3 Day Quick Ship

Express Quick Ship

Can you say THREE DAY LEAD-TIME!! Another Express Quick Ship package out the door by the end of the week. This is an emergency shipment for a high rise building in NY City. The client was on Fire Watch and paying nearly $3,000 a day while waiting for a competitor pump that was quoted with an 11 week lead-time. They knew this 11 week time-frame would get drawn out to 20 weeks or more.

The Ameriflo crew did what they do best and got this UL/FM certified pump assembled, tested, mounted and crated in three short days. Along with the fire pump goes a jockey pump as well. Incredible work done by an incredible team!! Oh, and by the way, this is one of three pumps on the floor being shipped in 1 week or less…..

In a world today where all of Ameriflo’s competitors are quoting 20-40 week lead-times having a program like the one Ameriflo offers simply has no equal!!

Ameriflo has over 250 pumps in stock for standard and Express Quick Shipment options. Be sure to call us for all of those projects where the other guy isn’t meeting the lead-time they quoted so you wouldn’t look around for another reliable supplier like the Ameriflo crew!! Stop letting these other guys hold you hostage and critically impact your business by being late on deliveries and not meeting the elevated standards you deserve.

Egyptian Fire Pumps

Electric & Diesel Driven Split Case Pumps

Ameriflo supplies equipment to nearly over 80 countries globally.  Many of these applications use redundant electric, Diesel & jockey pump combinations (EDJ).  These applications are a great example of how Ameriflo can control costs across the entire project as they are the only North American pump manufacturer to also manufacture their own Diesel engine product line.  This gives the Ameriflo distributor an incredible advantage over their competition.  The largest hydraulic coverage also allows for perhaps the best selections based on efficiency and speed.

The pumps shown here are from the 5030 Series SC Split Case product line and cover 500, 750 & 100 GPM flows with pressures ranging from 5 to 10 bar.  These pumps are coupled to WEG electric motors and Ameriflo Diesel engines.  All pumps feature standard ductile iron casings, investment cast, 304 stainless steel impellers and are all mounted to the heavy duty Ameriflo fabricated base with alignment and leveling jackscrews standard.

Diesel Engine SC Pumps

Middle East Split Case Pumps

The pump featured in this short Blog includes a Diesel engine driven split case pump.  This medium sized pump produces 2500 GPM @ 135 PSI.  Ameriflo has the most efficient and expansive split case product offered in the fire protection market today.  The 5030 SC product line has many standard features and benefits that are not offered even as options by the majority of the other players.  The Diesel engine version features an Ameriflo AF6-135, 6 cylinder block generating 375 HP at 1760 RPM and has a large 1.500 inch cooling loop.

Ameriflo Diesel engines have features that the other Diesel engine manufactures simply do not offer.  The Diesel engine cradle is a unique and specifiable feature by virtually eliminating Diesel engine vibration that was historically transferred to the pump and system piping from the Diesel engine.  The Ameriflo Vibration Isolation Cradle (VIC) has integral engine mounts that completely isolate the Diesel engine vibration from being transferred to the pump base assembly.  This is a feature that no other Diesel engine manufacturer has as a standard offering.  This VIC greatly reduces oscillations found from other Diesel engine manufacturers and allows all Ameriflo pump assemblies to operate vibration free.  Other models feature charged air cooled intake and water to oil heat exchangers to maximize Diesel engine performance.

The Ameritouch digital engine controller has no “old school” gauges present.  The end user is presented with a fully digital, touch screen interface that is state of the art!  All Diesel engine parameters can be monitored from this digital interface making startup and run tests very easy.  This is yet another example of how Ameriflo is leveraging technology to be the leader in the fire protection market.

Diesel Engine Vertical Turbine Bases

Elevated Bases

One of the most unique features of Ameriflo’s Diesel engine driven vertical turbine product line are the foundation bases.  Every other vertical turbine manufacturer supplies a base for the discharge head only and has a separate base for the Diesel engine.  The vertical offset between the Diesel engine and the pump is typically addressed at the job site by the contractor pouring the foundation.  If ANY issue comes up during installation about the driveshaft not lining up with the right angle gear drive the finger pointing games kick off!!  In the Ameriflo design, the foundation is flat, exactly the same when installing an end suction or split case.  This vertical riser design is a game changer making Diesel engine vertical turbine installation a breeze.

As in the case of all Ameriflo fabricated bases, the vertical turbine base has engineered features not found elsewhere in the industry.  There are jackscrew alignment bolts at four points around the discharge head to help with proper driveshaft alignment.  The base has leveling jackscrews installed along both long sides of the base making leveling very quick and easy without the need to add shims at the job site.  The heavy wall thickness of the material used in the base has an extremely high torsional rigidity.  The box beam design also allows for easy access to all voids making grouting very easy as compared to other manufacturers that use a light duty, bent channel base design with several holes cut out allowing limited access to all cavities within the base.
