Manufacturer of fluid handling systems, Armstrong Fluid Technology, has announced the addition of two new fire-pump models to its Fireset Horizontal Split Case (HSC) pump line.

The new models, the 5x4x10NF fire pump and the 8x6x15NF pump, were introduced at the US National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Conference and Expo.

The 5x4x10NF fire pump is designed for installations that require rated flows of 500USGPM (1890 L/min) at pressures ranging from 55 to 167 psi. This performance range is intended for applications such as high-rise buildings.

The new 8x6x15NF pump is for installations requiring rated flows of 1500 USGPM (5680 L/min) and 2000 USGPM (7570 L/min) at pressures ranging from 54 to 168 psi. This performance range is designed for medium-sized commercial applications such as shopping malls or smaller campuses.

The two new Fireset HSC pumps are compatible with both electric motor (50 Hz and 60 Hz) and diesel engine drivers.  They also offer a double suction design for operating efficiency and high flow performance with the suction and discharge on the same centre line to allow contractors to complete the piping before the pump arrives.

The Armstrong line of Fireset HSC Pumps offers a performance range of 500 USgpm to 3,000 USgpm.
