K for Fire Sprinklers
Sprinklers, spargers and nozzles must supply the required flowrate when in use. Typically, this equipment is used for fire protection systems, and only active during emergencies. One parameter used to properly size and design fire sprinklers is the K factor for fire sprinklers. AFT Fathom can use the K fire sprinkler to automatically calculate a pressure drop and flow conditions at spray discharge points.
