Fire protection systems must be reliable in their operation. They are essential for fire fighting particularly in high-rise buildings. Their perfect functioning ensures that water will be delivered properly to put a fire out.
Udyog Engineering provides electric and diesel-driven fire pumps and other equipment that forms a fire-fighting system.
The fire pumps begin to work when the pressure in the fire sprinkler system falls below a threshold.
Fire pumps fall into the following categories:
- Hydrant Pump
These are high-pressure electric and diesel-driven fire pumps made especially for fire fighting. They are best to use in a building and work by boosting the pressure in the hydrant service. They are the most common water-based suppression systems for fire hazards.
- Sprinkler Pump
A sprinkler pump is powered by diesel, electricity, or steam. It draws water from a water tank or water body like a lake. It could also directly be powered by diesel. Water is distributed from the sprinkler system of the pump due to the high pressure of water. The pump provides water flow at high pressure to hose standpipes.
- Jockey Pump
This is a small pump which connects to a fire sprinkler system so that pressure in the sprinkler pipes is maintained. Even if a fire sprinkler is activated a pressure drop is created and the jockey pump makes up for this pressure drop.
- Booster Pump
A booster fire pump is used to support the supply of water from a public or private source in case the pressure requirements of the protection system are beyond the capacity of the current supply. These pumps require regular inspection and testing to ensure reliable operation.
These pumps are suitable to install in residential properties, malls, hospitals, refineries, and industries.
Udyog Engineering is one such supplier of fire pumps and engineering products in India, who offer customized fire protection packages to their customers.
