Corrosion Assessment.

As a part of any comprehensive fire sprinkler system corrosion assessment program, a video scope is used to collect visual evidence of corrosion activity inside the system. A pipe inspection using video scoping inside the fire sprinkler system piping provides for in-situ observation of many corrosion-related issues. Due to the highly localized nature of corrosion in fire sprinkler systems, we have found that other non-destructive methods of pipe investigation are severely limited in their ability to reproduce the wealth of data provided from an internal video inspection.

ECS Corrosion Assessments Exceed the NFPA 25 requirements

An ECS Corrosion Assessment exceeds the NFPA 25 five (5) year internal investigation requirement and provides usable data that offers more cost-effective, system specific remediation options besides total system replacement.

CORROSION ASSESSMENT.

The Cost of Failure

Trapped Air/Water

  • Visual evidence of trapped air in wet pipe fire sprinkler systems and trapped water in dry pipe fire sprinkler systems.

Corrosion Damage

  • Visual evidence of corrosion damage, debris, and metal loss on the piping – useful in the selection of locations for pipe replacement and/or flushing.

Obstructions

  • Visual evidence of internal piping or sprinkler obstructions that would prevent fire sprinkler system from activating during a fire event.
