suitable for fire protection, and requires regular maintenance for the fire pump. In particular, the lubricant in the bearing should be replenished in time to ensure that the oil level is correct before it can operate normally.
So, how to refuel the fire pump correctly?
What is the situation where the fire pump needs to be refueled?

Generally speaking, the normal oil level of fire pump should be within the range of 1 / 3-2 / 3 of the equipment oil level window or marked. Generally, the oil level displayed in the oil cup only represents the replenishment capacity, and the oil level of the fire pump's bearing box meets the operating requirements. When the oil level in the oil cup is less than 1/4 of its total volume, Need to consider refueling.

How to refuel the fire pump correctly?
A: Use qualified oil quality
It is recommended that competent enterprises and institutions conduct oil quality testing before refueling. The specific method is to take a small amount of lubricating oil as a sample and compare it with fresh lubricating oil, and then use it after verification according to relevant standards.
1. If the sample looks like a cloud, it may be the result of mixing with water, that is, the oil emulsification that everyone often says. Such lubricants are not allowed to be used.

2. If the sample shows a dark color or becomes thick, it may indicate that the lubricating oil has begun to be carbonized, and it cannot be used.
Lubricating oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons. It is a liquid or semi-solid lubricant used in various types of automobiles and mechanical equipment to reduce friction and protect machinery and processed parts. It mainly serves for lubrication, cooling, rust prevention, cleaning, Sealing and buffering. Fresh and qualified lubricating oils are generally tested by professional systems to obtain relevant certifications and have a certain guarantee of brand effect. Simple verification can be done by looking at the viscosity and smelling. The viscosity and moisture should meet national standards.


 
B. Effective replacement and supplement according to the operating environment of the fire pump
If the environment or operation of the fire pump causes the oil temperature to be below 60 ° C and the lubricant is not contaminated, replace the lubricant once a year; if the oil temperature is 60-100 ° C, the lubricant needs to be replaced 4 times a year; Oil temperature is 100-120 ℃, it is recommended to replace once a month; oil temperature is above 120 ℃, you need to change weekly to ensure normal operation.
Safety is a power, safety is a responsibility! We care about the life of you and the fire pump!
