We design fire protection systems for large industrial plants with a large area network running in the kilometers.
In such case there could be chances of surge due do sudden closure of a deluge valve, check valve, or fire pump. We do not have time/expertise to carry on surge analysis on software.
I have heard about using tanks for surge.
How would we go about sizing an anti-surge tank?
Is there any basic guidelines based on fire water flow rate/pump discharge pressure to get first cut sizing of a surge protection tank?
