When it comes to firefighting, every tool can make the difference between life and death.
Fire fighting have worked for centuries to find the best tool to extinguish a fire as fast as possible to save the most lives and properties.The fire fighting pump system is a perfect example of a tool invented to improve the capability 0f a safety department
Now the question on your mind should be what is a fire pump?
A fire pump is a part of a fire fighting system for water supply and usually powered by electric, diesel or steam. The pump intake is either connected to the public underground water supply piping or a static water source which provides water flow at a very high pressure to the sprinkler system risers and hose stand pipes
A fire pump is usually a pump set and like the ones supplied and installed by GODSON and HANSON LTD to Crown flour Mill (Olam Nig Ltd) , Ilorin in December 2020 usually is made of;
- THE JOCKEY PUMP
- THE ELECTRIC PUMP
- THE DIESEL PUMP
In a fire system, the jockey pump is always the first to run. It is a small pump connected to fire sprinkler system which maintains pressure in a fire protection piping system to an artificially high level so that the operation of a single fire sprinkle will cause a pressure drop which will be sensed by the fire pump automatic controller causing the fire pump to start.
An electric pump, as the name implies, is powered by electric motor that drives am impeller or centrifugal pump which moves water, otherwise called drive water, from the well through a narrow orifice or jet.
It is advisable to always install the electric and diesel so that when the cause of the fire is electric, the diesel functions to put out the fire and vice versa.
Taking you through all these is just to help understand all there is in a fire pump, so that by allowing more water pressure at the scene of fire, the pump will help resolve dangerous situations created by any fire.

We are here in Nigeria and can deliver anywhere in the country once an order is placed. Now, to take us to our last point on delivery, here at GODSON AND HANSON LTD, we were able to deliver two separate complete fire pumps successfully and conveniently to Aspirang Nig Ltd, Kano and Crown Flour Mill, Ilorin in December 2020. Godson and Hanson Ltd ordered it directly from Grundfos and a very big Thanks to the Grundfos Industrial segment Technical Lead, Nigeria. It was a great delight when received from the port even though because of the weight and size, we had to employ the help of giant fork lift which was used to upload into trucks used in transporting to Kano and Ilorin. Although there were challenges faced, we were able to successfully transport deliver and mount the fire pump to our customers which has drawn high commendation and recommendation from our clients. Sometimes, it is not the profit that gives satisfaction rather the satisfaction exuded by the customer…… is just simply gratifying!
