Inspections For Fire Pumps and Water Storage Tanks
Fire fighting pumps provide water to fire sprinkler systems at increased pressure, making them a fundamental component of every commercial-grade fire protection system. By fully assessing your building plans, we can determine just which type of pump is needed for your type of business and the level of fire risk that you have.
A commercial building’s fire pump is powered by either electricity or diesel fuel, and it moves water from the main source to the fire sprinkler system. It will either be connected to the public underground water supply or to the building’s fire water storage tank. When air pressure drops within the sprinkler lines, the fire pump releases a highly-pressurized flow of water to the fire protection system.
Water storage tanks for fire protection are specially designed for use as part of fire suppression systems. Having the right amount of water on hand is crucial for the ability to quickly extinguish a fire while it is still small.
Should a building’s increased use of water stretch the public domestic water feed supply, the water storage tank can serve as a reliable water supply based on national codes. Furthermore, should drought or other water shortage tax the system, individual business’ fire water storage tanks can be used to provide the needed water source for an owner’s fire protection needs.
In order to ensure that your fire sprinkler system acts as it should, at the moment you need it, it is imperative that your fire storage tanks work in the exact way they are meant to. MLN Company offers regular inspections and risk assessment consultations to determine what steps you need to take in order to be fully prepared for an emergency.
