Nitrogen Generator & Corrosion Detection Equipment

The results are in! More than a decade of continuing research on fire sprinkler corrosion by our team of engineers and scientists has resulted in the collection of white papers we’ve made available here. These documents represent industry-leading research on corrosion and risk management in water-based fire sprinkler systems and have appeared in Sprinkler Age Magazine, FPC Magazine, and Mission Critical Magazine. You’ll find useful recommendations and clearly presented research for the sprinkler contractor, specifying engineer, building owner, or property manager looking to use nitrogen to manage corrosion – or simply to learn more about nitrogen systems for fire sprinkler system corrosion control.
