Advantages and disadvantages of the fire pump's location of the fire truck
According to the installation position of the fire pump, the fire truck can be divided into four types: front type, center type, rear type and side type. Domestic fire trucks are mostly center or rear. What is the difference between the center pump and the rear pump, and what are their advantages and disadvantages?
The central pump fire truck refers to the fire pump installed in the middle of the fire truck. The advantage of this arrangement is that the transmission route is short, the transmission efficiency is high, and the load distribution of the fire axle is reasonable; the disadvantage is that the angle of the pump drive shaft is larger , pump maintenance is not convenient
The rear pump fire truck refers to the fire pump installed at the rear of the fire truck. The advantage of this arrangement is that the maintenance is convenient, the proximity of the pump is good, and the angle of the pump drive shaft is small; the disadvantage is that the transmission efficiency is long, the transmission efficiency is low, and the axle load distribution is easy to make the rear axle too heavy.
If you focus on maintenance you can choose the rear-mounted type one, if you consider about the shaft loading distribution, you can purchase the center-mounted one.
