A portable fire pump is a highly specialized piece of fire equipment used to draw water from a source and deliver it under high pressure in an emergency situation. They are often used for structural firefighting and to fill booster tanks on fire trucks. They are often used in remote locations where a standard fire hydrant is not available.
Selecting the right portable fire pump requires careful consideration of your firefighting needs and your operating conditions. Considerations include price, flow rate and pressure, engine efficiency, fuel efficiency and the availability of replacement parts. A reliable manufacturer with a solid warranty and customer support is important. It’s also a good idea to test and compare pumps under real-world conditions before making your purchase.
High-performance portable fire pump
Our high-pressure, lightweight, durable fire pumps provide exceptional flow rates and pressure with minimal maintenance required. We achieve these results by using a single, high-speed impeller driven by a low-maintenance gearbox. The pump body is hard-anodized to reduce weight, and the replaceable wear rings are bronze to increase durability.
Our mobile pumps are lightweight enough to be carried by one or two people over rough terrain to the site where they are needed. Some of the models are designed to be mounted on trailers for easy transport and storage. The Rosenbauer FOX, FOX S, BEAVER and OTTER series portable pumps are powered by reliable Rotax engines for excellent performance even under demanding conditions.
