GreCon booster pumps provide increased water pressure for sufficient extinguishment operation. Standard booster pumps are designed to increase plant pressure up to 65 PSI as measured at the extinguishment valve. Water pump is self-activated with flow and pressure monitored by the spark detection control console.
GWS 3/32 Booster Pump
A small facility with low city water pressure and one or two spark detection zones will benefit in using the GreCon GWS 3/32 Booster Pump. It will boost the water pressure to the required level, become more effective in extinguishing sparks or burning embers in the collector systems, and will reduce the risk of fires and dust explosions. And a new lower price to boot!
With a 2-inch water supply source, the booster pump's motor will pump water into the water lines and tank until it reaches a designated water pressure. When the spark detection system triggers activation of a zone's extinguishing device, the booster pump's motor will engage when the lower pressure limit is reached and will pump water from the source into the system. After extinguishing devices valves are closed, the booster pump's motor may continue running until the system reaches the upper water pressure limit.
The booster pump flow switch will monitor for uncontrolled water flow into the lines. If there is leakage or a broken line the flow switch will activate a trouble alarm on the control console. This alarm will alert plant personnel to the trouble condition so they can respond quickly and take the appropriate actions.
