According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than half of the 8,160 structure fires involving commercial cooking equipment or ventilation components that occur annually begin in kitchens or cooking areas. Between 2004 and 2008, these cooking fires caused three deaths, 100 injuries, and $229 million in director property damage each year. A kitchen […]
Kitchen Hood systems are one of the most widely used fire protection systems given the fire source and fuel load. Kitchen Hood systems include the hood, exhaust, and ducting systems over your cooking appliances. This system vents airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, odors, heat, and steam. These systems are customized for the kitchen layout […]
It has been established that replacing the Oxygen in your sprinkler pipes with Nitrogen will reduce, or even stop, corrosion; thus, significantly extending the service life of your sprinkler pipes, and reducing maintenance and repair costs. Since the solution to corrosion is nitrogen, the question becomes how to produce and inject Nitrogen into your fire […]
Fire sprinkler systems experience corrosion due to the interaction of oxygen, an unprotected metal, and moisture. In 25 years, 35% of wet fire sprinkler systems have significant corrosion issues. In only 12.5 years, 73% of dry and pre-action systems have significant corrosion issues. Corrosion will cause leaks in your sprinkler pipes, resulting in costly repairs […]
Corrosion is a problem that must be addressed in both dry pipe and wet pipe sprinkler systems. In this article, we will discuss pipe corrosion in wet sprinkler systems and methods of preventing the corrosion. The water that fills wet sprinkler pipes contains approximately 10 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved oxygen. All wet systems […]
Understanding the correct cause can help you to slow or stop dry sprinkler pipe corrosion. Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) was once thought to be the primary threat to sprinkler pipe longevity. However, further research has found that oxygen is the primary factory in sprinkler pipe corrosion for both wet and dry pipe systems. In this […]
Stat-X fire suppression systems are an extremely effective method for protecting your valuable assets from fire. Due to their fast response time, compact size, low fire extinguishing concentration, and environmental safety, Stat-X fire suppression systems may be used in critical applications across a wide range of industries — especially in areas where weight and space […]
Increased OSHA fines are now active for all safety violations OSHA has new enforcement and penalty policies that became effective August 1st, 2016. Due to these new policies, companies with more than 250 employees can expect increased scrutiny and fines. Companies with fewer than 250 employees can receive a fine reduction of 20% from the […]
What are Drum Drips? Drum drips are drains on dry sprinkler systems, which are used to empty the dry sprinkler pipe of any water that has collected due to condensation or water draining within the system. Since dry pipe systems are utilized in areas where water may freeze, it is important to regularly remove any […]
