Armstrong Fluid Technology is launching its Fire Manager, a cloud-based service that tracks performance and provides diagnostic warnings.

Fire ManagerArmstrong Fluid Technology launched Fire Manager, a cloud-based service that enables Active Performance Management in its Design Envelope Fire Pumps.

The new service tracks pump performance and provides early diagnostic warnings and automated reports that help customers make informed decisions. Facility managers can take immediate steps to deliver the most efficient and safest fire safety system performance.

Specifically, Fire Manager:

  • Records data points on municipal supply pressure
  • Makes digital recordings of pump operation and related data
  • Provides pump analytics and insights to support condition-based maintenance
  • Provides timely notifications and alerts for any impending issues in pump performance
  • Increases reliability and safety supported by real-time and historic test and performance data

Fire Manager delivers several unique points of value to facilities, including:

  • Cost savings from reduced need for PRVs (up to $1,500 per sprinkler branch)
  • No drain requirements for any of the PRVs not required
  • Space savings in the mechanical room
  • Simpler, faster installation
  • Elimination of safety factors for supply pressure variation
  • Ability to predict and report potential equipment failure that could result in expensive damage and/or loss of life
  • Reduction of the number of zones in a sprinkler system and the potential elimination of storage tanks
  • Help with fire systems having large differences between static and residual pressures
  • Increased design flexibility

In addition to providing important new safety benefits, Armstrong’s Design Envelope Fire Pumps hold the distinction of being the first self-regulating variable-speed fire pump to meet NFPA-20 (2019 Edition), Section 4.8 standards.
