Fire fighting pumps are an essential component in water-based fire protection systems. They are used to increase the pressure (measured in psi and bar) of a water source.
The most common type of fire pump is the centrifugal fire pump. The water enters the suction inlet and is driven by the rotation of the impeller and the centrifugal force to the rim where it discharges. They are typically found on fire trucks or in portable fire pumps.
