There are a variety of technologies on the market for filling dry pipe sprinkler systems namely compressed air, dry air and nitrogen. Each technology comes with its own pluses and minuses. When it comes to a freezer room or cold storage facility there is one solution available that works best – dry air.

This webinar will go through the factors that make dry air the clear choice for freezer room air supplies. Attendees will come away with an understanding of how air supplies affect the functionality of freezer room and cold storage dry and pre-action fire sprinkler systems and how to make sure that the unit continues to run efficiently and effectively.

There are a variety of technologies on the market for filling dry pipe and pre-action fire sprinkler systems – namely compressed air, dry air and nitrogen. Each technology comes with its own pluses and minuses. Some might be surprised to know that no one type is the best fit for every application!

So how is one supposed to make the best air supply decision?

In this class we will review the available technologies, examine the pro’s and con’s of each type and discuss corrosion mitigation from both a design and field level perspective. Additionally we will provide attendees with a series of in-depth questions designed to help you decide if a particular air supply technology is the right fit for a given application.
