The diesel fire pump is used for supplying water to sprinkler systems in event of a fire outbreak. These pumps are often found on commercial properties or industrial facilities where the building is located in a remote area and does not have access to electricity. They have a high flow rate and pressure, so that they can squirt water a long distance in case of an emergency. There are two types of fire fighting pumps, Single Impeller and Twin Impeller. A Twin Impeller fire fighting pump is higher in pressure and has less water flow volume, which means it can squirt water much further than a Single Impeller Pump.
These pumps are fueled by either diesel or petrol engines. The choice of which fuel type you go for is based on your own personal preferences and the intended use of the fire fighter pump. Diesel powered pumps are generally more expensive than petrol powered pumps but they tend to have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance. They are also more durable than electric models.
Engine-driven fire fighting pumps can be diesel or petrol powered and come in a variety of sizes. It’s important to consider your specific needs when choosing a fire fighter pump, as the size you choose can impact the amount of power it has and how long you can operate it for. It’s also worth remembering that petrol-powered fire pumps may run out of gas if they’re not used for extended periods of time.
Hydrodiesel has a number of fully self-contained fire water pumps designed to meet the needs of offshore operations. These systems feature a hydraulic driven lift pump installed below the water line and a diesel driven booster pump installed at deck level. The system can be mounted in safe or hazardous areas as required.
In addition to fire fighting, these units are also suitable for a variety of other applications such as high pressure water transfer, spray irrigation, boom spraying and machinery washdown. They have robust pump casings that can handle substantial input pressures from hydrant and relay pumping, while their internal components are protected by a stainless steel housing that’s resistant to corrosion.
The LD1800 is a heavy duty portable fire fighting pump, with a diesel engine and a metal fuel tank. It’s easy to maneuver and can be operated by one person. It has a large flow range of up to 2600 l/min with 10 bar discharge and a 5 litre fuel tank capacity (1 1/2 hours at max speed). The flanges on the pump have Storz C-2″ couplings for quick connection of hoses. It is also very lightweight and has a stable carrying frame making it easy to move around. It is a great option for anyone looking for a reliable, portable fire fighting pump. It is also available with an electric start version. This makes it even easier to use in emergency situations.
