Why does the fire pump rust?

Why does the fire pump rust? What are the causes of the fire pump corrosion? Better Technology Co., Ltd. focuses on the development and production of fire pumps, and always solves equipment failures for fire pump users. Recently, many new and old customers said that in order to effectively extend the life of the fire pump, it is necessary to control the rust of the fire pump from the source. To this end, I am here to briefly explain the fundamental factors of the fire pump rust.

Material factors

In general, the main body of the fire pump is made of cast steel or stainless steel. And these metal materials are bound to rust, no matter how long or short. However, some fire pump manufacturers that only make profits, in order to control production costs, even in the same material, will buy low-quality materials at low prices. To this end, fire pump purchasers, in addition to a simple understanding of the fire pump materials, when purchasing a fire pump, it is better to visit the fire pump manufacturers, verify the pros and cons of materials.

Working Environmental factors

The working environment of the fire pump is usually closed, such as the second floor. In such an environment, if the building is not discomfort and normal, it will be extremely humid when it encounters rain and weather, and it is not easy to dry. In such an environment, the metal is more likely to rust. Therefore, the pump room of the fire fighting pump should try to do some measures to prevent moisture.

Frequency factor

As an emergency equipment, fire pumps are not used frequently and are put on hold for a long time. In this case, the fire pump is prone to rust. For this reason, I recommend to put aside the unused fire pump, and also do the appropriate start-up operation as maintenance.

Insufficient maintenance factors

The surface of the fire pump will be painted with bright red paint. On the one hand, this is a fixed color in the fire protection field, on the other hand, it is to effectively prevent the surface of the fire pump from rusting. Therefore, there is always one way in the daily maintenance measures of the fire pump, which is to paint. In this way, it is possible to effectively ensure that the fire pump does not rust.
