Can the flow rate or pressure of an element be adjusted?

During the analysis process, CYPEFIRE Hydraulic Systems checks that the minimum flow rates and pressures are met, but the maximum flow rate or pressure of an element, such as an FHR or a sprinkler, cannot be defined.

This analysis is carried out with EPANET, the analysis engine implemented in the program which analyses the pressure at that point according to the entered conditions of size, pressure losses, booster set, etc. The flow rate is a result obtained from the analysed pressure.

Elements in jobs may comply with the standard specifications, but users may consider the elements to be oversized. In this case, they will need to adjust the pump data (e.g. by using a smaller pump so that it does not go out of range) and the installation losses (by adjusting the diameters) until the desired flow rates or similar are achieved.
