Modern fire suppression systems rely on highly pressurized water to extinguish flames and prevent them from spreading. The highly pressurized water is supplied by the fire pumps for sale, which are a critical piece of equipment in any emergency sprinkler setup. The assortment of UL Listed and FM Approved fire pumps for sale here includes a variety of options in different capacities, pressures, and volumes.
A UL Listed and FM Approved multistage multiport pump, for example, has multiple impellers in series inside a single casing driven by a horizontal shaft. Each impeller has a different discharge outlet, allowing the pump to deliver water under varying pressures. This type of fire pump can be installed in a high-rise building and used to send water to different areas. For instance, a single outlet of the multistage fire pump can be installed on the ground floor to serve the lower zone, another can be used for the middle floors (floors 10th through 19th), and the last can be connected to a higher elevation tank for the upper floors.
The backpack portable MARK-3 high-pressure fire pump is one of the strongest lightweight pumps that can withstand a lot of pressure. It has been the preferred fire fighting pump of initial attack crews and forest agencies worldwide since 1964. It is easy to maintain thanks to a split casing that can be opened for access to the pump motor and can be used with either an electric or diesel driver.
