Speaker: Lucas Kirn, PE

Organization: Engineered Corrosion Solutions, LLC

Topic: Nitrogen Inerting for Corrosion Control in Fire Sprinkler Systems - Theory and Practice

Bio - Lucas Kirn

Topical Outline - Controlling Corrosion in Fire Sprinkler Systems

Presentation Description: This presentation discusses the benefits and practical application of using Nitrogen Gas to inert Wet and Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler Systems to prevent and manage internal corrosion. Under a nitrogen atmosphere, oxygen corrosion, which is the primary cause of corrosion related failures in sprinkler systems, can be completely controlled resulting in reduced risk (life safety, leak and business continuity), enhanced performance, and extended life of the fire sprinkler system. Excluding oxygen from both wet and dry (preaction) pipe fire sprinkler system piping by purging with nitrogen gas can reduce the corrosion rate in a fire sprinkler system by 99% and significantly extend the useful life of the piping.
