SECTION 1 SYSTEM OVERVIEW

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Product Name: FEC AFFF MIXING PACKAGE Model No.: HP0296


General Description: The FEC AFFF SKID, model HP0296, is a pre-engineered foam mixing system designed to, upon activation of the system, inject up to 36 gallons of 1% AFFF foam concentrate into the water supply at the correct percentage to provide up to 3600 gallons of AFFF foam for use in a Heliport fire suppression system. Activation of the system can be through mechanical or electrical activation at the unit or through a remote electrical activation from an approved source, i.e. fire alarm pull station. Remote monitoring of the system is available through the releasing panel. The FEC AFFF SKID is designed to meet the requirements of NFPA 11, Standard for Low-Expansion Foam, and additionally when used with a properly designed and installed foam fire extinguishing system the FEC AFFF SKID meets the size and supply requirements for both Category H1 and Category H2 heliports under NFPA 418, Standard for Heliports. The system consists of components that meet all UL and NFPA requirements for use as a foam mixing system. Operational Description: The Foam Mixing System employs water pressure and a bladder equipped tank in conjunction with a ratio controller to make the foam solution. The proportioning is accomplished by using a water orifice and a foam concentrate orifice both discharging into a common reduced pressure area (Ratio Controller). The water supply simultaneously feeds the ratio controller (venturi-type proportioner) and pressurizes the foam concentrate. A portion of the water supply is diverted upstream of the proportioner and is used to pressurize the foam concentrate through an elastomeric bladder in the tank separating the foam concentrate from the water. The water flowing through the controller jet creates a differential pressure common to both the downstream water and foam concentrate. This pressure difference between the tank and controller concentrate inlet forces foam concentrate from the tank through the foam concentrate orifice and into the controller. Here it mixes with water to produce a constant predetermined percent solution at various flow rates. The units have a low pressure drop and connect directly to the solution discharge valve. During foam operation, the water outside the bladder gradually displaces the foam concentrate inside the bladder causing the bladder to collapse until the supply is exhausted, at which time, the system must be shut down, the tank drained and the bladder refilled with foam concentrate. Replenishment of the foam concentrate during system operation is not possible. Technical: Size Inlet Outlet Water Supply Power Supply Flow Approximately 3 Ft. Wide x 6 Ft. Long x 5 Ft.

SECTION 2 WHAT OWNERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEMS

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

INTRODUCTION Fire protection systems are unique and have many different issues surrounding their design, installation and service. The following is a discussion of those issues. Warning: While installing a fire alarm system may make lower insurance rates possible, its not a substitute for fire insurance! Question One: How does NFPA 409 - 1995 specify the fire protection requirement in aircraft hangars? Basically, the fire protection requirement is based on the fire hazard size, deck size and construction type. There are also other variables involved, but for easy guidelines the following matrix in Figure 1 is provided. FIRE PROTECTION MATRIX FOR AIRCRAFT HANGARS (Fueled Aircraft) NFPA Size Door Ht. Type of Primary 2 Group* Sq. Ft. (m ) Ft. (m) Protection** I 40,000 or more (3716) 28 or more (8.5) Foam-Water Deluge Activated by Thermal Detection II Less than 40,000 (3716) Less than 28 (8.5) Foam-Water Deluge Activated by Thermal Detection Or Sprinkler System at the Roof with Low Level Low Expansion Foam System Activated by Thermal Detection Or Closed-Head Foam-Water Sprinkler Or Sprinkler System at the Roof with High Expansion Foam System Activated by Thermal Detection III Less than 30,000 (2787) Less than 28 (8.5) None Required Except Where Hazardous Operations are Preformed
*NOTE: Correct Group Classification must also take into account: Type of Construction, Number of Stories and Layout of Fire Areas. **Supplemental underwing protection is required for aircraft with wing areas in excess of 3000 ft2 (279 m 2) in Group I hangars. Supplemental protection is optional for other groups and is frequently used to protect military aircraft.

Question Two: How do you ensure that your helicopter decks foam/water sprinkler system is reliable?

FIGURE 1

The reliability of the fire protection system is highly dependant on the quality of design, installation, and service (testing/inspection/maintenance). A foam/water deluge sprinkler system is generally the heart of most fire protection systems. It includes foam pumps, or bladder tanks, detection systems, deluge valves and other accessory equipment. These components work together as a total package to protect the deck against the threat of fire. Since the system is integrated, the design should be performed by a fire protection engineer who has experience in both suppression and detection systems. The installation includes many contractors: general, electrical, mechanical, sprinkler, etc. These contractors must work as a partnership to install an integrated fire protection system that does not lead to the expense of false discharges or lack of operation in a fire emergency. Lastly, the most overlooked part of ensuring a reliable system is periodic testing, inspection and maintenance. It is important to test the system at regular intervals but also to inspect on a weekly basis. These inspections and tests assure that the components are in full operational condition and will perform in a fire condition as designed. NFPA 409 1995, Standard on Aircraft Hangars, requires inspection and testing at regular intervals. (See Figure 2 for actions and intervals for periodic inspection, testing and maintenance.)

Question Three: Why is foam used and what does it add to the fire protection of a helicopter deck? Fire fighting foam was originally developed in the 1930s to fight flammable liquid fires. Water deluge systems alone will not suppress a large pool fire on the helicopter deck. This Is due to the very high heat release rate of a large pool fire of flammable liquid on a helicopter deck. The water alone cannot cool the fuel to create fire suppression. Using foam, which is the aspiration of a water and foam concentrate, will suppress the fire by blanketing the fuel and smothering the flames as well as providing vapor suppression. Today there are many different types of foam concentrates including Protein, Fluoroprotein, Film-Forming Fluoroprotein, Aqueous FilmForming Foam, Alcohol-Resistant Concentrate AFFF and Synthetic Detergent (High/Medium Expansion). The foam concentrate is combined with water by mechanical proportioning devices to a 1% to 6% solution to form the foam/water solution. Although there are several different types of foam concentrates, the most commonly used is 3% AFFF or Aqueous Film-Forming Foam. Many aircraft hangar owners have converted their water deluge systems to foam/water deluge sprinkler systems. NFPA 409 - 1995 makes this conversion a little easier with a few concessions for the higher densities of these water deluge systems. The standard allows a reduction of the foam discharge duration for the higher density up to 7 minutes and waves the uniform discharge requirement of 15% maximum variation between outputs of the sprinkler head flow rates.

Question Four: What are the environmental concerns with foam?

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Recently, firefighting foams have been analyzed to determine their environmental impact when released. The National Fire Protection Associations Technical Committee on Foam formed a task group to study this issue. This task group has determined that firefighting foam should not be restricted, but the task group encourages the use of foam in an environmentally responsible manner. Foam/water deluge sprinkler systems discharge foam during testing, during an accidental discharge or during a fire. The local jurisdiction may require that the discharge of foam be contained in a fixed containment system for new installations. Determining if a containment system is required is based on the location of the facility, the risk to the environment, the possible impairment of facility operations, the design of the fixed foam system, the ability of the responding fire department to execute temporary containment measures and any local applicable rules or regulations. These conditions could require containment for volumes of 100,000 gallons (378,540 L) or more. Ethylene gycol is a freeze point suppressor and is used in freeze protected foam concentrates. Releases of ethylene gycol in excess of 5,000 pounds are reportable under U.S. EPA Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation & Liability Act (CERCLA) Sections 102 (h) and 103 (a). Most foam concentrates are not freeze protected, but check with your foam manufacturer for more information. Glycol ethers are also used in foam concentrates. As of June 12, 1995; the EPA has issued a final rule on several broad categories of chemicals including glycol ethers. At this time, the EPA has no reportable quantities for any of the glycol ethers. Additional information is available through Ansul Technical Bulletin No. 60. Question Five: Are foams compatible and interchangeable? When foams are tested and listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), they are tested with a specific manufacturers equipment. These listings require that the only foam that can be used in a system is the foam concentrate tested with the equipment. The foam is tested to determine if it will suppress a minimum fire size with specific test protocols and if it will meet a film forming test. These tests are performed on most commercial foam agents. There is additional testing required to perform to the military foam standard of MIL-F-24385 and all foams performing to this standard are tested for compatibility. Typically the military specification foam agent is more expensive than the commercial foam agent. Question Six: Are there any limitations to the Fire Alarm System? An automatic fire alarm system - typically made up of smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible warning devices, and a fire alarm control with remote notification capability can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection against property damage or loss of life resulting from a fire. Any fire alarm system may fail for a variety of reasons: Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot reach the detectors such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Furthermore, all types of smoke detectors - both ionization and photoelectric types, have sensing limitations. No type of smoke detector can sense every kind of fire caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking hi bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, Improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson. IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the same room as the control panel and in rooms used by the system (or the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.

Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people if these devices are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building. A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical power. It AC power fails, the system will operate from standby batteries only for a specified time. Rate-of-Rise heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time. For this reason, a qualified fire protection specialist should test the rate-of-rise feature of each detector at least once per year. Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel. Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premise to a central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily disabled. The most common cause of fire alarm malfunctions, however, is inadequate maintenance. All devices and system wiring should be tested and maintained by professional fire alarm installers following written procedures supplied with each device. System inspection and testing should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/or local fire codes. Adequate written records of all Inspections should be kept SUMMARY Fire protection systems are unique and present a challenge to owners. It is important to understand how these systems work and how to keep them in service. Your fire protection system will provide protection if the system is designed for the hazard present and the system is inspected and tested periodically. These parameters are the same for most industrial fire hazards. What makes a helicopter deck unique is the large fuel source present, the high value of the aircraft, the aircrafts mobility and size, and the aircrafts vulnerability to fire damage. Therefore it is essential that the fire protection system operates in a fire or the consequences may he great.

SECTION 3 INSTALLATION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Note: For additional information on any of the components in the system, refer to appendix A and B. The Fire Suppression System is design to be stored inside a building or away from freezing temperatures. It o meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0-49 C / 32-120F and at a relative humidity of 85% RH (nono condensing) at 30 C / 86F. However, extreme temperature ranges and humidity may adversely affect the useful life of the systems standby batteries and the electronic components. Also since the system relies on the flow of water and a foam mixture, any temperatures near the freezing mark may have an effect on the efficiency of the system. Therefore, it is recommended that this system and its peripherals be installed in an environment with a nominal room temperature of 15-27C / 60-80F. NOTE: Bladder tanks have flanges on both ends of the tank. Vertical tanks always use the top end flange for internal piping and bladder removal. The flange bolts need to be checked for proper tightness (50 ft. lbs.) before placing the tank into service. Follow the appropriate torque rating to insure that the bolts are fixed securely in place. If tightening is required, a criss-cross pattern technique is recommended to insure that the flange is secured completely and correctly. If the internal piping and bladder need to be removed at any time, the Bladder Tank System needs to be tested before being put back into service. When placing the system, make sure that the control panel is accessible and that the drainpipe is positioned in the direction of a drain or other waste removal system (in accordance with National and/or Local codes, also all Authorities Having Jurisdiction). There must also be sufficient space above the tank to permit the filling of the tank with foam concentrate and for the removal of the internal pipes and bladder, which are the full height of the tank, should they need to be replaced. The system is then bolted to the floor using four anchor bolts. After the system is secure, then the 3 NPT outlet pipe needs to be attached to the sprinkler system inlet pipes. If the drain is being attached to another system, then that needs to be done at this time. Otherwise the water supply line is attached to the system at the 3 NPT inlet pipe with the 3 butterfly valve closed. To ensure accurate proportioning over the flow range of the controller, it is recommended that a minimum water inlet pressure of 30 psi must always be available during operation of the system. The ratio controller is designed to have a bladder tank flow rate between 70-750 for AFFF foam. To ensure correct operation of the ratio controller, the pressure of the foam concentrate at the controller must be within 2 psi of the incoming water pressure. All piping that will contain any foam concentrates should be Stainless Steel, Type 304 or 316, brass or bronze. Also, any valves should be Stainless Steel, Type 304 or 316, brass or bronze. Cast brass valves fitted with stainless steel (304 or 316 grades) or brass trim are acceptable. Teflon seats and packing are preferable for foam concentrate service. EPT (EPDM), Buna-N or Viton are also acceptable seal materials. CAUTION: Galvanized steel or other internal coatings must never be used in piping which will contain any foam concentrates. WARNING: Electrical shock hazard. Inspect all electrical connections prior to powering the unit. Wiring connections must be made by a qualified electrician in accordance with all applicable codes, ordinances, and good practices. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious personal injury, death, and/or property damage.

Note: All wiring should be done in accordance with National and/or Local codes for fire alarm systems. The Authority Having Jurisdiction may have additional requirements. WARNING: Prevent electrical shocks. Disconnect the power supply before beginning installation. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious personal injury, death, and/or property damage. Note: Field wiring must be for the specific mode of operation required. See TABLE 3-1. Note: Like all solid state electronic devices, this system may operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning induced transients. Although no system is completely immune from lightning transients and interferences, proper grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes. Note: Prior to connecting to the panel, verify the continuity of all circuitry, also check for, and correct any short circuits. Note: Do not energize the panel until all associated, modules, and interconnecting cables have been connected. A. Visually check the connections of all electrical components in the system. Verify that nothing has become loose or disconnected during shipment or placement of the system. B. All other job site components, not part of the shipped system, should be wired at this time to the system through the knockouts provided. Refer to Figure 3-2. C. Prior to energizing the panel: 1. Verify that dip switches controlling panel operation are in the proper position for the system used. 2. Verify that all modules are securely and properly positioned on their pins. If a module is loose, carefully align all pins and press firmly into position. D. Connect non-energized AC power to the panel. Refer to Figure 3-1 & 3-2. 1. Connect the wire providing in-coming voltage to the terminal marked H 2. Connect the neutral wire to the terminal marked N 3. Connect the ground wire to the terminal marked G E.

SECTION 4 START-UP

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Start Up Check List Electrical To energize the panel and place the system in service: 1. Energize the AC power supply to the panel. The Piezo will sound, and the System Trouble and Power Trouble LEDs will flash. 2. Use the jumper (short) wire to connect the unused negative terminal of one battery with the unused positive terminal of the other battery. The Piezo should silence, and the System Trouble and Power Trouble LEDs should stop flashing. 3. Perform appropriate tests to verify proper operation of the system. 4. After placing the system in service, close and lock the panel to prevent tampering with the unit. Start Up Check List Piping Prior to operation Prior to operation, you should check the integrity of the tanks bladder. Note: Although each tanks bladder is tested before it leaves our factory, it is recommended that the customer perform the bladder integrity procedure on their tank to check for possible damage, holes or tears in the bladder, that may have occurred to the bladder during shipping, handling or installation. CAUTION: Failure to perform this procedure could result in loss of foam concentrate and delay in placing the bladder tank proportioning system into service. 1. The following equipment will be required to properly perform the integrity test of the bladder: a. A 55 gallon drum with an open top completely filled with clean fresh water. b. A length of 3/4 rubber garden hose, which allows the air used to compress the bladder and discharged through the Tank Water Vent Valve 4, to be directed to the 55 gallon drum. A weighted end piece to hold and maintain the hose at the bottom of the drum is required. c. An appropriate length of 1 clear air/foam concentrate vent hose, with a male NPT swivel, for connection to Foam Concentrate Vent Valve 5, a pail or water tight container, large enough to hold at least 6 of water and a weighted end piece to hold and maintain the hose at the bottom of the pail. This arrangement allows any air inside the bladder to be discharged to the water pail/container. d. A clean air or nitrogen supply (25 psi to 35 psi capacity) along with approximately 25 ft. of heavy duty compressor hose and fittings required for connection to the 1/4" NPT valve on the Bladder Tank Fill Manifold. The air supply/hose arrangement attaches to the Water Drain/Fill Valve 6 and provides air, used to compress the bladder, to the inside of the tank shell. 2. Testing Procedures a. Set up the tank and testing equipment as described above and as shown in the figure 2. b. Open valves 4, 5 & 6. Make sure that all other valves on the bladder tank are closed. CAUTION: Valves 4, 5 & 6 must be opened to avoid damage to the bladder and assure a proper bladder integrity test. c. Add air to the tank through Valve 6. A steady stream of air will start to escape through Valve 5 as the bladder is collapsed. This air will show itself as bubbles in the pail of water. NOTE: The amount of time it takes before air escape through Valves 4 & 5 is in relation to the air supply pressure and the size of the tank. d. As the tank shell fills with air and the bladder is fully collapsed, the air bubbles through Valve 5 will slow down and bubbles will start to escape through Valve 4. This decrease of air bubbles from Valve 5 and an increase from Valve 4 will continue for a period of time and should develop into a steady stream of air bubbles escaping from Valve 4. Air bubbles from Valve 5 should stop completely at this point. e. If no air bubbles are noted from Valve 5 into the pail of water, then positive bladder integrity is indicated and you may proceed with the bladder tank filling procedures.

