The Fire Pump Differences: Electric vs. Diesel

Electric Motor Driven Pumps

In most cases, an electric motor driven fire pump system requires two or more independent power sources.  The control system contains an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) used to monitor power quality and switch between sources when needed.  Many times, the second (or back-up power source) is derived from an on-site emergency generator.  Clients who hire LionHeart are hiring a company that has well-rounded field service technicians who are EGSA certified and experts in, both, ATS and emergency generator maintenance, service, and repairs.

Diesel Engine Driven Pumps

Though more expensive to install and maintain, diesel engine driven fire pumps are commonplace in many commercial and industrial facilities. By meeting NFPA 25, you will be assured your system is meeting all critical inspection and testing points. LionHeart field service technicians are mechanical, electrical and diesel engine experts who are well versed in the unique installation and operational aspects of diesel engine fire pumps.
