FIRE SPRINKLER CORROSION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
WE DIDN’T JUST SET THE STANDARD, WE INVENTED IT.
That‘s right. We invented nitrogen-based corrosion control. Our cutting-edge systems work together to extend the life of fire sprinkler systems, while our advanced monitoring capabilities ensure system integrity by utilizing an early warning system. We’re improving those systems and the way we do business every day. When your technology has the ability to save lives, you don’t stop at “good enough”.
Corrosion is often begrudgingly accepted in the industry as unavoidable; but using ECS patented cutting edge technology, corrosion can be prevented even before it starts! This will present huge savings in not only maintenance costs but also installation costs, as it is clearly stated in FM Global Data Sheet 2-1 (Oct 2016) that galvanised pipes need not to be used for sprinkler systems if the pipes are filled with nitrogen gas.
Simple to use
The design of ECS system is meant to be user friendly and installation can be done without extensive training. There is no bulk machinery nor gigantic compressors and most of our equipment do not have large footprint too. A single ECS AG-2000 system can serve up to 2000 gallons which is easily twice that of conventional Nitrogen generators’ capacity.
ECS proprietary systems are fully endorsed by FM Global and NFPA. In FM Global Data Sheet 2-01, Nitrogen gas is advocated as a method of corrosion prevention in dry/pre-action sprinkler systems, whereas galvanised pipes filled with compressed air will experience material failure in periods of even 2-3 years! Furthermore, FM Global Data Sheet 2-81 full-flow trip testing can be tested after 10 years which is much shorter than 3 years when using compressed air. Lastly, internal obstruction investigation is no longer required for dry/pre-action sprinkler systems using nitrogen.
ECS air vents are also supported by NFPA since in air venting requirement 7.1.5 each wet sprinkler pipe system must be provided with single air vent. This helps to expel oxygen gas in the pipes which causes the dreaded corrosion.
