SPP's fire pumps granted FM certification

SPP Pumps, the manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and systems, has won FM approval for two pieces of advanced fire pump equipment.

The company, which states it has more pumps approved by the internationally recognised Loss Prevention Certification Board than any other manufacturer, now has stated that two key pieces of equipment have been granted FM certification.

The first is a new horizontal split case fire pump, model BS16E, FM Certified in Special Materials of construction, and is the highest capacity pump (8,000USGpm) listed by FM to date. 

The second piece of kit to be given the nod is the FireEye wireless fire-pumping monitoring module. Approved for use with fire pump installations having been examined against FM standard 1310, this sophisticated unit provides information on critical parameters such as fuel level, oil pressure, battery charger status and power loss. Crucially, the customer can instantly access this key data on their website or even via text messages. 

David Robinson, product development and technical support team leader at SPP said: “We’re delighted to have received both of these FM approvals. We continually work hard to deliver products and solutions for our customers that help them to do the best job possible – and in the fire industry this is especially critical. By having these approvals we can give complete assurance that our products really are the very best.”
