PIPENET is a powerful software tool for rapid flow analysis of pipe and duct networks.

Three modules ensure that, no matter how extensive or complex your network, PIPENET will perform.

Which PIPENET Module do I Need?

PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler Module

Specifically intended for the design of fire protection systems. PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler complies with the NFPA12, NFPA15 and NFPA16 rules. This module can be used for a wide range of design or sprinkler systems, ringmain systems, and foam solution systems.

PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler Module sets the global standard for the design of fire protection systems especially in the oil, gas and process plant industries – deluge, ringmain, sprinkler or foam concentrate systems.
