The Allied Pumps range of Package Fire Pumps (Fire Protection Pumpsets, Fire Hydrant Pumps) were developed to cater for growing demand for specialised turnkey systems compliant with Australian standard AS2941:2013 for Fire Pumps.
Fire fighting pumps from Allied Pumps are available in diesel and electric drive configurations, assembled on a common fabricated base with pipework manifolds, valves, all relevant controls and accessories to provide a fully automated system. Systems are engineered and fabricated in strict adherence to all relevant fire codes.
With the need to build up rather than out, special consideration needs to be taken to meet adequate fire safety. Buildings that exceed 4 – 500 feet, the higher floors are often beyond the pumping capacity of fire departments. This can result in loss of life or property in the event of a fire.
Consequently, the purpose of a fire pump is to ensure the fire sprinklers work the way they’re supposed to, by increasing the firefighting capacity of a building by boosting the pressure in the hydrant service when mains is not enough, or when tank fed. The higher the building the more pressure is needed to keep the water pressure at an adequate level to extinguish flames.
Fire water pumps are found in systems where the local municipal water system cannot provide sufficient pressure. Fire Pumps are used in buildings such as apartment blocks, hotels and hospitals. They are also used in systems that require high terminal pressure from the fire sprinkler to provide a large volume of water, such as those required for storage warehouses. They’re also found in facilities where water supply is provided from a ground level water storage tank. This category includes:
Systems can be supplied incorporating diesel engine, electric motor, anti-vibration, fuel tank, batteries, pressure relief valves, heat exchange cooling, etc. All interpiped and interwired on a common base.
Package fire pumpsets are fully fabricated in-house from base through to pipework and switchboards giving ultimate control on quality, economics and project time frame constraints
Allied Pumps incorporate fully NATA certified test bay facilities with flow capabilities to 700L/sec.
Allied Pumps has the capability to engineer a solution to the specific application. From a special to suit an existing plant room to a code compliant system drawing from a below ground tank, Allied Pumps pumpset package will meet the requirements.
In conjunction with Allied Pumps Package Fire Pumps, Allied Pumps’ Circular and Square / Rectangular Galvanised Steel Panel Liner Tanks are specifically manufactured and tested for fire and other industrial applications.
Cost effective, high quality and manufactured to Australian Fire Tank Standards, Allied Pumps Fire Tanks can be engineered to suit your requirements. The possibility of square or circular configuration marks Allied Tanks as a versatile, complete tank solution.
The Allied Pumps Fire Tanks are compliant with all Australian Standards including AS2419 for tanks and AS2304 for fire tanks.
