BASIC CALCULATION FOR PUMP & TANK SELECTION

The following are the design considered based on NFPA 13 / 14 & 24

1) FIRE HOSE REEL SYSETM

FHR Flow rate = 50 gpm
Max No of FHR in operation at any time = 2 Nos
Duration of operation = 90 mins Ordinary Hazard- II (e.g Public )

Fire hose reel TANK STORAGE CAPACITY (for Ordinary Hazard Area)

= 50 gpm * 2 No * 90 Mins 9000 gpm

Total storage volume required = 9000 gallons (Minimum)
1 galloons = 3.785 litres

Total storage volume required = 9000 gallons * 3.785 34065 litres

TOTAL STORAGE TANK VOLUME 34 m3

Pump flow rate required = 2 x 50 gpm = 100 gpm

Residual Pressure required at FHR = 4.0 Bar

Pressure loss in pipe/fittings etc = 0.5 bar (assumed, larger length of pipe needs more pressure)
Safety = 0.5 bar

Total head pressure required = 5.0 bar Minimum.

2) FIRE HYDRANT SYSETM

Hydrant Flow rate = 250 gpm
Max No of FH in operation at any time = 2 No
Duration of operation = 90 mins Ordinary hazard II (e.g Public)

Fire hydrant TANK STORAGE CAPACITY (for Ordinary Hazard Area)

= 250 gpm * 2 No * 90 Mins 45000 gpm

Total storage volume required = 45000 gallons (Minimum)
1 galloons = 3.785 litres

Total storage volume required = 45000 gallons * 3.785 170325 litres

TOTAL STORAGE TANK VOLUME 170 m3

Pump flow rate required = 2 x 250 gpm = 500 gpm
