Diesel Engine Drivers for Fire Pumps

Diesel Engines are extremely dependable drivers for fire pumps, as long as the fuel supply is adequate and the equipment is properly designed, installed and maintained. A number of factors must be considered when choosing a diesel engine to drive a fire pump. Some of the important factors to consider include: the starting method, cooling the engine, ventilation of the pump room, fuel supply and noise isolation. From the starting of the engine to the discharge of the exhaust, the parts necessary for the proper operation of the diesel engine will be discussed. Also, this seminar will address the design and performance requirements for diesel engine drivers.
