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 RT2-ABA regulations. Technical rule generally demanded by insurance companies. Applicable to all firefighting systems.

The pumping units must be of manual and automatic start, 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 the equipment, prepared for automatic fire service.
    • Modular manufacture configurable according to the equipment required either bo.mba main single or several main pumps driven by electric motor or diesel.
    • The team consists of or may consist of one or more teams according to the attached table.

    a) Total independence (two autonomous suppliers or generators.

    b) Automatic switching in a separate panel from the control units of the pumping group.

    c) Power in each one equal to or greater than the maximum demanded by all engines in simultaneous consumption. In each case, both can be electric.

     

    • 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.
