Warm oxygen and pooled water increase the chances of corrosion.
- Each time the compressor cycles on it introduces warm, moist oxygen into the fire sprinkler piping. More oxygen equals more corrosion. More corrosion equals more leaks.
- Condensate water from the compressor is acidic and it accelerates the corrosion reaction.
- Each pool of trapped water within the dry pipe system is a potential source for corrosion to occur, so every trip event will cause additional corrosion.
