Fire Pump System

Fire Pump System

from the last article What we have presented about Fire Pump System is that many people have had a lot of inquiries through it whether e-mail or many other contact channels 

Fire Pump System If Brother Tang doesn’t reply thoroughly I’m sorry okay!come to this article that P’Tang received information from those who were interested I would like to present an article about Fire Pump System which you can read directly about the system

how it works or what elements are involved So as not to waste too much time reading Today Brother Tank will take you to know each other better how the system or Fire Pump System Usually it is important that the establishment or area where the fire pump

is installed the first thing to understand is the fire protection system data detail section Let’s read on fire protection system This includes automatic sprinkler systems fire pump systems fire alarm systems hand-held fire extinguishers or various emergency rescue equipment systems

used to extinguish the fire must be inspected repaired and maintained to be in good working condition at all times 

And when a fire occurs it can alert residents and extinguish the fire immediately To help reduce the loss of life and property from the fire The lecture will be on 4 topics

The components functions and maintenance of each type of equipment will be discussed as follows.

1. Fire pump and equipment 

2. Portable type fire extinguisher

3. Fire hose 

4. Wet pipe sprinkler system

Brother Tang would like to explain the topic in detail emphasizing it for easy understanding and understood exactly the same

Fire pumps and equipment

Fire pump systems are the key to extinguishing fires that occur in buildings Many times when there are fires in buildings the fire pump is out of service. due to lack of maintenance However the fire pump will be able to work efficiently there are other important factors such as

– Installing the fire pump in the proper position 

– Installing the pipes with proper equipment 

– Knowing the functions components and how to maintain and maintain fire pumps


Location of the fire pump To keep the fire pump and the pressurized water pump (Jockey pump) to work efficiently and has a long service life should be installed in a suitable environment as close to the water reservoir as possible Placed on a concrete platform that is stable and strong

There is a roof to protect from the sun and rain The installation location of the fire pump unit within the pump room should be located in a location that is easily accessible for inspection and maintenance or repair Because fire pump sets are usually large and heavy

The installation design of the fire pump set should be close to the entrance-exit door of the pump room To make it easier to remove and move when the fire pump needs to be repaired to another location and should have equipment to facilitate repair and maintenance or for moving Correct installation and piping with equipment

  • Do not run a long suction pipe and use various joints in the system to a minimum Otherwise there may be a problem with the pump not able to pump water
  • Separate the suction pipe of the Fire pump and the Jockey pump apart in case the pump is located above the water tank
  • Relief valve must be installed before the Check valve in case Installed after the Check valve when the Jockey pump is working it will cause the Relief valve to drain the water in the system causing the Jockey pump to work frequently
  • When connecting the Discharge pipe of the Jockey pump to the Fire pump pipe system continue after the Check valve
  • Fire pump on the suction side NFPA requires the installation of OS2Y GATE VALVE valves only sometimes the sump is below the water pump level But the designer cannot install a VERTICAL TURBINE FIRE PUMP fire pump because the pump room is not above the sump which may be installed as a HORIZONTAL SPLIT CASE instead but should have a PRIMING TANK installed in the system To add water in case of FOOTVALVE leaking problems And the pipes of the PRIMING TANK system should be connected to the check valve on the discharge side of the pump The water in the priming tank
  • will automatically add water to the fire pump itself according to the installation pattern in the picture
  • In the case of sucking water from a lower well there is no need to insert a gate valve or butterfly valve on the suction side

Because this will increase Friction loss in the suction pipe and sometimes if not installed properly will cause air to leak into the suction pipe


How are you doing with this article but!

for system information It’s not over yet Brother Tang also has other information related to the system that I would like to present more But would like to keep it as an article for the next time Guaranteed to go deep into another step for sure If interested people want to know more information

Brother Tang recommends you to follow each other closely Because you won’t miss any news from P’Tang for sure
