Fire Suppression Systems

Flowmaster V7 General Systems provides Systems Engineers with the ability to design and validate safety systems during new build or retrofit and also to ensure efficient ongoing operation throughout the maintenance cycle.

Determine proper flow rates to each section of the facility using the Flow Balancing capability. Flowmaster enables users to specify volumetric flow rate for components most suited to the use of balancing flows such as; control valves, orifices, pipes, pumps, reservoirs and accumulators. If using dry fire suppression systems, Flowmaster V7 priming capability can help you to understand the amount of time it takes for the system to deliver water to each of the distribution points.

Scenarios where you could use Flowmaster to meet a design requirements:

  • Evaluating whether the system meets desired flow rates
  • To investigate the impact of different components on the overall safety system
  • Correct sizing of components to ensure efficiency and low operating cost
  • To understand the effects of different operating conditions on the overall safety system
  • Failure scenarios for sudden transient events to ensure they are within the system limits

Key Safety Systems Modelling & Simulation Features:

  • Steady State and Transient flow analysis using a wide range of heat transfer options
  • Examine system pressures, flow rates and temperatures
  • Wide range of hydraulic system components
  • Flow balancing module for regulating system flow rates
  • Design out pressure surge and cavitation
