A fire accident can happen at any structure, be it a home, mall, high rise building or hospital. Fire has the potential to cause harm and property damage. On average, about 25,000 people die each year in India due to fire and related causes. Women account for about 66 percent of the people who die due to fire accidents. About 42 women and 21 men die each day in India due to fire accidents.
According to a Fire Risk Survey that was performed by Pinkerton & Federation of Indian Chambers and Industry, fire accounted for 8.45 percent of the overall ranking of risks. The fire risk survey also showed that in the year 2013, fire was rated as the fifth highest risk in the industry. Most fire accidents are caused by electric defaults. In major cities, about 75 percent of the fire related accidents occur due to a short circuit caused by loose wires.
In order to minimize the losses caused by fire, it is essential to abide by fire safety measures. There are many codes, standards, rules and regulations related to fire safety in India. If property owners and managers ensure that fire safety measures are followed, major fires can be prevented.
Eve with the use of fire protection systems, fire accidents can occur at times. Despite all the technological advances, water is the most efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective fire extinguishing medium. In order to put out fire, water has to be pumped. Fire pumps should be well designed and approved by fire protection bodies. You can get such fire pumps from Vijay Engineering and Machinery Company (VEMC). VEMC is a leading Kirloskar dealer and solution provider of high quality firefighting pumpsets.
Fire pumps deliver water through the pipe system to the fire sprinklers in order to suppress the fire. The types of pumps that can be used to put out fire include horizontal split casing pumps, submersible pumps, vertical turbine pumps and end suction pumps.
VEMC also supplies fire fighting pumpsets for various industrial applications.You may buy engine or motor driven pumpsets. We offer a wide range of pumping solutions such as water pumps, containerized fire fighting pumps and multi stage multi outlet pumps. VEMC also supplies Kirloskar Submersible Pumps, HYPN Systems, industrial pumps and Kirloskar spares.
The other pumps that VEMC also supplies for fire applications are the Jockey pumps. These small pumps are connected to fire sprinkler systems in order to maintain pressure in the sprinkler systems. They are designed to ensure that system pressure drop does not occur when a fire sprinkler is activated. Jockey & booster pumpsets are important parts of a fire pump control system.
At VEMC, we also emphasize on energy efficiency and use renewable energy sources. We perform energy audits to measure the performance of motors and pumps in order to conserve energy. Our fire pumps are energy efficient, lightweight and durable. They have useful features like a compact design, anti corrosion and dimensional accuracy. Our workforce is also qualified and abides by strict quality standards. This enables us to meet the needs of our clients.
