4.0 CLASSES OF FIRES

A generally accepted method of classification separates combustible materials
into five types:


Class A Fires
Ordinary combustible materials such as wood, cloth, paper,
rubber, and many plastis (typical for wet-based sprinkler
systems

Class B Fires
Flammable liquids, combustible liquids, petroleum greases,
tars, oil, oil-based paints, solvents, lacquers, alcohols, and
flammable gases
Class C Fires Fires that involve energized electrical equipment
Class D Fires Combustible metals such as magnesium, titanium,
zirconium, sodium, lithium, and potassium
Class K Fires Fires in cooking appliances that involve cooking oils and fats


5.0 CLASSIFICATION OF OCCUPANCY

The criteria for occupancy classification is defined in NFPA 13: The categories
are broken in five areas based on building use type:

 Light Hazard: Low quantity of combustibles with low heat release (e.g.,
churches, hospitals, museums)

 Ordinary Hazard 1: Moderate quantity of combustibles with moderate
heat release and 8-foot stockpiles (e.g., mechanical rooms, restaurant
kitchens, laundry facilities)

 Ordinary Hazard 2: Moderate quantity of combustibles with moderate
heat release and 12-foot stockpiles (e.g., stages, library large stack rooms,
repair garages)

 Extra Hazard 1: High quantity of combustibles with high heat release and
no flammable or combustible liquids (e.g., aircraft hangers, saw mills)

 Extra Hazard 2:High quantity of combustibles with high heat release and
flammable and combustible liquids (e.g., plastics processing, flammable
liquids spraying)

7. Cut the end of the pipe cleanly and squarely by using a
pipe cutter. The pipe cutter will have a thin cutter wheel,
which will slice through pipe as you guide it in the space.
Be sure to wear goggles and protective gear.

8. Ream the cut end of the pipe to remove any burrs from
the cut using a reamer, which is a cylinder – shaped
rotary cutting tool that you run smoothly across the
freshly cut edges of the pipe to remove rough edges.

9. Select your die head according to the size and type of
pipe you are threading and the thread from your
require.

10. Place the die head over the pipe on the threader.

11. Press steadily on the front of the die head, while
simultaneously pushing the handle down to start
threader. Before placing too much pressure on the
handle, check to be sure that the ratchet pawl is
engaged.

12. Use weight as leverage to apply pressure on the handle,
while holding it firmly. Be sure to maintain proper
footing and balance for maximum control. Never use a
tool or mechanism to hold the handle in place in order
to free your hands, this can be dangerous and could
result in injury.

13. Apply threading oil generously while threading.
Using on oil too thin as a substitute for threading
oil can result in sub-standard threading.

14. Cease threading when the end of the threading die
is flat against the end of the pipe. When the die is
even with the pipe, that means the correct threading
size has been reached. If you continue pushing after
this point, you will damage the thread.

15. Reverse the ratchet mechanism and turn the die head in
the opposite direction. Be care full to maintain control of
the threader as the dies are removed. Threads can be
damaged when the die head is being removed if you
don’t maintain control and move the piece smoothly.

16. Stand the pipe on end and gently tap it to remove
any particles that may be lodges within.

17. Clean the pipe with cloth, removing any oil. Be careful,
the threads will be very sharp.

18. Seal the threading with a pipe thread compound when
attaching the pipe to the connector.

19. Clean the pipe threader machine thoroughly after use so
the oils and metal pieces do not damage the machine,
which could cause sub-standard threading during your
next project.

11.4.5 Tightening Nuts of Grooved Coupling
(ref. Victaulic field installation handbook)

o Tighten Nuts: tighten the nuts evenly by alternating sides
until metal-to-metal contact occurs at the angle bolt pads.
Make sure the housings’s keys completely engage the
grooves and the offsets are equal at the bolt pads. To ensure
a rigid joint, equal and positive offsets are preferred. Note: It
is important to tighten the nuts evenly to prevent gasket
pinching. An impact wrench or standard socket wrench or
standard socket wrench can be used to bring the bolt pads
into metal-to-metal contact. Refer to the “impact wrench
usage Guidelines” section in this manual.



o Visually inspect the bolt pads at each joint to ensure metal-
to-metal contact is achieved.
o “Negative” bolt pad offsets can occur when the nuts are not
tightened evenly, which produces over-tightening of one side
and under-tightening of the other side. In addition, “negative”
offsets can occur if both nuts are under-tightened.

 Alarm Check Valve – the wet pipe system is
controlled by an alarm check valve. When a sprinkler
activates, the flow of water raises the alarm valve
clapper from its seat, thereby lifting the pilot valve disc
from the nozzle. These permits water to enter the
alarm line. A water motor gong is actuated by the flow.
An optional pressure switch may be attached on the
alarm line to provide an electric signal. The electric can
be send to the building’s main fire alarm control panel.

