When selecting a pump repair company for any of your pumping needs including domestic water systems, domestic water booster systems, Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), fire pumps, HVAC pumps, chilled water pumps, and condensates, it is important that you choose a company that has experience. This is especially true in places like New York City where pumping concerns can be a little different as far as codes are concerned. Also customer needs and delivery schedules need to be taken into account. Callaghan Pump has been in the New York market for over 15 years where it has not only represented pump lines but also served as a pump repair company. We know about tight spaces. All of our domestic water pump systems up to 40 horse power fit through a 36” doorway. We offer these systems with or without wheels so that you can roll them to their intended locations.
If you take a look around and are comparing pump repair companies, consider whether these other companies have the experience that Callaghan Pump has. For example, large entities like the Port Authority are not going to do business with small inexperienced shops. We have had the pleasure of selling 10 packages to the Port Authority, one of which, sold to JFK airport, was the largest packaged fire pump system in the world. It consisted of 10 Aurora packaged fire pump systems on a skid. Each pump was capable of 3500 gallons a minute at 150 PSI. Imagine that times 10 — 35,000 gallons a minute! If you put these on tests you multiply 35,000 x 1.5 — that’s how much those pumps are capable of pumping. (Please note: These packages were installed by the various contractors.)
Additionally, Callaghan Pump also sold five package systems to LaGuardia Airport, where they were so impressed with our products and service that they awarded us the project at JFK. Both systems consisted of a combination of diesel fire pumps and electric fire pumps. JFK has 6 diesel and 4 electric pumps; LaGuardia has 3 diesel and 2 electric pumps. We are also happy to have been awarded all of the pumps to keep the Lincoln Tunnel dry. There are 34 Gorman Rupp self-priming pumps in the Lincoln Tunnel along with 4 Aurora Fire Pumps for fire protection.
These projects Port Authority just skim the surface of some of the major projects that Callaghan Pump has done over the years and indicate the experience and expertise that come with our sales and pump repair company. Stay tuned for more…
