The protection of lives and property is the main objective of fixed firefighting equipment, within which pumping equipment has a major role in ensuring a supply of sufficient flow and pressure.

 

A long experience in the manufacture of fire-fighting equipment has allowed its standardization applying the current CEPREVEN RT1-ROC // UNE EN-12845 standard Technical rules generally demanded by insurance companies. They apply to fire fighting systems with automatic sprinklers.

These rules specify requirements for the design, installation and maintenance of fixed sprinkler systems.

This equipment allows a greater flexibility of solutions and alternatives for the protection of people, buildings and stored material.

The pumping groups must be manual and automatic, while the stop can only be manual.

All these systems require a pressurized water network for their operation. The fire-fighting equipment will maintain the pressurised network, for which they have a small auxiliary pump called a jockey, driven by an electric motor that replaces any possible leaks and drips that may occur in the installation. A small hydropneumatic reservoir helps reduce the number of starts and cushions pressure fluctuations. The overall design of all the equipment is ready for automatic fire service, not admitting other uses.

  • The most important features are :

    • Joint design of all equipment, ready for automatic fire service
    • Modular construction configurable according to the required equipment either single main pump or several main pumps with electric or diesel motor drive
    • The team consists of or may consist of one or more teams according to the attached table.

     

    • The appropriate FOC equipment is defined in the selection table, depending on the flow required by the firefighting system, number of hydrants, sprinklers, etc. and the required pressure.
    • It is necessary to take into account the geometric height between the level of the pumping equipment and the most unfavourable point of the circuit, as well as the load losses of the route.