 Factor to be considered.

FACTOR CONSIDERATON


MOUNTING
SURFACE
Container brackets must be mounted securely to soli d load-bearing surfaces that will
support the container load.

Some installations may require additional mounting support not supplied by supplier



ENVIRONMENTAL
EFFECTS

Container(s) should be located in clean, dry, and relatively vibration-free areas. Avoid
aisle ways and other high traffic areas where physical damage or tampering is more
likely.Container(s) should never be mounted where the container could potentially
be splashed with, or submerg ed in any liquid.Do not locate containers where they
would be subject to physical damage, exposure to corrosive chemicals, or harsh
weat her conditions.


TEMPERATURE
RANGE

Container locations must be between 32oF (0 Deg C) to 130oF (54.4 Deg C)
Temperatures outside of this range may result in the system not supplying the
desired quantity of agent or accide ntal discharge.




SERVICEABILITY

In general, the larger the container, the more difficult it will be to remove it from the
system for maintenance and service.

However, smaller containers that are located in a sub -floor space, under a
computer bank,or above the ceiling over the same computer bank can be difficult
as well.
FLOOR SPACE

Consideration should be gi ven to the space available to install the container(s).

11.4.12.5 Nozzle Installation

 Always verify the nozzle identification number
(stamped on the closed end of the nozzle) matches
the nozzle part number listed on the system installation
plans. All nozzle locations should be within 1'- 0"
(0.3m) of their intended locations on the system plans.
Discharge Nozzles must be mounted in the vertical
position and can face either up or down. The piping
should be blown clear to remove chips, mill scale, or
metal shavings before the nozzles are installed.
 360° Nozzles should be located in a symmetrical, or
near symmetrical, pattern within the protected area.
Nozzle patterns need to overlap, to adequately cover
the area without any “blind spots” due to nozzle
locations. Apply to all Nozzle types.

 180° Nozzles should be located in a symmetrical, or
near symmetrical, pattern within the protected area.
180o Nozzles should be located along the
perimeter of the area – discharging along the
perimeter and toward the opposite side. These nozzles
can be located a maximum of 1’-0” (0.3 m) out from the
wall.

11.4.12.6 Conduits and Cable Installation

 Ensure all the conduits and wiring installed in FM200
system are according to the project specification and
approved drawing ½” or ¾” conduits are bent by a
bending machine. Field wiring (16WG) cables may be
installed to an EMP conduit either manually or with the
assistance of the pulling mechanism. Route all field
wiring through the appropriate conduit knockouts.
Provide adequate wire length for stain relief. After the
pulling the wire into the control panel enclosure, verify
wire for ground-fault absence and acceptable
impedances prior to connecting the initiating and
indicating circuits.

11.4.12.7 FM200 Panel Installation

 The mounting location of the control panel enclosure is
very important. Vibration, dust, moisture,
electromagnetic interference, and radio frequency
interference are all types of problems that could
adversely affect the successful operation of the
equipment. Choose a mounting location that is free
from environmental problems. The control panel should
be installed so that viewing window is approximately
60” above the floor. Do not install in an environment
that exceeds the temperature ranges. Ensure the
FM200 panel and alarm devices are installed
according to the system layout in that room. Test the
key to make sure all the key functions are working
properly.

11.4.12.8 Pneumatic Test Procedures

 Pneumatic pressure test has to be conducted on FM200
pipe work as per NFPA 2001 Chapter 7 – Inspection,
Testing, Maintenance and Training.

 7.7.2.2.12 - The piping shall be pneumatically tested in
a closed circuit for a period of 10 minutes at 40 psi
(276 kpa). At the end of 10 minutes, the pressure drop
shall not exceed 20 percent of the test pressure.

 It is always preferable (and the right practice) to test the
pressure for each system or network.

 Plug all nozzle openings.

 Make sure the tightness of main joints physically.

 Leave two ends of the network open.

 An approved pressure gauge is to be used which has
got a reading to 100 psi.

 Connect pressure gauge to the lower end of the
network.

 Connect an isolation valve (ball type) to the other end.

 Pneumatic pressure can be obtained by Air Compressor
– Air Supply.

 Connect either the compressor to the other end.

 Pressurize the pipe work.

 Check the pressure gauge reading.

 Once the pressure gauge reaches 40 psi, close the
isolation valve.

 Note the time.

 After 10 minutes, check the pressure gauge.

 If the pressure gauge remains intact, the test is
PASSED.

 Visual leakage or pressure drop less than 32 psi
indicate a failure of test. In this case, check the joints
of the network and tighten the lose joints and conduct
the test again.

