The pulp and paper market, valued at USD519 billion in 2019, is projected to reach USD680 billion by 2027. With this rapid growth, safety standards, particularly fire protection, have become a priority. Paper dust, a byproduct of the manufacturing process, is highly combustible, leading to the risk of dust explosions at manufacturing facilities. A paper pulp mill in eastern Canada recognized the need for enhanced fire protection at their facility. The existing system, a vertical turbine pump, was insufficient. The facility managers sought a more comprehensive solution that would meet the future demands of the mill and provide peace of mind.

About The Customer
The customer is a paper pulp mill located in eastern Canada. As part of the rapidly growing pulp and paper market, the mill is committed to maintaining high safety standards, particularly in terms of fire protection. The mill produces paper dust, a highly combustible byproduct, which increases the risk of dust explosions at the facility. Recognizing the need for enhanced fire protection, the facility managers sought a comprehensive solution that would meet the future demands of the mill and provide peace of mind. The existing fire protection system, a vertical turbine pump, was deemed insufficient for the mill's needs.
Xylem distributor Pompe Saguenay designed and installed a comprehensive fire protection solution for the mill. The solution consisted of an AC Fire Pump vertical turbine FP18DMC pump that delivered increased fire protection. AC Fire Pump vertical turbines are designed for standpipe, sprinkler, chemical mitigation, and hydrant systems. AC Fire Pump, a member of the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA) and the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA), has been manufacturing fire pumps and systems since the 1880s. They offer a wide range of state-of-the-art fire pumps and systems, including prefabricated packages and house units, and space-saving designs that meet every fire protection need. The modular construction of these systems provides flexibility in selecting the right pump for each application.
