Model GW-S Standard Response automatic sprinklers (5 mm glass bulb) offer RTIs of over 80. They are available in a range of standard finishes (brass, chrome and coloured) and temperatures (57, 68, 79, 93, 141 and 182 °C). Special purpose materials and finishes are available including Electroless Nickel Plating (ENP), standard grade 316 and special grade SMO austenitic stainless steels, nickel aluminium bronze and titanium.
Model GW-S Quick Response automatic sprinklers (3mm glass bulb) offer RTIs of less than 50. They are available in a range of standard finishes (brass, chrome and coloured) and temperatures (57, 68, 79, 93 and 141 °C). Special purpose materials and finishes are available including Electroless Nickel Plating (ENP), standard grade 316 and special grade SMO austenitic stainless steels, nickel aluminium bronze and titanium.
While our standard sprinklers are manufactured from brass, we offer several special finshes and materials for maximum corrosion resistance and operating life in even the toughest industrial or marine environments. A common application is salt-laden air in coastal or offshore locations. These include Electroless Nickel Plating (ENP), high grade stainless steels (SS316 and SMO254), nickel aluminium bronze and titanium.
Typical applications for stainless steel sprinklers (where corrosive atmosphere exist) • Chemical and Petrochemical Processing • Pharmaceutical Processing • Food and Beverage Processing • Power Generation—nuclear • Marine • Pulp and Paper • Medical • Textiles • Petroleum Refining • Water Treatment • Salt-water areas • Parking garages • Chemical storage areas • Mechanical rooms • Industrial manufacturing sites
Electrically actuated sprinklers provide the option of designing "intelligent" pro-active sprinkler systems. Each individual sprinkler head can be operated individually through the programming of the fire detection system. Thus a single, or a number of sprinklers in the area of detection can be actuated instantly when the early fire is detected, thus allowing for fast containment and suppression of the fire. Electrical actuation of sprinklers thus significantly speeds up the release of water onto the fire, compared to the time otherwise required for the fire to develop to a size where the sprinkler is released by heat. Detection of the fire will typically be by means of heat, smoke or flame detection - or combinations of these. An electrically actuated sprinkler will operate both as a "normal" heat-actuated sprinkler AND as a remotely controlled sprinkler actuated by electrical signal, thus offering double purpose protection. These specialist sprinkler heads incorporate electrically activated Metron Actuators. An electrical signal from a detection device ignites a small quantity of explosive that forces a piston to extend into and break the glass bulb. They operate within milliseconds of receiving an impulse, a rate which is almost imossible to achieve with a mechanical source of energy.
