The global demand for bigger fire pumps for water supply and firefighting has been expanding rapidly for industrial, oil and gas, marine, nuclear, military, and municipal markets. In the race to develop a bigger and more powerful pump, US Fire Pump (USFP) has taken the lead with the release of its new High Velocity Fire Pump. It is the largest NFPA-1901 rated single-stage fire pump in the world.
This USFP High Velocity Fire Pump is designed for industrial fire pump applications and high-volume water supply using 600-hp or larger engines that are now available. The pump is designed as fire apparatus, fire boats, fire trailers, skid packages, and high-flow water supply trailers.
The unique design of this pump allows for high-flow water supply and NFPA 1901 industrial fire pump applications in one package. Its performance range, depending on water supply and drive engine power output, is an NFPA1901 rating of 5,500 gpm and 7,500 gpm from a hydrant supply.
A key feature of this pump is the optimized flow-through layout, which maximizes the pump’s performance from a high-flow hydrant system. The pump is also designed for 120-hp SAE C/D auxiliary drive output to drive large foam systems or air compressors.
US Fire Pump is a new company comprising a team of people with more than 190 years of fire industry experience in design, engineering, manufacturing, marketing, and purchasing.
