Wet Sprinkler Systems:
Wet pipe systems are the most common fire sprinkler system. A wet pipe system is one in which water is constantly present within the sprinkler piping. When a sprinkler activates, this water is immediately discharged onto the fire. While it is a popular choice due to the ease of installation and match-less protection, it is not suited for all climates. The pipes in a wet pipe sprinkler system are always filled with water and are at risk of freezing in environments below 40°F.
Dry Pipe Systems:
Dry Pipe Systems are designed explicitly for buildings susceptible to freezing; dry pipe sprinkler systems feature automatic and closed-type sprinkler heads connected to pipes filled with pressurized air or nitrogen. The compressed air holds a remote valve, known as a dry pipe valve, in a closed position. The dry-pipe valve prevents water from entering the pipe until a fire causes one or more sprinklers to operate. Once this happens, the air escapes, and the dry pipe valve releases. Water then enters the pipe, flowing through open sprinklers onto the fire.
A Pre-Action fire sprinkler system is a combination of Wet Pipe and Dry Pipe Systems. Water is not stored in the pipes until a fire detection device senses a fire. When a fire is detected, the device opens a valve to let the water in before the sprinkler heads open. When the sprinkler heads open, the Pre-Action fire sprinkler system reacts as quickly as a wet pipe system.
Often referred to as open sprinklers, deluge systems deliver large quantities of water over specified areas over a short time. Deluge systems are connected to a water supply through a deluge valve that is opened by the operation of a smoke or heat detection system. The detection system is installed in the same area as the sprinklers. When the detection system is activated, water discharges through all of the sprinkler heads in the system.
Foam is used whenever there is a possibility of a liquid fire. The Foam will mix with water and then expand over the liquid on the fire, cool the fire, and will finally suffocate it.
