Dry Sprinkler System
A dry sprinkler system? You’re right. It sounds like it doesn’t make sense, but these systems are useful in areas where heating is inadequate and the the temperature can drop below 40°c. A dry sprinkler system holds water in a pressurized chamber. Once pressure drops, the clapper opens within the sprinkler riser and allows water to flow throughout the system to put out the fire. Is there a concern with dry sprinkler systems? Yes. Water needs to reach the furthest sprinkler head from the riser within 60 seconds or less.
Wet Sprinkler System
A wet sprinkler system holds water throughout the entire sprinkler piping system. Once the heat-activated sprinkler heads detect the heat generated by a fire, the water is released to extinguish the blaze.
