Fire pump Manufacturer are manufacturers of pumps and other equipment designed to power fire fighting systems. They typically offer a wide range of fire pumps, allowing them to meet the needs of almost any application. These manufacturers focus on technological excellence, diverse product offerings, energy efficiency and global customer support to position themselves as leaders in their field.
The most important thing to consider when selecting a fire pump Manufacturer is whether the company offers UL and FM listings, which are the most widely recognized certifications for fire safety products. UL and FM certifications indicate that the products have passed rigorous testing and meet specific standards, including NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection.
In addition to the UL and FM listings, the fire pump Manufacturer should also provide a performance curve with their products. This shows the flow and pressure that a fire pump will deliver when operating at the rated demand point. The performance curve should be based on test results that have been conducted by the fire pump manufacturer and should include both the Test Results and the Theoretical Results.
Lastly, the fire pump Manufacturer should be able to show that their products have been inspected and approved by an independent third party. This will ensure that the products are up to code and will work as intended in a fire emergency. During the inspection, fasteners should be inspected for their ability to withstand hydraulic pressure. Specifically, UL 448 outlines requirements for all fasteners, such as bolts, studs and cap screws, that connect parts that are subject to stress from the hydraulic load.
