GE – 3.1 Certified fire/foam pumps (VdS)

Summary:

Albany is a market leader in the field of foam concentrate pumps, which is why we have created a sturdy range of GE fire/foam pumps. A popular choice for many years in the Fire industry, all models are NFPA20 compliant with certain models also VdS certified.

Designed for fixed and vehicle applications, GE style pumps can be supplied and mounted on a baseplate and driven by a prime mover such as an electric motor or a diesel engine. For the ultimate in safety, we offer pumps directly coupled to a Pelton (water) wheel. The latter are popular in offshore and refinery applications.

Suited to:

Our VdS approved GE pump range can be supplied for use in stationary water extinguishing systems. Allowing for a high level of customisation, all of our pumps can be made to fit the exacting needs of your industry.
