185Graph is a 1.85 graph based fire sprinkler hydraulic calculation software program specifically designed to graph sprinkler demand vs. water supply. It calculates base of the riser demand with the Grid Calculator, Tree Calculator or Head by Head Worksheet and will plot these demands against any water supply. Water supplies can be adjusted for friction loss, elevation and/or hose streams.
185Graph has compact, single form modular design with all data input and output ergonomically displayed on the same form. Instantly determine a sprinkler system's weakness by inspecting the detailed pressure loss data, and develop the most appropriate recommendations for improvement. With routine use, you will develop an instinctive sense of "what is adequate" and "what improvements are required". Quickly change sprinkler heads, pipe diameter, density, area, skew, pump size, etc. Immediately see the effect of lowering storage or reinforcing the sprinkler piping and/or water supply.
185Graph is written in Visual Basic 6.0 (32 bit compatibility). It supports English and International units, file saving, and can seamlessly read and convert files saved in different units. A multi-demand form is included to automatically plot and label up to 10 demand curves. Undo/redo functionality is provided to assist with customizing the graph. Additionally, new pump rating & graphing capabilities have been included in the latest release.

Visually compare sprinkler demand vs. water supply quickly. Draw lines, enter text and include a title block in your presentations.
Fast "What-If" Analysis
Change sprinkler heads, pipe diameter, density, area, skew, pump size, etc. Immediately see the effect of lowering storage or reinforcing the sprinkler piping and/or water supply. With use, you will develop an instinctive sense of "what is adequate" and "what improvement are needed".
Expose System Weakness
Quickly determine a sprinkler system's weakness with detailed pressure loss data and develop the most appropriate recommendations for improvement.
Compact Single Form Modular Design
Integrated Grid, Tree, Head by Head, Supply, Friction Loss, Pump and Gradient forms show data input and calculated results ergonomically on the same form.
Improved Windows 7 Support
Improved installation & functionality under this latest Windows operating system.
The application now supports both English and International units and common pipe schedules. Default units can now be permanently set. Grid and Tree Calculators now support shape factor of 2.0.
File saving is provided for the main Graph, Grid, Tree and Head by Head Worksheet.
The program can seamlessly read, open and convert all saved data files without respect to the units that the files were saved in. Great if you have an international business.
Professional Labeling Feature
Professional point/line labeling functionality has been added to spruce up any presentation.
Customizable Logo! Add your company logo to the main Graph form. The logo will print on all program output.
This feature improves the ability for the user to customize the graph. Undo will erase up to 100 recent changes one at a time. Redo adds back all erased changes.
The multi-demand form automatically plots and label up to 10 demand curves. File saving is supported.
New pump rating & graphing capabilities have been included in the latest release.
