32 2007 Western Operations Roundup 2007 Western Operations Nevada District Offices WSCA Fire Suppression Services NFPA 25 – Obstruction Investigation Corrosion is a naturally occurring destructive process Corrosion develops in systems which have metal, untreated water and air/oxygen in repeated and prolonged contact with each other. Both wet & dry fire sprinkler systems are continually subject to these conditions. The National Fire Protection Association requires: – An investigation of piping and branch line conditions every 5 years. – Also requires evaluating any deposits found inside the piping for indications of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)

33 2007 Western Operations Roundup 2007 Western Operations Nevada District Offices WSCA Fire Suppression Services MIC Water Test Sampling and Deposit Test Allows for quick and inexpensive assessment of the internal corrosion activity in a facilitys fire sprinkler system. Identifies any build-up of corrosion products such as tubercles, mounds, particulates, solids, etc. found in a fire sprinkler systems. Tests for specific bacteria types commonly associated with microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). Results available 10 days after receipt of the sample by the laboratory. Includes explanation and general recommendations. SimplexGrinnells FPS MIC Water Test Sampling and Deposit Analysis Test
