SPP Pumps


Onshore Fire Protection

Approximatley 90% Onshore Fire Pumps are horizontal split case pumps, and 10% Vertical turbine pumps. This is determend by the source of water for the Fire pump. When called to start, a fire pump must have a positive head pressure (water) at the eye of the impeller. The pump then and only then may pull a lift during operation. We can help you determine which design you project requires during design.
