Water Based Fire Sprinkler System
WATER BASED FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM is the final stage fire fighting system used in occupancies including warehouses, office buildings, storages, factories, restaurants, hotels, hospitals and various industrial plants.
This system works automatically in case of fire -spraying pressurised water on the fire and extinguishing it. The installation comprises fire pumps, water storage tanks, control valve sets, sprinkler heads, flow switches, pressure switches, pipe work and valves.
Although the working principle is simple, designing is an effective sprinkler system needs critical fire safety and engineering knowledge involving hydraulic calculations to select the right pump capacity and pipe sizes.
Also the use of right temperature and variety of fire sprinkler heads is of great significance.
As this is an expensive project - once installed, changes and modifications are difficult and costly affair.