SECTION 5 BLADDER TANK FILLING INSTRUCTIONS

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

WARNING: Incorrect filling procedures can damage the internal bladder. Chemguard products have a limited warranty for one year from date of purchase. NOTE: Chemguard recommends the bladder tank be kept completely full at all times to insure maximum fire fighting capability of the system. The bladder tank should be refilled or topped off any time the system has been activated and foam concentrate has been discharged from the tank. INTRODUCTION The following describes the recommended method for filling bladder tanks. To assure that the bladder is positioned so as to be fully supported by the tank shell, it is imperative that this procedure be followed. The following equipment is required for proper bladder tank fill in cases of initial fill/empty tank or large volume refill: 1. An open top 55 gallon drum (208 L), or appropriate sized container (approx. 3 ft. high x 2 ft. dia.), to be completely filled with clean fresh water. 2. An appropriate length (20 ft.) of 1 clear air/foam concentrate vent hose with a male NPT swivel for connection to Foam Concentrate Vent Valve 5, and a weighted end piece to hold and maintain the clear hose at the bottom of the 55 gal. drum. This length of clear hose connects Valve 5 to the 55 gallon drum allowing bladder air discharge thru the water in the drum, and also allows foam concentrate discharge indicating that the bladder is completely filled. 3.* A Bladder Tank Fill Manifold which includes the required valves, fittings and pressure gauge. See Fill Manifold Illustration for parts and description. NOTE: Federal Equipment Company recommends a pressure gauge in the manifold type setup as an additional safeguard when filling. If unreasonably high pressure is shown on the gauge (10 psi or higher), shutdown the fill operation and Check the setup to see that it conforms to Federal Equipment Company instructions, and to insure that all valves are in the correct position at that point in the procedure. 4.* A clean air or nitrogen supply (25 psi to 35 psi capacity) along with approximately 25 ft. of heavy duty compressor hose and fittings required for connection to the 1/4" NPT valve on the Bladder Tank Fill Manifold. 5.* A foam concentrate pump, positive displacement, rated 20 gpm @ 20 psi. Also, the hose and adapters needed to connect the pump with the fill manifold and hose, adapters and dip tube needed to transfer the foam Concentrate from its container to the pump. 6.* 2 lengths of rubber garden hose (3/4 x 25 ft) which: a. Are used to add water, when required, to the shell side of the bladder thru the Water Drain/Fill Valve No. 6. b. Allows water discharged from the Tank Water Vent Valve 4 to be directed to a drain. NOTE: * indicates a complete Bladder Tank Electric Fill Pump Kit available from Chemguard. Kit includes all necessary hose, tubing, fittings, fill manifold, electric fill pump and air compressor (optional item). Complete kit w/compressor (Items 3, 4, 5 & 6) Complete kit w/o compressor (Items 3, 5 & 6) Electric Fill Pump Kit only (Item 5) CAUTION: Before starting the Bladder Tank Fill Procedure, carefully review the valve description chart and diagrams. Read all fill Instructions before attempting Bladder Tank fill. WARNING: Failure to follow these filling Instructions may result in a ruptured Internal bladder.

A. Initial Fill

Empty Bladder Tank Using Motor Driven Foam Concentrate Pump NOTE: Be sure all valves are in their normal stand-by position. Refer to System Operating Drawing Fig. 3 in section 4 for Normal Stand-By Valve Position Chart and valve location. See Figures 5-1, 5-2, and 5-3 for set-up illustrations. 1. See Figure 5-1. Close Valve 2. Be sure Valve 1, or 1A if appropriate, and Valve 6 are closed. Open Valves 4 and 5. 2. Attach the fill manifold to Valve 6. Attach one end of overflow hose to Valve 4 and place the other end of the hose into a drain or container. Connect a water source to the concentrate/water shutoff valve. Be sure the concentrate/water shutoff valve is closed before pressurizing the water line. Open Valve 6 and then slowly open the fill manifold concentrate/water shutoff valve, and fill the tank shell until all air is vented from the bladder and a steady flow of water comes thru Valve 4. 3. Connect the air/foam Concentrate vent hose to the Bladder Foam Concentrate Vent Valve 5. Fill the 55 gallon drum completely with water and place the vent hose discharge end at the bottom of the drum. The vent hose must be positioned and maintained at the bottom of the drum using weighted device. 4. See Figure 5-2. Close Valve 6 (Valve 4 remains open). Attach the fill manifold to Foam Concentrate Drain/Fill Valve 7. Make sure the Concentrate/water Shutoff Valve is closed. Connect the air supply to the fill manifold. Open the Air Supply Shutoff Valve. Start the air source, at a pressure between 5-10 psi, and slowly open Valve 7. The bladder will begin to fill with air. Completely fill bladder with air. 5. The bladder is filled with air when air bubbles are expelled from the vent hose at the bottom of the drum, and water no longer flows from Valve 4. Let the vent hose expel air for approximately 30 seconds to insure complete inflation. Open Valve 6 to drain any remaining water from the shell. 6. Close Valves 6 and 7 and the manifold Air Supply Shutoff Valve. Shutdown and disconnect air supply from the manifold. 7. See Figure 5-3. Connect the foam Concentrate pump to the fill manifold Concentrate/Water Shutoff Valve. Connect the pump to the foam Concentrate source. 8. Open the Concentrate/Water Shutoff Valve. Start the foam concentrate pump and slowly open Valve 7. Be sure to start the pump than open Valve 7. CAUTION: Make certain that vent hose remains securely positioned at bottom of 55 gallon drum. NOTE: Air bubbles will be expelled thru the vent hose and drum as foam concentrate displaces the air and fills the bladder. 9. Continue filling until foam Concentrate is seen in the clear vent hose or is detected coming from the hose discharge end. CAUTION: Foam concentrate bubbles may be detected in the vent hose or at the discharge end of the hose when nearing bladder capacity. These bubbles do not indicate a full bladder. Continue filling until liquid foam concentrate is detected. CAUTION: Normally the actual capacity of a bladder tank will exceed the nominal capacity listed on the tank. Therefore, it is recommended to continue filling until foam concentrate is detected coming from Valve 5 and not until nominal capacity is reached. 10. Close Valve 7. Remove the fill manifold. NOTE: Flush the fill manifold and foam concentrate pump (following manufacturers instructions) after filling bladder tank. 11. Check foam concentrate level using sight tube. Refer to 5E.

Continue pumping concentrate until foam concentrate is detected coming from Valve 5. Close the concentrate/water shutoff valve and then close Valves 4, 5, 6, and 7. 7. Check foam concentrate level using sight tube. Refer to 5E.

E. Checking Foam Concentrate Level


NOTE: Be sure all valves are in their normal stand-by position. Refer to System Operating Drawing Fig. 3 in section 4 for Normal Stand-By Valve Position Chart and valve location. CAUTION: The foam concentrate level cannot be checked while the tank is pressurized. To determine the concentrate level, follow the procedures below: 1. Depressurize tank by closing Valve 2. Make sure Valves 1 & 7 are closed. Then slowly open the following valves: Valve 4 (allow pressure to vent before opening remaining valves), 5, 6 and 8. CAUTION: The tank will still contain some residual pressure, which will be released. 2. When water stops flowing from Water Drain/fill Valve 6,observe the concentrate level in the sight glass. NOTE: It may be necessary to drain the sight glass by turning Valve 8 to the third position. Then turn Valve 8 back to the second position and allow concentrate level to refill the sight glass before determining the level. Close Valve 8 before draining. 3. Close Valve 8. Drain the sight glass by turning Valve 8 to the third position. Return all valves to their normal stand-by position as shown on the System Operating Drawing Fig. 3 in section 4. 4. If the bladder tank has been completely filled with foam concentrate, no water has to be replaced in the tank shell to return the tank to full stand-by condition. However, if the system has been operated and there is foam concentrate in the bladder and water occupied the remaining area in the tank shell before checking the foam level, water must be replaced in the tank shell to return the tank to full stand-by condition: a. b. c. d. e. Attach a water supply to Valve 6. Open Valves 5 & 6. Slowly add water thru Valve 6. When foam concentrate is discharged from Valve 5, shut off the water supply and close Valve 5. Open Valve 4 and slowly add water thru Valve 6 until water flows from Valve 4. Close Valves 4 & 6. Return all valves to normal stand-by position as shown on the System Operating Drawing Fig.4-2.

DELUGE VALVE MODEL E-1 AND ASSOCIATED TRIM KIT


1. PRODUCT NAME Viking Model E-1 Deluge Valve 3 (80 mm) Available since 1985 2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Deluge systems are commonly used where it is desirable to simultaneously spray water from all open sprinklers and/or nozzles on the system when it operates. Electrically controlled deluge systems require an electric solenoid valve controlled by an approved system control panel with compatible detection system. The Viking Model E-1 Deluge Valve is a quick-opening, differential diaphragm, flood valve with one moving part. The deluge valve is used to control water flow in deluge and preaction sprinkler systems. The valve is held closed by system water pressure trapped in the priming chamber, keeping the outlet chamber and system piping dry. In fire conditions, when the detection system operates, the system control panel energizes solenoid valve open, pressure is released from the priming chamber causing the deluge valve clapper to open and allow water to enter the system piping. Water will flow from any open sprinklers and/or spray nozzles on the system. 3. TECHNICAL DATA Approvals: 90 Degree Pattern (inlet to outlet) Connections: Flanged inlet with grooved outlet Factory tested to 500 psi (3 447 kPa) Valve differential over 2:1 (priming chamber to inlet chamber) Priming chamber supply restriction (required): 0.0625 (1,6 mm) Color of Valve: Painted red for identification purposes Friction loss: 29 ft.

