PIPENET Transient module is being used for performing surge analysis of the firewater system on the fire protection system on an FPSO which will be deployed in the Caribbean Sea.
The purpose of this document is to show some of the capabilities of PIPENET Transient module for performing surge analysis of the firewater system on this FPSO.
Fire protection systems in applications such as FPSOs and offshore platforms are often susceptible to high pressure surges which can damage pipework. The aim of this Application Bulletin is to calculate the potential pressure surges which can arise due to deluge system and fire pump start up. If the pressure surge is high, then the Application Bulletin will show a method of reducing the pressure surge to acceptable values.
