Pump panel simulator
Has anyone built a pump panel simulator to train or test pump operators? We are looking for a simulator that is a true pump panel but doesn't actually use water.Lt. Dan

The Tennessee State Fire School used to have a series of pump simulators that were essentially analog computers. Real gauge faces, throttle verniers and valve handles were attached to rheostats, but beyond that I couldn't tell you how they worked. As I recall they were "store bought" and not homebuilt.
I don't know if they kept them after they moved into their new facility, but you might give them a call.ullrichk

Yes....Indeed there is
I am currently in college earning my Associates' Degree in Fire Science. I took Fire Hydraulics last year and we worked with a computer fire pump simulator that was extremely realistic. I am unable to think of the name right off the top of my head. I will however ask my instructor monday in class and get back to you.LREngine135
All things I say...while not always making sense are ALWAYS my opinion and only mine. They do not reflect the opinions of any department of which I am a member.

They made the three analog simulators we bought in the 1980's. They still work very good. I would think that they may have computer driven ones now.
Can't hurt to inquired with them. They are the only ones that I know that makes such things.
Stay Safe & Well out there....
