Fire hydrant system in Hyderabad and Vijayawada for firefighting protection protects human life and property, strictly in that order.
It consists of three basic parts :
- Large store of water in underground tanks or on top of the building.
- Specialized pumping system
- Large network of pipes ending in either hydrants, and sprinklers.
Fire extinguisher dealers in Visakhapatnam and Fire detector systems in Hyderabad provide fire hydrant, which is a vertical steel pipe with an outlet, close to which two fire hoses are stored. Therefore, the fire protection system opens the hydrant, where water will gush out, and the sensors detect a drop in pressure in the system, which will trigger the fire pumps in pumping water at tremendous speed. The quantity of the water is so great that the speed of the water flow can knock down huge fires in minutes.
Fire detector systems in Hyderabad are sprinklers that has a nozzle attached to a network of pipes. They are installed just below the ceiling of a room, and every sprinkler has a small glass bulb with a liquid in it. Moreover, this bulb normally blocks the flow of water, and in a fire, the liquid in the bulb will become hot. Therefore, it will expand, and shatter the glass bulb, removing the obstacle and causing water to spray in circular motion all over the surroundings from the sprinkler. Thus, the main difference between a fire hydrant and a sprinkler is that a sprinkler will come on automatically in a fire.
A fire hydrant system for fire protection is operated manually by trained firefighters; since it cannot be operated by laymen. Therefore, a sprinkler will usually be activated very quickly in a fire, possibly before the fire station has been informed of the fire brewing in the building. This is very effective at putting out a fire in the early stages, before it grows into a large fire. A sprinkler system is considered very good at putting out fires before they spread and become unmanageable only for this reason.
For a fire protection system to work fire pumps are usually housed in a pump room very close to the fire tanks. Therefore, the key thing is that the pumps should be located at a level just below the bottom of the fire tank, so that all the water in the tanks can flow into the pumps by gravity. Moreover, like all important systems, there must be backup pumps in case the main pump fails, and that is electric, and a second backup pump that is diesel-powered, in case the electricity fails. Also there is a backup pump that is electric, which is very common. There is also a jockey pump, which is the fourth pump, and whenever there is small leakage in the main pump slowing the water flow the jockey pump will compensate. Individually each of them is capable of pumping the required amount of water as they are identical in capacity.
