Details

This three-day, in-person workshop provides a deep dive into advanced hydraulic principles for standpipe systems, fire pump assemblies, and water storage tanks. Students will receive classroom instruction, work through examples, and complete practice exercises.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Determine minimum design requirements for standpipe systems.
  2. Identify vertical standpipe system zone requirements.
  3. Identify and apply requirements for pressure-regulating devices.
  4. Apply principles of fire pumps necessary for hydraulic design, including:
    • Suction, discharge, and net pressure
    • Laws of affinity
    • Fire pump selection
    • Test header and pressure relief calculations
  5. Apply hydraulic principles of water storage tank design including:
    • Determine minimum capacity based on system demand.
    • Determine the minimum usable capacity of the tank.
    • Determine appropriate refill rates for break tanks.
    • Determine the maximum length of pipe supplying a fire pump.

Credits & Approvals

  • 2.25 CEUs; 22.5 NICET CPDs
  • 22.5 CEUs Florida Approved Credits

Schedule

  • Day 1 & 2 – Introduction, Fire Pumps (Sizing and Selection of Fire Pumps, Affinity Laws, Test Header Calculation, Main Relief Valve Calculation, Diesel Engine Corrections, Diesel Fuel Tank Sizing)
  • Day 2 – Standpipe Systems (Minimum Flow and Pressure, Pressure Limitations, Vertical Standpipe System Zones)
  • Day 3 – Water Storage Tanks (Tank Sizing, Pressure Tanks, Break Tank Refill Rates)

Prerequisites

This course is ideally suited for experienced layout technicians seeking to attain a deeper understanding of hydraulic calculation principles for advanced systems, and apply that knowledge towards successful completion of NICET III and IV Water-Based Systems Layout certification (or equivalent) and job-specific scenarios.
