5 Key Reasons You Need to Have a Robust Fire-Fighting Pump

Fire accidents can take anybody unawares and cause a colossal loss of lives and property. An automated fire safety system is therefore indispensable. Fire-fighting pumps have a well-established reputation for preventing major fire accidents. According to NPFA, fire sprinklers effectively control 96% of fires in which they operate. VEMC is the leading Kirloskar Fire Pump Dealer and in this blog, we give you 5 reasons why having a robust fire-fighting pump is necessary. 

1. Enhanced fire-fighting capabilities and fast response time

In the unfortunate incident of a fire breakout, time is highly critical. A minute here or there could lead to a life-and-death situation. A fire-fighting pump has immediate activation on the outbreak and fast extinguishing by cooling and removal of oxygen. The sprinklers activate automatically and VEMC’s MSMO pumps can execute vertically and horizontally, making them highly reliable and effective. 

2. Ability to handle high-pressure requirements in fire-fighting situations

If you are using VEMC’s MSMO pumps, rest assured, you will certainly be able to meet the high-pressure expectations. As expert Kirloskar fire-fighting pump dealers, we can assure you of the highest possible head and flow rates. This is due to the multiple impellers that our pumps have, which typically provide a head of up to 500 metres and a flow rate of about 700 cubic metres/hour.

Essential for compliance with fire safety regulations and insurance requirements

As any Kirloskar Authorised Dealer will tell you, fire-fighting pumps have become the new norm in fire safety regulations across the world. In many countries, these are mandatory equipment to comply with laws. Fire insurance companies may even refuse to provide cover unless you have fire-fighting pumps installed.

Increased protection for property and life

Your property is the result of years of hard work, and the lives of your workers and colleagues are too precious to lose in a fire accident. When you invest in firefighting pumps, therefore, you are not just buying a piece of safety equipment, but also some peace of mind. By limiting the spread of fire, these firefighting pumps can prevent widespread damage to assets and raw materials. This is all the more critical for those areas of the buildings which have limited access to fire hydrants or sources of water. Reliable firefighting pumps simply mean increased protection for both life and property.

Cost-effective investment in long-term fire safety measures

If you’re purchasing Kirloskar’s MSMO pumps for firefighting, you have made the most farsighted investment in fire safety. These pumps are highly affordable upfront but apart from that, their energy efficiency further reduces your running costs. No extensive piping system or storage tanks are required either. All in all, these pumps are the most cost-effective investment in long-term fire safety measures.

Why ULFM Approval is Important for Firefighting Pumps

Firefighting Pumps

If you have always wondered why the terms UL/FM are found on firefighting pumps, this blog is for you. VEMC is one of the leading Kirloskar Fire Fighting Pump Dealers and in this blog, we give you a comprehensive understanding of these certifications.

What is the UL and FM certificate?

Factory Mutual (FM) Global is an international property insurance and loss prevention company. It is a leading mutual insurance company with high-quality control standards. Being certified by the FM simply means your product holds the highest standards of quality. In fact, only FM-approved firefighting products are offered fire insurance by companies across the world.

UL on the other hand stands for Underwriter Laboratories Inc. This is the top-notch testing institute in the US and one of the leading public safety test labs globally.  They perform testing of materials, products and equipment for safety in terms of health and property security. Just like FM, their certificate is recognised the world over as a guarantee for high-quality standards in firefighting. 

Both UL and FM are globally recognised for having rigorous quality testing measurements and as a result, have been established as a mark of reliability. In the case of firefighting pumps, having UL and FM certificates is all the more important. It indicates that the pump is well-equipped and reliable enough to deal with a breakout. This can be of critical importance as fires can lead to life-and-death situations and immense loss of property.

Standards set by UL and FM

It is important that the firefighting equipment meet the codes and procedures set by UL and FM before they get certified. For instance, to get approval from FM, the following criteria are necessary:

  1. Plastic pipe and fittings
  2. Automatic and ESFR fire sprinklers
  3. Foam, dry chemical and CO2 extinguishers
  4. Heat detectors
  5. Fire alarm control panels, signalling devices and detection products

Likewise, some of the criteria set by UL are:

  1. Fire sprinklers
  2. Alarm, pressure-reducing, check and pump relief valves
  3. Fire doors
  4. Fire pumps and accessories
  5. Indicating pressure gauges for fire protection

Why these certifications are necessary

As any Kirloskar Fire Pump Dealer may tell you, firefighting pump manufacturers are in the business of life-saving. This means they need to win the confidence of their customers by highlighting their capability to act in fire emergencies. When manufacturers acquire a certificate from a reputable third party like UL and FM, it means their products have met the requisite standards of quality and reliability. This is great for all stakeholders: manufacturers, fire departments and end customers.


Quite clearly, having the UL and FM certifications under your belt is a great confidence booster for your customers. VEMC –– a Kirloskar authorised dealer supplies FM and UL-approved MSMO firefighting sets known for their reliability and effectiveness in emergencies.

Why Should You Purchase A Dewatering Pump With A Control Panel?

The control panel of a pump is used to automate the mechanics of motor control applications in water-based systems. It includes power components that determine how the pump motor works as well as several devices for operator control. There are also other sensors that help automate the machinery. 

A majority of the time, pump control panels are for use outdoors. In these cases, they are enclosed by a protective layer that allows you to install the panel near a supply of water such as a well so that there is no risk of water damage to it. This is why it is very helpful to buy a dewatering pump with a control panel.

A pump control panel comes in various types and has different features. They can be pre-packaged, for heavy-duty or medium-level use. They can be single-phase, three-phase, duplex, or simplex control panels. They come in different current ratings and voltages. For a dewatering pump, you must choose a pump control panel that serves the purpose adequately.

Determine whether you want your dewatering pump to be used in harsh industrial conditions and the scale at which you plan to use it. These factors will help you select the right pump control panel for it. 

For dewatering purposes, you will probably have to use a pump that can drain waterlogged pits, floods, or entire floors in your industrial site. When you use it is also a significant factor. For example, draining floods in the monsoon will be a heavy-duty job, so it is important to take cognizance of this. The control panel you choose must support these operations properly by protecting the pump from water and other damage at all costs — its main function. It must be designed in a sturdy way that will enable it to hold up to the task. 

Look for a control panel that is easy to install and has an entry point at the bottom for the times that the power supply is running underground

After you have identified your needs and observed the environment where you require the pump control panel, you will be ready to select a suitable control panel. Note that if a pre-packaged pump control panel will not meet your needs, you can always get a customized pump control panel tailored according to your preferences.For more information on industrial pumps, motors, and other equipment, please contact us at +91 98199 07445.
