Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System

A dry pipe fire sprinkler system is a type of sprinkler system that uses compressed air or nitrogen to charge the sprinkler lines, keeping the system “dry.” A broken head vents air, lowering the pressure and opening a valve to allow water to flow. They are often used in areas where sprinkler lines could freeze, such as large freezers or outdoor covered docks.

The Alphabot® system requires a fire protection solution that can be deployed in sub-freezing temperatures because it contains three temperature zones: ambient, refrigerated and frozen. A dry pipe system treated with a chemical antifreeze would most likely be used.