5. OPERATION (Refer to Figure 1 & 2) The Viking Model E-1 Deluge Valve has an inlet chamber, an outlet chamber, and a priming chamber. The inlet chamber and outlet chamber are separated from the priming chamber by the clapper (6) and diaphragm (2). In the set condition: System water supply pressure is supplied to the priming chamber of the deluge valve through the 1/4 (8mm) priming line, which includes a normally open priming valve, strainer, restricted orifice, a Check Valve (B.4), and the normally open PSOV (B.10) on systems equipped with the Easy Trim package. System water supply pressure trapped in the priming chamber, by the Check Valve (B.4) and normally closed Solenoid Valve (E.1), holds the clapper (6) on seat (9) due to area differential design. The pressure in the Priming Chamber holds the clapper (6), which separates the inlet chamber from the outlet chamber, closed and keeps the outlet chamber and system piping dry. In fire conditions: When the detection system (E.4) operates, the System Control Panel (E.3) activates an alarm and energizes the normally closed Solenoid Valve (E.1) open. Pressure is released from the priming chamber faster than it is supplied through the restricted orifice (B.3). Water supply pressure in the inlet chamber, forces the clapper (6) off from seat (9), allowing water to flow through the outlet and into the system and alarm devices, causing the water motor alarm and water flow alarms connected to the alarm pressure switch to activate. Water will flow from any open sprinklers and/or spray nozzles on the system. Deluge Valve equipped with Easy Trim: When the deluge valve operates, the sensing end of the PSOV is pressurized, causing the PSOV to close. When the PSOV closes, it shuts off the flow of priming water pressure to the priming chamber, preventing the deluge valve from resetting even if the open releasing devices close. The deluge valve can only be reset after the system is taken out of service, and the outlet chamber of the deluge valve and associated trim piping is depressurized and drained. Trouble conditions: If the detection system operates due to mechanical damage or malfunction, the Deluge Valve will open. Water will flow from any open sprinklers and/or spray nozzles on the system. Water motor alarm and alarms connected to alarm pressure switch will activate. Manual Operation: Any time the handle inside emergency release is pulled, pressure is released from the priming chamber; the deluge valve will open. Water will flow into the system piping and alarm devices. Water will flow from any open sprinklers and/or spray nozzles on the system. 6. AVAILABILITY AND SERVICE The Viking deluge valve and accessories are available through a network of domestic, Canadian, and international distributors. For proper operation and approval, the valve must be trimmed in accordance with the current Viking Trim Chart for the valve used. Where difficulty in performance is experienced, verify that the valve is trimmed properly. Contact Viking or Viking s authorized representative before any field adjustments are made. See the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory for a local distributor (listed under Sprinklers-Automatic-Fire) or contact The Viking Corporation. 7. GUARANTEES For details of warranty, refer to Vikings current list price schedule or contact Viking directly.

1. PRODUCT NAME

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

VIKING PRIMING SHUT-OFF VALVE (PSOV) Model A-1, Part Number 10723 2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The Viking Prime Shut-off Valve (PSOV) is a spring-loaded to open, rolling diaphragm, piston operated valve. It is used to positively shut off the priming water supply to a deluge valve upon deluge valve operation. The prime shut-off valve is a required component on deluge systems utilizing Easy Trim, where pressure regulation and thermostatic release are not required. The Model A-1 Prime Shut-off Valve is listed and approved for use on Viking deluge valves utilizing Easy Trim for deluge systems or pre-action systems. 3. TECHNICAL DATA Listings and Approvals: UL Listed Guide No. VLTR UL Control No. 957A C-UL Listed FM Approved Water Pressure Ratings: Rated to 250 PSI (1724 kPa) water working pressure Hydrostatically tested to 500 PSI (3447 kPa) K-Factor: 4.6 U.S. (6,62 metric*) *Metric K-Factor shown is for use when pressures measured in kPa. When pressure is measured in BAR, multiply the metric K-Factor shown by 10.0. Shipping Weight: 2 lbs. Materials: Cast Brass: UNS-C84400 Brass Bar Stock: UNS-C36000 Stainless Steel: UNS-S30206 Piston: Polycarbonate Diaphragm: Polyester Fabric and EPDM Elastomer 4. FEATURES Model A-1 Corrosion resistant construction with minimal moving parts. Low differential design--allows minimum back pressure development at deluge valve to operate prime shut-off valve and isolate prime water supply to priming chamber of deluge valve. 5. AVAILABILITY AND SERVICE The Viking Prime Shut-off Valve is available through a network of domestic, Canadian, and international distributors. See the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory for a local distributor (listed under SprinklersAutomatic-Fire) or contact The Viking Corporation. 6. GUARANTEES For details of warranty, refer to Vikings current list price schedule or contact Viking directly. Regarding corrosion: it is the end-users responsibility to verify that materials are compatible with the environment. 7. OPERATION The Viking Prime Shut-off Valve has an inlet, outlet, and sensing end. When pressure is applied to, the sensing end, the rolling diaphragm and piston assembly moves and is seated against the valve seat. This seals the inlet from the outlet, eliminating the supply of priming water to the priming chamber of the deluge utilizing Easy Trim.

FEC HELIPORTS

Due to the differential design, back pressure, caused in the discharge outlet of the deluge valve ported through the auxiliary outlet will cause the prime shut-off valve to close. When pressure is removed from the sensing end of the prime shut-off valve, the rolling diaphragm and piston will reset to the flow through position by means of the spring forcing the diaphragm wrapped piston in the open position. 8. MAINTENANCE The prime shut-off valve is manufactured with a weep hole to indicate a failure of upper or lower diaphragm. The body of the prime shut-off valve is constructed of three cast brass pieces. The center section of the valve assembly houses the piston of the assembly; the housing is created by the upper and lower diaphragm. The valve also includes an integral spring that guides the diaphragm wrapped housing to the valve seat. If water appears from the weep hole located in the center section of the valve assembly, replace the diaphragm assembly. If the prime shut-off valve does not positively close upon deluge valve operation (evident by continual prime water discharge at the drain cup), flush prime shut off valve. To do this, remove deluge valve from service and either flush the prime shut-off valve or disassemble the prime shut-off valve and inspect valve for debris. WARNING: Any system maintenance or testing that involves putting a control valve or detection system out of service may eliminate the fire protection of that system. Prior to proceeding, notify all authorities having jurisdiction. Consideration should be given to employment of a fire patrol in the affected area. The Viking prime shut-off valve must be kept free of foreign matter and freezing conditions that could impair its operation. At regular intervals (at least annually) inspect and test the prime shut-off valve. The frequency of the inspections is dependent upon the condition of the water and release system. PRIOR TO PERFORMING ANY WORK ON THE PRIME SHUT-OFF VALVE, REFER TO SYSTEM DESCRIPTION FOR INSTRUCTIONS AND WARNINGS REGARDING THE FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEM AND RELEASE SYSTEM. A. Inspection: 1. Place the fire protection system out of service. 2. Trip the release system. 3. Drain any accumulated condensation for the release line. 4. Purge the release system of any foreign matter. 5.

