WHAT IS A FIRE PUMP CONTROLLER?

In firefighting systems including fire hydrants system or fire suppression system consists of a sprinkler system rely on a pump to supply water to the hydrant lines and sprinkler heads, an electric motor or diesel engine or jockey pump and a fire pump controller for each pump. When there is a fire, there must be a constant flow of water to the hydrant’s lines or in sprinkler heads to extinguish the fire.  In some cases, when general water supply pressure is not sufficient, a fire pump is used to provide the required water pressure. The fire pump controller is like a backbone of any fire pump system as it monitors the pressure and runs the system in the case of a fire. It allows an electric motor or diesel engine or jockey pump to start, which then starts the fire pump and auto stop when pressure reached to settled pressure rating.
