Automatic Sprinkler Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

Introduction

When a lift truck struck and broke a sprinkler head in a warehouse, a member of the plant emergency organization was dispatched to close the sprinkler control valve. He was unable to turn it completely closed.

This necessitated the closure of two sectional control valves to completely shut off the flowing water. Closure of the sectional control valves took four other sprinkler systems out-of-service. This made the facility very vulnerable to destruction should a fire occur.

If the sprinkler control valve had been properly maintained, the extent and duration of the impairment would have been greatly reduced.
