Engineering : Fire Pump & Booster System Sizing

LOGIN

 

#1 Determining pump discharge pressure

Pressure required at the highest elevation
Static head - elevation in feet from pump to highest fixture divided by 2.31
Friction loss in system - 10 PSI is usually safe for fire pumps & booster systems
Pressure drop through building components, i.e. blackflow preventer
(Add 5 PSI to above for booster systems only for internal loss)
Total lines 1 through 4 to obtain system pressure
Deduct minimum suction pressure
Pump discharge pressure

#2 Flow test information and voltage

Static pressure (no flow)
Residual pressure at GPM
Distance from flow information from building in feet
Voltage for site /60/3

#3 System capacity for booster systems
