Corrosion inSprinkler Systems
Corrosion (both oxygen and microbiologically influenced) is prevalent in fire sprinkler systems. Wet, dry, and pre-action fire sprinkler systems have seen an increase in corrosion since the late 1980s.
Several factors, such as thinner walled pipe, increased inspections and maintenance testing, and changes in fire sprinkler design have been responsible. Corrosion monitoring and mitigation is needed now more than ever before to forecast and eliminate such costly corrosion.
It may seem like replacing pipe is a simple and easy solution, but the costs of corrosion are far greater in the long run. Replacement fire sprinkler systems can be 2 to 3 times more expensive than the initial install.Click here to learn more
Other issues that can arise from corrosion in fire sprinkler systems:
Loss of property
Loss of production
Total system replacements
How Commonis corrosion?
It is far more common than you may think. A recent VdS study showed:
In only 12½ years, 73% of fire sprinkler systems have significant corrosion issues.Dry System Corrosion Solutions
In 25 years, 35% of fire sprinkler systems have significant corrosion issues.Wet System Corrosion Solutions
