Hydrant Pumps play a vital role as the first response to a fire situation, saving countless lives and property from destruction. They are usually found in manufacturing and industrial facilities, housing complexes, power plants, schools, hospitals, airports, commercial buildings and offshore oil platforms. Also refer to related categories of Electric Hydrant Pumps, Electric Sprinkler Fire Pumps.
Smoothflow offers following fire pumps in diesel and electric:
-- Diesel hydrant pumps
-- Electric hydrant pumps
-- Diesel and Electric sprinkler pumps
They are fully-compliant and fully-packaged pumpsets for ease of installation. All hydrant pumps which are compliant with the building code and fire code AS2941-2013, are built on fabricated s corporate with manifolds and bypass including valves, controls and accessories to provide a fully automated system complying with AS2941-2013.
--- All diesel hydrant pumps have heat exchanger cooled engines as standard configuration, which allows diesel fire pumps to operate in higher ambient temperatures.
--- Workshop testing: every fire pumps, including diesel hydrant pumps and electric sprinkler pumps are tested in workshop strictly according to fire code AS2941-2013.
--- Oversized universal joint shafts guarantee trouble-free operations. --- Coupling guards with 4mm thick panel maximise the safety concern.
--- Detailed documentation - All units are supplied with comprehensive operation and maintenance manuals including 3D drawings.
All listed items above for fire pump controller are required by AS2941-2013.
--- Controller should have two circuit loops: automatic circuit loop and manual circuit loop.
--- Manual circuit loop ensures the fire pump can be started anytime, even with NO 240V power supply.
--- Control circuit isolator: this is a lockable circuit isolator which can isolate diesel engine without starting while maintenance.
