N2-Blast™ - Corrosion Inhibiting System

"The Green Solution to Inhibiting Corrosion"

PRODUCT SOLUTIONS CORROSION RESOURCES CERTIFICATION PROGRAM FPS HOME PAGE

Inhibit problematic sprinkler pipe corrosion with the N2-Blast® - Corrosion Inhibiting System designed and manufactured by South-Tek Systems. The N2-Blast introduces high purity (98%+) corrosion inhibiting Nitrogen into the Fire Protection System to maintain supervisory pressure. This inert, non-flammable gas displaces Oxygen within the sprinkler system removing the thermodynamic driving force necessary for the corrosion reaction to take place.

Sprinkler Pipe Corrosion

  • Catastrophic/Pinhole leaks
  • Property/Equipment Damage
  • Costly ongoing repairs
  • Pipe and/or system replacement
  • Renders Fire Protection System (FPS) inoperable in the event of a fire
  • Increases friction factors; hydraulic calculations no longer valid
  • Sprinkler head blockage

Frequently Asked Sprinkler Pipe Corrosion Questions

  • Will Nitrogen inhibit Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC)?
  • What history or data is there that nitrogen in fact stops Corrosion?
  • How does Nitrogen inhibit SRB and APB, which do not need oxygen or prefer Oxygen depletion?
  • How does Nitrogen stop MIC when SRB and APB do not NEED Oxygen and prefer an Oxygen Free environment? Nitrogen can only reduce Oxygen corrosion, not anaerobic bacteria, right?
