The CORRinSITE™ Corrosion Monitors from AGF were developed in response to the increase of corrosion related failures in fire protection systems. Available in an in-line pipe (Model 7700) and mechanical tee (Model 7800), CORRinSITE provides a maintenance-free method to monitor for hidden corrosion problems in fire protection systems.
The monitors can be installed in wet or dry fire systems. AGF recommends installing these at the floor control; water main; branch line; and end of line areas of fire systems.
The CORRinSITE is manufactured from the same mild carbon steel as the system piping, and its surface corrodes as the pipe corrodes. When the monitor corrodes beyond its limit, moisture penetrates the sealed chamber and transforms the brilliant white sight glass to a fluorescent orange color. This indicates a corrosion problem and need for further investigation.
The Model 7700 In-Line Pipe Corrosion Monitor is suitable for new construction and can be retrofitted into existing fire protection systems. It is available in schedule 10 or 40, powder coated black steel or galvanized pipe.
The Model 7800 Mechanical Tee Corrosion Monitor is suitable for retrofitting into existing fire protection systems and is available with a painted red or galvanized steel mechanical tee.
