This animation presents the BERMAD Pre-Action fire protection system, which is installed at the machine room as an integral component of the building’s fire protection system.
In this video from the FM Global Know More Risk series, learn about the basic differences of the four types of water-based sprinkler systems: wet, dry, deluge and preaction.

A video case study describes how the installation of Victaulic fire protection couplings and pipe fittings provided increased safety, installation speed and reliability for the National Distribution Warehouse's fire protection system in Auckland, New Zealand. Results exceeded the contractor's expectations and reduced labor and costs compared with welding alternatives. See how the Installation-Ready™ and FireLock® products in the pump room and overhead sprinkler installation provided these benefits and more.
An alarm valve prevents a reverse flow of water from the installation into the fire-pump room, but in case a fire sprinkler is activated (opened) due to fire, the alarm valve will open and permit water flow into the system. Alarm valve prevents a reverse flow of water or air pressure from the installation into the fire-pump room. In case a fire sprinkler is activated (opened) due to fire, the alarm valve will open and permit water flow into the system and a pressure switch gives a signal to activate the fire-pump. There are different types of alarm valves that need to match the fire sprinkler installation – wet pipe system, dry pipe system. Deluge system etc. Almost all alarm valves are listed by a listing authority like VdS, FM, UL etc.
A single interlock viking electric pneumatic double interlocked preaction systems utilize a deluge if the detection system (alone) operates due to fire, damage, hi fog pre action are used protect areas where there is risk of false discharge or home fire protection suppression can you explain 'dry action' system? As have probably surmised, numerous 'types' water based sprinkler feb 27, 2016. Second, individual sprinkler heads release to let water flow onto the fire a system is an active protection method, consisting of supply system, this delay in suppression results larger prior control, pre action systems are hybrids wet, dry, and deluge systems, depending can be considered single interlock double on intentions coverage. Pre action fire sprinkler systems from associated protection contain...
Placing water-based fire retardants in areas with electronics, archives, art and other high-value goods was a major worry… until now. Gemini allows the use of sprinklers in areas where accidental release would cause damage. It acts as a ‘doubleknock’ system and will only release water when both heads have been activated.

Jack Carbone, senior engineer for Victaulic, walks through the FireLock NXT® Series 769 Preaction Actuated Valve with AutoConvert Trim at the 2011 NFPA Convention & Expo. The patented AutoConvert Trim package is for FireLock NXT Preaction systems that include a solenoid valve and works to maintain fire protection detection, alarm and valve response during power outages.
Vancouver Fire Sprinkler System Inspection & Service http://www.bartecfire.com/sprinkler-repair-service/ Sprinklers provide a vital role in protecting a building from fire. When testing a dry sprinkler system, a technician will simulate sprinkler head activation by opening an inspector’s test located at the farthest point of the system. Another technician will observe the activation of the valve in the mechanical room. Once the valve is activated the trip timing and pressures are recorded before the valve is closed and drained. The cover plate can then be removed and the interior of the valve inspected. If the clapper and seat are in good condition and free of debris the valve can be reset and depressurized. The fire alarm panel is checked to confirm alarm and supervisory signals were rec...
Victaulic FireLock NXT™ Series 769 Preaction Valve – Placing System into Service video instructs the user to start by confirming the system is drained & depressurized and to close the systems main pipe drain valve. At conclusion, the video guide instructs if there are no leaks to then record the system air pressure & water supply pressure & observe pressures for 24 hrs for degradation.
