I'm explaining how fire alarm systems work for new technicians or other employees who deal with these systems. This is my 18th video in a string of many Khan Academy-styled lessons. This video introduces how dry sprinkler systems work and how they are monitored by the fire alarm panel.
In this video from the Know More Risk series, learn about the arrangement and operating principles of a typical differential pressure dry pipe valve riser. Dry sprinkler systems are used where piping is subject to freezing. Dry systems are more complex than wet systems.

في بداية الحريق ترتفتع درجة حرارة المكان ويتم تمدد السائل داخل الرشاش لتنكسر زجاج الرشاش ويبدأ الغاز المضغموط في الخروج ليقل الضغط يعمل الضاغط لتعويض الفقدان في ضغط الغاز ولكنه يكون غير كافي وتعمل quick open device علي مساعدة dry pipe valve في سرعة الاستجابه ليفتح المحبس وتمر الميياه في اتجاه الرشاش وتبدأ الجوكي في العمل لتعوض الانخفاض في الضغط لكن تكون غير كافيه فتعمل المضخه الرئيسيه في العمل وبذلك يكون نظام الاطفاء الجاف تم تنشبطه بكل مكوناته
This was an epic fail the water pressure was just to much. These sprinklers are meant to be outside. The way a dry fire sprinkler system works is, all of the pipe that is outside is full of compressed air. Then when the pipes get inside they are full of pressured water. It is like this because the water in the pipes could freeze. This was a simple test that mimics a sprinkler head bursting. Follow me on Twitter! https://twitter.com/SER_Safety Thanks! :D ©S.E.R.

There's a big fire in the building and suddenly all the sprinklers turn on -- that's not really how works. Let science extinguish this myth.

The FlameGuard DSPA-5 is a life saving product that can choke a fire in a matter of seconds. It’s an ideal tool for marine use. We’d like to encourage our customers—particularly commercial fishing operations and enterprise fisherman—to purchase the portable FlameGuard DSPA product to assist them in fire suppression at sea or at dockside.
An alarm valve prevents a reverse flow of water from the installation into the fire-pump room, but in case a fire sprinkler is activated (opened) due to fire, the alarm valve will open and permit water flow into the system. Alarm valve prevents a reverse flow of water or air pressure from the installation into the fire-pump room. In case a fire sprinkler is activated (opened) due to fire, the alarm valve will open and permit water flow into the system and a pressure switch gives a signal to activate the fire-pump. There are different types of alarm valves that need to match the fire sprinkler installation – wet pipe system, dry pipe system. Deluge system etc. Almost all alarm valves are listed by a listing authority like VdS, FM, UL etc.
Vancouver Fire Sprinkler System Inspection & Service http://www.bartecfire.com/sprinkler-repair-service/ Sprinklers provide a vital role in protecting a building from fire. When testing a dry sprinkler system, a technician will simulate sprinkler head activation by opening an inspector’s test located at the farthest point of the system. Another technician will observe the activation of the valve in the mechanical room. Once the valve is activated the trip timing and pressures are recorded before the valve is closed and drained. The cover plate can then be removed and the interior of the valve inspected. If the clapper and seat are in good condition and free of debris the valve can be reset and depressurized. The fire alarm panel is checked to confirm alarm and supervisory signals were rec...
When dry spots appear around sprinkler heads in summer, there is often a spacing problem that needs to be corrected. In Part 8 of our Drought Solutions video series, you’ll discover why you shouldn’t completely trust the manufacturer’s specifications and learn a few approaches that can help you properly space heads.
Dry Pipe Sprinkler Systems are designed for applications where piping and sprinklers are subjected to freezing temperatures, such as unheated warehouses, parking garages, store windows, attic spaces, or loading docks. The sprinkler system contains gas instead of water.The dry pipe valve with special clapper keep the pressured water by low air pressure. In case of fire, sprinkler activated and the differantial of the system is broke down and ıt causes to open clapper. After the sprinkler activated by the fire the air in the sprinkler system is discharged from the sprinkler sysytem. The water is sent to location of the fire.By the time clapper opens the water also is sent to pressure switch and the switch send alarm information to fire warning system or automation system. After the switch i...
