What is a ULFM Approval?

The process of owning or distributing fire pumps is not as simple as for the rest of the pumps. In order for a fire pump to be used, it primarily needs to be tested and then listed strictly for fire services. This is done through a listing and testing agency. Thus, all packages that include fire protection pumps need to meet the ‘National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 20’ standards in order to be sold. In other words, these fire pumps need to be UL/FM approved so that they can be further used.

UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories whereas FM stands for Factory Mutual and this code ensures that the pumps’ performance has been verified and that they rely upon product safety. We at Vijay Engineering have worked hard to gain certain privileges that not all companies have. Our wish was to provide our customers with fire protection pumps and in order to do that we needed an UL/FM approval. Due to the loyalty that we have established among our clients and cooperators and due to the quality of our products and services, we were qualified to receive the approval.

In conclusion, we offer the UL FM Approved Gate Valves as well as Back Pull Out Pumps. We are proud to say that we were the first, and currently only, valve manufacturers to receive the approval from Factory Mutual. We got the Certificate of Compliance for the fire service water control valves and these include the Non-Rising Stem Gate Valves which are metal seated and the Outside Screw and Yoke. We offer three kinds of Back Pull Out Pumps and those are DB Pumps, CE Pumps and CPHM Pump Sets. We can assure you that you will be satisfied with all of these services if you choose us at Vijay Engineering and Machinery Co.
