Two fire experts for the price of one: Grundfos and Peerless Pumps offer combined and superior fire product offering
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Grundfos, the global leader in advanced pump solutions, will display its full range of fire pumps at the 2014 National Fire Protection Association Conference and Expo in Las Vegas from June 9 to 12. Founded in 1946, Grundfos has an extensive history of pump manufacturing and innovation. To further develop its expertise with fire systems, it acquired Indianapolis-based Peerless Pumps in 2007. Peerless, an icon in the fire pump industry, has over 90 years of experience with fire pumps that comply with the NFPA 20 standard and FM-UL approved systems.
Grundfos’ combined portfolio of fire protection products provides a versatile range of engineered-to-order packaged systems that can be tailored to accommodate any combination of diesel or electric pump sets. Electric system configurations can have either a compact system mounted on one base that includes pump, motor, wiring and control panel, or a flex system that has both pump and motor mounted on a base with the control panel separated for a wall or floor mounting.
Diesel systems also offer configurations that mirror their electric cousins: compact design with a complete diesel fire pump unit including pump, engine, batteries and control panel on one base frame, or a second option with a separate wall or floor mounted control panel.
Enclosed fire pump packages can accommodate either electric or diesel systems, or multiple fire pumps for wide variety of applications.
According to Tim Ballengee, vice president of sales for the U.S. fire market, “With over 50,000 installed systems, Grundfos offers the world’s best-selling fire pumps. We design and build fire systems ranging from simple pump-driver systems on a base frame to highly engineered and fully enclosed, packaged systems. We have the widest range of fire pump approvals and listings worldwide, and our expertise enables us to engineer, produce, stock, distribute and service our products globally.”
Some of the most highly visible and iconic buildings in the world such as the World Trade Center properties, including One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) in Chicago, the St. Louis Arch in Missouri, Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium), and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis have Peerless or Grundfos fire pumps installed.
