Armstrong Fluid Technology, a manufacturer of intelligent fluid-flow equipment, has introduced its Design Envelope Fire Pump and accompanying Fire Pump Manager, which is a connected service for tracking pump performance.

Armstrong’s Design Envelope Fire Pump is reportedly the first self-regulating variable-speed fire pump to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)-20, Section 4.8 standards.

Benefits of the Design Envelope Fire Pump with Fire Pump Manager include: a cost-savings of up to $1,500 per sprinkler branch; increased design flexibility, reliability and safety; the ability to predict and report possible equipment failures that could cause expensive damage or loss of life; and a reduction in the required number of zones within a sprinkler system and the potential elimination of storage tanks, among others.

According to the company: “The new Fire Pump Manager feature helps to ensure safe, reliable performance in fire suppression systems, and provides complete transparency into the testing and reliability of the pump.”
