- Highest level of functional performance, since the valves are insensitive to corrosion and scale particles
- Fast fire extinguishing due to high levels of pressure and large orifices (DN50)
- Time and cost savings, as direct installation in the extinguishing line is possible
- Highest level of safety performance, since the valve can be opened manually (e.g. in case of a power outage)
Sprinkler heads have seals held in place by glass bulbs that break if heated above a set temperature. The level of gas pressure within a sprinkler system is constant and monitored by a pressure sensor. If the bulb breaks due to a fire or if it is damaged, the level of gas pressure drops and the pressure sensor activates the water valve. Seeing as the bulb may be damaged accidentally during daily operation, the water valve is additionally monitored by a smoke alarm during daily operation. As a result, damage does not automatically lead to activation of the water supply to the sprinkler. The formation of particles, scale or corrosion is not uncommon as the water pressure sits in the pipeline and at the valve without moving. Nevertheless, the media-separated solenoid valves ensure sprinkler systems have the capacity to supply contaminated extinguishing water reliably whenever it is required. Property insurers have complete trust in the high level of switching accuracy.
