Wet & Dry risers

There are different types of Risers such as :
• Wet-Pipe Systems are the most common type of system used. The pipe work is constantly charged with water and when the sprinkler head activates water discharges from the sprinkler heads immediately. These systems are appropriate for permanently heated buildings.

• Dry-pipe installations are appropriate for applications either where there is a danger of the water in the pipes freezing or in situations where there may be temperatures above about 70 degrees c. In a dry-pipe system the pipework downstream of the installation control valve is charged with air which is under sufficient pressure to prevent the entry of water into the delivery pipe work. Once the first sprinkler head operates the compressed air escapes through the head, the control valve opens to allow water to flow into the system pipework.
With Dry-pipe systems there is a time delay in releasing the air from the system before water discharges from the sprinkler heads. For this reason Dry-pipe systems are limited in size, generally to half the size of a wet-pipe system, and in some cases require more flow and pressure from the water supplies to cater for more sprinkler heads operating before water is discharged. For this reason consideration should be given to other means of frost protection, such as trace heating and lagging the sprinkler pipework.
Dry risers also are systems of vertical pipe work which are used to get water to the upper floors of a building in the event of a fire. Should a fire break out in a building with a dry riser installed then fire fighters will use this as the easiest way to get large amounts of water up to the fire floor, pumping it up via a ground floor inlet box, often found in staircases or other accessible locations.

• Alternate Wet & Dry Pipe Systems are just that. They operate as either type and allow the premises occupier to protect the premises with a wet-pipe installation in the summer and a dry-pipe installation in winter. The same conditions on the size of the system and the water supplies apply here as for the Dry-system.
