  • Choice of calculation modes – hydraulically most remote nozzle, inlet pressure/flowrate, specific nozzle flowrate and area coverage

  • Block/Break of pipes to simulate closed valves and burst pipes

  • Overboard dump and minimum flow valves

  • Pipe schedules – built-in and user-defined pipe schedules, lined pipes, multiple pipe schedules in one system

  • Multiple fire scenarios and scenario manager

  • Pumps – sizing of pumps or user-defined vendor’s pump curves

  • Multiple pump scenarios

  • Choice of pipe or node elevations

  • Output – easy, readable output as tables, or display of data and results on the schematic
  • Underlay – import of drawings for use as underlays for schematic drawings
  • Copy and paste from spreadsheets

PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler Module addresses the hydraulic analysis requirements of virtually all national and international standards. Ideal for the design of systems used in critical applications such as offshore platforms, FPSO’s, petrochemical plants, power plants, refineries, ships and airport hangars.

The Spray/Sprinkler module was specifically developed for the design of fire protection systems for these industries in compliance with the NFPA and other rules.  It is the choice of some of the largest operating and engineering companies around the globe and is specified by many.  Fire protection systems in these industries are complex and their design requires a sophisticated and comprehensive program for hydraulic analysis.
