Fire-pumps are typically listed by an approval institute and can be driven either by an electric motor or diesel engine. In a fire installation there can be one or more fire pumps put into operation as a duty assist (50%) – and standby pumps.
The fire-pump delivers the water via the pipe-system to the fire sprinklers to suppress the fire. Fire pumps are powered either by an electric motor or a diesel engine or sometimes by a steam turbine. The number of fire-pumps installed depends on the occupancy hazard (LH, OH or HH) and specific fire installation standard. Some known can be seen in the table to the right.
