Nitrogen generation systems protect steel pipes in dry and pre-action sprinkler systems from corrosion. The concepts behind corrosion and MIC are explained in this blog:Understanding Corrosion and Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) Both wet and dry (pre-action) sprinkler systems have corrosion issues, but they are dramatically worse in pre-action and dry pipe sprinkler systems.
New and existing sprinkler systems can benefit by the application of a nitrogen generation system. For new sprinkler installations, application of nitrogen can dramatically improve the lifespan of the system. For existing installations where corrosion has already started, the piping can be preserved by using nitrogen instead of compressed air. Nitrogen can add considerable useful life to the sprinkler system.
Nitrogen generation systems:
Pre-Engineered Plug and Play Systems
Up to 950 gallons total sprinkler system capacity
Integral oil-less air compressor
