In this ever-evolving world, one thing you can’t skip is supporting your fire protection needs. Depending on your building and sprinkler type, you have to achieve enough water pressure to meet your fire protection needs. You need to ensure that there’s an NY Fire Pump installed, and if there isn’t one, get one ASAP!
Specifically designed, tested, and installed for fire protection, the NY Fire Pump propels water through pipelines and boosts the pressure and flow. It is usually placed between the water supply connection and the main riser of your fire sprinkler system. It automatically switches on when the activation of a fire sprinkler causes a drop in the water pressure.
While all fire pumps perform the same function, there are a variety of options to choose from. They generally come in all sorts of sizes, designs, types, and models. It’s important to know what each one does. Below are some of the most popular fire pumps available out there in the market.
NY Fire Pumps are built to handle the most demanding fire sprinkler systems without any hassle. Here, incorrectly sized or installed pumps can result in problems like improper system functions, undeveloped spray patterns, insufficient pressure, etc. Hence, the idea is to properly size your fire pump and identify the needs of the most demanding systems. For instance, the standpipe is among the most demanding systems.
Fire protection may seem a challenging task at first glance, but with the right knowledge and expertise, you can achieve desired results.
