Electric Pump Unit
What is the needed water inlet pressure for the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit?
The required water inlet pressure is 2-6 bar (30-90 PSI) with the required flow (in case of integrated filter). The flow
requirement depends on the system size. If needed, the feed water line can be equipped with one or several feed water pumps.
Feed water pumps can be controlled by the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit control cabinet.
How much power does the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit need for operation?
The power requirements depend on the size of the pump unit. The required operating pressure and flow determines the amount
and the size of the motors. The first release covers the 27kW motors that are capable of operating at 50Hz or 60Hz for a wide
variety of voltages. Motor start current peak is always higher than nominal current. The peak can be reduced with soft starters
or, in special cases, with additional frequency converters.
How is the operational reliability of the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit ensured?
Operational reliability is promoted through internal Controller Area Network (CAN) bus communication, embedded control
system (printed circuit) boards and system pressure monitoring, which are duplicated. Each electric motor also has individual
control circuits to ensure that the unit is able to operate even if one of the motors has a malfunction. The number of wear and
tear components has been minimized for increased system reliability and simplified maintenance.
What kind of information is available via the pump user panel?
The user interface allows access to real-time data from the pump unit and HI-FOG
system status. The event log provides
valuable information for the field service as well as historical event data, for example, for post-fire event analysis. The user
interface gives clear instructions and notifies of the upcoming periodical maintenance.
What are the requirements for the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit pump room?
Typically pump units are located in a technical space that contains the water inlet, electric feed, drainage and sufficient service
space. The requirements may vary depending on the system type. The modular structure with mechanical pump skid and
separate control cabinet enables flexible installation and optimized footprint.
Can the unit be installed next to a wall?
Yes, the mechanical pump skid and the separate control cabinet can be installed next to a wall as long as the minimum service
area requirements are met. More information is available on the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit data sheet.
What kind of service is needed for the HI-FOG
Electric Pump Unit?
The maintenance routine includes periodical inspections, monthly testing and preventive maintenance services. The service
routines are based on the International Maritime Organization (IMO) performance testing and land approval standards for
fire safety systems and manufacturers’ instructions.
