Recently, ORR Protection Systems has fielded an increased number of questions regarding Video Smoke Detection and Video Flame Detection through our "Ask an Expert" portal. Since the interest seems to be increasing we thought it would be helpful to post the most frequently asked questions about this type of detection.
ORR Protection Systems will be hosting its annual seminar series, A Morning with the Experts, beginning in March and running through the end of May. The series travels from east to west, reaching cities throughout the U.S. and brings with it knowledgeable Fire Protection System experts presenting industry leading training and information.

Both wet and dry systems have corrosion issues, but they are dramatically worse in dry systems.