High Pressure Solenoid Valve


1. PRODUCT NAME

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

High Pressure Solenoid Valve (For Maximum 250 psi (1 724 kPa) Water Working Pressure) 2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The high pressure solenoid valve is a two-way type with one inlet and one outlet. It is a packless, internal pilot operated valve, suitable for use in releasing water pressure from the priming chamber of Viking Model E Series Deluge Valves and Viking Model H Series Flow Control Valves. The solenoid valve has floating diaphragm construction, which requires a minimum pressure drop across the valve to operate properly. This valve is available normally closed and has a voltage rating of 24 volt DC. This solenoid valve is for use with system control units that are listed and/or approved for releasing service for water based fire protection systems. 3. TECHNICAL DATA APPROVALS See Table 1 on page 217 b. MATERIALS Body: Brass with 1/2 (I5 mm) NPT connections Seals and Discs: Buna N Core Tube: 305 Stainless Steel Core and Plug nut: 430F Stainless Steel Springs: 302 Stainless Steel Coil: Class H, Continuous Duty Maximum Operating Pressure: 250 psi (1 724kPa) Minimum Operating Pressure: 5 psi (34,5 kPa) See Table I for enclosure descriptions and recommended ambient temperatures. Manufacturer: Automatic Switch Company (ASCO) Straight Body Styles are ASCO Bulletin 8210 Diaphragm Type Valves (Red-Hat or Red-Hat Il Models) 4. FEATURES AND ACCESSORIES A. Normally closed. B. 24 VDC Standard C. Easy to clean. D. Required Accessories: A 50 mesh strainer must be installed on the inlet side of the valve at the priming line connection. This strainer is included as part of the Model E-1 Deluge Valve Trim and Model H Flow Control Valve Trim. E. NEMA 1 through 9. (See Table 1 on page 217b.) 5. OPERATION The solenoid valve is an internal pilot operated valve with pilot and bleed orifices utilizing line pressure for operation. Normally closed, de-energized valves open when energized. Power is applied to the solenoid coil, causing the solenoid core to lift, opening the pilot orifice to the outlet side of the valve. This relieves pressure on the top side of the diaphragm and allows the line pressure to open the valve. When de-energized, the solenoid core reseals the pilot orifice, allowing the line pressure to build above the diaphragm, closing the valve. Normally closed solenoid valves are commonly used as releases for Viking deluge and flow control valves. Opening the solenoid valve allows the deluge or flow control valve to open. Note: When using a normally closed solenoid valve as a release, a system will not operate automatically on total loss of power. For this reason, it is recommended and normally required that an emergency back-up, supervised power supply be provided to maintain fire protection during interruptions of the main power system and to meet the requirements of appropriate Authorities Having Jurisdiction. 6. AVAILABIUTY AND SERVICE The solenoid valve is available through a network of domestic and international distributors. See the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory for a local distributor (listed under Sprinklers-Automatic-Fire) or contact The Viking Corporation directly.

7. GUARANTEES For details of warranty, refer to Vikings current list price schedule or contact The Viking Corporation directly. 8. MAINTENANCE WARNING: The owner is responsible for maintaining the fire protection system in proper operating condition. Any system maintenance or testing that involves placing a control valve or detection system out of service may eliminate the fire protection of that system. Prior to proceeding, notify all Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Consideration should be given to employment of a fire patrol in the affected area. WARNING: Prior to operating the solenoid valve, be sure to close the system control valve to avoid unintentional operation of the deluge valve. A. Inspections: It is imperative that the system be inspected and tested on a regular basis. The frequency of the inspections may vary due to contaminated water supplies, corrosive water supplies, or corrosive atmospheres. In addition, the alarm devices, detection systems, or other connected trim may require a more frequent schedule. Refer to the system description and applicable codes for minimum requirements. B. The valve must be operated at least monthly. The valve must open and close freely. When open, the water flow must be clear and clean at the proper flow rate. When closed, a total water shut-off must be observed. After the test, the strainer must be cleaned. Prior to cleaning the strainer, the priming line valve must be closed and the priming line depressurized. After the strainer is cleaned, the priming line valve must be reopened. C. The valve must be inspected at least monthly for cracks, corrosion, leakage, etc., and cleaned, repaired, or replaced as necessary. D. At least annually, the valve diaphragms and seats must be inspected and if necessary, repaired or replaced. WARNING: Close system control valve, turn off power supply, and depressurize valve before disassembling valve. It is not necessary to remove the valve from the pipe line to make inspections. E. When lubricating valve components, use a high grade silicone grease (Dow Corning 111 Compound Lubricant or equal). F. When reassembling, tighten parts to torque values indicated in ASCOs maintenance instructions (packed with valve). G. After maintenance is completed, operate the valve a few times to be sure of proper operation. A metallic click signifies the solenoid is operating. H. It is recommended that the valve be replaced at seven-year intervals. Shorter intervals may be required if the valve is subject to corrosive water supplies or atmospheres. J. All service must be performed by qualified personnel. Upon completion of inspections or replacement of the valve, the entire system must be checked for proper operation. See appropriate system description and testing instructions for additional information. 9. INSTALLATION A. Check nameplate for correct unit, including voltage and mode of operation. Follow all installation and maintenance instructions enclosed with the valve. B. Standard solenoids may be mounted in any position. However, for optimum life and performance, solenoids should be mounted vertically and upright with the coil upright. C. A 50 mesh strainer is required on the inlet side of the valve at the priming line connection. This strainer is included as part of the Model E-1 Deluge Valve Trim. Install the strainer as indicated on Vikings trim drawing. Install the solenoid according to markings on the valve body. Apply pipe-joint compound sparingly to male pipe threads only. If applied to valve threads, it may enter the valve and cause operation difficulty or leakage. Avoid putting pipe compound on first two male threads as well. D. The unit must be wired in accordance with local and national electrical codes. For valves equipped with watertight enclosures, the electrical fillings must be approved for use in the hazardous location. E. Upon completing the installation, the entire system must be tested for proper operation. See system description and testing instructions for additional information.

VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL BLADDER TANK SPECIFICATION, INSTALLATION, AND SYSTEM DESIGN INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

The Chemguard Bladder Tank is one component in a balanced pressure foam proportioning fire protection system. It requires no external power other than water pressure to ensure correct operation. The bladder tanks are designed and constructed in accordance with the latest revisions to ASME Code, section VIII for unfired pressure vessels with a working pressure of 175 psi and are tested to 1.3 times this pressure. SPECIFICATIONS The tank shell is constructed of steel, complying with ASME specifications, possessing a tensile strength of not less than 70,000 psi. The circumferential, as well as the longitudinal body seam, are machine welded. The tank interior welds and edges are ground smooth. The tank shell water inlet and tank shell water drain are screened to prevent bladder blow out or the entrapment of debris between the tank shell and the bladder. The vertical tank assembly is supported by four legs with access to the bladder drain/fill valve and the tank shell drain/fill valve. Four feet are provided for anchoring the tank. The horizontal assembly is supported on two saddles welded to the tank and fitted with anchoring holes. FEATURES UL Listed Bladder is manufactured of J-22 vinyl polyester or nylon reinforced Buna-N. The bladder material shall have an ASTM D-412 Tensile Strength of at least 3000 psi and an ASTM D-624 Graves Tear Strength of at least 420 lbs/in. Tanks are supplied with brass trim valves with Teflon seats and permanently mounted to the tank. All valves are labeled showing normal working position and function. Lifting lugs are permanently welded to the tank with eyes of approximately 2 diameter. Both the vertical and horizontal tanks contain a perforated PVC center tube that permits greater agent discharge. All tanks are approximately 10% oversized to allow for any thermal expansion of the foam concentrate. All tanks are supplied with a label which identifies the type of foam concentrate the system is designed for, the percentage ratio and the tank size. Tanks are painted red enamel. OPTIONS 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Coal tar epoxy for coating the interior shell of the tank (for use in salt water environment). Sight Glass. Proportioner pre-piped onto tank assembly. Red epoxy finish. Custom fabrication of specialty materials, dimensions and capacities. Actuated valves for water/concentrate. Stainless steel or brass trim. Insulation and heat tracing packages.

INSTALLATION Upon receipt of the Chemguard Bladder Tank and before installation, check completely around the tank, trim valves and piping, etc. for any damage that may have occurred during shipment. When installing a vertical bladder tank, please consider the possibility that in the future, the bladder or PVC center tube may require removal. Remember that it requires access from above the tank in order to remove the piping and the bladder. If possible, it should be installed in an area that is at least twice as high as the tank or a roof

hatch should be installed above the tank. When installing a horizontal style bladder tank, it also requires vertical clearance as well as a clear area at one end, which should be at least twice as long as the tank. Access through double doors is acceptable. Place the tank in the desired location and anchor to the floor. If unable to leave an area around the tank(s) as above, endeavor to have at least 3 feet clearance above and around the tank from the nearest wall or obstruction. This provides working space around the tank for connecting the system pipe work to the tank. CAUTION Do not weld on the bladder tank shell. Welding temperatures may cause damage to the elastomeric rubber bladder inside the tank. INFORMATION Chemguard supplies only the equipment listed in the Chemguard quotation. All interconnecting piping, valves or fittings not specifically mentioned, are not supplied. Fig. 1 shows a typical piping arrangement utilizing a vertical bladder tank with one proportioning controller as well as all necessary valves and components. WARNING Please refer to the ASME label installed on the bladder tank for the recommended working pressure. As standard, Chemguard bladder tanks are ASME coded for 175 psi working pressure. Also check the label on the tank showing the tank capacity and type of foam concentrate to be used in the tank. The Chemguard bladder tank does not come equipped with any pressure relief device. Chemguard does not supply this device because the water supply pressure, flow capacity and full system design details must be known before a pressure relief device is installed. It is the responsibility of either the owner or the Fire Protection Engineer designing the system to establish whether or not the relief device is required. Fig. 2 shows a two bladder tank (one main, one reserve) system. Fig. 2 illustrates the reserve tank manually valved off from the system. Once the primary tank has been expended it can be manually isolated from the system and the reserve tank brought on line by opening the manual valves to/from the tank and closing the manual valves to/from the main tank. This gives continuous coverage by the foam protection system over the hazard area. The main tank can now be recharged with foam concentrate while it is isolated from the system. It is possible to cover different risk areas using the same bladder tank. Fig. 3 & 3A depict a single vertical tank supplying three different risk areas through different proportioning controllers. In this type of open discharge device installation, it is normal that each area would have its own detection system. DESIGN NOTE When designing the piping arrangement to the bladder tank, it is most important to have the pressure of the foam concentrate within 2 psi of the incoming water pressure when it arrives at the same proportioning controller. The combined total equivalent length of pipe, fillings and valves in both the water supply inlet piping and the foam concentrate discharge piping must not exceed 50 equivalent feet (15.2 meters). This will allow both pipes to be the same size as the foam liquid inlet to the proportioning controller. If the total equivalent length exceeds 50 feet (15.2 meters), please call the engineering department at Chemguard for assistance. When installing the water feed pipe to the bladder tank, ensure this water supply is installed into the system upstream from the proportioning controller. In accordance with NFPA standards, a strainer is required in the foam concentrate line from the bladder tank to the proportioning controller. When the system is used with Chemguard manufactured foam concentrates, it is our opinion that this strainer is not necessary or desirable due to the increased friction loss.

