A Jockey Pump is a small automatic electric motor driven pump set used to replenish minor water loss and maintain system pressure.
Our Jockey pumpsare sized so as toprevent this pump from maintaining one sprinkler in operation without the main pump starting.
Jockey pumps are from the centrifugal pump design and have a discharge pressure sufficient to maintain desired fire detection system pressure.
Jockey pumps have steep head to capacity characteristics to avoid excessive flow when pumping within the pressure operating range.
Our Jockey pumps do not exceed the Maximum pressure of 1200kPa and are set to start automatically when the system pressure has dropped below the set pressure.
