Chicago — Grundfos will highlight its range of Peerless Pump-brand fire protection pumps at the American Society of Plumbing Engineers’ 2014 convention and exposition in Chicago Sept. 22 and 23. An icon in the pump industry, Peerless has more than 90 years of experience manufacturing FM UL-approved systems, as well as pumps that comply with the NFPA 20 standard.
“With more than 50,000 systems installed, Grundfos offers the world’s best-selling fire pumps,” said Tim Ballengee, vice president of Sales and Business Development for Grundfos Fire. “We design and build fire systems ranging from simple pump-driver systems on base frames 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.”
Grundfos’ Peerless 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.
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 fire pumps installed.
