Test #00-010, Portable Fire Pump W.S.Darley Honda Engine Driven 2BE6.5H

DAMAGE CONTROL ENGINEERING TEST FACILITY

(DCETF)
NAVAL RESERVE CENTER, BALTIMORE
TEST DATA

TEST NUMBER: 00-010 DATE: 10/25/00
TEST TITLE: Portable Fire pump W.S.Darley Honda Engine Driven 2BE6.5H
RESULTS: The portable fire pump had a pumping capacity of approximate of 185 gallon/minute with a ~15 lift and 190 gallons/minute with no lift. The pump weights approximately 60 lbs. The Honda engine runs on regular unleaded gas and is very easy to start. The pump has a hand pump for priming suction line; this is a nice feature when pumping from a lift. Overall, I think this pump is very good or even better than the P-100 because of being lighter, easy to start and having a hand-priming pump. STATUS: Completed Phase 1

DESCRIPTION OF TEST: Filled W1 compartment to ~ 4 ft.1.
1. Set up fire pump to take suction from the drain line and open drain line from W1 compartment. Connected discharges line from fire pump and connect back into the manifold to fill compartment B1. This process was used to determine the flow rate of the fire pump w/o lift. Next test was to determine the flow rate of the pump with a ~15 lift by placing the pump on topside and pump out of W1 back into B1.
