Flow Testing to Determine the
Maximum System Flow Capacity

Private firewater systems at industrial facilities can be modified and repaired on a regular basis. Several have been built in a piecemeal fashion with new loops added as new units or equipment are installed. Additionally, it is known that the flow capacity of firewater piping diminishes with time. Flow analysis and testing are required to ensure that these critical systems can protect your personnel and valuable assets, are operating optimally, and that finite capital or expense funds are utilized in the most cost effective manner.

Specialty computer codes are used to model and evaluate firewater system flow capabilities. Procedures are developed and field tests are conducted to determine current flow capacities by region. These tested flow capacities, when incorporated into the computer model, provide a calibrated flow model that can be used to find bottlenecks and area flow capacities. Additionally, the computer model can be used to evaluate proposed system modifications to meet flow demand requirements. One facility recently used their model in a risk assessment to determine regional flow capacities when taking various header segments out of service for maintenance work. Others have used their firewater system models to evaluate compliance with industry standards.