DESIGN NOTE

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

There is approximately 1 psi of friction loss incurred within the bladder tank itself as the foam concentrate is pushed out of the bladder into the concentrate piping. DESIGN NOTE When using Chemguard standard 1%, 3%, or 6% AFFF concentrates, all hydraulic flow calculations are based on water flow rates through the pipe and fittings. Because of their high viscosity, when using the 3%-6% or the 3% type of alcohol resistant AFFFs, hydraulic calculations for the piping from the bladder tank to the proportioning controller are very critical. Please refer to the separate data sheet Friction Loss Data for Alcohol Resistant AFFF. When calculating the hydraulics of the foam fire protections system, please refer to the two graphs on the proportioning controllers data sheet, which refer to Friction Loss Curves and Minimum Inlet Pressure Versus Flow. DESIGN NOTE Proportioning Controllers Information Check the approved flow rate(s) of the controller(s) with the particular type of foam concentrate being used in the system. REMEMBER; Alcohol Resistant AFFF type concentrates have higher low end approved flow rates than the proportioning controllers with the standard AFFFs. Install the proportioning controller(s) in the main distribution supply pipe that feeds the system. NOTE: Refer to the proportioning controller data sheet regarding the length of straight pipe upstream and downstream from the controller. This straight pipe minimizes the turbulence inside the controller, which gives more accurate proportioning. When installing the proportioning controller(s) higher in the system than the top of the bladder tank, REMEMBER to calculate for the friction loss due to head pressure from the bladder tank to the controller concentrate inlet. When using a bladder tank with a proportioning controller(s) in a closed head foam fire protection system, a number of discharge sprinkler heads will have to open before the necessary flow rate is reached through the proportioning controller. This allows the correct proportioning of the foam concentrate into the water stream. At flow rates below the recommended approved rate, very lean or no proportioning of the foam concentrate into the water stream will take place. The size of the proportioning controller is the controlling factor. The larger the controller, the higher the low end flow rate. Subsequently, more heads must open before accurate proportioning is achieved. REMEMBER: If using the alcohol resistant AFFF type agents, the low end flow rate of the proportioning controller(s) is even higher. INSTALLATION INFORMATION Once the tank has been located in the correct position and anchored to the floor, it can be piped into the system. On both the horizontal and the vertical style tanks, the water inlet into the tank is located approximately midway down the side of the tank. Unscrew the plug and connect the water supply piping. DESIGN NOTE Automatic Hydraulic Actuated Valve This valve is used in the foam concentrate line to prevent foam concentrate from entering into the proportioning controller when the system is not in operation. When installed correctly, this valve will open automatically and allow the foam concentrate into the controller. The valve is normally in the closed position and is activated by water pressure. In normal installations when the system is activated, a small 1/4 or 3/8 ID copper tube feeds water to the hydraulic valve from the alarm side of either a deluge or an alarm valve.

For further information on this valve, please refer to the data sheet Hydraulic Actuated Concentrate Control Valve. If an electric driven concentrate control valve is required, please contact the engineering department at Chemguard for further information. If supplying only one proportioning controller from the bladder tank the foam system is of a Deluge type system, and the proportioning controller is installed higher in the system than the top of the bladder tank. An automatic normally closed concentrate control valve is not necessary on the foam concentrate line. If the proportioning controller is installed below the top of the tank, siphoning of the foam concentrate out of the tank may take place. In this instance, an automatic concentrate control valve should be installed. If the foam system is of the Closed Head type, it is recommended that a normally closed concentrate control valve be installed in the foam concentrate line going to the proportioning controller. DESIGN NOTE It is suggested that a union or a grooved coupling be installed between the foam concentrate swing check valve and the inlet to the proportioning controller. This will facilitate servicing of the controller if necessary. Fig. 3 shows one bladder tank supplying three different systems. The water supply to the tank is supplied from each system. The check valve on each water supply system is necessary as this will prevent water from being back fed into a system that has not operated. Fig. 4 shows a two flange horizontal bladder tank piping arrangement supplying foam concentrate to one proportioning controller. A hydraulic actuated valve is necessary because the proportioning controller is located below the top of the tank. Fig. 5 depicts a four flange horizontal bladder tank piping arrangement supplying foam concentrate to one proportioning controller. A hydraulic actuated valve is not required in this instance as the proportioning controller is located above the top of tank. DESIGN NOTE The water supply feeding the bladder tank can be taken from a constant pressurized water supply source. It will not damage the bladder tank if left under constant pressure. The foam concentrate will be forced out of the tank but not into the proportioning controller because of the normally closed automatic valve. Even on a closed head system, after the piping grid work has been primed with foam solution, the automatic valve should be closed and left in the normally closed position. Upon system actuation, water from the alarm valve will pressurize the valve and cause it to open allowing the foam concentrate to flow into the controller. GENERAL INFORMATION Piping Materials: Standard schedule 40 black steel or stainless steel pipe is suitable for use with Chemguard manufactured AFFF types of foam concentrates. Galvanized pipe is not suitable for use with AFFF concentrate. AFFFs have a solvent included in their formulation, which may dissolve standard pipe joint compound (pipe dope) normally used with plain water sprinkler systems. When installing a foam water fire protection system using AFFF concentrates, it is recommended that where the concentrate or the solution is in contact with any pipe joints etc., a quality Teflon TM tape in accordance with MIL-T-27730 and a Teflon TM based pipe joining compound be used on all threaded fillings. GENERAL INFORMATION If AFFF foam concentrate spills on any painted surface, immediately wash the area with water. The solvents in the AFFF may cause streaking of a painted surface.

It is recommended that any area where a bladder tank is installed be heated to a minimum of 35F. Freeze protected AFFFs are manufactured for storage in temperatures as low as -20F; however, after a bladder tank system has been flow tested and drained, a small amount of water could still be left inside the tank around the bladder. If subjected to temperatures below 32F, it could freeze and damage the bladder. Before any testing of the foam system is initiated, isolate the bladder tank from the system by closing the manual ball valves and flush the rest of the system with water to remove any rocks or other foreign material that may be in the pipe work. All valves, swing check, etc., shown on any sketches in this information are recommended to be installed within the piping arrangements to/from the bladder tank.

CONCENTRATE RATIO FLOW CONTROLLER (PROPORTIONER)


DESCRIPTION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

The Chemguard 3 controller is one component in the Bladder Tank Balanced Pressure Foam Proportioning Fire Protection system . The Chemguard Ratio Flow controller is a proportioner designed to meter the correct amount of foam concentrate into the water stream over a wide range of flows and pressures. These units are used in conjunction with either a bladder tank or a foam pump proportioning system. The operating principle of the controller is based upon the use of a modified venturi. As the water passes through the inlet jet a reduction in pressure in the annular area is created. This reduction allows the metering of the foam concentrate into the water stream through the foam concentrate metering orifice. FEATURES U.L. Listed. Proportioner body and inlet nozzle are cast in ASTM 85-5-5-5 brass. Machine faced to ANSI B16.1 class 12.5. This between flange controller is designed to fit between two 150 lbs. flat faced pipe flanges. To ensure a complete seal against each flange, each face of the controller is machined with 32 grooves per inch. The controller body is clearly marked with a flow direction arrow and label to identify the type of foam concentrate and percentage ratio. FLOW RANGE The following lists the nominal flow range for each size ratio controller. The flow rates may vary when using other foam concentrates. Please consult the Chemguard Engineering Department for specific applications.

