Variable Speed Fire Pump Controllers
- Variable Speed Controller Applications:
Foam Systems Poor Water Supply High Rises Dual Water Supplies
- Eliminating PRVs
- Eliminating PRVs:
By eliminating PRVs you also solve two other tremendous problems: maintainance, and reliability. In the course
of a normal, 15-story building's life (20 years), a Variable Speed Controller can save the building owner $250,000!
Don't believe it? Check out Slides 16-29
for a full explanation.
As for reliability, consider the following: PRVs are a permanently closed system, and they sit that way until a fire happens.
PRVs also require routine testing (and possible replacement) every 1/4 year, 1 year, and 5 years to ensure proper functionality. Variable Speed
Fire Pump Controllers only need yearly testing, which would be done regardless of PRVs.
If having a PRV-free building sounds good to you, Variable Speed is the way to go!
