Fire fighting pumps are an essential part of many fixed-place fire suppression systems such as fire sprinklers, standpipes and foam systems. They are also a critical component integrated into fire trucks and fire boats, and serve the same purpose of boosting water supply pressures for firefighting hose operations. Fire pumps are powered most commonly by an electric motor, and occasionally by a diesel engine or even a steam turbine.
When a fire starts it’s important that firefighters have access to a portable fire pump that can help fight the flames until the local fire department arrives. A fire fighting water pump is designed to be transported by vehicle, truck or plane and provide high-performance water pressure to the fire hoses.
