EPI develops detailed hydraulic modes of firewater and foam systems that are field validated to determine the root-causes of insufficient flow and pressure.  These detailed hydraulic models identify the most cost effective solution that is carried through the FEED, detailed design, procurement and construction management phases.  This technology based approach combined with EPI's high level of expertise enables us to determine the lowest cost solutions to meet API and NFPA  recommended practices.


Firewater Systems Study Benefits:

  • Determine the impact of identified pump degradation and silt build-up on current fire-fighting capacity for each operating unit and storage area
  • Identify if each unit has the fire water flow and pressure capacity for all monitors, deluge, and other firefighting equipment
  • Identify the lowest cost solutions to meet and exceed industry fire fighting standards
  • Perform blast and radiation analysis to determine FW demands
