Why Charlotte Switched
With Boston, Charlotte and many others switching to Darley pumps, the question has been asked, Why?
Boston Fire Department Chooses Darley Pumps
Boston has become the most recent major fleet to wave the Darley Pump banner. After thoroughly reviewing and researching all available manufacturers and products on the market, Boston selected the Darley PSM pump.
We understand the importance of keeping your pump operational, which is why we ship most Darley parts orders within 24 hours.
Silicon Carbide Mechanical Seal
Our mechanical seal features an extremely hard (72 Rockwell) and heat dissipative silicon carbide stationary face. Resists wear and dry running much better than conventional Ni-resist and tungsten carbide materials. Now standard on all pumps except for double suction LDM and EM. Over 35,000 in service currently with an unparalleled service record.
AutoCool™ & Magnatrans™
Darley pump transmissions are the strongest in the market at 19,230 ft-lb torque rating and use helical cut gears as standard on all transmissions to limit noise and maximize strength. The patented AutoCool™ ensures oil cooling without the possibility of water contamination.
Darley’s exclusive heater core helps cool your apparatus’s engine in the warm summer months and help protect your pump from freezing in the harshest winter climates.
Self-Locking Discharge Valves
Since the 1960’s, Darley has been manufacturing the best discharge ball valve on the market. Designed with a self-locking feature, the valve allows for stable hands free operation. The valve also features a stainless steel ball and a bronze seat. Are you tired of replacing your ball valves year after year? Our ball valve can be rebuilt in minutes resulting cost savings and continued performance. Another added benefit of the Darley ball valve is the adjustable handle, which can be clocked in 45 degree increments to allow for varying applications.
Discharge Check Valve
Darley’s discharge check valve is designed to improve attack time. By isolating the discharge plumbing from the pump cavity, the pump can be primed with open discharge gates. When the pump achieves prime, the discharged water forces the check valve to an opened position. The simplicity of the design allows for easy maintenance and trouble free operation.
Vacuum Cast Impellers
Durable and efficient vacuum cast impeller, balanced to fit a 10-splined stainless steel pump. High lift, high flow, less porosity. Highly efficient twisted Francis vane vs a standard straight vane. Broached rather than keyed for maximum strength and durability and hand balanced for the smoothest possible dynamic performance.
Darley Cost Of Ownership
