Deluge for protection of high-pressure risers

Will use of deluge protect high pressure risers in a fire in a platform shaft from rupture and hence fire escalation? To find the answer to this question ComputIT run a KFX®-study to find the transient and non-uniform heat loads on the risers. Various leak conditions were analysed and the conclusion from the study was that with a given deluge design, satisfactory protection of the risers exist.

The video below shows a KFX® simulation of one scenario. Blue colour represents the water droplet flow.