Size 3 AR-AFFF 245-700 AFFF 70-750

OTHER INFORMATION To ensure correct operation of a ratio controller when used with a bladder tank, the pressure of the foam concentrate at the controller must be within 2 psi of the incoming water pressure. To ensure accurate proportioning over the flow range of the controller, it is recommended that a minimum water inlet pressure of 30 psi must always be available during operation of the system.

INSTALLATION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

For the foam system to function correctly, it is important that the following guidelines are followed: The controllers are designed to be mounted in the water supply system feed line in either a horizontal or a vertical configuration. Establish that the fire protection system design flow rate in gpm is within the flow range of the controller before installation. Check the foam concentrate inlet orifice to ensure that the correct size orifice has been installed for the type of foam concentrate that will be used in the system. A directional arrow is displayed on the body of the controller. This indicates the direction of the system flow. Ensure that the controller is mounted with the arrow going towards the system discharge devices. When the between flange type of controller is correctly mounted, the recovery section of the controller (shaped like a bell) is actually located inside the system pipe. If mounted correctly, the foam solution leaving the recovery section is flowing towards the discharge devices. The distance from the bladder tank to the controller is critical. It is important to keep the foam concentrate pressure at the proportioning controller within 2 psi of what the incoming water pressure is at that controller. The combined total equivalent length of pipe, fittings, valves, etc., in both the water supply inlet piping and the foam concentrate discharge piping should not exceed 50 equivalent feet (15.2 meters). As the foam concentrate is pushed out of the bladder into the concentrate piping, there is approximately 1 psi of friction loss within the bladder tank itself. This leaves approximately 1 psi to overcome any friction loss for the foam concentrate in the interconnecting piping between the bladder tank and the controller. When installing the water feed pipe to the bladder tank, ensure that this water supply to the bladder tank is installed upstream from the controller. Between the flange controller, be sure that the gaskets obtain a good seal between the pipe flange and the flange face on the controller. When the controller is mounted at a location below the top flange of the bladder tank or if the tank is under a constant water pressure, it is recommended that an automatic valve (normally closed) be installed on the foam concentrate line. This valve will prevent siphoning of the foam concentrate from the tank and prevent the possibility of any water contamination in the concentrate area of the tank. When mounted correctly, between flange type controllers are designed to sit inside the bolt circle used to bolt two pipe flanges together.

Installation Precautions Adherence to the following will aid in problem free installation with long-term reliability: WARNING - Several different sources of power can be connected to the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all sources of power before servicing Control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting cables while the unit is energized. Do not attempt to install, service, or operate this unit until this manual is read and understood. Caution - System Reacceptance Test after Software Changes: To ensure proper system operation, this product must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72-1993 Chapter 7 after any programming operation or change in sitespecific software. Reacceptance testing is required after any change, addition or deletion of system components, or after any modification, repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring. All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions known to be affected by a change must be 100% tested. In addition, to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected, at least 10% of initiating devices that are not directly affected by the change, up to a maximum of 50 devices, must also be tested and proper system operation verified. This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0-49 C / 32-120F and at a relative humidity of 85% RH o (non-condensing) at 30 C / 86F. However, the useful life of the systems standby batteries and the electronic components may be adversely affected by extreme temperature ranges and humidity. Therefore, it is recommended that this system and its peripherals be Installed in an environment with a nominal room temperature of 15-27C / 60-80F. Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a 10% l.R. drop from the specified device voltage. Like all solid state electronic devices, this system may operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning induced transients. Although no system is completely immune from lightning transients and interferences, proper grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an increased suscepti6ility to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the Technical Services Department it any problems are anticipated or encountered. Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits. Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing, reaming, or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make all cable entries from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they will not interfere with battery, transformer, and printed circuit board location. Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs. Over tightening may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure and difficulty with screw terminal removal. This system contains static-sensitive components. Always ground yourself with a proper wrist strap before handling any circuits so that static charges are removed from the body. Use static suppressive packaging to protect electronic assemblies removed from the unit Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and programming manuals. These instructions must be followed to avoid damage to the control panel and associated equipment FACP operation and reliability depend upon proper installation. Fire Alarm System Limitations While installing a fire alarm system may make lower insurance rates possible, its not a substitute for fire insurance! An automatic fire alarm system - typically made up of smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible warning devices, and a fire alarm control with remote notification capability can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection against property damage or loss of life

resulting from a fire.

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Any fire alarm system may fail for a variety of reasons: Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot reach the detectors such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Furthermore, all types of smoke detectors - both ionization and photoelectric types, have sensing limitations. No type of smoke detector can sense every kind of fire caused by carelessness and safety hazards like smoking hi bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, Improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson. IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the same room as the control panel and in rooms used by the system (or the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire. Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people if these devices are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building, A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical power. It AC power fails, the system will operate from standby batteries only for a specified time. Rate-of-Rise heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time. For this reason, the rate-of-rise feature of each detector should be tested at least once per year by a qualified fire protection specialist. Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel. Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premise tea central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily disabled. The most common cause of fire alarm malfunctions, however, is inadequate maintenance. All devices and system wiring should be tested and maintained by professional fire alarm installers following written procedures supplied with each device. System inspection and testing should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/or local fire codes. Adequate written records of alt Inspections should be kept FCC Warning WARNING: This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause interference to radio communications. It has been tested and found to comply with the limits for class A computing device pursuant to Subpart B of Part 15of FCC Rules, which is designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference when operated in a commercial environment Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense. Canadian Requirements This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class A limits for radiation noise emissions from digital apparatus set out in the Radio Interference Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.

AC POWER Green LED that illuminates steadily to indicate presence of AC power. SYSTEM ALARM Red LED that flashes when an alarm occurs. RELEASE Red LED that illuminates steadily when release occurs. After the Discharge Timer has expired, the LED will flash. SUPERVISORY Yellow LED that flashes upon activation of a supervisory device (such as tamper switch) on Zone 4. SYSTEM TROUBLE Yellow LED that flashes for any trouble condition, including those associated with option boards. CIRCUIT TROUBLE Yellow LED that flashes for trouble conditions on output circuits (notification and releasing circuits). ALARM SILENCED Yellow LED that illuminates steadily when the ALARM SILENCE switch has been pushed after an alarm. POWER TROUBLE Yellow LED that flashes for low or disconnected batteries and earth fault conditions. BATT Yellow LED that illuminates steadily on motherboard when battery is low or not detected (not visible through door). EARTH Yellow LED that illuminates steadily on motherboard during a ground fault condition (not visible through door). MICRO FAIL Yellow LED that illuminates on motherboard when watchdog timer detects microprocessor failure (not visible through door).

Control Switches TONE SILENCE Acknowledge alarms, troubles and supervisories. The panel has alarm and trouble resound with LED flash of new conditions. The flashing trouble LED(s) illuminate steadily on TONE SILENCE and the piezo sounder silences. A second trouble will resound the piezo. The piezo has three distinct sounds for alarm, trouble, and supervisory. Trouble conditions are self restoring. Alarms and supervisories latch and require RESET to clear. ALARM SILENCE Acknowledge for alarms and supervisories. The ALARM SILENCE switch will silence the local piezo, change any flashing alarm LEDs to steady, and turn off the notification appliance circuits (not the

Releasing Circuits). The ALARM SILENCED LED will illuminate. Alarm silence is a latching function and requires a RESET to clear.

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

Note: Releasing Circuits will turn off only if Discharge timer criteria is satisfied (see Section Setting PAR 3 Mode of Operation). ALARM ACTIVATE The ALARM ACTIVATE switch may be used to activate Notification Appliance Circuits. ALARM ACTIVATE also activates the System Alarm relay. ALARM ACTIVATE is a latching function. Pressing ALARM SILENCE silences the notification appliance circuits and System Alarm Relay and lights the Alarm Silenced LED. Pressing RESET returns the system to normal. SYSTEM RESET The RESET switch breaks power to all initiating device circuits, 4-wire smoke power and option boards and will clear any activated output circuits. If any alarm or trouble still exists after reset, they will reactivate the panel. Holding RESET down will perform a LAMP TEST function and will activate the piezo sounder. 2.3 Zone Status LEDs The alarm and/or trouble LED(s) will flash until the event(s) has been acknowledged (TONE or ALARM SILENCE), at which point the LED(s) will illuminate steadily. 2.4 Supervisory Zone 4 is always used for monitoring supervisory devices (such as valve tamper switches). A short circuit on this zone (activation of a N.O. contact) will cause the supervisory LED and the zone 4 yellow LED to flash. The piezo sounder will generate a unique sound. Pressing TONE SILENCE will silence the piezo and cause the supervisory LED to illuminate steadily, but the Zone 4 Trouble LED will continue to flash. Supervisory signals latch and require RESET to clear. The ALARM SILENCE switch will silence the piezo, cause the supervisory LED to illuminate steadily and turn off the Supervisory Notification Circuit. An open circuit on Zone 4 will be reported as a zone trouble. 2.5 Zone Disable If a zone has been disabled, an alarm that occurs on that zone will flash the red zone LED, but neither the piezo nor any output circuit will activate. If both power sources are removed from the system, all zones will be re-enabled upon restoration of power. Disable status will be lost. The Zone Disable routine makes use of the four panel switches as follows: 1) Press and hold in the TONE SILENCE switch. 2) With the TONE SILENCE switch held in, press (in sequence) the ALARM SILENCE switch, the ALARM ACTIVATE switch, and then the RESET switch. 3) The Zone 1 Alarm LED will flash. 4) To disable Zone 1, press the RESET switch. The Zone 1 yellow LED will light to show that the zone is disabled. Note: The RESET switch toggles disable status for the selected zone. 5) To select the next zone, press the ALARM SILENCE switch. 6) To select the previous zone, press the ALARM ACTIVATE switch. 7) When disable selections are complete, release the TONE SILENCE switch. If any zone has been disabled, the trouble relay will activate and System Trouble LED will flash.

