Scoping Study Deluge System Modification


Rotaflow has awarded a contract by Suncor in 2018 to perform a scoping study for modification of an existing deluge system at one of their plants in northern Alberta that consists of 17 zones. Rotaflow scope included preparation of a detailed hydraulic assessment of the system and evaluating different options including change in deluge system discharge nozzle type and elevation, header pipe size, etc. As an outcome, Rotaflow proposed a cost-effective solution to improve system overall reliability while minimizing the need for any major upgrading of this deluge system. A detailed hydraulic calculation was submitted as a supporting document outlining the outcomes of different scenarios and the final proposed solution.
