Potter Acquires Harrington, Evax, and CPG
Announcing the acquisition of three mainstay product lines in the fire alarm industry: Harrington Fire Alarm, Evax Systems, and CPG Signals.
The Model VSG is a flexible vane type of waterflow switch for use in wet pipe water mist systems where a low flow for alarm is required. It is designed for installation in sections of 2 to 4 inch (50mm to 100mm) stainless steel or brass pipe with wall thickness indicated inthe product datasheet (see "Nominal OD and Wall Thickness"). The unit may also be used as a sectional waterflow detector on large systems. The unit contains an output relay and an adjustable electronic…Continue Reading
A sprinkler system protects buildings, property and, most importantly, lives. But that same sprinkler system needs protection as well. Most sprinkler systems are made of steel piping, and when oxygen and water are trapped inside those pipes, corrosion will occur unless preventative measures are taken. Without corrosion protection, blockages and pinhole leaks start to happen, shortening the life of the sprinkler system and decreasing its effectiveness during a fire. Leaks and blockages…Continue Reading
The Potter PS15 Series Supervisory Pressure Actuated Switches are designed primarily to detect an increase and/or decrease from normal system pressure in automatic fire sprinkler systems. Typical applications are: air/nitrogen supervision in Dry pipe and pre-action systems, pressure tanks, air supplies, and water supplies. The PS15 has two switches. The Low switch is factory set to activate at approximately 10 psi (0,35 BAR) on a decrease in pressure. The High switch is factory set to…Continue Reading

If a fire occurs, flowswitches signal fire panels, which signal strobe lights and horns that warn occupants to evacuate, all while alerting the Fire Department. Everyone is safe with minimal damage to the property. It is only when things go wrong and people perish or lose property due…Continue Reading
