Small bore pipe and/or excessive length will cause backpressure on the engine. mark the foundation bolt positions and lift off the pump set to give access for drilling. It is important to install fire pump sets BEFORE installing the main suction and delivery pipe work. in full accordance with NFPA 20. they were accurately aligned before shipment. After the pump and driver unit has been placed on the foundation. The coupling should not be reconnected until the alignment operations have been completed. Realignment is necessary after the complete unit has been leveled on the foundation and the foundation bolts are tightened. All base plates are flexible to some extent and. Hang the anchor bolts in their holes and lower the pump set in position having inserted the anchors into their fixing holes. These foundation plinths should be sufficiently substantial to absorb vibrations and rigid enough to avoid any twisting or misalignment.Project: WORLD TRADE CENTER DOHA QATAR Title of the Document Reference No. The pumps and drivers were shipped from the factory with both machines mounted on a common base plate. therefore. The location for a diesel engine driven pump may be dictated by the requirement of as the exhaust runs should be as short as possible. and Accepted. tighten the anchor bolts to the torque setting recommended in the manufacturer's instructions.5 times the weight of the pump set. The pump should be installed as near to the water source as possible. the coupling halves should be disconnected.2 INSTALLATION OF FIRE PUMPSET • • • • • Before attempting to install the equipment it is important to familiarize yourself with the main items supplied and to ensure that the appropriate cables. Allow sufficient access for inspection and maintenance with enough headroom for a sufficient capacity to lift the heaviest item of equipment. For long coupled pump sets. should not be relied upon to maintain the factory alignment. As a rough guide. QC-MS-FF-005 Method Statement for the Installation of Fire Pump set Revision No Date 00 25 JULY 2011 Page No. they should be at least 12 inches wider than the pump set on all sides and weigh between 1 and 1. Ensure that the Chemical bolts are available as foundation bolts. remove the coupling guard to provide access to the shaft and coupling. This is to ensure that the pipes are positioned to match the pump location and do not transmit load an induce strain in the pump casing. Fire water pump sets and control systems should be Installed. adjust the packers to maintain the shaft level and the coupling alignment within acceptable figures. Whilst tightening the fixing bolts check the shaft level and coupling alignment and if required. reducing engine performance and therefore pump output A foundation plinth should be constructed to support each pump set on a floor area free from expansion joints. Plinths for fire pumps are recommended to have a minimum height of 300mm but height should be sufficient to achieve the necessary weight and to accommodate the pockets for fixing bolts. After allowing sufficient time for the bond to cure. • • • • .

The unit will be in angular alignment when the measurements show that the coupling faces are the same distance apart at all points. 7 of 13 A check for angular alignment is made by inserting the taper gauge or feelers at four points between the coupling faces and comparing the distance between the faces at four points spaced at 90-degree intervals around the coupling. The unit should be checked for parallel and angular alignment. Now the electric and diesel driven pump is ready for suction and delivery pipe works with valves. When the alignment is correct.Project: WORLD TRADE CENTER DOHA QATAR Title of the Document Reference No. A check for parallel alignment is made by placing a straight edge across both coupling rims at the top. Care should be taken to have the straight edge parallel to the axes of the shafts. if necessary. it is necessary to recheck the alignment of the coupling halves. the foundation bolts should be tightened evenly but not too firmly.

Allowance may be necessary for temperature changes and for coupling halves that are not of the same outside diameter. The unit will be in parallel alignment when the straight edge rests evenly on the coupling rim at all positions. Install the diesel engine driven pump in the same procedure as above. Ensure that all alignment checks are made with the coupling halves disconnected and again after they are reconnected. and at both sides.

Make sure that the pump base is firmly secured to a solid flat surface and that the suction and discharge lines are aligned and properly supported to prevent pipe strain on the pump. If damage is evident. • • • • • . Ensure that the Standard ANSI mating flanges should be used to connect the pump to the piping. Ensure that the suction and discharge gaskets are properly installed to prevent leaks and that they do not restrict the flow to or from the pump. Ensure that the pump labels against the requirement to make sure you are installing the proper pump specified for the job. INSTALLATION OF JOCKEY PUMP • • • Ensure that the pump was not damaged in shipment before accepting delivery and Installation. Make sure that the pump suction. marked by a sticker. Hang the anchor bolts in their holes and lower the pump set in position having inserted the anchors into their fixing holes.

All the valves shall be installed as shown in approved shop drawings and ensure that the valves are rated for the system working pressure. Both suction and discharge piping should be supported independently and close to the pump so that no strain is transmitted to the pump when the flange bolts are tightened. • • • Ensure that the Gate valves. Now the pump suction and delivery lines shall be connected. . valves and fittings having pressure rating equal to or greater than the maximum system pressure. Ensure that the pipes and fitting are available as per project specification and approved by consultant. Ensure that suction and delivery lines are connected with proper reducer as shown in the approved drawing and as per the drawing shown below. Where conditions can be expected to cause objectionable water hammer. Ensure that the check valve are installed properly and with the rated pressure as the large fire protection systems experience severe water hammer caused by backflow when the automatic control shuts down the fire pump. Automatically controlled pumps in tall buildings could give trouble from water hammer as the pump is shutting down. Install all the suction pipes and Delivery pipes as shown in the drawing by following the procedure of Installation of Fire Protection pipes & fittings. Ensure that the expansion joints installed beyond the piping supports closest to the pump. Use rigid supports at intervals to provide adequate support. 9 of 13 Ensure that the adequate space and ventilation around the pump are available for service and motor cooling.
