SYSTEM CALCULATIONS

DATA ROOM:-

Room name : generator room


Length = 8.92 m
Width = 7.87 m
Total area = W * D
= 8.92 * 7.87 = 70.2 m2

From NFPA – 11 ( table for application area rate )

Application area rate = 6.50 lt / min . m2

Q (foam solution req.) = area * app. Area rate

= 70.2 * 6.50
= 456 lt / min
= 27.4 m3 / hr
= 120 gpm
Mixing ratio = 3 %
Q (Water req.) = Q (foam solution req.) * 97 %
= 120 gpm * 97 %
= 116 gpm

Q (foam req.) = Q (foam solution req.) * 3 %


= 120 gpm * 3 %
= 3.5 gpm

Time duration = 40 min

Bladder Tank Capacity = 3.5 gpm * 40 min


= 140 gallons

Deluge valve size 80 mm shield model


Capacity range = (130 gpm – 480 gpm)

Pressure Proportioner 80 mm Ansul model


Capacity range = (72 gpm – 790 gpm)
