Since hits modest beginnings in 1990, HIDCAL has become the most widely used program in Latin America to perform hydraulic calculations, required for the design or evaluation of water-based fire systems.

Executes the calculations according to the recognized standards NFPA 13, NFPA 15, NFPA 750 and NFPA 24. Loss calculations are calculated based on the Hazen-Williams equation or the Darcy Weisbach equation.

Its user interface is friendly and lightweight. there is no need to draw in autocad to obtain the hydraulic calculation.

HIDCAL VM allows the calculation of water-based extinction systems in the form of a tree, rings or meshes.

HIDCAL VM allows the calculation of water-based extinction systems in the form of a tree, rings or meshes. And the following results can be obtained:
  • Spinkler systems
  • Flood Systems
  • Global fire network system
  • Hose networks
  • Foam systems
  • Water mist systems

In Foam systems, calculations of losses in the pipes leading solution according to NFPA 11 can be performed with HIDCAL.

You can model the behavior of systems of any non-compressible Newtonian fluid, by entering the kinematic viscosity of the fluid, when the Darcy – Weisbach equation is used to calculate losses.
