A Company of Industry Firsts

  •  First to identify oxygen corrosion as the primary corrosion mechanism for corrosion failures in water based fire sprinkler systems (several publications)
  • First to deploy a nitrogen generator with integral venting of the fire sprinkler piping to achieve extinction of oxygen in-situ from dry pipe fire sprinkler systems for control of oxygen corrosion – Dry Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (DPNI) (patent pending)
  • First to identify the acute vulnerability of galvanized steel piping to aggressive attack by oxygen in persistently moist, oxygenated environments with dry pipe fire sprinkler systems (several publications)
  • First to identify the cause of weld seam corrosion in water based fire sprinkler systems (several publications)
  • First to utilize an integral gas analyzer with live digital output signal to provide fire sprinkler system pipeline gas composition directly to the building management system (patent pending)
  • First to design a pre-engineered, skid-mounted, “plug and play” nitrogen generator that performs Dry Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (DPNI) and then maintains the inerted nitrogen atmosphere within the piping (patent pending)
  • First to design and deploy the Wet Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (WPNI) process and demonstrate complete cessation of corrosion related leaks
  • First to design a process for performing Wet Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (WPNI) in multi-story wet pipe facilities (patent pending)
  • First to design a portable nitrogen generator for use in performing the Wet Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (WPNI) process on multiple wet pipe fire sprinkler systems in a facility
  • First to design and utilize corrosion monitoring coupons that are sensitive to oxygen  corrosion (patent pending)
  • First to design a SMART Dry Inerting Vent that closes automatically after the dry pipe environment has been completely nitrogen inerted
  • First to design a SMART Wet Inerting Vent that closes successfully vents trapped gas from the wet pipe fire sprinkler piping and closes automatically when water arrives at the vent;  vent can also be monitored (patent pending)
  • First to design an In-Line Corrosion Monitor that can provide live “early warning” to the owner that corrosion is occurring within the fire sprinkler system (patent pending)
  • First to design a supervised nitrogen cylinder Dry Pipe Nitrogen Inerting (DPNI) system for use with small dry and preaction fire sprinkler systems (patent pending)
