Description of application of fire engine pump.

- Mar 02, 2018-

In order to ensure the effective use of fire engine pumps, we need to know more about relevant knowledge as users.

In general, diesel engines used for urgent power generation do not provide guaranteed power.

However, the power is usually plus or minus 5 per cent of the power indicated, but the actual power may be less than 5 per cent of the indicated power.


Of course, after a period of grinding, the power will gradually stabilize, usually at least 50 hours of running time to achieve this effect.

A fire engine pump is typically tested for 30 minutes a week, so its maximum power can only be achieved after two years of operation.

This means that the diesel power will be reduced by a maximum of -3% during this period.


Therefore, in the first two years of work, due to the need for a period of grinding, the power is relatively small, which will be reduced by about 3%.

However, the test requires that the fire engine pump has a 10% spare power to ensure that it has enough power to drive when used.

In addition, the diesel engine used for emergency power generation also has the function of downtime.


For example, if the temperature is rising or the oil pressure is low, the emergency diesel engine may be automatically shut down.

The fire engine pump will stop automatically only if it is speeding.

The main reason for this design is to protect the safety of life and property as much as possible, rather than to protect the equipment itself.

Therefore, it will work until the last minute to ensure maximum suppression or extinguishing of fires.


To sum up, even if the cooling temperature is high or the oil pressure is low, the fire engine pump will still maintain the state of work to protect the safety of personal property.
