Vertical Turbine Fire Pumps Excellent Engineering Solutions Maximum reliability. Proven performance. For over 70 years Floway has been producing vertical turbine pumps for customers throughout the world. During this time our vertical turbine fire pumps have become known for maximum reliability and proven performance. Floway fire pumps are Listed, Approved, or Certified by the following standards or approving authorities to meet or exceed NFPA-20: s Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. (UL) (C-UL) s Factory Mutual (FM) s ASL (Singapore) Our fire pumps are designed to provide the best fire protection possible. If a fire occurs, a reliable fire protection system is often the difference between minor inconveniences and major expenses due to property damage, destroyed records, and plant or factory downtime. Insurance companies worldwide recognize the value of Listed, Approved or Certified fire protection systems. In many high risk situations insurance savings alone will pay for the entire fire protection system. Floway fire pumps are used worldwide to protect properties ranging from offshore platforms to refineries, power plants, industrial operations, commercial buildings, military installations and rapid transit systems. Our main manufacturing facility in Fresno, California consists of over 200,000 square feet of production area. Support is provided by a global network of regional managers, manufacturer’s representatives, agents and authorized service centers.
