Removing as much of the deposits and adherents as possible helps restore the flow rate of the system and allows for effective treatment of the pipe.
As an option, treating both wet and dry sprinkler systems with Nitrogen adds even greater protection against oxygen corrosion and aerobic bacteria. A Nitrogen Generator will pressurize a system with Nitrogen gas and eliminate nearly all the gaseous oxygen and remove dissolved Oxygen from the water.
Minimizing Oxygen corrosion makes it more difficult for MIC to start a colony.
Treatment also includes installation of a Corrosion Monitoring Station.
A Corrosion Monitoring Station contains Corrosion Coupons that can be pulled periodically and tested to ensure there has been no recurrence of MIC.
The Corrosion Monitoring Station can be isolated from the fire sprinkler system to allow the coupons to be pulled without putting the entire system into Test mode.
Corrosion Monitoring Stations are installed in both wet and dry systems.
