SPRINKLERMATIC UNIVERSITY OVERVIEW


What Is Sprinklermatic University

Sprinklermatic University is a private learning facility located in Davie, Florida. Sprinklermatic University is used for hands on orientation, training, and education to the fire sprinkler industry and firefighters with the purpose of giving a general overview and Introduction to fire sprinklers and fire protection systems. This University is unique in that it is the only facility that affords students the ability to operate real equipment and actually flow water in a learning environment to practice their craft. Sprinklermatic University is an approved training provider with the Florida State Fire College. The facility provides continuing education to firefighters, property managers, NICET and other professional licenses and certifications. Sprinklermatic University is an established fire protection systems laboratory specifically designed for training purposes and in doing so unites the fire sprinkler industry and fire service personnel.

Curriculum Overview

Sprinklermatic University’s Fire Protection Systems Program curriculum is designed to give students a general overview of fire sprinklers and fire protection systems. The curriculum provides a breakdown of the NFPA standards and other legislature that govern fire protection systems. Educational objectives are listed and will be met by students at the completion of the program. There are currently five courses which have been approved by the Florida State Fire College. Each course provides (3) CEUs to firefighters, fire inspectors, and fire instructors. At the completion of the 15 hour Fire Protection Systems Program, students will be awarded a certificate of completion, a “Sprink Geek” Member card, and a Sprinklermatic University challenge coin.

Education has always been paramount to our approach in business; we work harder and smarter.

Sprinklermatic has more than several field technicians that are currently enrolled or graduated from the ABC apprenticeship program; one of which was a participant in the National Apprenticeship Contest.  One of our team members regularly participates in Dale Carnegie Training. All managers and superintendents receive key training in communication, conflict resolution and management training. Education is key to being cutting edge and proficient. We are eternal students and love what we do.

FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEMS LABORATORY OVERVIEW

The Sprinklermatic University facility contains a 500 GPM @ 100 PSI diesel fire pump fed by (2) 1,000 gallon holding tanks. The test header is piped back to the holding tank and the water is recirculated. The test header has pilotless nozzles and a nozzle to take a pitot reading. The fire pump RPM’s (Speed) can be adjusted to illustrate several pump curves for training. The pump is complete with a controller including a jockey pump and jockey pump controller.  

Riser # 1: A Flow Control Valve with Fire Cycle Trim; this is an intricate system as it allows the system to be turned off. These valves have quick ON / OFF capabilities allowing for endless applications.

Riser #2: A Double Interlocking Electric / Pneumatic Single Interlocking Preaction System. This is different from the single as this system requires two detectors plus the loss of air to activate.

Riser #3: A Single Interlocking Electric / Pneumatic Single Interlocking Preaction System. This system is similar to a wet system; it has closed sprinkler heads, but does not have water on the system- it has a low volume of air on the system, an electric detection system and releasing alarm panel.

Riser #4: A Dry Pipe Valve with manual reset. This is an older style and requires the face of the valve to be removed to reset the valve and requires an air supply.

Riser #5: An Alarm Check Valve with Water Motor Gong. The alarm check valve serves as a check valve by trapping pressurized water above the clapper and preventing reverse flow from sprinkler piping. The valve is designed to initiate an alarm during a sustained flow of water (such as the flow required by an open sprinkler) by operating an optional water motor alarm and/or alarm pressure switch.

Riser #6: A Shotgun Riser. This is the Viking 4” EasyPac Commercial Riser Manifold Assembly, available in sizes of 1 ¼“ – 8” for commercial systems. The assembly is designed with all required equipment and standards components that can be replaced in the field including pressure gauges, Potter flow switches, 3-way gauge control valve and drain valve.

Riser #7: This is not a riser; it is actually a Standpipe. Standpipes are usually required in all occupancies where the lowest level of fire department vehicular use is more than 30’-0” or more than three levels. Standpipes are required in all required exit passages – this means stairwells.

Pressure Regulating: Two types of PRV’s – PRV’s are required where working pressure is in excess of 175 PSI

Riser #8: It is a standard 13-R riser. The riser is built from 2” black steel pipe, Viking Riser Manifold, pressure gauges, control valve, flow switch and drain with pressure relief valve.

Riser #9: It is a standard 13-D riser. The riser is built from 1” black steel pipe; Viking Riser Manifold, pressure gauges, control valve, flow switch and drain with pressure relief valve. The assembly has a 1” Wilkins backflow and control valve.
