High Velocity Pump
Largest NFPA Compliant Fire Pump Ever Built
The USFP High Velocity Pump (HVP) is an engine driven fire pump designed to meet NFPA 1901 performances up to 6,250 GPM from draft and more. With sufficient engine power and a pressurized water system, performance will exceed 10,000 GPM.
The key to this fire pump design is optimized flow through layout, which maximizes the pumps performance from pressurized water systems with capabilities of over 10,000 GPM. Part of this high flow design includes a 12” flanged suction inlet feeding an impeller eye, which exceeds 10″ in diameter with a discharge outlet of 8” for the 5,500 GPM unit and 10″ for the 6,250 GPM unit.
An important option designed into this pump is an auxiliary drive output to power SAE C/D hydraulic systems used to drive large foam systems or a flanged output to drive air compressors. Additional design features include optional bronze pump construction, Teflon ring mechanical seal backup, and quite helical gear transmission.
