Big picture question here - I am working on an airport project. We have a Passenger Terminal Building and Aircraft Stands adjacent to the building.
I need to provide sprinkler protection with fire hose cabinets in the Passenger Terminal Building (1,000 gpm at 8 bar / 100 psi), AND fire hydrants to resupply the aircraft rescue and firefighting trucks (1,500 gpm at 6 bar / 87 psi).
Do both of these demands need to be considered together to size the fire pump (both flows combined)?
We are considering one duty pump and one standby pump. Thanks in advance.
