The Wallace & Tiernan® DIOX-A 250 Chlorine Dioxide Generator from Siemens installed, tested and commissioned by the Fluid Management team is the first machine in Sri Lanka and India to be used for eliminating legionellae to provide safe drinking water for the airport staff and visitors.
KSB Fire system pumps and Control Panels were also supplied, tested and commissioned by the Fluid Management Team. Three jockey pumps, one electric and one diesel pump have been installed in the main fire pump house. These pumps are connected to the fire distribution system including the internal building sprinkler fire suppression system, fire hose reels and fire hydrants. All the five pumps are synchronized and automatically controlled to maintain the pressure of the distribution system in the event a fire occurs in the airport premises. This is the first set of UL/FM approved pumps installed in Sri Lanka conforming to international standards and testing benchmarks. In addition, KSB pumps for the drinking water supply, sewerage and wastewater system have been implemented in the same way as the fire pump system with a range of valves for all the systems.
