1.1* Scope The provisions of this standard apply to the design, installation, operation, testing, and maintenance of preengineered wet chemical fire extinguishing systems that discharge wet chemical from fixed nozzles and piping by means of expellant gas. It contains only the essential requirements and recommendations needed to make the standard workable in the hands of those skilled in this field. A.1.1 The wet chemical systems described in this standard are designed to discharge wet chemical from fixed nozzles and piping by means of expellant gas. The intent of the standard is to present the design considerations applicable to these systems. The wet chemicals produced by various manufacturers usually are not identical in all characteristics, and each manufacturer designs equipment for use with a specific wet chemical. Therefore, system design principles applicable to the products of one manufacturer are not applicable to the products of another manufacturer. As a result, it is not practical to include system design details as part of this standard. However, such system design details are an integral part of the listing of the systems and are included in the manufacturers’ design, installation, and maintenance manuals.
