A pump is a device that moves fluids liquids or gases , or sometimes slurries , by mechanical action, typically converted from electrical energy into hydraulic energy. Pumps can be classified into three major groups according to the method they use to move the fluid: direct lift , displacement , and gravity pumps. Pumps operate by some mechanism typically reciprocating or rotary , and consume energy to perform mechanical work moving the fluid. Pumps operate via many energy sources, including manual operation, electricity , engines , or wind power , and come in many sizes, from microscopic for use in medical applications, to large industrial pumps. Mechanical pumps serve in a wide range of applications such as pumping water from wells , aquarium filtering , pond filtering and aeration , in the car industry for water-cooling and fuel injection , in the energy industry for pumping oil and natural gas or for operating cooling towers and other components of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. In the medical industry , pumps are used for biochemical processes in developing and manufacturing medicine, and as artificial replacements for body parts, in particular the artificial heart and penile prosthesis.
Using an in-the-street, practical approach, Spurgeon teaches readers how to develop proper fire streams as well as how they relate to overall fireground strategies. He covers hydraulics and pumps extensively--from the properties of water to its supply to pumping to sprinkler systems and foams. So readers can put what theyve learned into practice, Spurgeon provides both end-of-chapter tests and practice sets at the end of the book, complete with answers so that readers can check their knowledge. Some sustained energy appears to reverberate in the reciter s voice. It also serves as networks, with no controls in individual dwellings. Other sources used Included the American Missionary Association.
This hour class is designed for firefighters who are assigned to or may be assigned to operate fire department apparatus in the normal course of their duties. This course is designed to develop firefighters understanding of mechanical principles of fire pumps and their controls, principles of water and water systems, intake and discharge hydraulics, fire stream production, relay pumping operations, care and maintenance of pumper apparatus, and troubleshooting. Students will practice producing effective fire streams from hydrants, relay operations, and drafting from static sources. Students will also practice determining pump discharge pressures for hydraulic situations that range from single line problems to multiple-line relay operations to provide a solid understanding of fire ground hydraulics and practical solutions to apply these concepts to their department.

Over the years, some highly respected people have studied, researched, and written about fi re service hydraulics. These texts have provided much of my knowledge of the subject, but my approach to explaining this science is directed more toward the in-thestreet, practical side of the fi eld. This book is broken down into two sections. The fi rst section deals with the theory and practice of pencil-sharp hydraulics. The purpose of this section is to give you, the reader, the basic understanding of water usage in the fi re service.
