Description 

Apply NFPA 20: Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection to ensure fire pump readiness and reliability.

NFPA 20 is the industry's trusted source for comprehensive rules concerning stationary fire pump design, electrical and mechanical construction, acceptance testing, and operation. Installers and maintainers rely on this Standard for guidance on the full range of fire pumps -- including centrifugal, vertical shaft turbine-type, and positive displacement -- limited service controllers, and pumps arranged in series. Each successive edition of NFPA 20 builds on new research and experience in the field. Compliance helps users avoid malfunctions and make sure pumps can deliver on cue.

  • The 2013 edition of NFPA 20: Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection responds to industry developments with added coverage of water mist positive displacement pumping units. New provisions addressing diesel engine shutdowns help you avoid equipment damage during testing operations. Other changes include criteria for flow meters to determine accuracy and the need for recalibration. A new rule mandates a flow test within 12 months prior to submission of working plans.
  • The 2010 edition of NFPA 20: Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection includes an all-new Chapter 5 on high-rise buildings, with special provisions based on design practices, risk exposure, and fire fighter operations. Some of the most complex fire pump projects are in high-rises, and this edition of the Standard adds information that is vital to engineers, building owners, and AHJs.
  • The 2007 edition of NFPA 20: Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection broadens coverage with added information on variable speed drive applications, new calculation methods for pressure relief valves and test header piping, and new applications for pressure reducing valves.
