Talking with customers we found a requirement for a new rapid start system to be developed to supply fire systems with as much water as possible in the shortest amount of time. We have named this new technology Sprinkler Safe and can add it to any of our booster sets that utilise a central control panel. Here is how it works…
To protect a buildings’ pipework from rapid pressure spikes (water hammer) we developed our market-leading Safety Fill technology. This slowly fills a building’s water pipework for a couple of minutes before allowing the pumps to run at full power. Prefilling the pipework with water in this way can save your building from very expensive damage. This is vital in everyday use protecting against possible issues caused by maintenance work and power failures.
When a booster set is also used to supply a fire sprinkler system the speed of a water pump system restart is of the utmost importance.
Our Sprinkler Safe technology adds a volt-free input to our control panel that can receive a signal showing that the sprinkler system has been triggered and we use this to override all existing protocols and enable all of the pumps to deliver water at full pressure and flow.
When a fire breaks out electrical systems are prone to powercuts or the building might automatically switch to backup power so the removal of normal start-up procedures is vital. This feature now enables your sprinkler system to perform its best in the quickest time possible and help fight that fire.
Using both Safety Fill and Sprinkler Safe technologies in your building provides you with a market-leading solution to protect your buildings in everyday scenarios and dreaded ones alike.
