Eliminating the Use of Density/Area Curves

Eliminating the Use of Density/Area Curves
Density/Area method of hydraulically calculating a sprinkler system has served us well for many years, but it is time for it to go. Join us for this webinar to learn the history of the density curve development and why.

Depending on the Density/Area method is similar to believing cassette tapes were the best music would ever sound. Design Pressure is a better method of evaluating performance - but we still have more to learn. New research has identified that the operating pressure and sprinkler type is more important than the theoretical density delivered.
