The purpose of a fire pump is to provide a reliable and pressurized water supply for firefighting purposes. It is a critical component of fire protection systems in buildings and facilities. Fire pumps ensure that an adequate water flow and pressure are available to effectively combat fires by supplying water from various sources, such as water tanks, municipal water lines, or reservoirs, to sprinkler systems, standpipes, or other firefighting equipment. Regular maintenance and inspections are crucial to ensure their effectiveness.
There are various types of fire pumps used in firefighting systems. The most common types include electric motor-driven pumps, diesel engine-driven pumps, and steam turbine-driven pumps. Electric motor-driven pumps are reliable and suitable for indoor installations. Diesel engine-driven pumps are typically used as backup systems in case of power outages. Steam turbine-driven pumps are less common but can be found in specific industrial applications where steam power is readily available. Each type has its own advantages and is selected based on specific project requirements. Caruth’s inspectors can inspect most types of fire pumps.
