Fire Sprinkler Flow Test

Fire Sprinkler System Testing

Sprinklers are activated by hot air. Most sprinklers contain a glass bulb with liquid that expands when it comes into contact with heat; this causes the glass to shatter and triggers the sprinkler system.

This automated system has the capability of dousing large areas at once without the need for staff to enter the area.

In Australia, it is necessary to carry out monthly inspections and tests of automatic sprinkler systems. Failure to do so may result in a violation of Section 2 of AS1851. Get in touch with Fyrepower today for your next Fire Sprinkler Test!

How Often Should Sprinklers Be Tested

Fire Sprinkler Inspection

Fire sprinkler inspections are required to be conducted annually by a qualified technician in accordance with the Australian Standards (AS) 1851. During an inspection, an experienced Fyrepower inspector will visually examine your fire sprinkler system for indications of wear and tear or malfunction, such as rust, corrosion, or damaged components.

  • Weekly Visual Examination: Visually examine the sprinkler heads, pipes, fittings, and hangers for any damage or corrosion.
  • Monthly Gauges Check: The gauges in the sprinkler system will be checked to ensure they are reading correctly.
  • Annual Water Flow Test: A water flow test is performed to make sure water is flowing properly through the system.
  • Biannual Alarm Test: The fire alarm system will be tested to ensure it is working correctly.
  • Annual Valves Inspection: The inspector will check the valves to ensure they are in the correct position and are not damaged.
  • Documentation: All the findings of the inspection will be recorded in a report, including any issues found, and we will provide recommendations for any necessary repairs or upgrades.

Fire Sprinkler Testing

Fire sprinkler testing is a comprehensive evaluation that involves examining all the components of the system to ensure that they are functioning correctly. Fire sprinkler testing is typically required to be conducted every five years in accordance with Australian Standards (AS) 1851.

  • Main Drain Test: The main drain valve is opened to measure the water flow rate from the water supply.
  • Water Flow Alarm Test: The water flow alarm is activated to ensure the alarm system functions properly.
  • Trip Test: The trip test is conducted to verify that the sprinklers activate properly.
  • Antifreeze Solution Test: If an anti-freeze solution is used, it is checked to ensure it is properly mixed and not contaminated.
  • Valve Operation Test: The operation of valves is checked to make sure they open and close properly.
  • Water Pressure Test: A water pressure test is conducted to verify that the water pressure in the system is sufficient.
  • Documentation: All results of the testing are recorded in a report, which includes any issues found and any necessary repairs or upgrades that may be required.

The longevity of different parts within your fire protection system can vary. For instance, gauges should be tested or replaced every five years, while dry sprinklers should be tested or replaced every ten years. It’s important to note that the replacement or testing frequency of parts can be affected by factors such as high temperatures or harsh environments. If you’re unsure about the appropriate maintenance schedule for your system, please don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance!

Fire Pump Systems

Fire pump systems are water pumps that generate high pressure to enhance the fire fighting capability of a building by elevating the pressure in the water service when the mains supply is insufficient, or in the case of a tank-fed system.

Fire hydrant pump systems are of critical importance as they can make the difference between life and death. While the hydrant or sprinkler heads are responsible for distributing water in case of a fire, it is the pump that is the most significant component of any hydrant or sprinkler system.

Without the pump to pressurize the water and transport it to the hydrant or sprinkler heads, the system cannot function effectively or contribute to the fight against fire.
