Use best practices to install foam-water fire protection systems with the 2011 Spanish edition of NFPA 16!
NFPA 16: Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems outlines requirements for the design, installation, and maintenance of systems for reliable fire protection. Consult the 2011 Standard for the latest on components; water supplies; design and installation; acceptance tests; and inspection, testing, and maintenance. Systems are to be designed with the required density for either foam or water application as the controlling factor, depending on the design purpose.
Changes in this edition address:
Use of recycled foam solution for pre-priming the systems
Determining friction loss in hydraulic calculations
Identifying specific tolerance ranges for foam concentration
The 2011 Spanish edition of NFPA 16 also clarifies appropriate system design areas, and adds hose stream demand and duration to the calculations. (Softbound, 32 pp., 2011)
