Col­lab­o­ra­tion Pow­er: BU Pow­er Sys­tems and Börger

By 29. June 2023 No Comments

In dis­as­ter con­trol, fast, uncom­pli­cat­ed and effec­tive action is essen­tial. This requires tech­nol­o­gy that can be relied upon. Many local groups of the Fed­er­al Agency for Tech­ni­cal Relief (THW), fire brigades and plant fire brigades rely on mobile high-per­for­mance pumps from Börg­er, which are dri­ven by Perkins engines.

Börg­er GmbH has been man­u­fac­tur­ing high-qual­i­ty rotary lobe pumps for more than 35 years. The pos­i­tive dis­place­ment pumps are avail­able in 25 sizes with flow rates between 1 and 1,450 m²/h. Each pump is man­u­fac­tured in a mod­u­lar sys­tem. Each pump is con­fig­ured indi­vid­u­al­ly for the respec­tive appli­ca­tion using the mod­u­lar prin­ci­ple. This means that the pumps can be used in almost all branch­es of indus­try, in munic­i­pal and envi­ron­men­tal tech­nol­o­gy, on the high seas or in the agri­cul­tur­al sector.

The space-sav­ing design, the prob­lem-free pump­ing in snore mode, the self-prim­ing up to 8 metres with­out vac­u­um device and the pos­si­bil­i­ty to oper­ate a Börg­er rotary lobe pump with dif­fer­ent dri­ve options make the pump the ide­al mobile pump. It does not mat­ter whether it is used as a portable hand truck pump or a high-per­for­mance pump on a truck trail­er — the design and man­u­fac­ture is car­ried out by Börg­er “from a sin­gle source”, from the base frame to the pump tech­nol­o­gy and the con­trol technology.

Espe­cial­ly for the com­plete­ly self-suf­fi­cient high-per­for­mance pumps, Börg­er relies on Perkins engines. This is also the case with the high-per­for­mance pump of the plant fire brigade of a chem­i­cal company.

High per­for­mance pump of a plant fire brigade

The “chem­i­cal giant” has installed its own plant fire brigade at a Ger­man site. To ensure the exter­nal sup­ply of extin­guish­ing water for feed­ing vehi­cles, sprin­kler sys­tems and fire throw­ers, the plant fire brigade has pur­chased a mobile Börg­er high-per­for­mance pump.

The pump is mount­ed on a 5.5 t truck trail­er and is dri­ven by a Perkins® 1204F-E44TTA IOPU engine. Thanks to the 129 kW pow­er­ful engine with a torque of 750 Nm, the pump deliv­ers up to 192 m3/h. The fuel tank is inte­grat­ed into the base frame of the pump to save space. In case of fire, the pump feeds the fire engines with water from a fire water tank or the near­by river.

Mobile flood pump

“Perkins engines are absolute­ly reli­able and are also used in our pumps for flood fight­ing. In addi­tion to THW task forces and fire brigades, also numer­ous water asso­ci­a­tions rely on the reli­able Börg­er-Perkins com­bi­na­tion. The easy-to-main­tain pumps with flow rates of up to 1,450 m3/h are used here. The high-per­for­mance pumps are mount­ed on trail­ers and are dri­ven by Perkins engines. In case of flood­ing, the pump is used at strate­gi­cal­ly impor­tant loca­tions and pro­tects res­i­den­tial areas from flood­ing,” says Anne Börg­er-Olthoff, man­ag­ing direc­tor of Börg­er GmbH. “It is not only the reli­a­bil­i­ty of the motors that is impor­tant to us. We can now look back on sev­er­al years of trust­ing coop­er­a­tion with our Perkins dis­trib­u­tor BU Pow­er Systems.”
