Project Name: Interplex
Location:6900 Hiatus Rd. Tamarac, FL 33321
Project Type: 41,766 sq. ft. Warehouse equipped with ESFR Fire Sprinkler System
Synopsis: High voltage electrical fire leaves the building and its fire pump without power.
Details: While digging a trench, workers unknowingly strike the main high voltage power supply feeding warehouse building. Compromising the high voltage cable’s protective insulation resulted in an electrical fire at the building’s primary electrical panel that destroyed the room and other high and low voltage equipment.
With reconstruction efforts expected to take months, and power to the building having to remain off throughout the duration, there was little hope for Interplex to safely occupy the building and resume operations without the 1500gpm electric fire pump supplying the Early Suppression Fast Response “ESFR” type fire sprinkler system protecting its valuable inventory of assets stored at a height greater than twelve feet.
Solution: RentFirePumps.com has a full line of UL-FM listed mobile fire pump units providing temporary emergency solutions for impairments lasting longer than 24 hours to help avoid costly fire watch or loss of occupancy.
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 2000 GPM @ 120 PSI (Providing 1500 GPM @ 130 PSI) – FP Controller (220 v) – Jockey Pump – JP Controller – Test Header –Discharge – Pressure relief valve (Dial in the required pressure) – Day Tank – Low Fuel Alarm.
