No Flow Required!
Potter's Auto-Test VSR is a new and innovative way of performing a flow test without flowing water, promoting water conservation and reducing corrosion.
The PCMPK consists of the necessary corrosion monitoring probes and pressure switches that, when added to the Potter Corrosion Monitoring Station, provides notification to the fire/sprinkler administrator when there may be an excessive amount of corrosion taking place in the sprinkler piping. The corrosion monitoring probe has a precision thin wall thickness which will eventually corrode through allowing the system water or air pressure to enter into the probe and actuate the pressure switch. When the pressure switch is wired to the building fire alarm panel, a supervisory or trouble signal is generated notifying the fire/sprinkler administrator. This is the notification to remove the test coupons, that were installed at the same time as the probe(s), for analysis on the condition of sprinkler piping. The corrosion monitoring probes are single use devices and must be replaced upon the installation of new test coupons.
