DATA SHEET | FIREMIKS FM 4000-GP-F


GEAR PUMP TYPE FOR FIXED INSTALLATIONS (WITH AUTOMATIC FLUSHING)
FM 4000-1-GP-F, FM 4000-2-GP-F, FM 4000-3-GP-F

Dosing system for firefighting for fixed installations connected to a concentrate tank with gravity feed to dosing
pump. Consists mainly of two volumetric parts; a Water motor and a Gear pump. Equipped as standard with a
Manual air relief valve. Flushing of dosing pump is done automatically when the concentrate inlet is closed
with 3-way ball valve, (no 4 on Flow chart).
Optional: 1) Automatic air relief valve, suitable for fixed installations with suction from below the unit,
2) Separate selector valve and suction tube for suction from alternative concentrate supply,
3) Dosing return valve to tank.

Note: For illustration only. Refer to Dimensional Drawing for accurate representation of each model.

Min water flow rate: 800 lpm (211 US gpm) *
Max inlet operating pressure: 12 bar (175 psi)
Factory tested pressure: 24 bar (350 psi)
Suction height: 0 - 3 meters (0 - 10 ft) **
Operating temperature: 1C to 50 C (34F to122F)
Storage temperature, dry conditions: -30C to 50C (-22 to 122F)
Connections water motor Cut Groove (ANSI/AWWA C 606-04) Cut Groove 5 - DN 125

*Note: Minimum water flow rate varies depending on system pressure, viscosity properties of the concentrate and dosing rate.
**Note: Suction height varies depending on properties of concentrate, water flow rate and suction pipe parameters.
