Pumps of varied kinds play a significant role in our daily lives. Pumps are used in swimming pools, aquariums, washing machines, petrol pumps, water fountains; the list is almost endless not to mention fire fighting pumps, sewage pumps, jockey pumps and so on. Besides these, there are multitudes of other chemical, process and specialty pumps found in industrial applications.
Today, the presence of fire sprinkler system has become mandatory in all newly constructed tall-rise buildings. The features of the fire sprinkler system to be installed depend on the availability of water supply, number of fire pumps, sprinklers required etc.
Pumps help in moving water or other liquids from one point to the other for a number of applications. The flow of liquids may be needed at normal pressure or high pressure depending upon the application. Centrifugal pumps are named such because they work on the basics of centrifugal force and are normally used for applications which require consistent and cost-effective functioning.
