Fire pump test rig

Our fire pump test rigs meet the requirements for LP and HP firefighting centrifugal pumps according to EN1028-2002.

etewe’s test facilities built for testing firefighting centrifugal pumps are also used for testing immersion pumps, hoses and fittings. They are particularly suited for training engineers and instruction.

As a system partner, etewe supports you in the modernization and expansion of existing test facilities:

We advise on the design, develop economical, ready-to-use test facilities, provide the appropriate testing software and offer full service – everything from a single source.
