This is our enhanced booster set available with two, three, four, five, six, seven or eight pumps.
Suitable for large residential or commercial premises including hospitals, university campuses, commercial, retail and process projects. To boost the water pressure up to 14.0 bar, with a water flow of up to 48 litres per second.
Where the booster set is required for combined domestic water & sprinkler applications to BS9251:2014, Fire Sprinkler Mode is activated by an external BMS signal our control system will switch pump operational mode for supplying the sprinkler system in the event of a fire.
Using IE5 class Ultra-Premium Efficient motors to reduce running costs, the range has been designed to increase the pressure of the cold/hot water services within a building, where the existing incoming water mains or feed tank is not capable of supplying sufficient system pressure.
They are fully compliant to:
BS9251:2014 [Fire sprinkler systems for domestic and residential occupancies – Code of practice].
Department of Health HTM 04 Guidance for Safe Water in Healthcare Premises compliant.
PED Pressure Equipment Directive.
WRAS approved and listed.
All sets are fitted with our 2020 Plus controller and energy efficient, variable speed motors which continuously alter their speed to match fluctuating system flow rates. They have the latest flow-through vessels, which ensure a soft start and even wear of the pumps as well as a smooth supply of water, meaning they run quietly.
How to Install
They require a break/feed tank with a suitable air gap for compliance to water regulations.
Pipework interconnection from the tank and to the system and mains power supply.
In order to switch to “fire mode” for BS9251:2014 compliance, the 2020 Plus controller needs to be connected to the building’s fire sprinkler system controls.
Please see the O and M manual for more information.
The booster sets can be configured to the installer’s needs to save space for fitting whilst still maintaining easy access for service and maintenance.
If there are serious access constraints, they can be assembled on site.
