Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) developed the FR FH, FF and MSF series of pumps, exclusively for fire-fighting applications. These pumps have recently been used on the Atal Rohtang Pass highway tunnel project in Manali in Himachal Pradesh, in India.
The Atal Rohtang Pass highway tunnel is the world’s longest high-altitude road tunnel at 10,000 feet above sea level, and located in the PirPanjal range of Himalayas. KBL has supplied fire-fighting pump sets for deployment along the 9 km tunnel. The tunnel was opened in October by Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi.
All KBL fire pumps comply with the highest quality standards. The company’s fire pump solutions include end suction pumps, split-case pumps, multi-stage multi-outlet pumps, and vertical turbine pumps, and pre-packaged pump houses.
Most countries stipulate that fire pumps meet the standards prescribed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the USA. KBL designs its fire pump-sets as per NFPA-20 specifications to meet the stringent fire safety norms and ensure cost-effectiveness. The FR FH, FF and MSF series of pumps are FM approved/UL listed.
