Standard Design

Diesel Engine Driven Fire Pump Sets

Unit Base Frame


  • made of edge profiles
  • using steel plates with increased material strength and corresponding structure a much higher rigidity will be achieved compared to conventional base frames made of steel sections
  • with integrated drip pan, designed according to WHG (Water Resources Act), tested, with name plate
  • capacity sufficient for 100% of the fuel tank contents, the engine lubricants and the engine cooling water/glycol mix


External Mounting Brackets



  • external, easy and time-saving installation
  • installation with special fastening accessories without displacement of the pump set
  • integrated center holes as loading points for crane/transport

Jackscrews



For easy alignment of the pump set

Diesel Fuel Tank System


  • design and dimensioning according to NFPA 20, 8-4.3
  • with minimum level monitoring switch
  • with the following fittings
    • mechanical level indicator
    • filling cap
    • vent screw
    • PTC-resistor for overflow protection during automatic refuelling by tanker
    • fuel isolating valve, secured in open position
    • drip pan with integrated steel construction for the installation of the fuel tank, suitable for 100% of the fuel tank capacity, made of hot-dip galvanized steel

Elastic Mounting of the Diesel Engine


Elastic mounting of the diesel engine combined with a highly flexible coupling to ensure structure-borne noise reduction

Stainless Steel Exhaust Expansion


With socket pieces on both sides to be welded into the pipe with the corresponding nominal diameter

Controller


  • with front door labelling in the language of the order
  • name plate showing the technical data of the main components
  • manufacturers plate with FM approval and/or UL listing
  • elastic, vibration dampened mounting of the controller
  • CE-label and safety signs
  • wet parts (pressure transducer, test solenoid valve and piping) in a separate enclosure according to VDE regulations
  • controller complies with rule VGB 04 of the trade association as well as with the corresponding VDE regulation regarding protection against accidental contacts
  • controller meets corresponding VDE regulations regarding grounding and colour code of wires

Battery System


Completely maintenance-free, sealed starter battery system type OGI with an expected lifetime of 12 years

  • elastic, vibration dampened placement of the battery trays
  • battery wiring with completely insulated wire ends and connection pieces
  • colour coded ‘+’ and ‘-‘ cables
  • copper earth tapes with increased cross section to facilitate the earth connections

Markings


Marking of all danger zones on the unit in accordance with Machine Guidlines and GSG Device Safety Law

Laser Adjustment


Each unit will be tested using laser-optics and finely adjusted before delivery. Metal spacers for fine adjustment in different thicknesses compensate alignment errors and allow re-adjustment after installation and during start-up.

An Adjustment Protocol is always included in the scope of delivery.
