We believe you deserve to be able to speak with confidence and sell the right solutions to your customers, knowing they’re going to perform well.
When you work with us, you’re working with a dedicated team of innovators and engineers experts in nitrogen generation systems and fire sprinkler corrosion who are as invested in your success as you are. Because when you look good, we look good.
We’re the only company that specifically focuses on corrosion and fire protection.
ECS is well-educated on corrosion and the products needed. It is excellent to work with such a knowledgeable and helpful team.*
The 139,000 square foot Museum and Visitor Center is a LEED Gold certified building. The Foundation is highly focused on protecting the history and safety of the national treasures within the building. One area of concern was the presence of corrosion inside the fire sprinkler system which could eventually cause failures in our fire protection.
With the help of ECS and BFPE educational seminars, it was determined that a Nitrogen Generator System would best fit the Visitor Center requirements. In 2014, the Foundation collaborated with ECS and BFPE on a design plan to install the PGEN-40 Nitrogen Generator System.

A data center in the Atlanta area was originally built in 2009. The fire sprinkler system was comprised of ten (10) preaction system, each consisting of schedule 10 mains and schedule 40 branch lines.
Implementation of a nitrogen inerting corrosion control strategy has significantly limited the internal corrosion rates in the system.
The 100,000 square foot data center was originally built and opened in 2002 with double interlock preaction fire sprinkler systems to protect the data halls. Galvanized steel piping was used for all of the preaction fire sprinkler systems. After 8 years of service leaks began to develop in the 3” galvanized schedule 10 main piping. All of the leaks occurred within the main line piping under accumulations of trapped water. The metal loss was characterized by highly localized attack with many deep singular round bottomed pits beneath the trapped pools of water.
Despite the significant damage found during the assessment, no fire sprinkler system piping was replaced within the facility prior to the installation of the ECS nitrogen generator system. Under a nitrogen atmosphere the corrosion in the fire sprinkler system piping would be stopped, even in locations with trapped pools of water. Since repair of initial leaks and installation of the ECS PGEN‐20 nitrogen generator there have been no recorded additional leaks within the preaction fire sprinkler systems in the facility.
