Amarillo Gear’s gearboxes have been protecting lives and property for decades. In order to serve the wide array of needs associated with listed and non-listed fire water systems, Amarillo Gear offers a variety of configurations and options.
The Amarillo Gear fire pump drives are available in either a hollow or solid output shaft. The hollow output shaft configurations are listed with Factory Mutual (FM) for gearboxes through 1,200 HP (895 kW). Every Amarillo Gear pump drive is tested and passes our ISO 9001:2018 quality system’s requirements before it is shipped.
For short set pumps, the pump drives are fitted with a light thrust bearing arrangement. This system can also operate if the pump’s thrust is up, instead of down. Additionally, there are thrust arrangements suited for standard and heavy thrust loads.
It is our pleasure to customize testing to satisfy your fire pump system needs. Our gearboxes can be load tested (power and thrust). We’re also happy to run an extended duration of the FM required, no-load spin test.
Whatever your fire water pump requires, Amarillo Gear has a solution.
