Chicago Pumping Station Gets ‘Pumped Up’ for Future Needs
During construction of a Midwestern professional football stadium, contractors needed a reliable fire suppression system with pressurization capacity of 2,000 gpm at 95 psi to protect die-hard fans even on the coldest Sunday afternoons. Greg Trombold, Trombold Equipment Company (Patterson Representative), recommended Patterson’s Model 8x6 YS horizontal split case fire pump as the MVP on this project. “Patterson’s quality and very competitive price were paramount in our consideration,” Trombold reports, “and its very timely delivery reinforced our good decision.” Now eight years later, the Patterson pumping system is still first string. “It has been extremely reliable,” says Kevin Waters, mechanical technician. In addition to standard monthly inspections, weekly test cycles monitor amps, volts, packing, relief valve and bearings. “It has been really simple to take care of,” says Waters. “We’ve had no problems. It has been a good system for us.” Always being at the top of your game...that’s MVP performance. And that’s Patterson Sentinel Series Fire Pumps.
