US FIRE PUMP
ABOUT US FIRE PUMP
US Fire Pump is a fire industry collective with over 190 years of experience in design, engineering, manufacturing, marketing and purchasing. The Company is led by Chris Ferrara, who has been in the firefighting industry for over 30 years both as a fireman and as an innovator and founder of Ferrara Fire Apparatus.
Protecting the lives of the public and firefighters while limiting the structural damage caused in large scale fires is the primary mission at US Fire Pump. With the unique experience and vision of Chris Ferrara, US Fire Pump has developed a new line of firefighting equipment that maximizes water flow and reach capabilities.
The first US Fire Pump innovation to hit the market was the High Velocity Pump, which is the largest compliant fire pump in the world with a rating up to 6000 GPM NFPA 1901. The unique design allows for high flow water supply and NFPA 1901 industrial fire pump applications in one combined package. Built for direct engine mounted applications, the High Velocity Pump is ideal for fire apparatus, marine, fire trailers, and skid units.
Along with the High Velocity Pump applications, US Fire Pump has also developed many other firefighting systems that increase performance and capabilities. A full line of Hydraulic Submersible Pumps can deliver up to 10,000 GPM from any static water source.
Just to make water delivery as easy as possible for firefighters, a 3,000 GPM mini-submersible pump is available and small enough to fit in a pickup truck giving more flexibility on how and where fire apparatus can be used.
US Fire Pump's latest innovation is the Remote Track Monitor which now gives firefighters unprecedented access to large fires without putting firefighters at risk…just turn it on, drive in, and attack.
As important as these new advancements are to firefighters, this is just the beginning. Chris Ferrara and US Fire Pump will continue to explore new concepts, push the limits of equipment and technology, and change the face of the firefighting industry forever.
SIMPY PUT ITS THE LARGEST NFPA RATED 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.
MOBILE PUMP UNIT
Quickly moving firefighting equipment into position can greatly increase the chances of a positive outcome to an industrial fire event. With performance up to 6,250 GPM from draft and in excess of 10,000 GPM from a pressurized source, our Mobile Pump Units provide that instant mobility and high water flow to any department now.
HYDRAULIC SUBMERSIBLE PUMP
The hydraulic driven, submersible floating pump systems is the perfect solution for getting pressurized water from static sources. The system is ideal for dewatering from natural disasters and emergency fire water supply. Allowing quick access to any open water source at a distance up to 175 feet, our Single 3000 system can be deployed easily by one person and our Dual 5000 system by two people. Units are powered by a diesel hydraulic system.
Optional environmental safe hydraulic fluid available
Optional boom systems can be installed for hard to access areas over dams or levy walls
