PLACENTIA, CALIFORNIA— (WiredPRNews.com) — The owner of a fire suppression system company that installs Santa Ana fire systems recently released a list of the top four reasons businesses should have routine fire suppression system inspections.
Nationwide Fire Protection Corp., which provides services for Santa Ana fire alarm systems, frequently finds systems with clogged link lines, or systems that have been poorly installed or don’t meet current codes, said Massoud Farazandeh, general manager of Nationwide Fire Protection Corp. In August, NFP opened a Placentia, CA satellite location to better serve its California clients, including Santa Ana, CA fire sprinkler systems clients.
There are several common problems Farazandeh identifies when inspecting fire suppression systems and hood systems. Following are his top four reasons that businesses could maintain a regular fire suppression system inspection schedule:
• Keep fusible link line conduits free of grease. Grease in the conduits has been known to prevent the system from properly setting off in the event of a fire.
• Ensure proper cable connections. Sometimes, the cable doesn’t travel properly to set off the system. The cable is connected to the fusible link line and sets off the mechanical head system. This discharges fire suppression chemicals to put out a fire if it breaks out.
• Make sure electrical interlocking is in place. If it isn’t, this can keep a fire suppression system from working properly. In the event of a fire, the electrical interlocking starts up the exhaust fan, turns off the Makeup Air Unit and turns off electrical appliances, lights and outlets in and under the hood. In some cases, the electrical interlocking also discontinues gas flow.
• Check nozzle caps to make sure they are in place. Farazandeh often conducts inspections and finds that nozzle caps are missing and the nozzles have filled with grease. If the system is set off and the nozzles are clogged, the fire suppression chemical can’t be discharged properly.
“A fire suppression system is something that you hope you never have to use,” Farazandeh said. “But if you do, you want to know that it will work properly, and the only way to do that is to have it checked routinely to ensure it is at an optimum functioning level.”
