Shopping for water boosters or fire pumps is different than hopping online for commercial products. This is because people’s lives are at stake in case something goes wrong. So, make sure you align yourself with a trusted name in the market when you are looking for a NYC Fire Pump.
When it comes to Brooklyn Fire Pumps, there are two key features to keep in mind. Let’s take a look at them in this blog post!
The jockey pump is sized 1% of the fire pump’s flow and keeps the fire pump system pressurized all the time. So, when you have leaks, the jockey pump will automatically fill the system back up.
The second feature of the CT Fire Pump system is the half-inch sensing line, which goes from the high-pressure side of the fire suppression line to the fire pump controller. It is supposed to be non-ferrous (brass or copper) in nature and always contains two check valves or orifices 3/32” large that stop any kind of water hammer when the fire pump shuts off.
All fire pumps have packing whether it’s the Hydromatic or Aurora Fire Pump NY, the horizontal split case or the vertical in-line pump. This packing is made up of different materials, such as non-asbestos fibers. Most fire pumps contain six rings of packing. If it’s horizontal, there will be six rings on both sides of the shaft, keeping the shaft lubricated. For the vertical in-line fire pump, the packing will be on one side where it drips out.
When dealing with fire pumps, you also need to remember that when a fire pump starts automatically, it is not going to stop until you press the red Stop Button on the front of the control panel. This is actually a new code, which states that fire pumps must start automatically and stop manually. Also, make sure you do not hold down the disconnected lever because, in an event of fire, you would be taking the fire protection away from the building.
