Course Instructor: Karl Wiegand
This course is an introduction to the basics regarding fire sprinklers, valves and hydraulic calculations. Students will become familiar with the parts of a sprinkler assembly and the significance of sprinkler orientation. Next they will learn the basics of sprinkler system valves and the types of systems they service. Finally, hydraulic calculations are discussed as they relate to water supply, water flow and friction loss.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- Have an understanding of sprinkler components, types of systems, and orientation
- Be better equipped to provide fire suppression systems to their design
- Determine fire suppression system valves and the types of systems they service
- Be able to calculate hydraulics within these systems for ensured water and timing requirements
