About Who We Are

Who We Are

Founded in 1985, Tornatech specializes in the conception and manufacturing of fire pump controllers listed by UL and approved by FM and in accordance with the widely recognized NFPA 20 Standard. In addition, we have developed controllers that meet various local standards and approvals such as A2P (France) and LPCB (UK), to name a few. We also manufacture industrial pump controllers and related specialty products.

What is a Fire Pump Controller?

A fire suppression system consists of a sprinkler system, a pump to supply water to the sprinkler heads, an electric motor or diesel engine and a fire pump controller. When there is a fire, there needs to be a continuous flow of water to the sprinkler heads to extinguish the fire. In some cases, when the city water pressure is not sufficient a fire pump is used to provide the necessary water pressure. The fire pump controller monitors the pressure and runs the system in the event of a fire. It provides a means to start an electric motor or diesel engine, which in turn starts the fire pump.
