How We Set Ourselves Apart From The Competition

Fire pumps are tested through a series of flow rate percentages to assure they generate proper GPM and pressures. Each pump test lasts approximately 1.5 to 2 hours depending upon type, size and conditions. IIA's mobile pump testing units are designed to allow us to test the fire departments apparatus on location with minimal downtime, and limited use of municipal water, water tankers, or cisterns. We use clean, cool water to test your pumps, minimizing potential damage. IIA's testing includes:

  • Visual Inspection (undercarriage)
  • Gathering of critical apparatus, engine, and pump information
  • Capacity test, 100% at 150 PSI for 20 minutes
  • Overload test, 100% at 165 psi for 5 minutes
  • 70% test, at 200 PSI for 10 minutes
  • 50% test at 200 psi, for 10 minutes
  • Gauge accuracy
  • Relief valve operation

Your Silent Partner In Safety

Our mobile pump testing equipment is quality machined to ensure that testing is accurate and performed according to complex NFPA specifications. We perform testing from draft as required by NFPA from our onboard rolling reservoir. Because we draft from and pump water back into our mobile 3000 gallon tank unit, we reuse water saving your town money and conserving resources. Instead of drafting from lakes, ponds or streams, we use clean, clear, cool water to help assure no damaging materials get into your pump.

Each test is supervised by a certified EVT (Emergency Vehicle Technician) professional who adheres to all EVT and strict NFPA standards. This affords our clients the knowledge that their equipment is being tested to the highest standards, accepted by ISO, and will be evaluated in accordance with required operating metrics needed to give you the confidence that your apparatus will perform as required. All pump testing is recorded electronically on-site into the IIA Safety Testing Database that keeps track of your current and prior year service testing details. This information is provided to you in any desired output - both paper and electronic - and can be retrieved electronically by you 24/7!