11.4.12.9 Integration of FM200 Systems

 FM200 Fire Suppression Systems, when installed to
protect electrical/electronic hazards or high value
assets, will be fully effective if and only if the system is
integrated with other essential services in the building
like HVAC System, Main Fire Alarm Systems, BMS
Systems, Emergency Power Shut Off for vital electrical
equipments, etc.,.

 Also, the room has to be completely sealed so that
FM200 discharged will not escape. Escaping any
amount of FM200 agent will result a lower concentration
which would be considerable especially FM200
concentration for the room is a minimum as 7% volume
by volume.

 7.7.2.3* Review of Enclosure Integrity – all total
flooding systems shall have the enclosure examined
and tested to locate and effectively seal any significant
air leaks that could result in a failure of the enclosure to
hold the specific agent concentration level for the
specified holding period. Quantitative results shall be
obtained and recorded to indicate that the specified
agent concentration for the specified duration of
protection is in compliance with Section 5.6, using an
approved blower fan unit or other means as approved
by the authority having jurisdiction.
 HVAC Systems should be turned off prior to the gas
discharge and also any openings related with HVAC
Systems are to be closed to assure a complete sealing
of the room.
 Any openings of the duct to the room in fresh air or
return ducts are to be closed completely by a
motorized fire damper. Most of the motorized fire
dampers are of spring return actuator type (fail safe).
The actuator of the damper will get a signal from the
pre-discharge (2
nd
Stage) relay and then will close the
damper to ensure the total sealing of the room.

 Wall mounted Motorized Damper for opening of duct
on wall - examined and tested to locate and then
effectively seal any significant air leaks that could result
in a failure of the enclosure to hold the specified agent
concentration level for the specified holding period.
Quantitative results shall be obtained and recorded
to indicate that the specified agent concentration for
the specified duration of protection is in compliance
with Section 5.6, using an approved blower fan unit or
other means as approved by the authority having
jurisdiction.

 Multi-opening of HVAC Duct – for multiple openings,
it would be better duct just outside the room or inside
the room so that the multiple dampers can be avoided.
For that purpose, In-Line Motorized Fire Damper can
be utilized.



 If, for any reason, the in-line damper can be installed
only far from the room, then the volume of the ducting
till the damper will have to be added to the room
volume for calculation of FM200 agent.

 Pre-Discharge Relay will be connected to the Damper (if
it is a failsafe or spring return actuator) to close prior to
discharge. Damper can be reset after the hold time
after discharge and after the FM200 system is reset.

 Sealing the Hazard – Enclosure – as per NFPA 2001,
the room or the hazard to be protected by FM200
system should be properly sealed in order to hold the
FM200 agent discharged into the room for the specific
hold time. This document analyzes different scenarios
of sealing the hazard.

 Sealing Void: (Rooms with false ceiling) – unless
specified, ceiling void normally contains lighting circuits
and HVAC ducts. They don’t need to be protected by
FM200 generally. Ceiling void can be sealed properly
and isolated from the room protected by FM200. For
that purpose, false ceiling should be made of fire rated
air tight materials. Ceiling tiles (perforated or non-
perforated) cannot be considered to fall in this
category. When the ceiling void cannot be isolated
comply from the room, theceiling void should be
protected bey FM200 system. But, in this case, it is to
be made sure that the walls are to be extended to the
ceiling slab so that the complete isolation of the room
with ceiling void is obtained from other rooms.



 Raised Floor – are normally installed in the control
rooms, computer rooms, server rooms, UPS rooms,
Data rooms, Telephone rooms, etc., for running the
data cables. In this case, floor voids are considered as
electronic hazards and are to be protected by FM200
systems.

5. Leak check around the pressure gauge port using
Snoop leak test fluid or equivalent. If a leak is
detected, remove the Pressure Gauge Assembly
from the ProInert vaolve and remove the lubricant
and contaminants from the O-Ring, threads and
valve port using isopropyl alcohol and soft clean
cloth. Lubricate the ORing with Molycoat 55 or
equal land reinstall. Leak test around the pressure
gauge port. If a leak is detected, remove the
Pressure Gauge Assembly from the Inert Valve,
remove the O-Ring, install a new ORing, lubricate
the O-Ring with Molycoat 55 or equal, install the
Pressure Gauge Assembly in the ProInert valve,

 Warning: When removing the Pressure Gauge
Assembly from the pressurized ProInert cylinder, a
“pop” sound will occur. This is the result of a minor
amount of gas being trapped in the pressure
gauge port; this is a normal occurrence. If a
pressure leak continues after backing-off the
Pressure Gauge Adaptor five turns (O-Ring is
visible), the Schrader core did not reseat, do not
remove the Pressure Gauge Assembly, reinstall
and follow the proper procedure to empty cylinder
and replace Shrader core. Do Not attempt to
remove the pressure gauge from adoptor.