EMERGENCY MANUAL RELEASE


1. PRODUCT NAME VIKING EMERGENCY RELEASE Model C-1 Part Number 01553C 2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FOAM MIXING FIRE SUPPRESSION PACKAGE

HP0296 REV B

The Viking Emergency Release operates as a manual tripping device for use on Deluge and Flow Control Valve Trim and on hydraulic and pneumatic release systems controlling operation of Viking Deluge and Flow Control Valves. It consists of a special quick-opening, lever operated ball valve mounted in a stainless steel enclosure with a full opening door. 3. TECHNICAL DATA Approvals: Models C-1 UL Listed Category VLTR Component of UL Listed, c-UL Listed, and FM Approved Viking Conventional Deluge Valve Trim Rated to 250 PSI (1 724 kPa) water pressure Materials: Refer to Figure 1 Shipping Weight: 4 lbs. (1,8 kg) 4. OPERATION The special quick-opening, lever operated ball valve of the Emergency Release is installed on a special 1/2 (15 mm) NPT nipple inside a stainless steel enclosure. The valve is closed when the handle is aligned with the pipe nipple. This allows the valve to be closed during normal operation when the door of the Emergency Release is closed. The following operation instructions are printed on the outside of the Emergency Release door:

IN CASE OF FIRE, OPEN DOOR AND PULL HANDLE

When the door of the Emergency Release is opened and the handle of the special ball valve is pulled, the valve opens to relieve pressure maintained on the release system. Electric Release System: Standard Trim for Deluge and Flow Control Valves equipped for electric release, requires an Emergency Release to be connected to the hydraulic release trim between the priming chamber of the valve used and the electric solenoid. The Emergency Release allows operation of the system independent of the electric release system. After Operation: DO NOT RETURN the handle to its original position until the system is to be reset. 5. AVAILABILITY AND SERVICE The Viking Emergency Release is available through a network of domestic and international distributors. See the Yellow Pages of the telephone directory for a local distributor (listed under Sprinklers-Automatic-Fire) or contact The Viking Corporation. 6. GUARANTEE For details of warranty, refer to Vikings current price schedule or contact Viking directly. The Model C-3 Emergency Release is without guarantee or warranty either expressed or implied. 7.

Deluge and Flow Control Valve listings and approvals may require one Emergency Release to be connected to the hydraulic release trim connected to the priming chamber of the valve used. This Emergency Release must be located in the immediate area of the valve and is used to manually operate the system independently of any automatic release system. Refer to current Viking Deluge and Flow Control Trim Charts. Additional Emergency Releases should be located near operators stations, exits, or other readily accessible locations and in accordance with applicable codes and standards and the Authority Having Jurisdiction. The Emergency Release is pre-assembled. Four 5/16 (7,9 mm) diameter holes located in the back of the enclosure are provided for mounting purposes. (Refer to Figure 1.) 1. Install piping from the release system to the desired location for the Emergency Release. Unless otherwise specified in the Technical Data, release piping should be 1/2 galvanized piping. Provide a fitting with 1/2 (15 mm) NPT internal threads to connect the unit. 2. When used on hydraulic release systems the outlet of the Emergency Release must discharge to open drain. The outlet is equipped with 1/2 (15 mm) NPT internal threads to allow connection of piping to open drain. 3. Apply a small amount of pipe-joint compound or tape to the external threads of all pipe connection required. Take care not to allow any compound, tape or other foreign matter inside the openings. 8. MAINTENANCE NOTICE: The owner is responsible for maintaining the fire protection system and devices in proper operating condition. The Viking Emergency Release must be kept free of foreign matter, freezing conditions, corrosive atmospheres, contaminated water supplies, and any condition that could impair its operation or damage the device. It is imperative that fire protection sprinkler systems be inspected and tested on a regular basis. The frequency of the inspections may vary due to contaminated water supplies, corrosive water supplies, and corrosive atmospheres. For minimum maintenance and inspection requirements, refer to the National Fire Protection Associations pamphlet that describes care and maintenance of sprinkler systems. In addition, the Authority Having Jurisdiction may have additional maintenance, testing, and inspection requirements that must be followed. WARNING: Any system maintenance that involves placing a control valve or detection System out of service may eliminate the fire protection capabilities of that system. Prior to proceeding, notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction. Consideration should be given to employment of a fire patrol in the affected area. 8-A. INSPECTION Visual inspection: 1. Verify that the door of the Emergency Release is not obstructed and opens freely. 2. Check for signs of mechanical damage and/or corrosive activity. If detected, perform maintenance as required or, if necessary, replace the device. 8-B. OPERATIONAL TEST Refer to Technical Data for the valve used. 1. Notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction and those in the area affected by the test. 2. Close the main water supply control valve, placing the system out of service. 3. Open the door of the Emergency Release and pull the handle. Air or water from the release system should discharge to open drain. 4. When testing is complete, return the handle to its normal operating position and close the door. 5. Establish normal operating pressure in the release system. 6. Refer to Technical Data for the valve used to open the main water supply control valve and place the system back in service. 7. Notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction and those in the area affected by the test that the system is back in service.

P32 Series Fire Alarm Pull Station


Installation Instructions
The P32 Series Pull Station may be surface mounted with a supplied Backbox option or flush mounted on a standard single gang switch box. In either case be sure to follow local codes and regulations. To comply with ADA standards the Pull Station must be less than 48 inches above the floor for front wheelchair access, and less than 54 inches above the floor for side wheelchair access.

Surface Mount
A surface mount installation uses a red diecast or sheet metal Backbox. The Backbox has four pre-drilled mounting holes of 0.187 inch diameter. A screw of size 8 or smaller can be used to attach the Backbox to a wall. After the Backbox is in place, attach the conduit. The cast Backbox has an opening that is tapped for a 1/2 NPT fitting which may be oriented at the top or bottom when the box is attached to the wall. The sheet metal Backbox has conduit knockouts. Field wiring is connected to a terminal block on all models as shown in the wiring drawings. The wire should not be wrapped around the terminal, but placed under the clamping plate. The housing is locked using either a key lock or a hex lock, depending on the version purchased. Unlock the housing by turning the key clockwise and swing down the front of the housing to make the sheet metal mounting plate accessible. Mount the metal plate to the Backbox using the four, 1/4 inch length, 8-32 screws that are supplied. If a breakrod is being used, move the PULL handle to about a 45 angle with the face of the housing. Insert a breakrod into the cavity beneath the PULL handle. Place the PULL handle back into the normal position (flush with the housing). While holding the PULL handle in place, move the housing back to the upright position and lock. The Pull Station is now ready for operation. Flush Mount Most flush mount installations may be attached to a standard single gang switch box (not supplied by Potter). The only difference between a surface mount installation and a flush mount installation is that two 6-32 screws are placed through the slots that are centered on the metal mounting plate.

They are available in a variety of configurations to satisfy most applications. The Sentry Model meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Specifically, it has been tested by UL for compliance with the 5 lb. pull force requirement. In addition, the total depth of the unit when mounted is less than the required 4 inches. Whats more, the Sentry can be operated easily with one hand without having to grasp and when opened will not obstruct the use of the pull station, an important requirement for ADA applications. Units with the optional alarm module can be used as false alarm deterrents in applications such as schools, libraries, etc. When installed, the alarm module will emit a piercing scream when the cover is opened. This startling noise will help to deter most malicious pranksters and to indicate the location of the problem. A weatherproof kit is available which will allow the unit to be installed in outdoor applications. This optional kit will provide NEMA 3R protection to the device.
