Fire sprinkler system
To prevent loss of people and assets in buildings fire sprinkler systems use water to suppress fires in buildings.
Fire sprinkler
Fire sprinklers can be open orifice or automatic. Automatic sprinklers are activated by heat that breaks the sensing device keeping the sprinkler closed. The water from the pipe comes through the sprinkler and hits the deflector and gives a water spray.
Fire Water Supplies
The water supply to the fire pump in fire sprinkler installations must fulfill the requirements for flow, pressure and duration. Sources can be public water mains, water storage tanks and inexhaustible sources like lakes, rivers and canals
Floor heating
A viable alternative to conventional radiator style heating systems is under floor heating.
Flow temperature
The flow temperature refers to the temperature of the water in the supply (flow) pipe in a heating system or separate part of a heating system.
Flow velocity
The flow velocity of a liquid in pipes varies across the cross-section of the pipe.
Fluoroelastomers (FKM) are one of the different types of rubber used as a packing material in shaft seals to prevent the pumped media from leaking.
Foam sprinkler systems
Foam sprinkler systems use foam to extinguish fires in buildings. The fire sprinkler pump distributes the water & foam mixture via the pipe-system and discharges the foam spray via the sprinklers.
Free passage
The dimension of the free passage usually refers to the largest spherical object that may pass through the impeller.
Free release fire pump
Free release fire pumps are standard pumps used as fire pumps. These standard pumps are not made for fire pump application, which can cause poor functionality in a sprinkler-pump application due to risk of clogging and instabilities in System pressure.
