Armstrong Fluid Technology has unveiled its industry-leading, Design Envelope Fire Pump unit alongside Fire Pump Manager , a fresh, connected service for tracking pump performance. Along with providing important new safety benefits, Armstrong’s new Design Envelope Fire Pump holds the distinction to be the initial self-regulating variable-speed fire pump to meet up NFPA-20 (2019 Edition), Section 4.8 standards.
“Because the first and only self-regulating, variable-speed fire pump available, the Armstrong Design Envelope Fire Pump offers unique points of value for customers. Key among they are the price savings and performance improvements that derive from eliminating many pressure-reducing valves from the sprinkler system,” said Steven Baird, Marketing Manager, Fire Products, Building Systems Solutions. “This innovation allows simplification of the piping design for a safer, less expensive fire suppression system.”
A number of the great things about Design Envelope Fire Pump with Fire Pump Manager and self-regulating, variable-speed technology include:
- Cost-savings as high as $1,500 per sprinkler branch, per floor, from the elimination of PRVs
- Increased design flexibility
- Increased reliability and safety supported by real-time and historic ensure that you performance data
- Capability to predict and report potential equipment failure which could bring about expensive damage and/or lack of life
- Reduction of the amount of zones in a sprinkler system and the potential elimination of storage tanks
- Help with fire systems having large differentials between static and residual pressures
Through Active Performance Management and Armstrong 360 Service and Support solutions, Armstrong believes engineers, contractors and owners are certain to get the perfect performance and value from fire safety systems at every phase in the lifecycle of a building.
“The brand new Fire Pump Manager feature really helps to ensure safe, reliable performance in fire suppression systems, and complete transparency in to the reliability and testing of the pump.” Baird concludes.
