Five Types of Sprinkler System Malfunctions

The fire sprinkler systems in our Queens buildings stand quiet sentry until called into action to dowse a fire and perhaps save lives. Fire sprinklers in Queens are effective and low-maintenance systems that rarely if ever malfunction. But when a fire sprinkler system malfunction does occur, the water it distributes can cause as much damage to a facility as a fire can. It’s important, and in many cases it is the law, to perform a regularly scheduled routine of inspection and repair when required. The experts at Allstate Sprinkler Corp. can assist as experts in sprinkler systems in Queens.

Overheating

Overhead water sprinklers are activated by the heat that the sprinkler head senses in the room. When a room’s temperature reaches a specific measure, the sprinkler will open and spray water. Sprinkler heads are rated for temperature, whether the temperature is from a very hot ambient air temperature or an active fire situation. Know what kind of temperatures your facility is exposed to, and factor those conditions into the choice of sprinkler head temperature activation for that area.

Freezing

Sprinkler systems in Queens are susceptible to the effects of cold temperatures as well as hot. Fire systems that use water can be severely damaged if the water within the pipes freezes. Anti-freeze chemicals can be added to the water in the system to prevent freezing, and some fire sprinkler systems remain dry or empty (thus obviating any freezing) until a fire is detected.

Corrosion

Constant exposure to water within the system’s metal pipes and fixtures can lead to areas of rust or corrosion in the system that may present a condition for a catastrophic failure of the system. Annual inspections of the system are effective at identifying and moving to repair any faulty system components.

Mechanics

Faults in the sprinkler system may be the result of disuse or improper installation (overtightening connections, etc.). An experienced fire sprinkler installation company in Queens with solid references will stand by their work if these types of failures are discovered.

Human Error

Most sprinkler systems in Queens fail because of some sort of human interference with the system like tampering with the exposed fire sprinkler heads. Hanging material from the systems pipes, heads, or valves is a direct detriment to the system and may affect its performance when it is called upon. Bumps, strikes, or illegal adjustments to the system can compromise the sprinkler’s firefighting capabilities or cause the system to fail entirely.

Types of Fire Sprinkler Systems

Fire suppression systems, sprinklers, in New York City save lives and keep properties safe from catastrophe when a fire breaks out. We’ve become used to seeing the fire sprinkler systems’ components overheads as sprinkler heads, on the walls as standpipe connections, and even behind the scenes as annunciator panels for alarms. Recognizing these components as life-saving security devices allows us all to focus on the more immediate aspects of our busy lives. But consider the fire sprinkler system in all its forms. Sprinkler systems in New York typically are one of four types of systems designed to retard or extinguish a building fire.

Pre-action systems. Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are designed to work in conjunction with a smoke or heat detector. Pre-action systems work so that no water is actually in the system’s pipes until a fire is detected and the system is called upon to fight it. Pipes are typically filled with air until an alarm goes off. Two switches then activate to release the air in the system and to being flowing water through the pipes to the sprinkler heads. This kind of system is preferred in facilities with contents that may suffer from water damage when the system activates; installations in libraries, museums, and computer rooms.

Dry-pipe systems. Dry-pipe systems are similar to pre-action systems in that the pipes hold no water until a fire is detected and the system is activated. Once activated, the system releases the air in the pipes as the water fills them. Dry-pipe fire sprinkler systems are ideal for applications where the facility is unheated. Water in the pipes of an unheated structure can freeze and rupture the pipes. Relieving the system from carrying water constantly removes the chance for water to freeze.

Wet-pipe systemsWet-pipe fire suppression systems constantly hold water in the pipes of the sprinkler system. Wet-pipe systems are the quickest to react and actually get water on the fire, and these types of systems are commonly found in high-rise office and apartment buildings. Wet-pipe systems are typically low maintenance and highly effective.

Deluge systems. Deluge fire sprinkler systems have nozzles that are fixed open and when the system is activated by smoke or heat detector, the pump water through the system and out the heads to flood an area with water or chemicals to fight the fire. Facilities with a lot of floor space or sprawling foot prints benefit most from a deluge system of fire suppression.

The fire sprinkler system heads we see above us in so many public spaces are there to keep us safe from a fire. We take for granted that these systems are life savers and not just building-code requirements. These fire suppression systems are sophisticated systems delivering a very basic service: water to extinguish a fire. And because these systems are not constantly active, but rather they lay in wait for the unexpected to strike, their maintenance and repair are critical functions during down time.

The Seven Types of Fire Sprinkler Systems

  • Wet pipe systems—are the most commonly experienced fire suppression system in use today. Wet pipe systems supply pressurized water through pipes and to sprinkler heads installed throughout the building. When a fire is detected, the sprinkler heads in the affected areas activate and rain water down on the fire. Wet pipe systems are effective, reliable, and easy to maintain.
  • Dry pipe systems—probably the second-most-common type of fire suppression system in use today. These systems do not hold water within the pipes, which could burst if they ever froze. A positive air pressure is maintained in the pipe to keep closed a check valve to prevent water intrusion from other sources, like other pipes. Dry pipe systems are most often used in facilities that go unheated during cold winter weather (like parking garages). When a fire is detected, a valve releases the air pressure within the system, and that allows water to flow freely to extinguish the fire.
  • Deluge systems—a fire suppression system where all the sprinkler heads that are connected to the water deliver pipes “open” (i.e., not individually activated). No water is present in the pipes on a constant basis, like a dry pipe system. When a separate fire detection system detects a fire, it sends a signal to open a valve and lets water freely on the fire.
  • Pre-action systems—are specially activated systems used in such facilities as museums and libraries. Pre-action systems combine the features wet, dry, and deluge systems to protect valuable installations from accidental or indiscriminate fire suppression methods.
  • Foam water sprinkler systems—uses a mixture of foam and water through special nozzles to encapsulate a burning transformer, fuel tank, or vehicle.
  • Water spray—similar to foam water sprinkler systems, but spraying only water.
  • Water mist systems—sprays tiny droplets of water into the atmosphere where a fire is present. The effect is to cool the atmosphere and reduce heat damage from the fire.
