Fire pumps act as the heart of an extinguishing system
The heart of an extinguishing system is typically a pump that ensures the availability of water in case of fire. Should the fire pump not work as expected or its water throughput not meet the needs of the system, the system will fail to work as intended. It is our goal to ensure that your fire pump always works as it should.
We provide high-quality fire pumps for extinguishing solutions
Diesel Power Finland Ltd. provides you with diesel and electric motor pumps for sprinkler and fire water applications. Thanks to our expansive partner network, we have access to the best equipment and components that allow us to manufacture fire pumps in a cost-effective manner and always according to valid regulations.
Although the pump itself is at the core of our competence, we are also familiar with the technology around fire pumps and we always take into account the whole system when designing. Each delivery is mapped out and designed according to the needs of our customers; we offer solutions with the right quality, price, and especially suitability for their intended use.
The pumps can be divided into two main groups, according to usage, sprinkler pumps and firewater pumps. The design and manufacturing of sprinkler pumps are steered by sprinkler regulations, like CEA 4001, EN 12845, SBF 120-8 and FM-Global.
A pump is usually installed in the sprinkler system, when there is no other source of water, or the yield values of the water source do not meet the required values. The pump’s task is to ensure sufficient water pressure in the system at all flow rates.
The sprinkler pumps can be divided, according to usage, in three different groups, electric motor pumps, diesel motor pumps and diesel generator driven electric motor pumps.
Diesel motor pumps
Diesel motor pumps are independent of external energy and are usually used to ensure water production in a situation where the electricity network is not available. The diesel engine pump is also used as the primary pump when the cabling of the electric engine pump and a large main power circuit board/panel, is not a cost-effective solution.
Electric motor pumps
Electric motor pumps usually get their driving power from the electricity grid and usually act as primary sprinkler pumps, which are the first to start in the event of a fire. The advantage of the electric motor pump is a relatively affordable price and simple installation.
Diesel generator powered electric motor pumps
Diesel generator powered electric motor pumps are a combination of the previous pumps, where a traditional electric motor pump acts as the pump. Electricity for the pump is produced by a separate diesel generator. The solution can be used in situations where the pump must be independent of the electricity grid, but it is not possible to install the diesel engine pump in the pumping station due to lack of space.
Sprinkler pumps are always optimized site-specific, aiming for the most cost-effective solution possible, without compromising the sprinkler regulations.
Our expert always pays close attention to the object’s requirements and chooses the best solution for the given situation. We offer you the industry’s leading and most comprehensive expert services, which enable even the most demanding system deliveries to be handled reliably, within schedules and cost-effectively.
