Delran, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2019 -- Headquartered in Delran, NJ and serving the Tri-state area, AMC Fire Protection is the prime source for fire protection services in Atlantic County. This month, the company is providing tips and advice on how to prevent dry sprinkler systems from freezing during the winter months.
AMC Fire Protection advises placing compressors in cool, dry places to prevent damp, moisture-filled air from penetrating the air intake, as the moisture can easily condense, pool, and freeze in the pipes. They also recommend installing valved drains at all of the low points and opening them periodically to make sure that the pipes are completely free of water, as well as repairing or replacing damaged sprinkler hangers for correct piping pitch.
Additionally, AMC Fire Protection recommends making a point to repair all air leaks within one's system to keep the valve from tripping in case the compressor loses power, in addition to providing a dry pipe enclosure to keep the supply piping's water from freezing.
Finally, the company recommends that, if it is feasible, one should position the water supply pipe to come up from the floor in the center of the enclosure. However, if the space underneath the floor has considerable airspace, one should insulate the pipe by placing earth or sand over the exposed portion of the pipe.
