Technical Nirvana Achieved at FSSA Meeting February 23, 2010

Posted by shawnpci in Fire Systems, FSSA.

A technical nirvana of sorts was had during a presentation by FSSA’s Technical Committee Director, Dan Hubert. Dan spoke eloquently about the numerous technical publications available through the Association. Most of the 161 industry leaders in attendance had not had the opportunity before this meeting to delve into the various manuals developed by the Technical Committee.
Starting with FSSA’s Inspection and Test Guide, Dan reviewed how this latest publication leads an inspector through the details of properly and professionally conducting a special hazards system inspection.
Time was also spent discussing other FSSA publications including:

  • FSSA Pipe Design Handbook, which is referenced in several NFPA standards
  • FSSA Cylinder Handling Guide
  • FSSA CO2 Rate by Volume Calculation Guide

and one of the more recent publications, the FSSA Pressure Relief Vent Area Guide and Software Bundle. This is a “must have” for anyone working with Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems since now NFPA 2001 requires relief vent calculations to be provided on all project drawings.

The FSSA Annual Meeting continues through February 23rd.
