Dry Sprinkler System Air Compressors for Fire Protection
Air Power Products Ltd. (APPL) manufactures dry sprinkler system air compressors, which are required for dry pipe sprinkler systems. Our dry sprinkler system air compressors are designed for unheated buildings/warehousing, parking garages and commercial refrigerated warehouses. In any location where water cannot be used in a sprinkler system, and a dry pipe system must be installed, our air compressors will provide the capacity and performance required.
APPL's lubricated sprinkler system compressors are designed for ease of use. These instruments are made from highest quality materials, and are proven to perform in harsh environments. The sprinklers are reliable source of compressed air for diverse industrial and commercial applications. Our lubricated sprinkler systems are designed for maintenance-free operations, and available in base plate mounted and receiver mounted models. All lubricated sprinkler system models have maximum operating pressure 60 PSIG. Any higher level adjustment is not recommended for these sprinklers.
Air Power Products Ltd. (APPL) now offers “low noise level” oil-less sprinkler air compressors for the fire protection industry. Fire sprinkler air compressors are used in unheated buildings, warehouses, commercially cooled warehouses, and parking garages. The APPL-JP200C-R14 sprinkler air compressor provides the air pressure required in dry pipe systems to maintain system integrity on a day-to-day basis. As the failure of a dry pipe compressor could result in system pressure loss, nuisance alarm, system flooding and expensive fire department visits, APPL takes all precautions to ensure our compressors are fully tested and represent the highest quality standards available.
Features of Dry Sprinkler System Air Compressors
The sprinkler systems comprise pressurized air within the piping. The pressurized air is released when the sprinkler is activated. Upon sprinkler actuation, there is a slight delay in the water discharge. At this point, the pressurized air escapes from the system, after which water flows into the piping system via a dry pipe valve.
APPL provides dry sprinkler system air compressors with the following features:
• Maximum pressure: 60 PSIG
• Both baseplate-mount and receiver-mount units
• Receiver Size Range: 14 to 120 gallons
• Standard system sizes with capacities ranging from 242 to 1600 gallons
• Motor voltages to suit user specifications.
