Corrosion Management for Fire Sprinkler Systems
This presentation discusses the science of corrosion in fire sprinkler systems. The benefits and practical application of using Nitrogen Gas to inert Wet Pipe, Dry Pipe and Preaction Fire Sprinkler Systems to prevent and manage internal corrosion. Under a nitrogen atmosphere, oxygen corrosion, which is the primary cause of corrosion related failures in sprinkler systems, can be completely controlled resulting in reduced risk (life safety, leak and business continuity), enhanced performance, and extended life of the fire sprinkler system. Excluding oxygen from both wet and dry (pre-action) pipe fire sprinkler system piping by purging with nitrogen gas can reduce the corrosion rate in a fire sprinkler system by 99% and significantly extend the useful life of the piping.
