Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced the launch of Fire Pump ManagerTM, a cloud-based service that enables Active Performance Management in its industry-leading Design Envelope Fire Pumps.

The innovative new service proactively tracks and manages pump performance and provides early diagnostic warnings and timely automated reports that help customers make informed decisions and take immediate action to deliver the most efficient and safest fire safety system performance.

More specifically, Fire Pump ManagerTM:

  • records data points on municipal supply pressure
  • makes digital recordings of pump operation and related data
  • provides pump analytics and insights to support condition-based maintenance
  • provides timely notifications and alerts for any impending issues in pump performance
  • Increased reliability and safety supported by real-time and historic test and performance data

“When combined with Armstrong’s self-regulating, variable speed fire pumps, Fire Pump ManagerTM helps deliver several unique points of value to fire-safety professionals, “ said Steven Baird, Marketing Manager, Fire Products, Building Systems Solutions. This includes:

  • Cost savings from reduced need for PRVs (up to $1,500 per sprinkler branch)
  • No drain requirements for any of the PRVs not required
  • Space savings in the mechanical room
  • Simpler, faster installation
  • Elimination of safety factors for supply pressure variation
  • Ability to predict and report potential equipment failure that could result in expensive damage and/or loss of life
  • Reduction of the number of zones in a sprinkler system and the potential elimination of storage tanks
  • Help with fire systems having large differentials between static and residual pressures
  • Increased design flexibility

In addition to providing important new safety benefits, Armstrong’s Design Envelope Fire Pumps hold the distinction of being the first self-regulating variable-speed fire pump to meet NFPA-20 (2019 Edition), Section 4.8 standards.

“Through Active Performance Management and Armstrong 360 Service and Support solutions, customers will get the best possible performance and value from fire safety systems at every phase in the lifecycle of a building” Baird concludes.
