Protect Your Fire Sprinkler System From Costly Corrosion
Oxidation corrosion—better known as rust—relentlessly threatens fire sprinkler systems. Left unchecked, it weakens and clogs critical pipes and fittings, resulting in costly repairs and reduced system performance that imperils people, property, and revenue.
Aided and abetted by air trapped in the pipes, sprinkler system corrosion manifests itself in the form of pinhole leaks, water damage, plugged sprinkler heads, and reduced water flow. Ultimately, corrosion can lead to the untimely—and expensive—demise of your sprinkler system.
Corrosion control and mitigation options range from strategically placed vents and surgical repairs to total system replacement. On the control front, an inexpensive yet highly efficient way to fight corrosion is to force the oxygen out of your sprinkler system.
