This standard applies for centrifugal pumps with priming devices for fire-fighting use supplied separately without driver and couplings. Fire-fighting centrifugal pumps with primer are defined as terminated by their inlet and outlet connections as well as by their shaft ends. This standard applies for fire-fighting centrifugal pumps with priming devices for use under ambient temperatures between -15 °C and 40 °C. This standard specifies the classification and general requirements for fire-fighting centrifugal pumps with priming devices with a nominal delivery rate of up to 6000 l/min. This standard deals with significant hazards listed in clause 4, hazardous situations and events during the commissioning, operation and maintenance of fire-fighting centrifugal pumps with priming devices, used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer or the manufacturer's authorized representative. In addition, fire-fighting centrifugal pumps with priming devices shall conform as appropriate to EN 292 for hazards not covered by this standard.
