  • Second Revision No. 1-NFPA 16-2014 [ Section No. 3.3.6 ]

    3.3.6* Foam-Water Sprinkler System.A piping network employing automatic sprinklers, nozzles or other discharge devices, connected to asource of foam concentrate and to a water supply. The piping network is equipped with dischargedevices, consisting of sprinklers or nozzles, for discharging the extinguishing agent over the area to beprotected. The piping is connected to the water supply through a control valve that is commonly actuatedby operation of automatic detection equipment installed in the same areas as open discharge devices.When this valve opens, water flows into the piping system, foam concentrate is injected into the water,and the resulting foam solution discharging through the discharge devices generates and distributesfoam. Upon exhaustion of the foam concentrate supply, water discharge follows and continues untilmanually shut off. Existing deluge sprinkler systems that have been converted to the use of aqueousfilm-forming foam or film-forming fluoroprotein foam are considered foam-water sprinkler systems.3.3.6.1* Foam-Water Deluge System.A foam-water sprinkler system employing open discharge devices, which are attached to a piping systemthat is connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a detection system,which is installed in the same areas as the discharge devices. When this valve opens, water flows into thepiping system and discharges from all discharge devices attached thereto.3.3.6.2* Foam-Water Dry Pipe System.A foam-water sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers or nozzles that are attached to a pipingsystem that contains air or nitrogen under pressure, the release of which (as from the opening of asprinkler) permits the water pressure to open a valve known as a dry pipe valve. The water then flows intothe piping system and out the opened sprinklers.3.3.6.3* Foam-Water Preaction System.A foam-water sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers or nozzles attached to a piping systemcontaining air that might or might not be under pressure, with a supplemental detection system installed inthe same area as the sprinklers. Actuation of the detection system opens a valve that permits water toflow into the sprinkler piping system and to be discharged from any sprinklers that have activated.3.3.6.4* Foam-Water Spray System.A foam-water sprinkler system designed to use nozzles rather than sprinklers.3.3.6.5* Preprimed System.A wet pipe system containing foam solution.
