Fire Fighting - View pumps

Why should you choose Albany Pumps?

Albany supply gunmetal or stainless steel cased foam concentrate gear pumps specifically for the Fire industry, and have done so for over 100 years. Our pumps are used on fire trucks and fixed installations both off-shore and on-shore in the world’s oil and gas industries, and in other hazardous areas where fire fighting equipment is required.

These pumps will supply up to 20 bar, with screw pumps available to supply up to 3000 liters per minute. Albany’s engineering expertise includes a high level of customisation, ensuring that pumps can be supplied to meet the exacting needs of the fire fighting market. The Albany range of foam pumps can be driven a variety of ways. Electric motor drives and diesel engines are a common choice, but for a totally safe solution we recommend a foam concentrate gear pump with a Pelton wheel drive. This uses as power a part of the main water flow. When mounted in a fire tender, drive is normally by PTO but can also be via a hydraulic motor or a separate engine.

Some of our gear pumps can be supplied with VdS approval. This includes these models with Pelton Wheel drives. This approval is a mandatory requirement for many fire fighting installations. Albany foam concentrate pumps can be supplied to comply to the latest edition of NFPA20 (2013), the appropriate standard for the installation requirements of stationary fire pumps from the American National Fire Protection Association. One aspect of this compliance is an ability run dry for a minimum of ten minutes.

At Albany, we are keen to know which standards our customers would require for the future.  Please contact us at to tell us your thoughts on this subject.
