Advanced Fire Pumps
September 14, 2021
9:00 am - 11:30 am EST

 

This program covers a number of advanced topics in the design and selection of fire pumps including the evaluation of water supplies to calculate suction pressure, the selection of fire pumps under a variety of water supply situations, and the evaluation of discharge pressure to make sure that system pressure does not get too high, especially in high-rise buildings.  

Due to the advanced nature of the program, it is recommended that only those already knowledgeable in basic hydraulic calculations (including use of the Hazen-Williams formula and adjustments for elevation) attend.  Anyone needing a refresher on these topics is encouraged to read Chapters 30 and 31 in the NFSA textbook Layout, Detail and Calculation of Fire Sprinkler Systems, 2nd edition.  This program will be an excellent review session for those people seeking NICET Level III and Level IV certification.

 

This seminar is being held LIVE online.  Attendance is REQUIRED.  Any participant not in the online class within 30 minutes of the start time will be unenrolled.  No continuing education credits or refunds will be given for unenrollments.  
 

This training class is sponsored by the New Jersey NFSA Chapter and the PenJerDel NFSA Chapter.  The training class is free to members.