11.4.14.7 Interface

 Double knock system shall be with (1) sensing of heat
(bulb fuses) by the sprinkler & (2) detection of
smoke/fire through detectors.

 Flame Detector interface to fire alarm system

 Heat Detector interface to the fire alarm system


11.4.15 Automatic Pre-action Sprinkler System

 As per NFPA 25: Chapter 3.6.4.5. A preaction sprinkler
system employing automatic sprinklers attach to a piping
system that contain air that might or might not be under
pressure, with a supplemental detection system installed in
the same areas as the sprinklers.

 Pre-action sprinkler system shall be designed in accordance
with Exhibit “D2” 211316 – Dry-Pipe Sprinkler Systems.

 These systems are specially designed for the protection of
high value “Business Critical” areas where sensitive electrical
equipment or goods are stored to provide prior warning of
system discharge or prevent system discharge caused by
accidental damage to a sprinkler or system pipe work.

 A pre-action sprinkler system comprises a standard deluge
valve sprinkler system and an independent system of heat or
smoke detectors installed in the same areas as the
sprinklers.

 The deluge valve is a diagphragm style valve that depends
upon air in the diaghragm chamber to hold the diagram
closed against the water supply. Any accidental damage to a
sprinkler or a detector head in a “non-fire” situation will not
bring the contol valve into action but will cause both visual
and audible alarms to be raised to alert the building’s fire
safety officer to the situation.

 In the event of a fire, when two or more detector heads
operate, they send a signal to the main fire control panel.
On receipt of this signal, the fire control panel operates
the solenoid release valve, releasing the pressure off the
diaphragm unit to open the Deluge valve and discharge
water into the system in readiness for a sprinkler head to
open when it reaches its designated operating temperature.

 This process provides the building’s fire safety
officer with prior warning of the impending event
so that the Company’s established fire control
plan can be immediately initiated to minimize the
impact of the fire threat.

 The size of the deluge valve, its flow rate, the system water
supply pressure and type of detection system are all
determined by the size and type of fire risk involved.

 Pre-action fire sprinkler systems employ the basic concept of
a dry pipe system in that water is not normally contained
within the pipes. The difference, however, is that water is
held from piping by an electrically operated valve, known as
a pre-action valve. Valve operation is controlled by
independent flame, heat, or smoke detection.

 Two separate events must happen to initiate sprinkler
discharge. First, the detection system must identify a
developing fire and then open the pre-action valve. This
allows water to flow into system piping, which effectively
creates a wet pipe sprinkler system. Second, individual
sprinkler heads must release to permit water flow onto the
fire.
 In some instances, the pre-action system may be set up with
a double interlock in which pressurized air or nitrogen is
added to system piping. The purpose of this feature is two-
fold: first to monitor piping for leaks and second to hold water
from system piping in the event of inadvertent detector
operation. The most common application for this system type
is in freezer warehouses.

11.4.16 Installation Deluge System

 As per NFPA 25: Chapter 3.6.4.3. a sprinkler
system employing open sprinklers that are attached
to a piping system that is connected to a water
supply through a deluge valve that is opened by the
operation of the detection system installed in the
same areas as the sprinklers. When this valve
opens, water flows into the piping system &
discharges from all sprinkler.

 Similar to a pre-action system except the sprinkler
head are open and the pipe is not pressurized with air.

 Deluge system are connected to a water supply
through a deluge valve that is opened by the
operation of a smoke or heat detection system.

 The detection system is installed in the same area as
the sprinklers.

 Deluge system are used in places that are
considered high hazard areas.

 Deluge systems are used in the protection of large
Aircraft Hangers as one primary means of fire
protection.
 Deluge system are needed where high velocity
suppression is necessary to prevent fire spread.

 The deluge valve must be opened as signaled by a
fire alarm system. The initiation device signals the
fire alarm panel, which in turn signals the deluge
valve to open, allowing water to enter the piping
system. Water flows from all sprinklers
simultaneously.

11.4.16.1 Interface
 Deluge system are used for fast, total application
of water in Extra-Hazardous areas and in water-
spray systems. Deluge valves are essentially
check valves with a clapper latched in the closed
position (see picture below). The actuating
system unlatches the valve, allowing the water to
enter the piping system and flow out the heads.


 Deluge valve employs a single differential
diagphragm in which the water pressure bears on
both sides, while the top side adjoins a closed
chamber (see picture below). The actuating
system opens the closed chamber, allowing the
water to push the diaphragm up and off the water
seat, releasing water to the system.

 A modification of the valve uses a pressure
regulator that maintains (on the outlet side) any
predetermined pressure less than the available
system pressure (see picture below). This
allows the system to discharge at a constant rate.
